Hey guys! Currently my group plays board games on my hard wood table but the problem is that it makes for a hard time picking up cards and rolling dice is too loud and they go everywhere. Is there a type of table cover or mat that I can put over my table that would eliminate these issues? Maybe something similar to the material on poker tables and other gaming tables? Please give me some suggestions, thanks so much.

We made a sweet tabletop for an existing table for about $50 total (plus some labor). Check out our video here:

We still use it now, about 4 years later.

This is what I use:

http://www.hookloopoutlet.com/neoprene-sheets.html

It's basically a huge mousepad. Recommend getting 5mm. I tried thinner (3mm), it was okay, but then bought 5mm & it's great.

It rolls very nicely and won't crease or wrinkle. Makes picking up cards & bits a breeze and dice roll on it beautifully (and silently). Plus you can cut it to size (it is big) using a razor blade & straight edge.

I have the 5mm Nylon/Mesh Skin. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I just use a plain dark table cloth - it makes the pieces show up clearly, makes dice rolls quieter and it's easier to pick up cards.

We went to JoAnnes fabric and bought this material that is foam rubber backed, and black felt on the front.

a 3x3 piece runs about $2-3.

You can get a black over-sized yoga mat (84"x36"x.2") for $24 on Amazon.
