That is fair, it just means it doesn't fit into what I can use. I did find that Game Anywhere Tables, however, is modular to do what I wanted. Originally I didn't look at them because it looked like a folding table topper, but their new GAT-54 table makes it look like a standard gaming table. So it looks like I will be going that route instead.

Last stretch goal hit. Clear PVC table cover. A little too pricy for me at this point, unfortunately, unless I drop other add-ons. I'll have to think about it.

Edit: Nah, I'll just get something second hand from a thrift store can call it a day.

Final two hours (it closes at 8:00 AM PST on 9/28/17).

I've decided to forgo most of the accessories and stick to the 6' x 4' table with the cover/desk boards so I can also use it as a dining table in my kitchen.

Given that they're ready to start production once they receive the money, I don't expect that fulfillment dates will slip much.

I also like the fact that they've been polling backers early so they have an idea on what to expect so they can schedule things accordingly. I also like that they haven't been going around promising everyone the moon just to hit a stretch goal or to get a little more money from pre-orders.

It's interesting to see the wood workers in the comments asking about technical details of production, "Process Steps, Lead Time, Plant Rate, Value Added Time, Takt Time, etc."

The GW RoBG's will not fit into it as it's not a true 6x4 playing area. I assume game mats will also not fit.

So unfortunate; I absolutely would have backed this.

Hey oni, what did you wind up pledging for in the end?

Okay, the pledge manager is up at www.pledgemanager.com

The only upgrade I went with was an extra set of legs so I could use the table as a dining table (normal legs) or as a gaming table (long legs). I saved a little money by selecting long legs as the default and then ordering medium legs as the upgrade. Doing the reverse would have added around $30 or so to the bill.

Holy ghost.
1100bux for a table.
I just built a guest bed from clear pine, granted it is natty but I could add all the power plugs and dragon etchings I want if I wanted and hide under the thing during an earthquake - it is tough - about 1/10th of the cost.
For a dedicated gaming table, hmmm, that thing is pretty if one has 1100bux for a table.

If you look around, you'll find that most well built dining tables are similarly priced. I got the top covers so that I could also use this as a dining table. So, considering the dual use I'd say it's a pretty good deal as long as the final product lives up to the promises. Also, that price includes shipping which is expensive for a heavy table.

I don't know if anyone else on Dakka bought one of these but I just got a notice that they're locking down orders and getting things ready for delivery.

We wanted to let you know that we're locking down Table of Ultimate Gaming: The Ultimate Game Table orders for fulfillment soon and wanted to be sure we have the correct address for you. If your address is correct below, you're all set!

I expect they're still on track for early March fulfillment which is a nice thing given how many kickstarters I've supported that have had dates slip by years.
