Driving the news: Tastemakers — best known for Arcade 1Up, its line of slimmed down versions of ’80s arcade games — is launching retail sales of the Infinity Game Table next month, following a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Are you a board game fan? Is your closet full of board game boxes that you pull out when friends come over? The Infinity Game Table hopes to condense all of those boxes into one sleek coffee table.
Designed to be just like the coffee-table you’d play board games or assemble jigsaw-puzzles on, the Infinity Game Table comes with a touchscreen display built into its surface that lets you play a multitude of board games from Monopoly to Yahtzee.
The Infinity is essentially table with an HD touchscreen for the tabletop. Developers Arcade1up have licensed a slew of popular classic boardgames–Scrabble, Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Battleship, etc., totaling more than 50 games–and programmed them all into the Infinity.
Update your board games for the tech age with the Arcade1Up Infinity Game Table. This gaming gadget lets you play your favorite board games on a large high-resolution touchscreen. This means there are no cards to shuffle or pieces to locate. Just join your family to start playing.
As fun as board games are, they can be a fiddly hobby, time consuming to set up, and expensive to keep buying the new ones. Arcade1Up’s Infinity Game Table, currently on Kickstarter, digitizes dozens of classic games like Monopoly and Scrabble into a touchscreen table.
The Infinity Game Table looks interesting to say the least. Where Arcade1Up has previously worked almost exclusively on recreations of arcade games and attractions from upright and cocktail mini arcades to digital pinball machines, the Infinity Game Table explores the tabletop gaming space.
Arcade1Up is beloved by gamers for its collection of three-quarter-size vintage arcade cabinets, but the company has turned to traditional board games with the Infinity Game Table.
One of the most fun things at CES this year was the Infinity Game Table, which digitizes some of the world’s most popular board games on a touchscreen table.
