We hope all of you are experiencing a joyous holiday season, full of hope for the future and surrounded by family and friends. We’re looking forward to seeing many of our friends at PAX Unplugged!

If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected]

Please help us tell anyone who is considering a game table purchase about the increases in our prices. We’ve resisted increasing our table prices over the past four years, but labor, transportation, and material prices continue to rise. And we’d feel badly if someone had the opportunity to order but didn’t know about the increasing prices.

PAX Unplugged 2020

If you’ll be in Philadelphia, PA, December 6–8, 2019, for PAX Unplugged stop by Booth 3207 to see a variety of our game tables, or stop by the TinkerTurf display in the Miniatures area to check out two more of our game tables!

Buy the 5×5 Game Table Now! and Important Company Announcements

The 5×5 Game Table is now available for public orders! Go here to place an order now: https://www.carolinagametables.com/product/5×5-game-table/

We know a few people could not pledge for the 5×5 Game Table because of Kickstarter’s “all or nothing” funding strategy. It certainly makes sense to wait a little longer and place an order when you can choose from our payment options!

Here are the payment options we offer:

Pay in full using PayPal Credit. Honestly? This is the best option for most people! Click on the PayPal Credit button to see what terms PayPal offers your family. Some people get 12 months with 0% financing! We get paid in full up front, and your table begins immediately.

Pay in full using our checkout system. If you have a coupon code to apply, you may want to choose this option. You may also pay directly on our site using a credit card this way. You are not required to have a PayPal account (PayPal does process your payment for us).

Deposit Now, with Two Payments: Pay half now, and half at four months. This also allows you to apply a coupon code and pay without a PayPal account. Don’t worry, your table begins immediately. The downside to this option is you may be invoiced for delivery close to the same time as the second payment.

Deposit Now, with Six Payments: Pay for your Game Table in six easy payments. A processing fee equal to 10% of total order price is added to the first two payments. The final payment is solely the shipping charge. You can make these payments using your credit card directly on our site, and do not have to log into PayPal.

Important Company Announcements

Our company strives for a high quality product to not only last for a very long time but look great. That’s what “Game Tables for Real Life” means to us: one table you can use as a beautiful sturdy dining room table AND for game night!

We’ve been in business now for over 4 years, and made changes to our designs before in keeping with that plan. Now we’re making a few more tweaks to our design with the goals of continued high quality and longevity of use. We’ll also be raising prices beginning in 2020 to match increases in materials and construction costs. But first, let’s talk about the design changes.

New Seams on Table Play Areas

On some table’s play areas (sometimes years later), tiny cracks appeared in the lacquer where the planks meet. On review, this was found to be due to the natural expanding and contracting of the wood used in construction. It occurred most often in homes with extreme humidity levels (or lack of it).

The new seams are at the head and foot of our rectangle table designs. Go to each product to see updated images of the new table seams for each design. While it may not impact most customers, these will help prevent cracking from happening in the future for those in more humid or dry conditions. Please note if you see cracking, it’s likely not a structural issue–it’s in the finish, not the wood! If you’re unsure, email us a pic at [email protected]

A quick word about the construction between those planks: a tongue-and-groove joint connects them, and the factory uses a high frequency clamping machine to further tighten the bond. The issue is not with the construction, but in how the lacquer doesn’t move when the wood does. These cracks weren’t undermining those tables’ stability, but they were unsightly. There’s nothing we can do about wood reacting to heat and humidity in our customer’s homes, so we needed to make a change in our design to keep the table looking great for longer.

To prevent this issue we are placing a 2mm seam where the planks meet to allow the joints to move slightly and “breathe.” See our sample Dining Game Table, above.

New Shinier Finish

New shinier finishes! From top to bottom; Elm, Sagamore Hill, French Couture, and Cherry.

Another way to keep the lacquer from cracking and chipping is to simply apply it a tad thicker. This results in a shinier look, but the color of the finish underneath is the same. Please understand no amount of lacquer will keep the table from chipping indefinitely; strikes against the table surface will chip the table lacquer. This protects the table’s wood from damage: the lacquer usually chips, but often not the wood underneath. If needed, the wood can be refinished because of this protection.

We will keep our Streamer Game Tables with a matte (not shiny) finish, even though it will mean they are more likely to chip. Reflective surfaces are hard to film with.

