Jeremy,

I had a question about which Church chairs you got. As uncomfortable as it is, I have a very large person who comes to our house for gaming and this weekend bent a third, cheap folding chair. They are great friends and we want them to keep coming over, but I need to get some sturdier chairs for him and his wife. I see these church chairs are rated to 800 lbs so they should support them. Which model would you recommend?

Thanks!

The site he mentioned was www.churchchairs4less.com

You might have some luck with these 21" wide cushioned chairs. They claim they are very strong and wide enough to be comfortable for any size of rear -end

Ed - I got the 21" model that Tim mentioned. Your situation is one of the considerations I was looking at in the new game room. From what I can tell so far, the frame is really sturdy and well built, so I'm hoping they live up to the rating.

Frankly, I couldn't find any other source of chairs that were both this price and rated this sturdy.

Could you follow up on the podcast your opinions of the different items you purchased for your game room. I am in need of chairs and wonder what your opinion of this company's product.

thank you, mike

As a regular user of church chairs, they're comfortable and sturdy. They can take a large load. The main complaint might be that they are larger than wooden chairs, but for a reason - they're designed to seat people for an hour or two at a time comfortably. Most have some option for adding scotch guard or similar to protect the fabric (as drinks/food are common for these as well). Usually you can stack 6-8 high if you need the space.

Most likely you won't need the under-seat book-holder or the back-of-seat pouches.

Talk of church chairs instantly brings thoughts of SNL and The Church Lady ;-)

Actually, I did order the versions with the under-seat racks but haven't installed them yet. We do a fair amount of RPGing and thought it would be a good place for books, and the pouch is a good place to put the rulebook for the game you're playing when you aren't referencing it.

Downside, the stairs don't stack with the rack is installed.

Sure - now that the room is pretty much done we'll be moving our gameplays there, so we'll be able to have the whole cast discuss soon.

They should still stack, but maybe this is a different brand of chair. We tear down every week at a church where our chorus rehearses and they have racks and stack well. (and in those cases, those hand-trucks are _great_ )

Just saying that if you only want a chair for sitting, you can likely not worry about those and perhaps see if there are options without the things on the sides to hook chairs together.

I can definitely see the usefulness for stashing RPG stuff.
