Introducing the $1999 Banquet Game Table and our Disaster Relief Cup Holder Upgrade!
The Banquet Game Table is Larger than the Dining and Seats 8 Players!
It’s Smaller than Tablezilla and Sized for a Standard Dining Room!
The Banquet Game Table—a “Goldilocks” Design for $1999!
The Banquet Game Table is 7 feet long (84″) and 4 feet 2 inches wide (50″) overall. The interior play area is 62″ x 32″ (for 5 x 2.5 feet of space with 1″ of clearance all around). The Banquet Game Table’s edges are 11 inches deep for the head and foot (like Tablezilla and our Dining Game Table) for Game Masters, note takers, board game boxes or snack setups. The long sides are 9 inches deep for players.
Dining, Banquet, and Tablezilla lined up: a foot longer as you go up!
Like all of our tables, the Banquet Game Table comes with a removable dining top (its top comes in two pieces so they’re easier to store). It is available at dining, counter, or bar height, and with or without cup holders. Chairs and Side Tables/Benches are available, made from the same sturdy Indonesian mahogany and stained to match, at dining height only.
The new Banquet Game Table design should fit those who are looking to host more gamers in less space, all while keeping the high end aesthetic and quality construction Carolina Game Tables is known for.
Carolina Game Tables and owners Jodi and Clint Black call North Carolina home, a state hard hit by Hurricane Florence in September 2018. We weathered the storm just fine (we lost a tree, little damage) as did our factory and workers. Our hearts go out to our friends in the eastern part of the state affected by flooding. Our social media feeds are filled with images posted by friends. Real people we know and care about. Moved to help them and others around the world facing or rebuilding from similar disasters, we’ve decided to use the launch of the Banquet Game Table to support a charitable cause.
Purchase “Disaster Relief Cup Holder Upgrade” for $50 with your new table purchase in lieu of paying for the usual cup holder upgrade. We’ll cover the cost of the cup holders, and donate the $50 to Lutheran World Relief. This is a savings of $100–$150 for you, and helps others!
OR Purchase “Disaster Relief Cup Holder Upgrade” for $50 now and reserve a cup holder upgrade for a table order in 2019!
This offer only lasts until December 31, 2018…but you can use it on a table purchase through December 31, 2019. Moved to give more? Purchase the item as many times as you like! You can even gift a Disaster Relief Cup Holder Upgrade to a friend. For complete details, please see our product page here.
Why Are We Offering a Deal on Cup Holders When Launching the Banquet Game Table?
Because these are our people. The world is our people. We want others to feel empowered to act, too.
We are called to pray for others in adversity and to go beyond “thoughts and prayers” to be people of action. This is why we chose Lutheran World Relief as our charitable partner.
Lutheran World Relief assists with disaster response in the United States and abroad, both immediately and long term to build resilient communities. We’ve been involved with this organization through our church for decades and seen the good they’ve done. We appreciate that they serve people without regard to religious affiliation, which allows them to help in areas prohibited to other “evangelical” church groups. Read Lutheran World Relief’s FAQ here.

DragonCon 2018 Booth and Specials!
If you haven’t been to DragonCon in Atlanta, Georgia, you’re missing out on a fantastic mile long cosplay parade, panels about everything in fandom, the chance to meet celebrities and have your photo taken with them, and parties and dances where nerds can be geeky and fabulous!
It’s not the most gaming-centered convention, but it’s so big there’s plenty of games to rival any regional gaming con. There’s a big game library, plenty of campaign and non-campaign RPGs on the schedule, CCG prizes to win, LAN, LARP, and all sorts of other acronyms. Most gamers don’t even try the games at DragonCon, they come for the panels on gaming and other events. Leave room for serendipity, and more time than you think for shopping!
With four floors of vendors (including us!) to shop from, odds are great you’ll pick up a souvenir or some ubertastic statement piece—something you won’t find anywhere else!
Find Carolina Game Tables on the Third Floor, Third Row, Booth 3314
Exhibitors are in the AmericasMart Building 2. Most anyone in downtown Atlanta can point you to the correct building (it’s sort of behind the Westin).
Pro tip: take the escalator/elevator to the 4th floor and shop your way down. You may have to push against the tide flowing into the ground floor at first, but you’ll be a lot more relaxed, we promise. That first floor fills up fast!
The 4th floor is Comic and Pop Artist Alley, with two rooms for panels. You won’t want to miss seeing your favorite comic artists, or find a new one!
Then go to the 3rd floor, where we’re in the third row up front! Click on the below image to see it larger.
DragonCon 2018 Specials!
So many people were happy about our Gen Con specials that we decided to offer up more for the land of the Dragons!
To get these coupon codes you or a friend need to stop by the booth at DragonCon and take a bookmark.
(If you really can’t get the coupon any other way, email us at [email protected] and we’ll send them to you)
These specials are useful for any new order of a game table:
Coffee Game Table
Kitchen Game Table
Dining Game Table
Streamer Game Table
Tablezilla Game Table
Specials expire September 17th, so don’t wait too long!
Gen Con 2018 Special Offer and Other Gen Con and #GenCant Details
We’re heading to Gen Con 2018 next week and couldn’t be more thrilled!
Three years ago, we filmed our Kickstarter video on the floor of the Gen Con Exhibit Hall. Now we can announce Carolina Game Tables has partnered with Gen Con LLC to provide a Streamer Game Table for their streaming services this year AND we’re creating a Gen Con logo-topped Dining Game Table for their Seattle, WA, headquarters!
Gen Con 2018 Special Offer?
Noticed that, did you? 🙂 We’re offering a Gen Con 2018 Special to celebrate. From now through August 15th, 2018, any table order is eligible for a discount.
You can get $100 off any table or free cup holders on one of the larger tables (a $150-$200 value)! Just use the coupon codes below when placing your order. Only one code per order, so if you want more than one table just place separate orders at the same time. Remember, we invoice shipping later so we’ll combine your orders when they finish.

