Regular Assembly GuideLong Assembly Guide INTRODUCING The Jasper

You could write the next great novel on your phone, but you'll type faster on a laptop. Things go smoother when you have the right tool for the job. And a board game table is the perfect tool for playing board games.

With the Jasper, you have two great length options to fit your needs. The Jasper Regular board game table has a 3' x 5' playing area that seats six people. The new Jasper Long table is longer and can fit 8 people around the play area, with a playing area dimension of 3' x 6.4'. The new Jasper Mini table is smaller and can fit 4 people around the play area, with a playing area dimension of 3' x 3.3'. All of our Jasper tables are made in the USA.


The biggest difference between a "normal" table and a board game table is the recessed playing arena. There are 3" wide armrests around the perimeter of the table, and you play games in an arena.

This border:

  • Keeps bits from falling off the table.
  • Lets you power roll your dice - they just bounce off the sides.
  • Gives you a comfortable place to rest your arms and keeps them up out of the way so everyone can see player tableaus.

PADDED SURFACE Comfortable for Gaming

(Video) Taking the Plunge - TCbH's Jasper Board Game Table Review

The Jasper Regular, Long, and Mini tables offer the same premium play surface as our standalone playmats. The vibrant blue color that never distracts from the game, extra thick 5mm padding provides wonderful tactility, and a super soft water-resistant neoprene with a speed cloth top keeps the gameplay going all night long. Once you've enjoyed a game on this surface, there's no going back.

The play surface:

  • Is cushioned so you can get your fingers under the cards and bits to pick them up easily.
  • Tucks into a groove on the inside of the armrest so there is absolutely no gap around the edge.
  • Is removable so it is easy to clean.


Want all the benefits of the Jasper Standard, but maybe just a little bit more?

The Jasper Long offers an extended length table that is 17 inches longer. So whether you’re looking for more room at the table to sit 2 more people, or just want more space for the ever increasing footprint of large board game setups, this will surely do the trick.

The topper that pairs with this table will have five pieces, ensuring that each individual piece is easy to pick and manage.

DETAIL ORIENTED Quality Craftsmanship

The Jasper is a budget conscious table, but that doesn't mean cheaply built. You won't find any particle board or MDF in your Jasper. It's made from solid wood. Malaysian Oak (also known as Rubberwood or Hevea Brasiliensis). It is a wood that has similar hardness characteristics as North American hardwoods, but is less expensive.

But using solid materials doesn't automatically mean a solid table. That's why we are making The Jasper in the USA (in Jasper, MO). This gives us the tightest possible quality assurance process, and a quick turn around time if problems need to be fixed. Production will be overseen by the same woodworkers who make our high end custom tables.

Just received our table (backer #401) in Southern California. No damage, felt was a perfect fit, and setup was just barely over a breezy hour. Great, clear instructions. Thanks, Chad and team! You can check out some pictures of our setup over at our Instagram — @thegametable Daniel Wahlen Received my table and built it this past weekend. All parts were undamaged, instructions from the website were clear, no problems with screws, alignment, fit of polyester. Table looks awesome. I'm not thrilled with the quality of the polyester surface(expected something heavier and softer) but hope that with some time and use it will flatten down and will work out great. Overall I am absolutely thrilled with the table quality, color, function and price! Joe Waller We got our table, topper, and 6 cupholders in dark walnut yesterday. It took maybe 45 minutes for my husband to build. The instructions at buildjasper.com were very helpful and clear. We had no missing parts and everything went together perfectly. The quality feels great and the table looks beautiful. Thanks to Chad and his team for making an affordable, quality table. Danielle Marsh

A chief goal of The Jasper is that it would be both easy to assemble and foolproof to assemble.

Easy to assemble means that you don't have to push, beat on things, or stretch too far. It means that the table holds itself together for you as you go. We added extra screws that aren't really needed structurally, but they help you hold things in place during assembly.

Foolproof assembly means that it is almost impossible to assemble it wrong. Similarly sized screws are color coded. Boards naturally fit in obvious places. Things that need to be tight are naturally tightened correctly

The only tools you will need are your own Phillips head screwdriver and an Allen wrench we provide.

Behind the Scenes at the Video Shoot for The Jasper Board Game Table


Here's a cell phone video of me showing how it works and showing the weight they can bear.

I made a cell phone video where I show you both sides of the play surface, how it lays, and how it tucks into the edge of the table.

This video shows exactly how the rubber nubs hold the topper in place and how the tongue and groove and gasket all fit together.
