Table Talk: 3 Different Types of Home Game Poker Tables

Written By: George Chao

In this article, we’re going to talk about the different types of poker tables for home games. Having put tens of thousands of poker tables in home games across the world, we see that there’s three distinct categories for home game poker tables.

Folding Leg Poker Tables


Maybe you’re just starting your game and you’re growing your home game. Home game hosts generally start with a more versatile poker table. Generally, with a folding leg. The beauty of folding leg portable poker tables is that you can stash them away in a garage or a separate bedroom. And when you’re going to throw the game you pull it out, you put some chairs around it, you fold the legs, and instantly you have a great poker table for your game.

Permanent Premium Poker Tables


As hosts graduate from the folding leg poker table, they generally then will start looking for a permanent fixture premium poker table. Generally, something that has nice wood pedestal legs. Then at this permanent premium level you can start getting into customizations, which gets really cool. You can specify things like the different materials for your armrests. You can talk about graphics on your layout. You can even start powering up your table with USB chargers, with LED lights, or cool things like auto shufflers. It gets really tricky and really fun.

However, the downside of having the permanent premium poker table is that it does require a permanent space; So, you’re going to have to clear out either a game room for a poker room, or basement or something because you’re going to be proud, and you want to show your table off. So that’s certainly a consideration for a premium high-end permanent poker table.

Hybrid Poker Tables


In recent years, a third category has emerged, which sort of blends the best of both worlds; It’s a dining poker table, and what I mean by dining poker table is that it is the same as a premium permanent poker table, but it comes with a matching dining top that goes over the poker table. And with that dining top on, it’s completely incognito. It looks like a dining table, so then you can situate it in a dining room. Maybe even a family room. Something like that so you don’t have to dedicate a dedicated space for your poker table, which works great. You just take the top off and play, and when you’re done you put the dining top back on and you go about your business. Of course, there are also smaller models of poker tables that don’t take up as much space to begin with, as well.

So, generally, there you have it. That’s the three different categories of poker tables that we generally see for home game posts.
