yes, I have a geekchic emissary (3'x6' vault, 3'10"x7' exterior dimensions) that doubles as my dining room table. I'm getting a wyrmwood table as a dedicated gameroom table. I'd like to get the wargaming size, but I have a pretty small game room. I might have to settle for medium.GardenDM wrote: ↑Thu Apr 15, 2021 3:29 pm Do you use a vaulted gaming table (i.e. table with a recessed play area, typically 3-4 inches deep)? What are the dimensions of your table and vault? How well does the whole setup work for play and what tips do you have to share?
We're getting a Wyrmwood Modular Gaming Table in the next month or two and having never played TTRPG with terrain and miniatures at a vaulted table, I'm curious to hear everyone's thoughts. Pros, Cons, would you get one again if you were starting over or stick with a standard table, etc.
The geekchic works good for most games, but I often wish the vault was a bit wider than 3'. I don't like accessories on my table. The player desks, are inconvenient and push me away from the table. It's much nicer to keep everything in the vault, but then 3' can be a bit narrow. I'd definitely go wargaming size if you have the space.
If I were to do it over, I'd save money by not buying accessories. I rarely use mine (two desks, 2 cup holders, 6 wine glass holders, 2 bins). The block for storing the leaves is very handy, I'd definitely get one of those. I also would avoid contrasting stains. Try as we might, the table gets nicked, but because it's natural walnut none of the nicks shows up. The wyrmwood dark espresso finish on very light maple will probably show every scratch. (woodworkers can correct me if I'm wrong...)
