Hi all!

I’m moving into an apartment and looking for a table solution that can be stored away behind a couch or bookshelves. The largest games would be something like Twilight Imperium with 6 players. Either a detachable tabletop or folding table or some other solution. I’m open to any ideas- thanks a lot!

We have one of those fold in half "suitcase" tables (6 feet, I think).

There are also fold in half round ones, depending on the shape of the room.

I got the "Lifetime 25402 Commercial Round Fold In Half Table, 5 Feet" from Amazon and are very happy with it. Have not tried TI3 on it but we played other games with large space requirements with up to 6 players and had plenty of space. The table is also quite sturdy but not too heavy. It is not that small when folded but should store behind a couch.

Seriously, look no farther.

This thing is plenty big for every game we've played on it, and stores tons of generic components in those drawers. We have dice, playing cards, coins, and poker chips in ours and there is still tons of room. It is all wood and great quality, and works well as a decoration table when not in use for gaming. We display a fancy dice tower on ours, next to a banzai.

Like a monkey, ready to be shot into space. Space monkey! Ready to sacrifice himself for the greater good. Without pain, without sacrifice, we would have nothing!

Get 2 of these and support any game. 6' not the 4' linked.

Get a six-foot folding plastic table. I would not get a four-foot-long table. If you want a nicer gaming table, you can purchase a Game Topper for the top of it:

I came to talk about this table, it's amazing! It's solid, plenty big, folds away tiny and has those amazing drawers for all your bits and bobs. Couldn't recommend this more

The table legs would bother me with this one.

I wonder if that support leg is secured in some way. If not, an accidental leg stretch could end a game pretty quick.

You click it into a slot under the table so it's very secure

+1 to this table. It's a lot sturdier than I anticipated, and it is one of the few (or only) 5 foot round tables that folds in half.
