What to Consider When Purchasing a Retro Gaming Table?
When purchasing a retro gaming table, there are several factors to consider to ensure you choose the right one for your needs. Firstly, the size of the table is an important consideration. You will want to ensure that the table fits comfortably in your game room or office and provides ample space for gaming.
At Bitcade we have two size arcade tables. The larger Cocktail arcade table and the smaller coffee arcade table, the only differentials are the height. We also offer a unique 3-sided cocktail table that allows a vertical and horizontal gaming experience, this can be made in coffee size by request.
Another important factor to consider is the type of games the table can accommodate. Some retro gaming tables come with pre-installed games, while others require you to supply your own games. You will also want to consider the quality of the graphics and sound, as well as the overall build quality of the table.

Buy Vs Build?
DIY arcade tables are a great way to enter the world of retro gaming but need a lot of time, resources and knowledge to build to a great standard. The quickest way to enter is to buy straight from a reputable arcade manufacturer. At Bitcade we sell thousands of arcade machines a year and have perfected the craft, so a plug-and-play arcade table from us could be a great way to take the stress of building and accelerate the joy of playing. Built-in Bristol to the highest standard another benefit of buying over building a machine is a 12-month warranty that can be extended to 3 years at the time of purchase.
Next, up is durability and safety.
The material the top is made from is very important, in a commercial or an environment where the table is going to be used a lot a 4mm toughened glass is a worthy consideration over standard polycarbonate/plastic tops. This will ensure a longer life, withstand more use and be better protected. Another really important consideration for safety is ensuring when purchasing an arcade machine from a manufacturer is ensuring they have CE-marked, RoHS-compliant documentation as this is a legal requirement in the UK to ensure safety.
Now the fun part: getting the most out of your arcade table:
- Invite friends over for arcade gaming nights.
- Host retro arcade game tournaments.
