Trying to get your girlfriend to play foosball? This Barbie-themed foosball table might just do the trick.

2World's Largest Foosball Table
Here's the largest football-table game in the world. In fact, Table Football XXL is so huge, two entire soccer teams — 22 players — could face off with it, settling their challenges without ever setting foot on a real field. This monster was built by Amsterdam brewer Amstel, a stunt that coincided with the European Champions League Finals. If you wanted to buy this one, you'd need six flight cases just to ship it to you.
3Foosball Coffee Table
This is a coffee table with a built-in foosball game. Made from solid poplar, the table stands 20" high, allowing you to sit comfortably or kneel while grasping your team's three hand-carved, solid wood control rod handles.
4Hybrid Real and Second Life Virtual Foosball Table
It's a mixed-reality foosball, or table soccer game, which combines players from the virtual world Second Life with players from the real world. The game will feel quite different to a player, depending on which world she comes from: to virtual players, it's a life-size soccer stadium where they run around kicking the ball. To real-world players, it's a foosball table where the goal isn't to hit the ball: it's to create obstacles for the opposing team's avatars, and to knock those avatars out of the way.
5Lego Star Wars Foosball Table
Now how cool is that – a Lego Star Wars Foosball Table which sees all of the foosmen being replaced by Lego Star Wars mini-figs? The entire table is one fantasy piece of Lego land.
This new rig from 2eleven will no doubt attract its fair share of attention nonetheless and, unlike some of those other units, it's actually pre-built. While there doesn't seem to be a complete breakdown of all its intricacies, the table does come equipped with some LED score displays, a pair of LCD displays apparently intended to display advertisements, an automatic ball lift mechanism and, yes, cup holders.
7The Foosball Table of Kings
Commonly the foosball table is made up of wood and common metals much unlike ‘the Rolls Royce' of all foosball tables.

The metal in the table is stainless steel that can be gilded in different colors including the most popular color being gold. This luxurious toy is coveted by all foosball lovers.
8Chelpa Ferro's Foosball Table
Highly modified foosball tables are a dime a dozen, but this contraption could easily be mistaken for some sort of Martian gaming machine at first glance. Dreamed up and crafted by designer Chelpa Ferro, this Tota Treme Terra looks to be a vanilla foosball table with an artsy overhead light and a hodgepodge of speakers wrapped all around. Word on the street has it that the machine belts out sound effects based on the action up above, but sadly, the actual details about this potential ninth wonder of the world are being left to our imaginations.
