Board Game Table Reviews: Join In On The Dresden Discussion

Let’s face it – board game tables aren’t exactly the most common piece of furniture you’ll come across in your friend’s living room. Because of this, reviews and testimonials are some of the most important things to consider when picking out your new custom table.

We recently decided to poll a handful of our previous customers to put together a kind of review hub; a place for you to consider everything you’ll need to be aware of before pulling the trigger on the Dresden. Some of these customers have been enjoying their own table for years, while others purchased their table quite recently.

Below, we’ve compiled all of the key takeaways and interesting bits of feedback we’ve gained from these conversations. We hope that our findings can help you decide on which specific features and accessories you’ll be adding to your new convertible board game table in the future.

What do people really want when it comes to a board game table?

Over time, we’ve realized that there are a handful of specific features that our customers are looking for when it comes to buying a board game table that can also function as a kitchen or dining room table. This feedback helps us improve our products and come up with new features and customization options designed to help you stay more organized.

Here are some of the main reasons game night enthusiasts love to use our modular gaming table:

  • Quickly and easily converts between a gaming table and dining surface

  • Has a high-quality, modern style that doesn’t look and feel cheap or tacky

  • A recessed playing surface covered with premium felt

  • Plenty of customization options that fit in with any aesthetic

  • Has a substantial level of separation between the two surfaces to protect it from spills

With all of that in mind, let’s get into some of our actual reviews:

Reviews from customers who own the Dresden board game dining room table

A product without real reviews left by customers who have tested it out is worthless, at least in terms of knowing if your money will be well-spent. With that in mind, let’s go over a handful of our most comprehensive reviews – and a big thank you to our customers who have taken the time out of their busy lives to write these:

Brendan left us this heartwarming review, where they highlight the challenge of finding a multifunctional board game table that’s both effective for gaming and high-quality enough to use as a centerpiece in a dining room:

Ben left us one of our favorite board game table reviews, a short but sweet review complete with pictures highlighting our willingness to work with customers who may be in the middle of moving homes but will have a dedicated game room in the near future:

Here you’ll find Ryan’s review – they added a few pictures that highlight the ability of our gaming table to transition between an elegant dining surface or coffee table and a practical felt-covered gaming surface for game nights (and they also mention our helpful Discord server):

Jennifer left us this touching testimonial that discusses our commitment to only providing you with furniture that’s meant to last – our tables may take some time to craft, but it’s worth it in the end if you're big into board games:

Robert graciously wrote up an extensive review for us, where he talks about our ability to come up with a customized plan for their home. Robert preferred a table that had eight seats instead of six, and we’ve since added this custom size into our customization tool, found under the Battleground size option:

Raf, another one of our past customers who loves to play games mentioned here that guests of theirs employed in fields such as woodworking are often impressed by the level of craftsmanship involved in our table design:

Last but not least, Veronica left us an amazing board game table review discussing the ease in which they’re able to swap between half the table being a space for board games and the other used as a dining table; highlighting how well protected the felt surface is from crumbs and spills beneath the dining cover:

Customer reviews help us improve the Dresden over time

Everyone loves a good review – whether you’re buying or selling something, reviews add a layer of humanity to online shopping which can definitely be a bit sterile or hard to navigate at times.

One of the best things about our customers is they continue to leave us incredible reviews, testimonials, and feedback – all of which help us improve our products. Not every review will be useful, but both small details and bigger changes that customers request have influenced our design decisions over the years.

Whether it’s a new idea that sparks a discussion among our team to a commonly requested feature that, over time, becomes standard – customer reviews genuinely influence and help our business grow.

A perfect example of this is that, through our reviews, we now know that some of the biggest regrets that our past customers have include not purchasing the option for custom dice bin covers or that they simply didn’t buy a large enough table – knowing this, we’ve since expanded our sizing to accommodate this.

Bandpass Design was created for gamers by gamers

Our reputation is stellar for a long list of reasons, but one of the main ones is that we actually understand the needs of game night enthusiasts because we all love to play games. Buying a cheaper board game table off other online marketplaces carries the risk of supporting designs that are drawn up by those who have never even played DND or a tabletop board game in their life.

We construct all of our tables in our woodshop, and this process has been built out from decades of experience working in related industries, all while coming home after work and on the weekends to enjoy playing our favorite board games.

If you'd like to find out more feel free to connect with us, and of course, stay tuned for future board game table reviews.

Join the discussion on our Discord server

We’ve even launched a Discord server, which serves as a central community hub for potential new customers and previous ones to talk about our products including the Dresden. This space allows us to provide amazing customer service as fast as possible.

For those who have never used Discord, it’s grown to be one of the easiest ways to connect with others online – unlike most forms of social media nowadays, Discord communities still manage to feel small and cozy instead of huge and overwhelming.

If you have any questions at all, please stop by our Discord server where we can answer them for you in real time (Discord Invite Code: tar93YtyJw).
