I'm trying to design a board game coffee table and really bashing my head against the wall with this one. Some features I'm looking to get:
- Smaller foot print ~3'x3' (this is lax)
- Expands to 6'x'4 playable area
- Space for drinks, various other materials needed beyond 6'x4'
- Not an eyesore
Nice to Have: 1. Gaming pit or "cellar" aka, the playable area is recessed down a few inches so that you don't lose dice, etc.
I'm not a huge fan of either of these ideas. What clever, space saving ideas do you guys know of?
