It is a game that is familiar and unique all at the same time.
“It is footpool, so it is soccer and pool put together,” said Ashleigh Brock, the co-owner of the newly opened Gamer’s Gallery in Hamtramck.
It is the only business in the area offering the game. Brock says she had actually never played it until she had a footpool field or table built for the business.
“It is a huge sport in Singapore,” said Brock. “I am a super Googler. So when I saw it on the website I was like, oh wouldn’t it be super cool to do it here.”
The Gamer’s Gallery offers not only foot pool, but numerous other opportunities for fun such as a karaoke room, Giant Jenga, darts, foosball, Connect Four, and crate basketball. If you come to the business, you can enjoy all the games for one price.
“For the month of December it is going to be a flat rate of $15. Play as much as you like,” said Brock.
The closest other place the owners of the Gamer’s Gallery know about where you can play Footpool is in Arizona.
If you want to check out Gamer’s Gallery, it is located at 3901 Christopher Street. It is open Tuesday through Thursday from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m., Friday from 5 p.m. until midnight, Saturday from noon until midnight, and Sunday from noon until 10 p.m.
