I decided to pick up a Ping Pong ( Table Tennis ) table to use as a gaming table and also to play ping pong.
The table size is a large 9x5 feet which would make for a nice large size battle area.
After looking on Craigslist (local internet want ads ) for a used table and not having any luck, I went out to Kmart to see how much a new one was , and was happy to find out that they were listed at $130. and this model folds up to store, and has rolling wheels which is just what I was after.
The local store had sold out but they directed me to one in the next town, and when I got to checkout to pay for it I was even more excited to find out it was marked down even less, only $52.00.
With a bit of luck and some thrifty shopping you can find a great gaming table that costs about the same as a new plastic Games Workshop model, and your wife might even let you keep it if you play a few games of table tennis, or buy it for her for Valentines day.
after simple assembly its ready to play, 5 x 9 feet, the net comes right of.
here it is folded up to store
My next step is to buy some isulation foam board and start on some scenery,
I want to make a kind of simple or generic field and then some rocky mountains, perhaps I can get Mike to come over and help out.
