    I was surprised to see the word 'foosball' in another thread #3. I had never heard it before. It is not in the Wordreference dictionary.

    Definition of
    FOOSBALL
    : a table game resembling soccer in which the ball is moved by manipulating rods to which small figures of players are attached —called also table soccer
    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/foosball


    Note that in British English this game is called "Table Football" or occasionally "Table-top Football"

    NOTE TO MODERATORS
    There is no question here. I have included the terms because none of them appear to be in the WR dictionary.
