Games needed to attract renters!

I am getting an AirBNB ready, and it needs something to set it apart. It is a simple three bedroom house. I am hoping to put in a foosball table and maybe a ping pong table. Are there any vintage video games that could/should be added? I was thinking about one of those controllers that has the games within the controller or a reproduced vintage gaming system. Any suggestions?

Mario Party. Any version will do. Ruin relationships.

Seriously though, it depends on what kind of crowd you want to attract and what kind of attractions your city has. Like are you expecting to get adults who'd want a room to themselves, a family, or a bunch of college kids going 2+ to a room?

I like playing one night werewolf, a card game variant of gangsters vs villagers, when there's 6+ people. I like Metal Slug as a vintage 2 player game.

I’ve always been a fan of the octagon 3 in 1 bumper pool/poker tables. We had one in our rental cabin when I was a kid. It can be used as just a regular table as well

Take a look at the Jackbox games. In reality you only need a console, one controller and wifi to run the game, everything else is done through smartphones/tablets. Great series of party games.

Thanks guys! I was also thinking of one of those atari hand held joysticks with the games preloaded into the joystick.

I may take the bumper poor recommendation if it can also be a table. I have just never understood how to play bumper pool.

Slight aside from games but the only time I stayed in an airbnb the one thing we used a lot when we weren't out on the town was Netflix (I believe it was on their PS3).

Giant Jenga is the right price and right type of idea! I may not do any video games. I think parents may gravitate towards more real life games like foosball and giant jenga.

Coin-op arcade machine. Give them something to do and make a few more bucks in the process.
