Portable Game Tables


Recommended Posts

I find the blatant booth babe setup tasteless, and it is obsurdly overpriced for something made of cardboard.

Cardboard=/=packing box, same as plastic =/= soda cup. There are different degrees of cardbosrd. It's versatile.

 

(Still way too niche for me.)

I see what you're saying, but I believe it paints too uniform a picture of Europe. For example, in Italy they dine on slabs of marble while the Brits sleep on stone beds covered with ivy, and in Franc

All furniture in Europe is made out of cardboard, just as all furniture in Canada is made out of snow.    Or ice if you are rich.

Fact check: not all Americans have huge houses and lots of big cars. Cities are always cramped. My family of four lives in 800sq feet, and I take the bus to work; not for lack of money, but because it

Cardboard can be very tough like the cardboard bicycle that was developed last year. Although it was suppose to be available for $20 and ended up being $290 plus $40 shipping.

:huh: Leeeeettle bit of a difference from the advertisement, I see. That would irk me.

Here in Sweden we do not manufacture anything ourselves, but take what we can get when raiding into other lands.

There is a material used in the US for political / election day signs (which back in the olden days were made of cardboard: "it was the style back then..." ) and it looks like cardboard, only it isn't cardboard, but it is corrugated all the same, but only on the inside...anyway when it rains, which isn't very often these days, those don't get all wet and droopy, cause that's what happens when cardboard gets wet ya see...but these newfangled things don't, well they don't get droopy, they still get wet, only not so much 'cause it don't rain enough...but anyhow they should build these tables out of the newfangled plastic stuff...and make 'em waterproof...

It is not really surprising to me that this is not appealing to many americans and that they don't ship to the US. Americans have cheap furniture easily available and space and transport is not as much of an issue in the US from my experience. 

For context, consider that I live in a 900 square foot apartment (with my wife and two children) and that I do not own a car. Does it make sense then to be interested in an extremely lightweight gaming table that takes up little space and can be easily be carried physically, even quite far?

If I was an american, I'd just get some camping table(s) and store them in the garage. For transport I'd put them in my car. Problem solved.

They manage to offset the cheesecake with some healthy playtime with junior, so it all balances out.   Bosoms + bambinos = family values.

That's exactly my point.  Everyone assumes Canaders all live in igloos, but a lot of lazy people just go for the quinzhee, and in Quebec everyone lives in ice palaces, because they're pretentious.

So question. In Europe do they not have those massive plastic folding tables with metal legs for like 20 dollars? (15ish euros) Those are what I use for all my portable table needs.

Which, as vejiln points out right above you, would be a pain in the arse to store and transport.

We have massive foldable tables here. But they are massive and thus take up a lot of space and are not all that portable unless you have a big car. Also they cost more here.

So the thing about different words for snow is true.

 

:devil:

 

Edit: (My son has actually built a quinzhee at a winter camping outing in Boy Scouts. Of course, that was so much work that he sweated himself into hypothermia.  :huh:^_^  Learning experience.)

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
