Ratings & Reviews
I bought this as a gift for my board-game-loving husband and it was a big hit! It arrived very quickly and was nicely packaged. We did notice a slight odor like other reviewers mentioned, but nothing requiring "airing out". The mats (we got the largest size which has 2 pieces) laid flat straight from the packaging and we played a few games that night. The ability to flip it from one velvet-y side to the other "rubber-y" side for different games is great.
This is an excellent product to upgrade a regular table with a gaming table surface. The companion works great and comes exactly as i thought the surface would be. The color of the surface is slightly darker than the pictures led me to believe but it is still very nice.
I don't have an extra couple thousand dollars for a designated gaming table. These mats are a perfect low cost option. I'm very happy with the quality most of all. You can roll them up and store them in the shipping tube without ruining the shape. The felt surface is great for picking up cards and rolling dice quieter. I play board games multiple times per week and put these out on the dining room table every time.
My wife loves the fact that I have taught and play games with our about to be seven year old. She does not love that we play on her dining room table and its starting to show. I started researching gaming tables and it really wasn't an option. I had come across Tabletop Companion and after a few days of contemplating and a few emails to the company, I decided to order.
It has permanent play on the dining rom table saving it from any signs of us using it daily. It has also help my son and I by holding our boards in place and allowing us to pick up cards easier.
I am of the opinion that this is the next best thing to having a dedicated gaming table. I would like to thank Jessica for responding promptly to the emails and getting it to us in a timely manner.
I am looking forward to the first couples game night to hear what our friends think.
Thank you again.
I really appreciate the work put into this product and bring it to market. Overall the concept is great and I think I will use this for some games. I really like the look of the mats and the two sizes that work together or separate. There are some negatives which for the price of this product I was a bit disappointed though. 1. The offensive off-gassing of the rubber backing. The smell was so strong that when I opened it I almost returned it immediately. It was strong smells it was giving me a headache. Strong smells from plastics and rubber are generally a sign of lower quality products and could be toxic. Cheaper isn’t better for something like this. it should be premium quality. I did contact your company and was given advice to air it out. After more than a week airing out in the garage a day outside in the sun the smell is bearable in my game area but I still smell it. There was no mention on the site about the smell so I was a bit shocked. I consider this to be a boutique high end niche product and it shouldn’t smell. In fact it should smell good. That would really enhance the user experience of opening it up and getting out the mat. 2. The felt grippy surface has quickly been attracting lots of bits of lint and dust and is difficult to clean even with a lint roller. A version with a smooth mouse pad like surface or some other easy to clean surface would be great. GameMatz does some mats like this but doesn't seem to carry any in flat and tasteful colors. 3. More sizes and colors and surfaces would be the next way to go I would think. Overall a good product (once it's aired out) with lots of potential. I look forward to see what your next products are.
I received my Tabletop Companion - Complete Edition a little over two weeks ago. I use it fairly frequently. The quality is top-notch and it really helps me protect pieces from getting scratched (especially the resource cubes from Terraforming Mars - those get nicked up fast). Being able to use the small one and add on the larger one is really helpful. I use the smaller one far more than I thought I would, especially when travelling with games and playing on tables that just are not that large. I definitely have been telling my friends about where to buy one. One nice thing would be having color selection on the felt down the road. Maybe a royal blue and a forest green.
This was a gift for our board-game-loving children and grandchildren. They had recently bought a beautiful new diming table where they often play games. We wanted to give them a perfect gaming sirface that also served to protect the table's finish. Tabletop Companion was the answer.
We did not realize how much we needed this until we got it. No more are we struggling to pick cards off the table, no more are components sliding all over the place. Dice rolls are satisfying, tableau building is nice and neat. We couldn't justify buying a whole gaming table, but with this, we easily transform our dining table into a solid gaming surface. Can't rate this high enough!
I nearly purchased a Table Topper when it was on Kick Starter and I'm glad I didn't. This fits my needs at 1/16th the cost. Fits my table perfectly, cards are easy to pick up and dice roll smoothly on the mat. Shipping was fast and the hand written note from Jessica was a nice touch. Thanks for the great product.
Having been through other mats, I can say that this is, by a long-shot, the nicest one I've used. Highly professional in both quality and construction. The mat makes it easy to pick up cards, but is thin enough not to feel cheap and spongy. The deep burgundy is very classy, and it rolls and stores easily. I'd recommend this mat to gamers of all types.
The Tabletop Companion was a great gift for our family of board game fans. The two mats in the complete set are generously sized, extremely well made, and provide both excellent playing surfaces as well as protection for fine furniture. Customer service was terrific!
Superb quality, perfect size, great color, just the right thickness, super grippy rubber backing... I can't say enough great things about my Tabletop Companion. These are a must buy for anyone who plays tabletop games! Be sure to get the complete set!
The Tabletop Companion is literally a game changing accessory for those of us without the budget or space needed for dedicated gaming tables.
The rubber side is ideal for keeping gaming tiles from shifting during play, while the felt side gives a premium feeling surface for card based games. Both surfaces make items MUCH easier to pick up from the table top (I was tired of bending and scratching cards during games).
Dice rolls also sound satisfying without the noise of rolling on a bare table top.
Tabletop Companion is my favorite board gaming accessory.
Overall we really like the mats (got the 2 pack). I like the versatility of the set of two, together they cover our whole table or if we're playing smaller games we have two sizes to choose from. They are felt so if you have pets with lots of hair, make sure you pick up the mats when you aren't playing. Also make sure you give them time to air out when you first get them. Again, overall happy with this purchase!
I love the Tabletop Companion. I have the complete set and they work great on my glass top table. It makes picking up cards and components a breeze. Rolling dice still have a satisfying bounce (but not too much). And it looks great under any game. The rubber side is great for tile games or games where you want your bits to stay in place.
Seriously, the difference between before and after getting this mat is night and day. I wanted to protect my 6'x3' dining room wooden table, and regular cloths didn't cut it. Everything slided or moved, and wrinkles were a total annoyance. But when I finally got the companion, I not only got rid of all those problems, but the actual experience of playing on top of this material was beyond comfortable. I got the complete set to cover my whole table, and the division between both mats is not even noticeable because they both stay in place. The color is also very elegant, so what are you waiting for???
These game mats are awesome! I play a bunch of games that have all sorts of small parts and pieces. The mat helps keep everything in place. Cards don't slip and in the picture attached this game has small pieces that players constantly reach for. Before the mat, these pieces and even the cards would slip and slide all over the place if you weren't picking them up carefully. Cards are especially easy to grab compared to the smooth surface of our kitchen table. We don't have to worry about that anymore. I bought both sizes and the picture attached shows the larger mat. The mat stays in place and allows my family to neatly organize all components of a game. Jessica also sent a complimentary lint roller and the tube the product was shipped in has the care instructions right on it so it can never be lost. Easy to store, easy to clean, easy to play: Look no further, these game mats are a must have!
