You can join up to six of your friends and enjoy games such as the pool simulation including 8 Ball, 9 Ball, and Killer. Throw a few rounds of darts, air hockey or simply throw stuff around. If you have no friends­čś×, then there are AI partners to play with you.


SportsBar VR is one of the best social VR settings I have seen yet. Way more fun than the Facebook social VR experience. The developers even place the VR Headset inside the mouth of your character! Awesome!
