There is a shelf in a lot of homes that is entirely dedicated to board games, isn’t there? You put Scrabble, Monopoly, and Hungry Hippos all in one place, just to take them down for some family-friendly fun at Christmas before putting them away in frustration because your kid cousin keeps cheating and everyone lets him. Very unfair. It’s sometimes hard to keep track of board game pieces and having them take up a lot of space in your home may not be ideal, which is where the Infinity Game Table comes in.
Arcade1Up, a massive arcade game producer, has begun a Kickstarter campaign which teams up with many of the biggest board game makers in the world to make the Infinity Game Table. It’s a table with a screen on the top with board games in it. Like a giant tablet for all the family, or even just like an equivalent to a console for board games.
The Kickstarter campaign (which has already reached £550,000 out of the £40,000 Arcade1Up was aiming to raise) shows off the potential for having almost any boardgame at your fingertips. Designed to work for one to six players, this device will have over 50 games available as well as colouring books and puzzles. Of course, it will also be wifi enabled so if your friend wants to play with you from another location, you can absolutely do that.
The table is also apparently easily storable so when your friends come round that hate board games, you can hide your secret passion from them.
Just some of the games that are coming to the Infinity Game Table include Monopoly, Ticket To Ride, Scrabble, Battleship, Trivial Pursuit, Operation, and more.
