A short time ago I built a "portable"gaming table. Okay, portable is a bit of a stretch, but a decent sturdy table. Then a few days later I noticed two smaller tables I was gifted from a local brick and mortar gaming store closing. Holy unnecessary construction Batman! The stand for the larger table didn't fit through my back patio door and I had to haul it around the long way. Add to that the raised edge on the table prevented the terrain cloth form laying flat, so the smaller tables supported on plastic folding tables was they way it went this time. The previous game was just Martin and I, but more recently Jonathan joined us for some Alpha Strike in the outdoors. Alpha Strike is a larger battle version of Battletech.
The first setup with large table. The cover prevents the tree from dropping crap on us.
The refined layout with Jonathan and Martin. Much better, and easier to move.
