Will that game fit on my coffee table or will we have to play in the dining room? Before buying a game its nice to know if the board will fit where you were planning to play it. Here are some of the games I own and the dimensions of the boards.

The board is 21" x 21" and the ships about 11" x 8" (Days of Wonder edition). With 5 players you need some room for this one.

The box advertises the "Giant 20"x30" Gameboard!", which is kind of funny to me. I guess non-Euro gamers think that 20"x30" IS a giant gameboard!

I'm not exactly sure how large this board is, but It's pretty huge. Also, there is one course where you can combine two of the tracks (not sure which ones) to create one huge monster track. This is would be the largest game board I can think of.

The original SPI version. As can be seen by the size of the box, this was a monster. Paper, too, so it couldn't even stick over the edge of the table by itself!

How could we forget Carabande/Pitchcar? This has to be the largest "board" of all games listed on the 'Geek!

33x22 and the largest game I own. In fact, when I needed to buy a coffee table recently, I measured this first and then went to IKEA and bought the VITABY table because it was the only one large enough to comfortably accomodate this game.

Hmmm, maybe I should also enter this under the Top 10 Signs You're A BoardGameGeek list...

You MUST put this on your floor to play it.....unless you have a stompin' big table that is. But that's what makes this game so fun.

As far as I know, this is the largest monster from SPI. It puts together War in the East and War in the West. It has nine 22"x34" maps, while War in the Pacific has seven and Campaign for North Africa "only" 5 of them.

The game uses tons of 4"x4" tiles to build the board as you explore. We started playing this on the dinner table. The tiles quickly spread like a plague and we had to move the game to the floor. Since you could keep exploring in a straight line you could make one of the longest game boards on the site. It would be an incredibly boring game but at least the long line of tiles running through your house would look impressive!

The Supremacy Mega-Map measures in at 36 x 48 inches (914 x 1219 mm). I used to have a laminated Mega-Map (the only way to go!) - and I recall that 6-8 player games would take up our entire dining room table with two leaves inserted (so we're talking something like 40 x 96 inches) plus using the buffet and a couple of fold-up serving tables to accommodate everything.

According to ad inserts that Supremacy Games used to package with the expansion sets in the late 1980's, the Mega-Map was originally to be 38 x 54 inches.

About eight years ago, I crafted my own super-size Mega-Map, on a 48 x 96 inch (1219 x 2438 mm!) sheet of poster paper (cut from a roll.) whistle
