Sultan Gaming Table A few pic plus a link to my own site with photo's 5 Years, 4 Months ago  
Hello all,

Rather than trying to resize pictures so they can be posted on here I post a few that are already the proper size but the rest you'll have to look at my site.

Plus I will take more as time permits showing better detail of them.

Below is a brief description of the table.

gallery.me.com/thenorthman/100082

Hello all just had my Sultan Gaming table delivered by Geek Chic. They did a marathon drive up to Anchorage, Alaska from Mill Creek, Washington.

They had left early Thursday the 11th and arrived in Anchorage the 13th. They said it was quite an adventure. Once during driving they kind of went into a "valley" and were wondering why in the world did it suddenly get so cold in the van. Looked at the vehicle out door thermometer and it was showing -32 F (negative 32 degrees F.) Bloody cold!!! One they drove back up the hill it warmed up but still bloody cold!

I cannot thank them enough for bringing it up to me and doing it right before Christmas! (My birthday is the 25th of December so it was great.) They said they slept in the van so they would keep moving rather than get comfortable in a hotel. Once again I cannot thank them enough. I absolutely love the table. One of the two was diagnosed with having a hernia as well but still did the trip rather than delay it.

Plus I am glad the 7 and a half-foot table became an option for me half way through the time I made an order and before production started. Other wise I might not have been able to get it in the house. I new it would have been tight but didn't know it would be that tight.
My stairs are open up to about 20 or 25 feet from the bottom to the ceiling but just above the door and 6 feet from the door their is a ceiling 7 feet high and I just didn't take into account the "bridging" that would need to be done. What I mean by that is even though it is seven feet high when the table starts going up the stairs the useable space gets smaller depending how long it is. So by the third stair it might only have 6 1/2 feet of free space. I do not think with this table it didn't get closer than six feet but the extra eighteen inches would of made getting the longer one useable space down to the minimum 5 1/2 feet. This also is not giving room for anything else since the table is 5 1/2 feet wide. I can always explain better with visual so if there is questions on what I mean I will post a picture later explaining it.
My table is officially called the “Abridged Highlander Sultan”. What does that mean? Abridged is the shorter table, which is seven and a half feet long, and the Highlander is where you have one end station as a double player station with an integral dice tower in between them. The two layer end station; Highlander, does not have the different drawers but this allows for a better viewing angle of book/paper material laid out when the top is swung out. This allows a two-player game when people are usually standing to have their mini’s sitting on this lower level and easily viewable. The side stations are more in line with a role-playing game where people are sitting down and then the books or other material is viewable from a lower level.
Also new from the prototype that was on show at Gencon is a “tube” storage behind the middle drawer below the dice rolling station on each side of the table. This is PERFECT! It spans the width of the table so your maps that you get printed out either from Geek Chic or later at a professional place has a safe area to be in. You can also put your sheets that come with the table of the “grids”. You have a choice of two the come standard I couldn’t decide so I got four different things for a little extra. I got 1-inch square grid, 1.25-inch hexagonal grid, star map, and a shot of farm fields for airplane battles. I am contemplating going to Kinko’s to get a large green swampy looking/murky water mat for under Dwarven Forge pieces. There are just so many different scenarios that a person can come up with to print out to put under the Plexiglas.
As an unadvertised bonus in my eyes is the space under the map area that allows storage of miniatures or any thing else a person can think of. Heck I bet if a thief were in your house he wouldn’t even think of looking under this area. It is unadvertised because it doesn’t look “pretty”. There is a total of eight “bays” that can hold two Army Transport foams lengthwise and can hold about 6 to 7 inches. You do not want to overload the spaces though because the map area is not heavy enough to keep it level.
The built in dice tower on the Higlander end station is a nice added feature they now do as an option. You can even have each of the side stations have a dice tower but it wasn’t a option for my table at the time but it is a nice one. Maybe if I get a second table in the future. :O)
What I am looking at is making or talking Geek Chic into making some type of nice looking shelf system / drawer system for under the table. There are supports that something could rest on. See picture.

Hey, what's your doctorate going to be in? I've got one in philosophy -- which is why I'm now in law school. ;)

They are currently producing a "Spartan Sulatn"! Not sure what it involves or what features it drops but on their site they are even saying it will be about half the price but not sure.

It would be interesting to see it when it is made though. Could be a good second table when I get the room for it though. :O)

Yea it is a little tight but my wife actually loves it. It does LOOK GOOD!

What I need next is to get proper chairs for it. I am looking at getting or having made "Drafting" style chairs. That can be adjusted for the different games and or when the table is used for a dining room table.

I am very happy with the table. If you look at one of the pictures you'll see my boy playing on top of it as well. It is a good supervised play pin as well.

I'm finishing my BS in Psychology, pursuant to a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. I figure everyone's heard of starving artists, but have you heard of a starving physical therapist?

Absolutely beautiful. Thanks a lot for sharing.

I'm watching the company and hope one day it will be possible to get such a table to the UK. The Abridged version should work for me.

One day, one day ...

The wife just got a nice 1-series BMW (uesed) - so once that is payed off I will need something to spend my money on ...

That table gets a Triple You Rock the Free World. As soon as I build my new house this will be included. I hope they have bigger versions by then. I am building a new room just for gaming.
