Venture Games – Custom, Premium, Quality Tables

Chris and Lizz McKayVenture Games is an American-made, second-generation, family-owned company with its roots dating back to 1928; currently captained by the husband and wife team of Chris and Lizz McKay.

Venture began in 1997 with the clear and unwavering aim of creating a superior shuffleboard table and accessories. Chris’ father, Russell was determined to manufacture the highest quality American-made shuffleboard table, created from the hands of skilled craftsman. He not only succeeded but flourished.

However; in 2011, tragedy struck Venture and the McKay family.  Patriarch, Russell McKay, died suddenly from a heart attack. In that devastating time, it became clear to Chris, that he had to carry on his father’s legacy. With the full support of his wife, Lizz, Venture Games’ operations moved to Peachtree City, GA, where Chris and Lizz were resolute in their decision to continue Russell’s dream of offering high-quality, American Made game tables. Working tirelessly side by side for 18 months, they skillfully transformed Venture Games into the forerunner in the gaming industry for thoughtfully designed and perfectly proportioned shuffleboards and game tables.

Everything about Venture starts with family. After Russell’s death, Chris rebranded Venture with the current logo. As a phoenix rises from the ashes, so did Venture Games. Chris’ rough sketch of a shield with wings representing the strength and resilience of his family and company now adorns tables all over the globe. It is a constant reminder of Venture’s dedication to excellence in all areas.   

In February of 2018, Venture moved from their small facility to a sprawling 16,600 square foot manufacturing facility just 3 miles from home in Tyrone, GA. The expansion was key for Venture to continue to grow and expand its line of game tables while maintaining competitive lead times. The Venture team now enjoys their own workspaces, a studio, and courtyard that allows max productivity, photography of all tables, and a space to hang out when the workday is done.

Venture Games continues to be the industry leader in creating the highest quality, American made game tables with the most unique designs. Venture has expanded its table line to include ping pong, foosball tables, and custom billiards.

In a country that relies more and more on foreign labor to increase profits and cut costs; Venture was, is and always will be American owned and operated. As an American company, we see it as our responsibility to demonstrate exactly what that means, with unmatched quality and expertise. We are confident that you will recognize every inch of sound and reliable American craftsmanship. Our goal is to continue to push the industry forward with innovative designs and a business model focused on people ahead of profits.

The continued success and reputation of Venture Games could only be attained through the hard and richly woven combination of family work ethic and domestic manufacturing. Our belief is that people who work with what they love are more likely to do right by the job and their customer. Venture Games will continue to work with the best-sourced materials, the most dedicated employees, craftsman, and the utmost care to bring you the highest quality, American-made game tables in the industry.

We are Venture Games.
