Gaming table badassery.

Posted By on December 18, 2009

So, we’re planning out the basement theater/den/rumpus room/cozy area, and we’ve got a lot of it figured out.

  • TV goes on this wall
  • That determines speaker and seating placement
  • We’d like to have the kegerator over there
  • Popcorn machine goes there.
  • That leaves this big empty space… what goes there?

Enter, GeekChic, and their Spartan gaming table. Bar height, perfect for the spot, just needs some stools with backs and we’re good.

Now, I should mention that they don’t yet have it on the website, but I heard about it in an interview on All Games Considered, so I emailed them. A very nice woman named Brenda sent me information on it (and her email is enabler@ – how cool is that?) including some pictures, which are included below. I am reposting with their permission.

The real nice thing about it, in addition to the under-table storage (I’ll likely go with proper doors. While I like Shoji screens, I don’t think they’re survive kitties), the recessed play surface can have terrain and bits on it, and then I can put in the leaves to cover it up and present a smooth surface. Kitty proof and out of sight. The main compelling feature for me is having a safe place to leave terrain set up.
