Last weekend we went to PAX with a group of friends. For nearly a year now it has been among my husbands fondest wishes (not counting the menage a trois with Willow from Buffy) to own a gaming table made by Geek Chic.
And we totally ordered one.
They take nine months to arrive. But we are super excited. They make three tables: the Emissary, the Spartan and the Sultan. Oh, man, the Sultan is niiice. But a little out of our price range. The Emissary transforms astonishingly into a lovely dining table. However, the Spartan is the best for gaming when you don't want to take out a second mortgage to buy a table.
It has the ability to flip the leaves from craft surface to card table velvet, and pretty shoji screen patterns on the side if you like:
Which slide out and reveal shelves and drawers:
Wait, what was that one the side? A cupholder?
Let's take a closer look:
Under the leaves there is a dropped surface deep enough to hold miniatures under the leaves, which can be bamboo:
Or you can put a map under a dry erase surface:
I think it was worth it. There's very little else out there like it, and it was even nicer than in the picture.
Of course I had to endure the description of the salesman's 17th level Ranger in the process of buying it. Sigh.
