A board game table is the perfect tool for playing board games. The Jasper is a board game table with a 3' x 5' playing area that seats six people. Made in the USA by BoardGameTables.com.


The biggest difference between a "normal" table and a board game table is the recessed playing area. There are 3" wide armrests around the perimeter of the table, and you play games in an arena.

This border:

  • Keeps bits from falling off the table.
  • Lets you power roll your dice - they just bounce off the sides.
  • Gives you a comfortable place to rest your arms and keeps them up out of the way so everyone can see player tableaus.
PADDED Surface

The Jasper has a one-piece padded, polyester felt surface in the play area. It is about 6mm thick with a rigid back so that it lays flat without bunching. Soft and smooth so cards slide across it, the play surface is heavy enough that it won't slide around.

Every table comes with a gray play surface. You will also have the option to buy additional felt playing surfaces in different colors.

The play surface:

  • Is cushioned so you can get your fingers under the cards and bits to pick them up easily.
  • Tucks into a groove on the inside of the armrest so there is absolutely no gap around the edge.
  • Has a heather gray color that hides dirt and cardboard dust.
  • Is removable so it is easy to clean.
OPTIONAL Dining Topper
  • Looks like a normal dining room or kitchen table.
  • Easy for one person to take off and put on.
  • Rubber feet on the underside to prevent it from sliding around.
  • Tongue and groove with a rubber gasket protecting the playing surface from spills.
  • Cup holders are removable
  • Stainless steel insert is removable from the cup holder for easy cleaning
  • 2 attachment points on each end
  • 2 attachment points in the middle of each side
OPTIONAL Wine Glass Holder
  • Specialized wine glass holders with a little slot for the stem to slide through and a circle for the bowl to sit on.
  • Removable wine glass holders
  • 2 attachment points on each end
  • 2 attachment points in the middle of each side
OPTIONAL Play Surface
  • Polyester that does not absorb water
  • Rigid backside so it doesn't bunch
  • 6mm thick. Cushy so that it is easy to pick up cards and bits
  • Completely removable for cleaning or replacement
  • Many Duchess owners tell us they regret not purchasing one (or not purchasing a second one)
  • Sits inside the playing area to provide a flat surface for snacks, a laptop, or pencil and paper during a game
  • Sits outside the playing area to provide a flat surface for snacks, a laptop, or pencil and paper during a game.
  • This shelf will extend your gaming by attaching to the long tongue-and-groove attachment point under the arm rest in the middle of the long side of the table
  • Seat is removable if you want to add your own upholstery
  • Curved back for lumbar support\- Classy high back to look sharp in your dining room
THE JASPER Color Options

A sleek timeless design that doesn't scream "look at me!", but patiently waits for you to discover its beauty, in your time, while eating dinner or playing a game.

  • A brownish-black, dark walnut color. It is brown enough to match other brown wood in your home, and black enough to be a neutral color that is able to fit in with any decor.
  • A light, natural color. This is the true color of the wood without any stain. It shows off the wood's character and natural beauty.
  • If you have more particular needs, you can request your table be unstained and unfinished. Then you can stain or paint it whatever color you want.
  • The table comes with a gray play surface which, again, compliments any room. We have a couple of stretch goals to add a navy blue. And you might be able to talk us into adding another stretch goal for a cream or brown color.

Its 3' x 5' playing area hits the sweet spot for board games. Six people fit very comfortably. Any game except the biggest monsters fit. But you don't have to strain to reach across it.


The Jasper is a budget conscious table, but that doesn't mean cheaply built. You won't find any particle board or MDF in your Jasper. It's made from solid wood. Malaysian Oak (also known as Rubberwood or Hevea Brasiliensis). It is a wood that has similar hardness characteristics as North American hardwoods, but is less expensive.

But using solid materials doesn't automatically mean a solid table. That's why we are making The Jasper in the USA (in Jasper, MO). This gives us the tightest possible quality assurance process, and a quick turn around time if problems need to be fixed. Production will be overseen by the same woodworkers who make our high end custom tables.

A chief goal of The Jasper is that it would be both easy to assemble and foolproof to assemble.

Easy to assemble means that you don't have to push, beat on things, or stretch too far. It means that the table holds itself together for you as you go. We added extra screws that aren't really needed structurally, but they help you hold things in place during assembly.

Foolproof assembly means that it is almost impossible to assemble it wrong. Similarly sized screws are color coded. Boards naturally fit in obvious places. Things that need to be tight are naturally tightened correctly

The only tools you will need are your own Phillips head screwdriver and an Allen wrench we provide.

Here's a cell phone video of me showing how it works and showing the weight they can bear.
I made a cell phone video where I show you both sides of the play surface, how it lays, and how it tucks into the edge of the table.
This video shows exactly how the rubber nubs hold the topper in place and how the tongue and groove and gasket all fit together.
