Whoever proves to be most influential will receive the honour of an audition with the Emperor in the Palace of Heavenly Purity.

Board Game Tables
BoardGameTables.com has launched a new online table builder.

Ok. This is pretty cool. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.

You can drag some sliders around and it shows you how different games (Catan, Scythe, etc) will fit on the table as you change the size of the table in real time.

Then you can add cup holders, choose different woods, stains, the whole thing.

See exactly what your dream table could look like. There's even an option to save it for later. If you do buy, you can spread your payment over 3 months so that it doesn't hit your credit card all at once.

Super cool visual.
