You were asked – TMP link

"Not enough space" is a reasonably frequent theme here, but we all know that "enough" can be a reasonably elastic concept. So, minimum here: what is the smallest table you in your adult years and not living in junior enlisted barracks have been reduced to for an afternoon or evening game? Vacations and lake cottages do not count, and I don't care that you couldn't leave it up overnight.

#1 answer: 4' x 6'
#2 answer: 4' x 4' and 4' x 3' (tie)

I once had a 4x2 (did DBA on it).

My gaming table is 4' x 4'. Ideal for most of the games I play.

If I ask nicely, I can get access to our 5' x 3' dining table.

I have a table 6' X 8' in my soldier room. That is my limit for the last 20 years.

5x3 and 4x3 cover most of my wargame requirements.I have plenty of space for those two types.

6x3 is what I currently have but feel I need that extra foot to make it 6x4.

5x8. I have a dedicated table. Most of my games are thought of, planned for and executed in this box. I play mostly four player scenario driven games should you care.
