Is there a type of table that can be arranged for both 2-person games, like chess and then re-arranged for a round-table game like Dungeons & Dragons?

I have looked at trapezoidal tables. They do ok when two are placed together for roundtable, but they do not work efficiently in 2-player mode.

    What's wrong with a normal rectangular table? Sit across from each other for chess, sit round the table with the DM at the head for D&D.

Have you considered rhombus tables? One alone is excellent for two people.

If you then require a greater amount of tablespace for four people or need to fit six-plus people at a round table, three rhombuses together make a hexagon.

The hexagon can then be extended by adding two more tables to two adjacent sides, allowing larger and larger subtables to be added, or crescents around a central game manager or leader to be formed.

    What do you mean by a "rhombus table"? A rhombus shape is a diamond. If you are talking about trapezoidal tables I already addressed that in my question. Mar 25, 2017 at 13:55
  • I think rhombus (or diamond) is what was meant. Three rhombuses can make a hexagon: lh5.ggpht.com/-mDQhY6b_kgg/T_HoofXaoRI/AAAAAAAAIQE/yWEKPJ8PZe0/…

  • Also here's how to extend with two more rhombuses: st.depositphotos.com/1002927/4077/v/950/…

  • @TylerDurden If you really want to get into semantics, a diamond is a certain type of pentagon that looks like a cross-section of the gem. The rhombus is what most people mistakenly call a diamond.

  • Where do you buy rhombus tables? Also not just any rhombus will do, it has to have a 30 degree acute angle, right? Also, does a rhombus make a good 2 player table?
