Arcade1Up, which has been creating some of the most affordable and fun versions of classic arcade cabinets, recently raised over $1 million on Kickstarter for their Infinity Game Table. While the over 1,400 backers will be receiving their tables soon, the rest of us can sign up to be notified when the Infinity Game Table becomes available on Arcade1Up’s website. But what does the Infinity Game Table offer players? It definitely has plenty of options to keep you busy during the pandemic and for those rainy days!
The Ultimate Board Game Experience
The Infinity Game Table saves you a lot of space by collecting a treasure trove of board games in its system. Some board games highlighted by Arcade1Up include Hasbro’s Monopoly, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, and Candy Land. Other highlights include Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, and Solitaire. Players can also take each other own in a variety of other card games, including blackjack, rummy, and texas hold’em.
In addition to these popular board and card games, the Infinity Game Table also has jigsaw puzzles, coloring books, mini-games, and some yet-to-be-announced indie and licensed games to add to the mix. Plus, comic book fans can enjoy over 20,000 by using Comics Plus.
Dimensions and Other Features
The table itself comes in two sizes, 24” and 32”, with an HD Touchscreen. It’s easy to store thanks to the legs being removable. Players will have access to Wi-Fi, enabling them to play online with friends and connect with others using Social Play+, which allows up to six players to game at once. Games can also be downloaded through the App Store, which includes some free Hasbro Games.
Arcade 1Up pointed out many problems with traditional board games that can be avoided thanks to the Infinity Game Table. Players no longer have to worry about losing parts of the game, keeping track of the score, or running out of storage space. Users of the Infinity Game Table can more easily follow the rules of the games while enjoying music and sound effects.
With the Wi-Fi connection and App Store, the future possibilities for the Infinity Game Table really do seem infinite. It could also serve as a great way to bring indie games you’ve never heard of or never would have given a shot the chance to be in the spotlight. Though considering you’ll need to shell out more for some games in the play store as well as additional skins, this could quickly add up to be a very costly endeavor.