If you want a more matte finish, just request this option in your ordering notes, but you accept that the table will be more likely to chip and scratch.

More MDF in Our Dining Tops

New orders will have our dining tops with no mahogany wood edges. The MDF edges are stronger and bind better to the MDF used to sandwich the honeycomb interior. This will also help keep weight and costs down, and will further strengthen the dining top. You won’t see any change on the outside of the dining top.

Increasing Prices in 2020

Finally, we’ve resisted increasing our table prices over the past four years, but labor, transportation, and material prices continue to rise. As such, beginning on January 1, 2020 we will increase the base prices for most of our game table designs.

New game table base prices, effective January 1, 2020:

Coffee Game Table: $999

Costa Rica on a Kitchen Game Table at coffee height—and a pupper whose tail won’t sweep the pieces to the floor!

Kitchen Game Table: $1399 (subtract $100 for the Kitchen Game Table at coffee height)

Dining Game Table: $1799

5×5 Game Table: $1799 (subtract $100 for the 5×5 Game Table at coffee height). This price is not increasing!

Banquet Game Table: $2199

Streamer Game Table: $2299

Tablezilla Game Table: $2399

We will not increase the prices on our cup holders, height options, chairs, or side tables/benches. We will need to increase prices on our replacement dining tops, however.

New replacement dining top prices, effective January 1, 2020, are below:

Coffee Game Table replacement top: $250

Kitchen Game Table replacement top: $275

Dining Game Table replacement top: $400

5×5 Game Table replacement top: $400

Banquet Game Table replacement top: $600

Streamer Game Table replacement top: $650

Tablezilla Game Table replacement top: $750

Kickstarter for 5×5 Game Table Launches Tuesday!

5×5 Game Table Kickstarter to Run Aug 27—Sept. 23

If you’ve been as excited about our newest game table design as we are, we hope you’ll mark next Tuesday at noon Eastern (August 27th) on your calendar, and join us for the kickoff on Kickstarter!

Features of the “5×5”

This newest design is called the “5×5” or “Five by Five,” because the overall dimensions are five feet square. When the dining top is in place, one seam at the 2.5 foot mark divides the table, like a normal table leaf. 

The 5×5 as a dining table is strong enough to stand up to everyday use for eating, homework, craft projects, and everything else a normal family uses the central household table for!

 

The 5×5 seats 8 easily. Like all our game table designs, a top is included in the price.

When you’re ready to play a game, simply remove the dining top pieces to reveal a 38″ x 38″ square play area. Cup holders are an Add On option, and may be purchased as a set of four (one at each corner of the table), or a set of eight as shown.

The 5×5 is perfect for roleplaying games like The Goon™ RPG from Pinnacle Entertainment Group. This uses the award-winning Savage Worlds game system and is based on Eric Powell’s award-winning comic!

Wide edges like our eleven inch (11″) sides on the 5×5 are a signature look for Carolina Game Tables! These provide plenty of space for:

  • RPG character sheets
  • Board game components
  • Laptops
  • Full size books and rulebooks
  • Game boxes
  • Snacks
  • Drinks and our inset cup holders

We’ve fallen in love with this new design, and the feedback from attendees at Gen Con who saw it was overwhelmingly positive. This may become our new bestseller!

Why Kickstarter?

Marketing impact, bulk ordering, and being able to offer a price reduction for the first round of orders.

We’ve launched five game table designs since the Dining Game Table Kickstarter in 2015, and we tested the Cabinet Game Table design using Kickstarter in 2017. We still have customers who tell us they first heard of us from those Kickstarters.

Each project has long-reaching marketing impact. We never dream of being the next million dollar Kickstarter (we know that comes with as much risk as reward). Simply having a project—funded or not—keeps our designs in the public eye and at the top of search engine results.

We can also gather a large number of table orders for the same design this way, and pass the savings along to our backers/customers by offering a price lower than we will be able to offer for single-orders later. The base price for the 5×5 Game Table will be $1799 once it is listed for sale on our website. It will be $1699 on Kickstarter, or $2449 for a 5×5 Game Table and a Coffee Game Table set!

5×5 Not Your Thing? Then Check These Out!

