If you are a lover of tabletop games, chances are you’ve gone to, or hosted, a game night. They can be so much fun! Everyone gathered around a table with snacks, drinks, dice, games, and friendship. But with lots of people gathered around those D&D tables comes a very challenging problem: space. And to a lesser extent, organization.
This is especially relevant with Dungeons and Dragon, where everyone has all their dice, character sheets, notebooks and other D&D accessories. Not to mention the best game nights have got to have some sort of delicious snack. With all those people and all those things, it can be hard to get everyone to fit comfortably without getting too much in each others way.
Enter the gaming table. Gaming tables are designed to give everyone the space they need, while still allowing room for battle maps, minis, and whatever else the DM might need. There are a lot of truly beautiful tables out there that range in price and complexity. Some of these are even designed so that it can be used as a regular desk or dinning table throughout the week when you aren’t playing D&D.
Some of these tables are delivered straight to your door, while others are much more hands on. No matter your budget or your skill level at assembling furniture, there is a table on this list for you.