Gen Con 2018 Attendees: Find Us in Exhibit Hall Booth 2757
You’ll see more of Carolina Game Tables at the show, but you won’t find us in the Studio 2 Publishing booth where we’ve been for the past three years.
We have our own Booth #2757 in the Exhibit Hall, in Entrepreneurs’ Avenue. We’ll have a Dining Game Table, Coffee Game Table at coffee table height, and a Coffee Game Table at dining height there.
Our friends at LoneShark Games in Booth #2735 will run demos on a Dining Game Table and D-Verse NEXUS in Booth #2959 will run demos on a Kitchen Game Table at bar height.
You can also see us online as Gen Con will stream live from a Streamer Game Table (several people online are using the hashtag #GenCant as a way to organize local events during Gen Con for those unable to attend). You’ll see demos of games from publishers all over Gen Con 2018!
Watch their Twitch channel for the live streams!
Soon at Gen Con HQ…
We’re proud to say one of our Dining Game Tables will soon grace the offices of Gen Con HQ. Here’s a preview photo of the table…
Want your family crest, company logo, or other image on the top of your Carolina Game Table? Contact Clint ([email protected]) to get a quote.
We expect this to be the best Gen Con ever and hope y’all will stop by the booth to say “Hi!”
Holiday Delivery Deadline: Order by July 15th!
If you want your new game table in time for holiday delivery this year, you need to order right away!
Ideally, orders need to be in by today for holiday delivery. But we can still offer shipping alternatives if you place your order before Sunday, July 15th. After that we will try to have your table ready in time for the holidays, but we cannot make any promises.
Even though we have a four month production time at our factory, delivery is the factor which delays orders around the holidays. There are simply a LOT of deliveries, and everyone wants to make it the most memorable holiday ever!
Here are some shortcuts for you:
Starting at $2199 Tablezilla (fancy graphic coming soon!)
Office “Closed” (Website Open!) for Fourth of July Holiday
Next week everything in the furniture industry around here shuts down, and Carolina Game Tables is no exception. We’ll be checking in remotely, and the website will still accept and process orders.
As always, the best way to reach us is our [email protected] address. That one email address goes to everyone (Clint, Jodi, and Sarah) and someone should reply shortly.
We hope your family enjoys a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday!
Origins 2018 and Game Table “Baby Pics!”
The Origins Game Fair delivered yet again! We got to play games, paint minis, see old friends, meet new friends, and debut our new Counter and Bar height tables. Still, one of the highlights of any convention for us is the chance to see “baby pictures.”
What do we mean by “baby pictures?” It’s when folks come by the booth with photos of their Carolina Game Table in the home and in use. We love to hear the stories of the games played and the fun had using the tables. We got a couple of pictures ourselves of these folks. Here are JW Merrow and Marty & Carri Miller showing off their “baby pics.”
Of course, we love seeing “baby pics” like this one, too. This beautiful baby was born recently to a Carolina Game Table family!
Congratulations! It’s a new gamer in the family!
Thanks, all of you! We hope you enjoy your Fourth of July holiday and are looking forward to playing games this winter holiday season too. 🙂
Do you have “baby pics” to share? Please email them to [email protected]!
Origins 2018, #SlayALZ, and Winter Holiday Planning is NOW!
We have so much to tell you! Find us at Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio this weekend. #SlayALZ with Saving Throw’s 24 hour marathon on Twitch this Friday. And think NOW about ordering if you want your game table in time for Thanksgiving and other winter holidays!
Origins 2018: Find Us in Booth 1151!
We’re showing off our new table heights this year at Origins Game Fair, so if you’ll be in Columbus, Ohio, this weekend stop by Booth 1151 in Hall B (the Exhibit Hall) to see!
We’re bringing a Dining Game Table at dining height, a Coffee Game Table at coffee height, and two Kitchen Game Tables: one at counter height and one at bar height.
You can also see our Streamer Game Table in the Game Trade Magazine Booth (#145), where they will be interviewing game publishers and showing off the latest releases all weekend long! If you are not coming to Origins, you can watch their show live on the Game Trade Media website, Twitch channel, or Facebook page.
Our largest and tallest table (Tablezilla with cup holders at bar height = $2599) is not attending. You know, for quality construction of an eight foot long, three and a half foot tall mahogany table, keeping the price under $3k isn’t bad. And our prices always include a table top for everyday dining. Read more about our construction here.
#SlayALZ with Saving Throw on The Longest Day and let’s beat Alzheimer’s!
Our friends at Saving Throw have a Streamer Game Table and posted a mock review of it recently. Hilarious! Check it out in this link.
They host a 24 hour streaming marathon on their Twitch channel beginning at 8pm Pacific this Friday, June 15 2018, with the goal of raising $10,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association. We hope you will consider being generous for this worthy cause. Both Clint and Jodi have family members affected by this heartbreaking disease.
And even if you aren’t in a position to donate now, tune into Saving Throw on Friday for some amazing entertainment! See the graphic for their schedule. All of it will be played on that gorgeous Streamer Game Table!
Winter Holiday Plans Begin NOW!
If you’ve been thinking about hosting your holiday party with a new game table in the mix, better order soon!
Remember, our 4 month production time does not include shipping time. To get a table by mid-December, it should be ordered by the end of June. That’s two and a half weeks to plan, prepare, and place a deposit. After that, there’s still a short window but only for those who can pick up their table from Hickory, NC. If you need White Glove Delivery and a game table for the holidays, the end of June is the last chance. Don’t miss it!

