@fieldcommander The only issue with the larger map 5x10 are the reach ranges. So if leave some space around the edges for pieces and such you might have a hard time reaching the middle of the board, like the all important Mediterranean, especially if you have short arms like me!

Hi there, I’d like to show you my gaming table:
This is a beautifully designed table, and the wood-paneled room in which it’s located looks great too. And it’s a nice touch to have added those two monitors which, as far as I can tell, keep track of which territory is controlled by which power and the current status of the national objectives. Is that how those two charts get used during game play?
@fasthard yea very nice. Like the padded edges and the sword hanging on the wall.
One question, where are the beer holders ? heh heh just kiddin. Looks great and sure it was fun to build as well.
Yes, the monitors help tracking the income during the game. My group and I always forgot to adjust the IPC table at any time during the game, that sucked. Therefore I did this Excel table. Works quite fine now. If anybody is interessted let me know, I’d like to share it.
The beer holders are on each side of the table. I don’t like cupholders, because there is only space for one drink The dagger helps if someone does not want a drink or to declare war to other nations.
@fasthard sweet Reminds of me playing horseshoes where we’d have a beer on each end lol
Got some facelift for my gaming table:
In addition there’s a steel panel below the map, needed for the new created flight stands and other magnetic stuff:

Jan and I almost finished our warroom.
We would like to share some pictures with you.
The map on the table has the same size as the 1936 middle map.
The Map on the picture does also have the Captains ‘‘house rule expansion’’ in it. (addition to the game)
For every Axis and Allies lover, who would like to add some more variety of units and tactics.
It’s very easy to learn and to add, to your regular game, the 1940 global version.
Just take a quick look, and decide for yourself.
On the wall we have two dice towers, which can be taken off smoothly.
(I made those myself, they are very quiet and easy to use. I also sell them, if you are interested).
We also use a magnetic board on the wall to keep up during the game. (there is a poster in the making for the board with a large ipc tracker.)
Let me know what you think of our game board, and if something is missing just leave a reply in the comments.
