My perfect gaming environment is a big table with enough room for everyone to fit around it, big enough that everyone has plenty of room for character sheets, dice, drinks, etc., but small enough that no one has to strain to hear and it is easy to pass tokens or dice or share aspect cards or see what is written in the middle of the table. No distractions around (no TV in the next room, etc.), and not too noisy (sorry—convention gaming is about the least-ideal). Not something I’ve had for a few years, but I’ve tried enough different options to know that that is what works best for me. Add in easily controlled lighting, easy access to a sound system, and a whiteboard where everyone can see it without straining their neck, and I’ve got gaming Nirvana.
