Furniture for Boardgamers: Tables – Part II

And now the time has come for us to take a look at some gaming tables whose primary function is to have games played on them.

As I mentioned in the Facebook discussion that launched these posts, Geek Chic (purveyors of handmade gaming tables) has gone out of business as of a few months ago. With gaming tables being a bit of a niche market, they haven’t left behind many competitors, but I’ve found a few.

1. Board Game Tables

Board Game Tables has six different gaming tables to offer that range in size from 2″ x 3.5′ up to 4′ x 6′. The table pictured above appears to be their flagship style of table and is very traditional in terms of design.

2. Carolina Game Tables

Carolina Game Tables has five gaming tables to offer. Three of which are traditional designs and include a coffee, kitchen, and dining table. The dining table is pictured above and measures 4′ x 6′ and features a removable top.

3. Geeknson

Geeknson has six gaming tables in its catalog as well as a bench and a chair. Four of the tables are dining room style tables and the other two are coffee tables. Above you’ll see the Denis Gaming and Dining Table. Be warned, this company is based in the UK so prices are going to be higher than the other companies after conversion into USD.

4. Rothskellers

Rothskellers has four gaming tables to offer. They come in a variety of sizes and styles. The table that you see above is the Councilor dining room style table and measures 4′ x6′ and offers a number of customization options.

And there you have it. These are the bigger gaming table manufacturers that I could find. Occasionally, you’ll see a table show up on Kickstarter, but those are typically designed with portability in mind and may not be all that great in the long run.

Part three of my posts on tables will be about hacking Ikea tables into gaming tables and will conclude my posts on tables.
