Sometimes an opportunity arises to play one of your Grail Games. The stars line up just right, the players are all available and commit to showing, you've got food and beverages arranged, but at the last minute, you find that your wife claimed the big dining room table for a quilting project. Looks like you're stuck playing on the kiddie folding table!

This geeklist is intended to contain pictures of big games being played in venues and/or surfaces much to small for the game.

I'm seeding with some favorite pictures I've found through the geek.

Please contribute!

As my comment on the photo suggests, they have some expansion room on their laps.

My guess is that if a die or counter fell off the table, they'd just have to count it as gone.

I almost think this picture is staged.

I suspect these cards have double-sided tape or Velcro on their backs.

If I was a bettin' man, I'd wager that deck of cards has seen the floor more than once.

People playing Power Grid in a Polish train compartment, with the board apparently on their laps:
