The Table That Was Foretold – Wyrmwood Gaming Unveils Prophecy

 

It’s nicely documented that I adore Wyrmwood Gaming. Not handiest do they craft some of gorgeous wooden gaming accessories to be had, they do so on agenda, and with a number of the best customer support I’ve ever encountered in a business enterprize. They’re honestly excellent humans who have a good grasp of the market and what they could realistically accomplish.

Which is why their present day endeavor has me excited and worried at the same time. Unveiled today at Gen Con, Wyrmwood Gaming has started out taking pre-orders for the Prophecy gaming table. An 88″ x 52″ x 33″ heirloom-first-rate desk, crafted from one of Wyrmwood’s middle sixteen kinds of wood and completed evidently with oil and wax. It capabilities a magnetic rail across the perimeter of the table (each outdoors and interior) and a double-sided hardwood/suede gaming surface that both sits flush with the desk or may be lowered 3″ thru an inner mechanical carry.

The joinery and craftsmanship are what you will expect from grasp furnishings makers Doug and Ian Costello (who created custom furnishings earlier than founding Wyrmwood Gaming with Ed Maranville returned in 2012). And that’s the biggest focus. The Prophecy is a beautiful table before it’s whatever else. But can the company bridge the transition from “maker of lovely gaming accessories” to “maker of stunning gaming furniture?”

What Makes Prophecy Good for Gaming?

So what about the bits and portions of the Prophecy that make it a “gaming table?” As I referred to, the gaming floor is two-sided, allowing you to play both on hardwood or suede. You can also purchase gridded battle mat or clear acrylic overlays for the surface which are dry-erase friendly.

The lift mechanism is elective; however, lets you to drop the gaming floor with the aid of up to a few″ the use of a unique crank. Of route, after you opt for the raising mechanism, you’ll want to get a topper as nicely to preserve your video games secure.

An elective topper in matching wood (or a unique wood if you’d like) creates a gasket-sealed, spill-resistant chamber under the table’s surface. You can also pick out up a matching Game Master’s shelf so as to fit over one end of the desk and can help you gather your Game Master Screen gadget (i.E. Fortress of Ultimate Nerdery).

Additionally, you may pick up cup holders and thing holders that paintings with the magnetic rail gadget. They’re nice if not a piece fundamental. I’ll be very curious to look what extra components are made to be had once the Prophecy takes off.

How Much Does a Wood Table Cost If a Wood Table is Made of Wood?

Each desk will come fully assembled (unless you request bolt-on legs to lessen the transport charges) and will be shipped thru white-glove shipping (a hefty $500 to $1,200 charge, which continues to be being finalized).

 

While we speak me numbers, let’s get this out of the manner – the Prophecy gaming table is Wyrmwood’s maximum expensive product so far. For a base table in Red Oak, the value is $5,000. Fancier woods, of direction, fee greater, starting from $5, four hundred to $13,2 hundred to the wallet-puckering “Contact Us.” The base table is appropriate and gets you the magnetic rail, but that’s it. There’s no raise mechanism (that’s an extra $1,000), no accessories, no topper. If you have been to create a “base stage” table with all of the add-ons it might appear something like this:

Gaming

Red Oak Table – $five,000
Lift mechanism – $1,000
Topper – $1,000
Master Shelf – $a hundred and fifty
Battlemat Overlay – $250
Component Trays (4) – $a hundred and twenty ($30 every)
Cup Holders (four) – $one hundred eighty ($forty-five every)
Shipping – $500 (minimum)
For the least highly-priced wood choice, that puts the total at $8,2 hundred. Now, what if you selected the most highly-priced listed alternatives in Purpleheart?

Purpleheart Table – $13,200
Lift Mechanism – $1,000
Topper – $2,800
Master Shelf – $400
Battlemat Overlay – $250
Component Trays (4) – $400 ($one hundred each)
Cup Holders (4) – $480 ($a hundred and twenty every)
Shipping – $500 (minimal)
That’s a grand general of $19,030!

As you may see, selecting a greater uncommon timber affects the rate of all components and increases the grand general exponentially. Either way, it’s a hefty fee to pay for a chunk of furniture, even one as first-rate because of the Prophecy.

 

That’s why Wyrmwood is imparting a couple of various payment techniques. One choice, and the option that gets you your desk quicker is Milestone Payment, where you pay 1/2 the whole cost up to the front, with the opposite half due upon delivery (a yr from preliminary price). You can also choose to pay $1,000 down on your new table with the Experience Pre-Payment plan, after which pay 24 same monthly payments at the remainder (around $300 in my tricked-out Red Oak example). The capture is that Wyrmwood doesn’t begin building your table until they receive 12 payments and will best deliver the table after they acquire the final charge a year after that. So it’s easier to price range; but you’ve were given to be very, very affected person.

If you’re quick, you can get one of the first 12 tables to be shipped out subsequent March (however simplest in case you use their 2-payment choice). Once those spots are taken, Wyrmwood Gaming will take pre-orders for further 30 tables for “Milestone Payment” customers, to be shipped in September of 2018.