We won’t be closing the shop while the Kickstarter runs, so you can still order our existing designs at www.carolinagametables.com.

Tablezilla $2199—$2599

New Designs and Fabric Color at Gen Con 2019!

New in August: coffee height Kitchen Game Table!
Introducing in August: Grey! This is the same high quality and durable velveteen we use on all our tables.

We’re all over Gen Con 2019—and if you’re staying at home, you can even see our Streamer all Gen Con long on their Twitch channel! We have a new fabric color starting in August (Grey) and a new coffee height option on the Kitchen Game Table. We also preview our next design—the “5×5″—and collect feedback from attendees. We’ll have a prototype of the “5×5” at Gen Con in our Exhibit Hall Booth 1953 (see details below).

Kitchen Game Table at coffee height $1099, includes table top.

Here’s a list of all the places our game tables will be and the events we’re attending.

Gen Con Exhibit Booth 1953

This was the Exhibit Hall booth last year. Look for our logo!

This is “home base” for us all weekend! Come see the new “5×5” prototype and our popular $899 Coffee Game Table. Jodi Black will stay near this booth.

Tabletop Showroom

When you’re walking from the Exhibit Hall to events in Lucas Oil Field Stadium, you can’t miss the Tabletop Showroom! Other game furniture manufacturers will be set up with us so you can examine a variety of styles and options in one place.

Our $1999 Banquet Game Table and the new $1099 Kitchen Game Table at coffee height will be on display here. Having the $1199 Kitchen Game Table available at coffee height is a new option for us! Clint Black will stay near this booth.

Lone Shark Games (Gen Con Exhibit Hall Booth 2833)

Our friends at Lone Shark host our counter height $1299 Kitchen Game Table in their booth! We will also use this table for The Stink. While that name sounds awful, it’s actually great. Read below.

Streamer on the Gen Con Twitch Channel

This is actually our Streamer Game Table on the Fantasy Flight Games Twitch channel. Watch them play here: https://www.twitch.tv/ffglive

If you’re part of the #GenCant movement and staying home, you can watch lots of new games played and previewed on our $1999 Streamer Game Table here: https://www.twitch.tv/genconstudio .

Gen Con Event: The Stink! Wednesday 5-8pm Union Station Grand Hall

If you can be at Gen Con early and want to play some games and pick up some cool swag and prizes, plan to join us at The Stink! Tickets are free and guarantee swag. You can also just show up without a ticket, but please register so Gen Con gives them the space next year. Here’s the Gen Con event link.

Savage Worlds is a Fast! Furious! Fun! tabletop roleplaying game that suits any genre and most ages.

We’ll have the counter height Kitchen Game Table set up here and plan to run fast demo games of the new Savage Worlds core rules. Donations from Pinnacle and Carolina Game Tables will both be available at this event!

Clint and Jodi Black work closely with Pinnacle Entertainment Group (Jodi is COO of PEG and President of CGT; Clint is Core Rules Guru of PEG and VP for CGT). So Savage Worlds ADventure Edition core rules—or #SWADE as it’s called by fans—is something they’re very proud of.

What Do You Think of the “5×5?”

We’ll have the prototype of this newest design in our Exhibit Hall Booth at Gen Con (Booth 1953), and we’d love to meet you and hear what you think about it!

Come see the new “5 x 5” prototype design at Booth 1953 at Gen Con 2019!

The “5×5” is five feet square with a 38′ square play area; same as the Kitchen Game Table, but with 11 inch edges. This design allows for four or eight cup holders, and may be built at coffee, dining, counter, or bar height. The prototype is at dining height. The dining top is a two piece design.

We look forward to seeing your reaction to the “5×5” prototype and anticipate hearing lots of feedback. We will have a suggestion box to accept new design ideas, since there’s no way we can keep track of them all!

Thank you for helping us spread the word about our classically styled and generously proportioned game tables. We are a family business and appreciate your support. We’re going to have so much fun at Gen Con, and hope to see you there!


Ho Ho Ho! May the Fourth Be With You!

We hope you’re having a great start to the warmer Spring months! We have a great deal for anyone who is looking for a Spring sale (or want their table by Christmas!) on our beautiful and sturdy game tables—the coupons from PAX East end May 12th!

