That is officially awesome!

You should snag up coffee tables that have been discarded or are at flea markets for cheap, refurb them like that and sell them. Game tables are a hot item.

haha, thanks! If I had the time and energy to do that, I absolutely would. It was quite the endeavor, though. It didn't cost us much at all (beyond the plywood...) We already had all of the necessary tools and paint, but it was still quite a bit of time in the making. The clue board was especially irritating, because we had to find a way to make the minuscule grid lines. We ended up drawing in the lines with a sharpie and painting a thin coat of orange paint over the grid when it was dry. We then sealed everything when we were done.



I think we might paint the entire table black at some point, just to make it look a bit sharper and neater. Right now, the board games clash a bit with the wooden table.
