Some other Game tables that can be made in a giant version from fabric and/or foamcore for
your tabletop:

        Chinese Checkers (a giant version uses foamcore for a board and use balloons for
        Octopus (a velcro version of twister using dice with color cues to toss and
colored velcro
                bands for head, wrists, and ankles on each player team -- one 1/2 of team
uses the
                rough side and the other 1/2 of the team uses the fuzzy side of velcro)
        Carom's (a tabletop version of pool - played with round wooden discs and shot with
        Table Tennis (rectangular table - cover with green tablecloth, divide middle with
a net, use
                a balloon that has been weighted with a coin for the ball = an
unpredictable ball
                and paddles made from wire or coathangers covered with nylon net or

Maybe some of these ideas will help jumpstart your creative juices.