Wait…CHRISTMAS? Yes. Because White Glove Delivery can take 4–9 weeks depending on your location, we recommend you place your order by May 31st for Christmas delivery. If you live on the West Coast, you really need to plan for your order to be placed by May 15th. We’ll certainly try to get your order to you after that point (our production time still averages 4 months), but our experience shows this is the most effective way to do it.

Here at Carolina Game Tables we celebrated International Tabletop Day, made summer convention plans, and we have a couple “As Is” tables for immediate sale in our Hickory, NC, showroom (now with White Glove Delivery available!).

But more on that later—here’s the ad previously printed in the PAX East program guide, complete with coupon codes!

Make Plans to Join us at ConCarolinas, Gen Con, and DragonCon This Summer!

Our first convention of the summer is in Charlotte, NC, at ConCarolinas May 31-June 2nd. This is a growing convention local to us, and we will be in attendance Friday and Saturday, returning Sunday evening to pack up (we have a church commitment that morning). Of all our summer conventions this is the ONLY show we are running Savage Worlds demos and games as well as having the Carolina Game Tables booth. We know a lot of our customers are interested in our award-winning tabletop roleplaying game, so we wanted to let you know this is the best convention to be able to play with us!

We will not be at Origins in Columbus, OH, this year due to a family conflict—our daughter graduates from high school that weekend! We’ll return in 2020.

Gen Con in Indianapolis, IN, August 1-4th, will be a big event for us, though, with a booth on the Exhibit Floor and a special showcase in the corridor leading to Lucas Oil Stadium. Yes, Gen Con is so huge they have tabletop events on the field!

Our last convention of the summer will be DragonCon in Atlanta, GA, Aug. 29–Sept. 2nd. We have not heard about our booth placement yet, but we’ll likely have another update before then.

Pics from Our 2019 International Tabletop Day Celebration!

We heard GeeknSundry changed the date from the last Saturday in April to the first in June, but seeing as how we’ll be at ConCarolinas, we kept the April date and will continue to keep it. Sorry, GeeknSundry! April was also when we opened our showroom in 2016, so it’s an anniversary celebration for us as well. Other than this event and one in the Fall (TBD), our showroom hours are by appointment only.

Mark your calendar now for next year to join us: April 25, 2020!

For our International Tabletop Day celebration we’ll have board games and quick roleplaying game demos at the ready—even a few puzzles and kids games—all on our gorgeous game tables.

We’ll especially have demos of Savage Worlds Adventure Edition to show off the new rules.

Savage Worlds Adventure Edition

We (Clint and Jodi Black, the owners of Carolina Game Tables) have been very involved in the making of this tabletop roleplaying game and can’t wait to show off how versatile and fun it is to play.

Since we made the announcement about our International Tabletop Day celebration, Geek and Sundry decided to shift the international observance of the day to June 1st! We’re keeping this date since we will be attending ConCarolinas that weekend.

We’ve also added demos of Charlotte game designer Alex McMeeken’s board game Photopathy. Be one of the first to try this gorgeous new game!

Off to a Great Start in 2019

This is a red letter year for our family. By August both our children will be in college! This should mean we can schedule more conventions in 2020 (and we’d love to hear about your favorite regional con!). However, this year we need to scale back. Depending on when college move-in dates shake out, we may even need to skip Gen Con or DragonCon. Let’s hope not! But our kids come first.

Meet Sarah, Customer Service Representative!

One way we were able to grow in 2018 was with the excellent help of Sarah. Every day, she helps us keep orders straight and everything running like clockwork when we’re on the road. When you email [email protected] the email goes to all three of us, but usually Sarah answers first! She also brings fierce photography skills to the showroom and usually photographs our tables for the spec sheet and other promotional pieces. We tend to use #RealCustomerPhotos in our social media–keep sending us those pics. y’all!

Plan a Visit to Our Showroom in 2019!

We hope you’ll consider a visit to our showroom in Hickory, NC. We simply cannot take all our table designs to every show! Tablezilla, we have learned, is too big to handle at a show. Please email us to arrange a day and time to stop by. We don’t keep regular hours.

We also have some pieces for sale in the showroom which cannot be shipped. Pick up only:

Tablezilla for sale: Sagamore Hill and Emerald Green (no cup holders, two piece top included, shown above). Originally $2199. For this table only: $1699!
