So I have been considering building a custom game table with one of the large printed maps like IL’s Supreme map. Â I saw a video on Youtube (I can’t post links - search “Board game table TV”) and had an idea… could possibly be a terrible idea, but I wanted to know if anyone has considered this or not?
That table has an insert for a TV for playing DD. Â I was recently shopping for TV’s and was shocked at how cheap they were compared to a few years ago. Â A 55" 4K UHD TV was running aroun $400 and I figure a lower name brand could be had for around $300. Â I wondered if the table could be built around a 4K UHD TV and then the high res map be loaded into the TV to play. Â The advantage would be you could change maps fairly easily and you could also change it for maps from other games as well. Â So for basically a similar price to printing one large scale map at $300 you could have unlimited map options.
I thought of possible burn in but Â possible solution would be to somehow have the map image change slightly like a light wave or every five minutes have it change for ten seconds.
Is this a ridiculous idea or would something like this be possible?
