I've been searching all over and I can't seem to find this information.
I'm thinking about giving this game as a gift and board dimension could be a problem (some boardgames and living in a one-room apartment with a small table don't agree with eachother).
How big is it? Thanks a lot.

I don't remember the exact dimensions, but this game (board, cards and figs) has some serious sprawl. If your table can't hold at least the entire base game of Arkham Horror, don't bother.

The table CAN hold the entire base game of Arkham Horror, BUT none of the big box expansions (i'm going to buy one or two of the small ones).
Do you think it can handle FANG?

The board is 30.5" by 20.5" . You also need another 3 inches or so along both sides of the board and the top of the board for card piles (the sides) and Artifacts (the top).

And then dont forget space in front of each player for their big character card, any equipment cards they are carrying.

If it will play Arkham Horror with all it;s cards, chits, and character space needs, FANG will fit fine. In fact, I think this is an almost perfect size comparison.

There are some players I have trouble bringing to the table without beer or wine. Fortunately I have the type of non-jerk friends that use coasters and/or a side table to hold their drinks.

The board itself is almost exactly the same size as a typical Risk board. However there are a fair amount of bits, decks and stockpiles that need to have some space.

Drink tables, old chap! And don't forget the quaint coasters from foreign lands....
