Hello!

I'm thinking on buying/building a new table because the one I have isn't big enough to play Eclipse at ease. It is 90x120 cm.

What's the size of the table where you play?
And how many players do you usually play in that table?

Thanks

I played on 205x90 with 9 players. All fitted quite OK. But we kept the upgrades in the game box and just passed it over when needed.
Base game+ Rise of the Ancients expansion.

I would suggest at least 1 meter square just for the map. The rest depends on how creative you can get with space.

My game room table is 160 by 90 and works very well for 4 players and can tightly fit 5. Usually we will put in one extension though for 200 which can comfortably fit six players, although the ones further out are then struggling to reach all of the board.

It also depends on how you handle technology (we use the compact sheet) and Upgrade Tiles (I have a sorting box/pallette box for them https://www.modulor.de/en/palette-box-with-rubber-lid-plasti...).

49" x 97" (124 cm x 246 cm)

Usually play 4 or 5 which takes about half the table. Haven't played 9 on it yet but would have lots of room for it.

Six player Eclipse - plays really well on a 6 foot round table.

Four players fit really well on the 5 foot round table and a bit cramped on a 4 foot square one.

Hope that helps.
