I’m not sure what ever happened to that, but I’m sure it is a treasured heirloom.

Almost as treasured as something like this: the Sultan gaming table. An actual, honest to goodness piece of furniture beautifully crafted for gamers. Each player has their own “station”, with the game master getting the deluxe treatment. There are dedicated areas for rolling dice, a multi-layer map surface, panels to cover over the game in progress and turn the thing into a massive “multi-purpose” table- it even has cup holders! Mind you, for nearly $10,000, I guess it should have cup holders.   If I were still gaming for half a dozen hours every weekend the way we did back when I was between 15 and 25, I could almost see buying this.
