Rectangle is the best shape for most people. However, the hexagon works great for card games or six player games with a small board. It can also fit better in a smaller or round space.
Choose a length based on the size of your room, and how many people you want to seat at the table.
A 3ft - 3.5ft wide playing area is best for board and card games. 3ft width has a nice easy reach. 3.5ft width gives maximum room for player boards. The reach is starting to get long, but it is still pretty comfortable. A 3.25ft width is a nice compromise between the two. A 4ft wide playing area is best for minis and RPGs.
