This table is beautiful. It's all about the wood, which is gorgeous. I haven't had time to play games, but my daughter will be so jealous, because she's a black-jack freak. I put a put a 60", square, black table cloth on it and set it up for an intimate dinner. Very sexy.
This is great little game table for a corner of the room. I put it in a room that is 12 x 14. It fit so nice in the corner with two chairs. The kids have played chess every day since it arrived! From the picture, I thought the wood was black, but it is actually dark wood. The color is more like dark mahogony. It was easy to assemble. The chess peices are okay quality, but for the price, it is what I expected. You can always add your own game peices.
