Although I don't own a BBO table, I've been doing quite a bit of research and think I've settled on a Helmsley myself as opposed to the Geek Chic or Boardgametables.com products. I personally prefer a nice clean look so I think I'll be going with the upgraded suited speed cloth as opposed to a template graphic.

They have some board game table specific designs for the graphics, which I'm sure you've seen and out of those I like the war chest design. Not overly busy and I like the color scheme. That Traveler graphic is just way too much and is too distracting when you've got your layout on the table.

You mention not going with the top for the Helmsley table, but doesn't it automatically come with it? I'd also request a continuous armrest rather than the standard dealer position setup for poker.

Good luck and please please post some pics when you get your table. I'd love to see one setup in a home in action!! (I won't get mine til the holidays)

I think less is more. Don't get something that will distract from the game you are playing. Also, dark colors tend to show more cardboard dust than lighter colors do.
