    Roleplaying Game Table Sizes

    Hey there,
    What is your preferred RPG game table size for 6 people?
    And links to where you've purchased are most welcome.
    Right now our table is far too big and players can't reach the map mat.
    Not looking for the $1500 massive setup, just a comfortable size and price, possibly a smaller table with a preferred size of plywood on top.

    Thanks for the recommendations.

    I use a 8' X 4' table. I apologize, I cannot provide a link as I actually built it at home (MDF board laying around, some 3X3 wood that I got off a old pallet at work, purchased some wheels to move the thing around).

    I have found that it fits 7 well. The two people at the head positions sometimes have difficulty reaching, but that is about it.

    We have used an 8' x 4' sheet of 3/4" plywood on either a dining room table or on a set of sawhorses. Plenty of room for 6-7 players. DM has a separate card table set up for all their stuff.

    We use a couple of big plastic folding tables from Costco side-by-side which work nicely.

    Honestly, that is what I do. I used two 6' banquet tables from Target. Works just fine side-by-side.

    At the shop we use a pair of 6x2 or 8x2 white folding plastic tables from (walmart/costco/target? - probably costco) depending upon the group size.


    At home its a 6x4 dining room table picked up cheap at a garage sale.
    Fits the space & only has to seat 4-5.

    A combination of these:
    I use a 4' x 8' 3/4 inch sheet of plywood covered in felt sitting on top of a large plastic table. I use a lot of terrain and wish I had a slightly larger table, but I'm a little too lazy to make it a priority.
