Stretta managed to build a fully functional (and apparently quite fun) foosball table from LEGO parts –
My son is really attracted to foosball tables, and, if I’m honest, I’d have to say I am too. I considered the idea of buying a small, tabletop unit, but I was unsure how much use it’d see. I was afraid it might become one of those things you play with for a bit, then collect dust. Once again, I see a solution in the form of Lego.
I personally prefer the design and building stage, and my son enjoyed that too, but he REALLY enjoys playing with it and now insists we play a couple matches every night.
Seems he’s not exxaggerating about that urge to solve problems with plastic bricks. See exhibit A: When a new synth module didn’t quite fit rackmount specs, Lego made it all better –
Yaknow, that actually makes for a pretty nice aesthetic!
