Carolina Gaming Tables Up On Kickstarter

Continuing with our theme of gaming tables for the morning, Carolina Gaming Tables is running a Kickstarter campaign for their… well… gaming tables (you don’t have to live in Carolina to be part of the Kickstarter). Let’s face it, if you entered the contest in the article below this one, chances are pretty slim that you’ll win. However, since this Kickstarter has funded, the chance of getting a table is greatly increased.

The table is one of the type that has a recessed gaming area built into it. That way, you can have a game set up and ready to play just about any time. Just remove the top and you’re good to go. A friend has a table like that. He keeps Mansions of Madness set up down there, since he loves to play the game, but let’s face it, it can take a while to set up. This Kickstarter campaign contains pledge levels if you just want some coasters, a side table or chairs, or the full dining room set.

The campaign has reached their funding goal and still has 29 days left on the clock.



    They made the opposite of what I want: a table with a smaller top for regular non-gaming use, that turns into a 4′ x 6′ table somehow for big games that need the space. The last thing I want to do is shrink the surface space for when it’s time to play a game.

      That is a small playing area…

        Depends on what you’re playing I guess, but the interior area has enough room for a 2.5 ft. x 4 ft. game with 1″ of clearance on all sides. And keep in mind, the rest of the table is not unplayable. In fact, the wider edges are designed to give each individual player room to keep their own game pieces (cards, dice, etc.) separate from the central shared play area. The shorter ends even have a deeper edge for gamemasters, bankers, or other players who have more to track. Anyway, just wanted to clarify on the design, we know it’s not for everyone. Thanks!

          As a tabletop miniatures gaming surface, it is very small.

          While some games are meant to be played on a 3′ by 3′ table, a lot of them require a 4′ by 4′ board, or even a 4′ by 6′ board.

          2.5′ by 4′ doesn’t meet that particular need.

          • There are a few skirmish games coming out that are played on spaces as small as 2’x2′. Bushido is the one that immediately comes to mind, but there’s a couple others.

            But yeah, for 99% of the minis games out there, 2.5’x4′ isn’t going to be big enough.

            Oh, absolutely. For most board games, rpgs, etc, the interior play area is perfect, but a full minis game would have to be played with the top on for the full 4′ x 6′ area.
