Hello everyone! I hope you all had a lovely week so far and will have a wonderful weekend!Question of the week: What sort of table setup do you use? Finding a 6x4 space is quite difficult.
A pair of 3x6 tables.
Upgrades go on the play area. Run over the opposing commander's face to assert dominance.
Either a 5’3” x 2’4” kitchen table or an old baseboard for my sons long gone OO/HO train set measuring 5’ x 3’6”. Upgrade cards are off to one side. This means we both regularly forget some upgrades in the heat of the moment (favourite ones for me are Thermal Shields or my Interdictor Targeting Scrambler - always forget these without fail).
I use a 6x4 gaming surface with a 6” wide lower tray on each end of the table on a custom built table I made for my gaming room. All my other games I play need 6x4 as standard
I have 2 3x3 1/2" pink foam boards that were painted black with stars and a planet on one that we throw down on whatever table is free. Sometimes we just use a single 3x3 when playing smaller point games.
Our Gaming club and FLGS have 6x4' tables (MDF sheet on top of trestles). To play at home I have two 3x3 MDF boards to go on the kitchen table. Deepcut studios mat goes on top of these. Ship & upgrade cards have to go in the deployment area.
I use either a 6x4 area created with three 2x4 MDF boards placed on the dining room table, or an 8x4 area from two 4x4 MDF boards on a pool table.
It also isn't uncommon to put a 3x4 MDF sheet wrapped in black felt on the table and just play with the 4x3 "setup area" using 1x1 panels if we run off one of the sides.
