You may be asking yourself, what is a board gaming table?
So, what is a board gaming table? A board gaming table is a multi-use table that provides the perfect playing area made exactly for your gaming needs.
There are so many types, shapes, and sizes available with varying vault depths, colors, and accessories. Some will clash with your current home decor, while others will blend in beautifully. You can choose from many different colors and styles to suit your home decor.
Depending on the number of people who will be playing with you, a smaller, two-person table may fit in nicely with classic furnishings, while an eight-person table might be too much.

The Story Behind Nilo
How it started
As many companies are . . . it all started out of my garage in 1992. My wife and I didn’t find a suitable multi-use table for our two children, 2 and 4 years of age. So the wife says, “why don’t you make us a table, honey?” I did. Bingo, the first Nilo® table was born. Shortly after its arrival, our friends started flocking over to our house to see this “table” in action. They couldn’t believe it. . . our kids and theirs were playing quietly around this multi-functional table. They watched as the children played in total peace and how our house stayed in order. WOW!
Risk & Reward
More friends, local day care centers and teachers suddenly started calling upon me to buy our tables. Shortly after, I quit my real estate and finance career of 13 years and started Nilo Toys. Having obtained many orders for the 4th quarter of 1994, I ran out and bought machinery, leased industrial space and quickly ran into debt for the next few years, as is typical. We put everything on the line because we believed in what we had to offer.
The Right Choice!
We made the right decision. Our tables were offered in many of the best catalogs and specialty toy stores in the world and continue to be. We continue to develop new product that meets our high standards and requirements of “Quality, Versatility and Value™”, products that hopefully exceed your expectations.
We know that our products are the best that money can buy. With nearly 30 years of experience designing, building and manufacturing play tables and accessories I am proud to announce our NEWEST table on the market, the Nilo Gamer Table. This adult gaming table is just as high quality as our other childrens play tables that are proven to last generations; just take a look at our reviews! We also decided to add the Nilo Master Table to this project, which is a 3′ x 5′ board gaming table with a fully adjustable vault. The Master Table vault depth can be adjusted in one-inch increments from 1″ recessed to 4″ recessed, which gives you 4 different depth settings!

We’ve now taken the time to come up with the most affordable game table on the market so that everyone can afford one.

Quality Board Gaming Tables
The Nilo Gamer Table is constructed of solid hardwood with puzzle-fit corners, which is both beautiful and meant to last for generations.
The tabletop surface slides into a dado groove, which improves strength and rigidity while also keeping drinks and other liquids from spilling off of the table and onto the ground or carpet.
The Nilo Master Table is also constructed of solid hardwood with a 6 1/4″ frame for increased strength and is meant to be long-lasting.
Watch the video below to see Nile, the creator & founder of the Nilo Gamer Table, hands-on during the design process!
These board gaming tables are truly multi-use. That is to say, the recessed tabletop surface, felt table topper and additional accessories make these tables meant for all types of tabletop activities.
To your advantage, the Nilo Gamer Table also fits our Nilo double-sided baseplates that are compatible with Lego/Duplo. Additionally, our graphic mats fit snug on the recessed tabletop surface, which makes our tables even more fun for your family & friends!
The Nilo Gamer Table & Nilo Master Table are low-budget gaming tables, however, with over 30 years of experience in the table business, we’ve managed to construct and design two top-quality gaming tables meant to last for generations at an extremely affordable price point.
Our main goal is to provide top-quality board gaming tables, board game tables, puzzle tables, dining tables, activity tables & accessories at an unbeatable price point so that everyone can afford one.
I designed the Nilo Gamer Table to be constructed of solid hardwood with a two-sided tabletop. This makes it a long-lasting table. In the case that you damage one side of the tabletop surface, you can flip the tabletop over and have a brand new surface.
In addition, designed the Nilo Master Table, a 3′ x 5′ top-quality board gaming table, to be long-lasting just like our other products which have proven to last generations.
Reusability and Recyclability
The primary packaging material we use is cardboard which can be compostable and recyclable.
All Nilo board gaming tables are made out of real wood which is biodegradable. We aim to make our products as environmentally friendly as possible to limit the waste being made.
Environmentally Friendly Factories

A board gaming table is a multi-use table that provides the perfect playing area made exactly for your gaming needs. There are many types, shapes, and sizes available with varying vault depths, colors, and accessories to suit your home decor and meet your gaming needs.
Gaming tables improve your overall gaming experience.
The vault keeps pieces such as dice on the tabletop and prevents pieces from falling off. Felt game mats help cards to slide nicely while also allowing you to pick up cards easier. Board gaming tables can save space by acting as both a dining table and a gaming table with the dining topper add-on. In addition, the dining topper can protect games or other tabletop activities to come back to later. Board gaming tables also offer perfect accessories for tabletop activities such as cup holders, card holders, dice holders & more.
Yes! With Nilo board gaming tables, you can utilize the Nilo dining topper to cover your game, puzzle or other activity. This not only saves space but also protects your tabletop activity from pets! The Nilo Gamer table features 1 1/4″ of vertical space underneath the dining topper while the Master table features up to 4″ of vertical space underneath the dining topper.
A table vault is a recessed area on a gaming table, which is meant for your board game or other tabletop activity items.
Hello, I am looking forward to receiving the Master Table ordered from the Kickstarter. I have built several custom trays, domino and card holders that we currently use in our game group. I was wondering if you would consider producing and selling the brackets for the cup-holders. It would be awesome to be able to attach those brackets to accessories I have built. I understand that it will take time to get into production if the company decides to move forward. I am willing to wait. Thank you.
