The latest in a string of newfangled gaming venues coming to metro Detroit, the Gamer's Gallery will open above Fowling Warehouse next week.
The crown jewel of the venue will be a "foot pool" court. Never heard of foot pool? You're not alone. The new sport is a hybrid of soccer and pool, and you play it with your feet. Players kick color-coded soccer balls around a 12-foot-by-8-foot area that resembles a traditional pool table, and billiards rules apply.

So, basically it's like playing pool, but instead of billiard balls, you use soccer balls, and instead of a pool stick, you use your feet.

Here's a video to give you an idea: The 6,500 square foot Gamer's Gallery will also have karaoke, video games like NBA 2K and Madden NFL, and darts.

The venue will also have Michigan-made snacks and drinks from brands like Faygo and Better Made Potato Chips.

The Gamer's Gallery will open on Dec. 9 at 6 p.m. and will remain open until Midnight. The Fowling Warehouse and Gamer's Gallery are located at 3901 Christopher St., Hamtramck.
