The 5×5 Game Table: A 5 Foot Square RPG, Board Game, or Card Game Table in your Dining Room!
Seats 8 Players!
This 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 Game Table Includes Removable Dining Top
Remove the dining top to reveal a 38″ x 38″ square play area on Game Night. The depth of the play area is three inches (3″), like all our dining height designs.
Signature Wide Edges on the 5×5 Game Table
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
- Full size books and rulebooks
- Game boxes
- Drinks and our inset cup holders (optional)
38″ Square Play Area Inside the 5×5 Game Table
Each Carolina Game Table’s play area is covered in commercial grade velveteen. This fabric is rip- stain- and fade-resistant, and is the kind preferred by hotel lobbies and bars for upholstery. The fabric is wrapped around thick 3/4″ plywood then bolted up into the table frame. The factory even veneers the plywood with mahogany so the underneath of the table looks nice! This plywood is not obstructed by the table legs, and intended to be replaced eventually.
See our Construction page for more details.
5×5 Game Table Available at Coffee, Dining, Counter, and Bar Height!
The table at standard dining height is 30″ tall, with 25″ of clearance underneath. We also offer this design at coffee height (20″) with about 15″ of clearance underneath it for a generously proportioned coffee game table (with cup holder options). The 5×5 can also be at counter height (36″) with about 31″ of clearance under it, or at bar height (42″) with about 37″ of clearance under it!
The legs of this design are 3.5″ square and solid Indonesian mahogany, connected to the table base with three steel bolts through a steel plate. Carolina Game Tables have corner leg supports for a wobble-free table which will last for decades to come. At the tip of each leg is a plastic leveler. Even if your floors are not level, your table can be!
It’s super sturdy! Read more about our construction here.

Matching Seating: Benches, Chairs, and Storage Benches
We have seating available and made to match your Carolina Game Table. These are made of the same solid wood and feature a sturdy bolt and mortise/tenon construction.
The Bench functions equally as well as a small side table as it does for extra seating. The Chair is so sturdy we use it to reach high places all the time (just like you probably would at home). Our new Storage Bench offers dual purpose seating and storage for cards, board games, dice, etc., and features customizable slats to help you organize your space.
Sorry, we do not have counter or bar height seating available.
Summary of Options for the 5×5 Game Table
Note on design change: All tables will have the seams as shown in the rotating image (GIF) above and a shinier finish for a more durable product. For more information, see this post. Some photos of tables made prior to this design change do not have the seams and may appear to have a matte finish.
You may request a more matte finish in your ordering notes, but please be aware the lacquer is more likely to chip because it is thinner.
Clicking on the images below will take you to a larger version.
Choose Cup Holders or No Cup Holders: we recommend cup holders. For the 5×5 Game Table, you may either choose a set of 4 cup holders for $100; or a set of 8 cup holders for $200. These are built into our wide edges so the dining top covers them when not in use. Cup holders are removable for cleaning.
Choose the height, finish, and fabric for your table.
