What’s Happening at PAX South 2017?

We can’t waPAX South 2017 mapit to see our Texas friends in San Antonio for PAX South January 27-29, 2017! We are in Booth 10055.

Find Carolina Game Tables in the Exhibit Hall

If you enter from the Queue Hall, follow the right hand wall through the labyrinth of booths until you find us.

If you enter from the PC  Room or Tabletop hall, look for the left hand wall and follow along it. Either way, we’re easy to find at PAX South!

What Else Can I See at PAX South?

Oh, a LOT.

Video games take center stage at any PAX convention, and PAX South has plenty. You’ll get to play games before they’re released, talk to game developers, and hang out with game enthusiasts like yourself. Some people like to cosplay as their favorite video game character, the more obscure the better! But you won’t feel out of place in a T-shirt and jeans.

Tabletop is bigger at PAX South than any of the other PAX conventions. So if board games, card games, or tabletop roleplaying games (like our own award-winning Savage Worlds) are your thing, this is the show to see! We’ll have Savage Worlds core rules available for sale in the Carolina Game Tables booth (10055) and Clint and I love to talk about our game developer experiences—and our furniture experience! There should be demo games of Savage Worlds in the Tabletop hall often throughout the convention.

Panels on everything from web comics, breaking into the industry, and Game Master advice pepper the schedule like sprinkles on a cupcake. Mmm…cupcakes.

Penny Arcade drives the organization that brings you the PAX conventions, so if you’re a Penny Arcade fan you just don’t want to miss it! One of the things they’ve become known for is their Dungeons & Dragons group, Acquisitions Incorporated. We’re proud to be a sponsor of Acquisitions, Incorporated: The Series and you can see one of our tables in their videos! They have a mega Acquisitions Incorporated live play event at PAX South from 2–5pm Saturday. Add it to your schedule!

The evenings offer the option to keep gaming or participate in live music shows from SuperMES, Urizen, and Descendants of Erdrick on Friday,  and the OneUps, Viking Guitar, and Bit Brigade on Saturday!

The complete schedule is here, and shows they pack a lot of diversity into one convention. If you come to PAX South, be sure to stop by the Carolina Game Tables Booth (10055) and say howdy. 🙂


New Fabric Color: Purple!


Streamer Game Table built for Game the Game! Cherry finish and Purple fabric. Note the trapezoidal shape? That’s so a single camera can get up to 8 players in one shot!

If you watch Game the Game on Geek and Sundry, you’ve already seen our new Purple fabric color option on the Streamer Game Table!

Game the Game is the self proclaimed “Sister Show” of TableTop by Wil Wheaton, where Ivan Van Norman and co-host Becca Scott play board games with friends Live on Twitch. Each week, Ivan and Becca play a new game (now on the Streamer!) for you to see. He started with the Harry Potter™ Hogwarts™ Battle cooperative card game from USAopoly. It looks like a very fun game. We’re suckers for anything cooperative, and you can play each year of Harry’s academic career.

Ivan is a friend of ours and contributed a Jenga-like recipe for our Kickstarter stretch goal Dinner and Dice, a Gaming Cookbook. Here’s his unboxing video of the Streamer on Periscope: https://www.periscope.tv/w/1lDGLmeYZeqJm

We think this is a fun show, and if you like board games, you don’t want to miss it. Ivan and Becca make for a great show. And the set piece is totally cool. 😉

Where Can We Get the Purple?

The new Purple fabric color isn’t just available for the Streamer, though. You can get it on any one of our five table designs including Coffee, Kitchen, Dining, and Tablezilla!

We’ve updated our “Spec Sheet,” an 8.5″ x 11″ page you can view or print, giving you all the details and options for our tables. This includes prices on the tables, their dimensions, whether there are cup holder options, and all finishes and fabrics. Carolina Game Tables also offers matching chairs and side tables/benches. As always, the finish and fabric options do not affect the price. All tables come with a table top. No upcharge! Download the Spec Sheet by clicking here.

Purple Swatch Preview

Here are some swatches to peruse, showing the Purple fabric with each of our four finish colors. We have other photos on the Streamer Game Table page, but please remember the lighting changes the fabric color significantly.

Come see the new Purple fabric swatches at PAX South in San Antonio, TX, Jan. 27-29!
