I always seem to need a 8x5 games space for my games . As I love terrain !

8x5 does it for my group

About the same.

Coolyork, I prefer a 6' x 12' table at the club house. At cons I usually ask for a 6 x 10 for any games I run. I find any wider makes it difficult to reach the middle of the table. In my younger days I had an 8' x 8'.

Huzzah to lots of terrain!

8 x 5 or 8 x 4 – but we play in 54mm with half size units.

I have 6 – 2.5' by 6' banquet tables. The games can be any shape I can make out of them. That said, 6*10 is very common.

6x8 or 6x10 or 6x12, depending on scenario/size of game.

6 x 8 is standard for me. But recently did a small unit street fight and a 5 x 5 or 6 x 6 works great.

rhacelt07 Jun 2017 12:50 p.m. PST

4x8 or 5x12 for bigger games