May the Fourth Cinco de Mother’s Memorial Day Cup Holders Sale!
Carolina Game Tables Cup Holders Sale!
May is a pretty cool month. It’s got Star Wars Day, Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day…oh, and one more very special occasion.
On Friday, May 12th 1995, Clint Black and Jodi Thies met for the very first time.
If not for that meeting, all of the amazing things we’ve been able to create together wouldn’t exist, including Carolina Game Tables. Since now feels like a pretty good time to celebrate the awesomeness our shared life has given us, we want to “pay it forward” as they say.
So for the next four weeks, cup holders are our gift to you. Order a table with cup holders during May and use that style’s coupon code (listed below) to get the cup holders FREE!
Dining Game Table Coupon Code: Cups4Dining
Dining Game Table with Cup Holders in use during International Tabletop Day!
Streamer Game Table Coupon Code: Cups4Streamer
Streamer Game Table with Cup Holders.
Tablezilla Game Table Coupon Code: Cups4Zilla
Tablezilla with Cup Holders. Top off and on.
About Our Cup Holders
As a reminder, our cup holders are aluminum and removable for ease of cleaning (hand wash only, please!). With the top on, they’re completely hidden, so your dining table looks like a dining table.
Since they’re removable, there’s an extra benefit that isn’t obvious at first. It’s easy to reach under the table and push the cup holder up a bit to help remove the top. Or vice versa, push the cup holder up when putting the top back on to set it down gently. Not needed, but convenient.
We know buying a table is a big decision, so this offer runs from now through all day Friday, June 1st (not officially “May” but we’re mavericks like that).
Thanks to everyone for making Carolina Game Tables successful and have a great May the Fourth Cinco de Mother’s Memorial Day!

Height Options: Coffee, Dining, Counter, and Bar!
We’re ecstatic to announce all our table designs now have multiple height options!
We’ve had people asking for different heights from the very beginning, so this is a fairly big deal for us. We also know it seems like an easy thing to implement from the outside, but for our little company it took some doing (see Feedback, below). That’s boring, though–let’s get to the new options!
TL;DR? You can upgrade a Kitchen, Dining, Streamer, or Tablezilla from dining height to counter height for $100, or from dining to bar height for an additional $200. On the Coffee Game Table design, upgrade from coffee to dining height for $100.

Feedback, or, How We Got Here
Carolina Game Tables uses a modern furniture manufacturing facility we share with other small companies like ourselves and the employees work from templates. Because of this process we’re able to deliver sturdy, quality built game tables which will function beautifully for decades, while also keeping costs low.
So if we’re using a production line, why was it so hard to make longer legs? We had to create a new manufacturing template for each design’s leg height. Some things stay the same no matter the leg height, but others change you might not think of, like the steel corner brackets fastening the legs to the table base. It’s drilled in different configurations for each height for maximum stability. This means the legs on a dining height Tablezilla can’t be replaced with counter height legs–the bolts won’t fit the bracket.
We really can’t help most people who have custom build requests, but we like to hear what they’re looking for! That helps us decide what to focus on next, and it takes months to get to the point of announcing something like this. So email [email protected] if you have any ideas or suggestions!
