Cabinet Game Table: Transforms from Cabinet to Table to Game Table!
More Than Meets the Eye!
The new Cabinet Game Table design allows for new options and yes, it transforms! (You add the sound effects) Last time we discussed how the table can attach to the front of the Cabinet with dual legs and a stretcher for maximum support.
We also mentioned that when not in use the table stores within the cabinet. Here’s how: the table is made up of two leaves which connect down the middle. When separated, one of the legs and half of the stretcher (which also connects in the middle) attach on one edge of a leaf to become carved trim. Each leaf then fits in a slot on the sides of the upper Cabinet with the carved trim facing out. The leaves are locked in place with a discrete bolt.
In short, the end result is simply a beautiful cabinet when the table is stored away.
Game Table in Disguise!
We thought that was pretty cool (and hope you agree), but then we realized the new design also afforded us a unique opportunity. Only one side of the table leaf is visible when stored in the Cabinet. We adjusted the design so the top is reversible to use either side!
Meaning…one side of the table is a gaming surface with a one-inch lip and fabric inlay.
That’s right, the new Cabinet Game Table is a game cabinet that transforms into a table and a game table!
Next week we’ll post more information about the Kickstarter, reward levels, etc. before the campaign begins on November 9th.
Please share with your friends so we can make this awesome Cabinet Game Table a reality!
PAX Unplugged Plans
Carolina Game Tables has a booth at PAX Unplugged!
Plan to stop by Booth 349 to see our Coffee Game Table ($899), Kitchen Game Table ($1199), and Dining Game Table ($1599, or $1749 with 6 cup holders). We’ll be on hand to talk about the new Cabinet design, but the sample for the new design is still in production–one reason we’re still showing off renders. The Streamer Game Table ($1999, or $2149 with 6 cup holders) will also be at PAX Unplugged in the Game Trade (Magazine) Media booth, Booth 203. Tablezilla? At 8 feet long and almost 5 feet wide, it’s just too big to transport easily to conventions. The price on Tablezilla is $2199, or $2399 with 8 cup holders added.
Don’t forget, we’re offering gold cup holders right now! Just make a note on your order. If you order a Game Table from our website and a Cabinet through the Kickstarter, they can ship together to save on your delivery costs!
Cabinet Game Table Preview: Table in Place! Also, Gold Cup Holders Continue!
Feedback from convention attendees at Gen Con and DragonCon on the Cabinet Game Table was pretty clear: make it easy to get to the shelves without the table in the way! Well, that’s easy. We redesigned the table so you can remove it when you don’t need it and put it back on when you do!
The Cabinet Game Table…Has a Table!
Our earlier design had the table fold down from the front like a Murphy bed. That was fast and easy, but with the table in place the customer had to reach over it to reach the upper Cabinet shelves.
Now the new Cabinet Game Table design lets you put the table in place when you want it, and store it within the Cabinet when you don’t. We’ll talk more later about where the table goes when you’re not using it, but check out the rendered image of the Cabinet Game Table with the table in place:
We think this is a great solution for extra table space when you need it most, and don’t want to set up a flimsy folding table.
The table top attaches to the Cabinet firmly and now has two legs and a connecting stretcher for greater stability. The smooth wooden table showcases our beautiful mahogany grain and is suitable for intimate dining, crafting, or (our favorite past-time) gaming!
The table surface measures 32.5″ wide and 44″ deep.
Gold Cup Holder Promotion Continues!
Don’t forget our popular Dining Game Table, Tablezilla, and Streamer Game Table have the option of gold cup holders during these weeks leading up to the Kickstarter!
Simply mention the gold cup holders in the Comments field of your order. If you forget, just email [email protected] or [email protected] and we’ll try to swap out gold for the standard black cup holders on your order.
The Coffee Game Table and Kitchen Game Table do not have room for cup holders, but they make an excellent addition to your home with the Cabinet Game Table!
Our Cabinet Game Table Kickstarter runs November 7th-27th, with orders expected to deliver in May 2018. Order your game table now and save on shipping both!

Save the Date: Cabinet Game Table Kickstarter Launches November 9th!
The new Cabinet Game Table design is nearly finalized and we’ve set a date for the Kickstarter!
Save the Date!
The Kickstarter for the Cabinet Game Table will run from November 9th through the 27th.
Since it would end on the Thanksgiving holiday we decided to extend longer than the original two weeks, and finish on Cyber-Monday for folks who might wait till the last minute. If you want to check out our last Kickstarter (the one we used to launch this business) go here.
New Cabinet Game Table Design
So, how about that new design? I don’t want to give too much away yet, but we have a render of what the newly designed cabinet will look like below.
The first thing you may notice is there is no door on the front (the part that originally lowered to become the table). That means when the table isn’t in use, it’s easy to access and display everything on the cabinet shelves and open the drawers.
We’ll provide more information on the table and other aspects of the new design in later updates, but for now, let us leave you with one super-cool feature we love and think you will too. The table will be reversible! It will have a flat wood top on one side (like originally designed, great for a small crafts area or dining) AND a gaming side on the other with a one-inch lip and fabric-lined play area interior. So your dice won’t fall off the table!
Yep, it’s not just a cabinet and one type of table, it has two options like our other game tables. “Game Tables for Real Life” to us means it’s great for everyday dining and use as well as for gaming. Our new cabinet design will embrace the same multi-functionality.
We should have renders showing the two variations in our next update, so keep a look out for it and thanks for all your support!
