The Portable Cardboard Foosball Table

Why don't you have a foosball table? Because it takes up too much room; everyone knows this. But if you could somehow tell your 10-year-old self today that you could afford a foosball table but don't have one because of space constraints, you would probably be fighting off a crazed 10-year-old drunk on fury. Fortunately, there's a foosball table that makes everybody happy: the Flat Pack Cardboard Foosball Table.

Built from cardboard, this table actually manages to be sturdy and regulation-sized. Through various strokes of genius, the design allows you to build it without glue, screws, or tools, making it easy to collapse when your personal World Cup is over.

The table is mostly blank, giving you the freedom to decorate it to your own exacting specifications, or sell advertising to the local businesses—if you're into the whole entrepreneurial thing. Interestingly, the table comes with a small, passive iPhone speaker amplifier so you can play whatever K'Naan or Love Generation ridiculous World Cup anthem just a little bit louder. Oh and yes, those are beer holders, but be careful, because the table is cardboard.
