When I was growing up, my Dad bought us a second hand pool table and put it at the basement. My three older brothers used to shoot pools with their friends down there and sometimes cause a loud noise.
One time, my Dad was taking a nap and told them to keep quiet but I guess they were so into their games that they forgot my Dad's warning and one boy accidentally poke one of their pool sticks at the ceiling and woke my father up. He got mad and said that he will get rid of the pool table the next day and he did.
But anyhow, when my kids grow up, I may get us a pool table and put it at the family room where the four of us can shoot especially during winter times. It would be a good form of recreation on freezing days. And if the kids wants to invite their friends, they would have something to do for entertainment.
