Shuffleboard really is the perfect game for a state like Michigan. With our long winters keeping us inside for months on end (is it summer yet?), we need something entertaining and fun, that’s easy-to-learn but takes years to master. Shuffleboard checks all the boxes and is a great way to spend a cozy evening with friends and family for some light-hearted competition on some hardwood.
There are places to play shuffleboard in Metro Detroit but you have to know where to go and make sure you don’t show up on league night. Then there’s drive-time, parking, food, beverages and, of course, the cost of playing the game itself. All of this is followed by a possibly snowy, late-night drive home- trying to dodge the other guy. Sounds terrible, right? So what’s the solution?
Well, if you have the space, the best solution is having your very own shuffleboard table at home! Ranging in length from regulation 22’ to the relatively short 9’, you don’t need to own a castle to fit one of these into your home- just a little extra square footage and some friends to play against.
The Game Room Guys’ showroom in Livonia, Michigan has a wonderful selection of shuffleboard tables we offer to our wide range of customers to fit their needs.
So let’s take a stroll around and look at a few of the models we have on display…
Champion Shuffleboard Venetian
The Champion Shuffleboard Venetian oozes elegance and exudes excellence with its timeless design and come-hither curves.
Y-shaped braces support the sturdy cradle that securely holds the 3” solid, polymer coated maple playfield in place. All Champion Shuffleboard playfields are coated in their polymer finish that never needs to be refinished, for a lifetime of worry- free game play. This polymer coating over the Canadian Maple plank provides one of the best playing surfaces in the world.
Cradle features ends and gutters with carpeting to protect and soften the impact of errant pucks during game play. This also dampens the sound during matches, for quieter competition.
Playfield climatic adjusters, on the underside of the playfield, make leveling and adjusting your shuffleboard easier than ever before. This allows for your playfield to be adjusted specifically to your liking or altered when seasonal conditions impact the playing surface.
Score can be kept on a traditional abacus score keeper or an optional electronic scoring unit can be purchased with the table. Score is then easily kept by using the red or blue buttons at either end of the table, with player’s points clearly displayed on the attractive scoreboard centered above the middle of the table.
The Venetian is designed to be modern enough for contemporary decors while not losing any of the class or elegance that might already hold sway in any given environment. This is a great piece not only to play on but also to admire.
Champion Shuffleboard Grand Champion
The Grand Champion shuffleboard is everything you would expect in a tournament-level table and more! Red Oak veneer cradle blends seamlessly into the solid Oak legs with light inlaid maple accents highlighting the table’s exquisite lines.
Playfield climatic adjusters, on the underside of the playfield, make leveling and adjusting your shuffleboard a breeze. This coupled with leg levelers give the table the ability to have a perfectly level and adjusted playfield regardless of location.
All Champion Shuffleboard playfields are coated in their polymer finish that never needs to be refinished. This coating over the Canadian Maple plank provides one of the best play surfaces in the world- this is what the pros play on!
Like other Champion Tables, the playfield can be chosen in a variety of lengths to fit almost any sized area, from 12’ to 22’ long.
State-of-the-art electronics enable players to keep score via buttons on either end of the unit, which is displayed on the easy-to-read, optional electronic scoreboard. The scoreboard, when installed, fits perfectly over the middle of the playfield for clear visibility for both sides. Otherwise, players can choose to keep score on abacus units that mount to either end of the cradle.
Carpeting lines and protects gutters and ends of the inside of the cradle, keeping the unit looking great even after years of use and countless games. The carpet also acts as a sound dampener during game play.

Champion Shuffleboard Champion Qualifier
Retro appeal abounds with its soft, rounded corners and darker laminate options. With an almost mid-century modern design, this table will look great in any family room, office or man cave.
Black trim and side walls outline the sturdy frame as carpeting covers the inside and ends of the cradle protecting it from stray pucks and their hard edges. The carpet will also make for a quieter game, absorbing the loud impacts of the heavy pucks.
Available in 3 different sizes to accommodate most space limitations, the cradle is supported by 2 sturdy legs (3 for 14’) and ships in 3 easy- to-construct parts, making it easy to assemble and also to be taken apart for storage- a great feature where space may be at a premium.
Playfield climatic adjusters, on the underside of the playfield, make leveling and adjusting your shuffleboard simple and straight-forward. This, coupled with leg levelers, gives the table the ability to have a perfectly level and adjusted playfield regardless of location. With so many points for leveling and adjustments, the Qualifier can be tweaked to just where you want it for your style of play.
The optional electronic scoring unit makes keeping score simple and mounts above the middle of the playfield for both sides to easily see. Abacus scoring assemblies can be mounted to the cradle for an alternative to the scoreboard option.
Combining retro appeal with Champion’s legacy for quality, the Qualifier will not only meet your expectations for a great shuffleboard, but may even redefine them!
Simple, straight-forward and ready for a no-nonsense game of shuffleboard, the 9’ Black Onyx Shuffleboard is perfect for someone with a lot of enthusiasm for the game but not a lot of space.
With a formal button-down appearance, the Black Onyx features a 1.5” by 16” playfield of birch veneer over MDF, surrounded and supported by the sturdy black cradle. The playfield is then then coated with 1/8” polymer resin for durability and faster play- giving each shot the accuracy and consistency you need.
Space-saving table also has a space-saving drawer for added convenience. Mounted under the cabinet and hidden out-of-site, the drawer is perfect for storing your pucks, wax, brush or whatever else you need to keep organized and out of the way. Yet another great feature for the shuffleboard player with space in mind.
Sturdy box legs, with levelers, support the playfield that comes equipped with climatic adjusters to ensure a level table for accurate game play anywhere. Climatic adjusters allow the surface to be adjusted specifically how you want it when the board changes due to seasonal changes.
Keep track of how many points you are up on your opponent with the shiny chrome abacus scoring mounts located on each end of the cradle.
A perfect table for those who are just getting into the sport or for the space-conscious player who doesn’t want to sacrifice quality for size.
