A Demo Table For The Fantasy Trip

As part of preparing to run demos of The Fantasy Trip: Legacy Edition at conventions over the summer, my wife and I used Hirst Arts molds, dental stone, and a lot of time to construct a 30-inch round, bar-height demo table for the game. I wrote about the construction of the table at the Steve Jackson Games website, but that post only shared a handful of photos of the table.

This BGG blog post serves one purpose: To share several photos of the 30-inch round table at various stages of the process. As I wrote in the website post, my wife deserves 99% of the credit for this table. She handled the casting and the majority of the assembly. Without her efforts, this table would not have turned out so very great.

It took several weekends of work to build the table and, ultimately, it turned out to do its job perfectly at our recent FnordCon event in Austin. What job was that? To attract players to the table and keep them there to enjoy the game.

Click on each pic for a larger look and, if you wish, feel free to ask questions in the comments. While I may not have all of the answers, I'll share what I know. And if you decide to construct your own table, please post pics and show all of us! It is always fun to see new creations.
