Infinity Game Table Review: Classic Board Games Reborn

Arcade1Up has made a name for itself by producing an eclectic mix of affordable home arcade cabinets, but its latest product is quite a departure from the brand’s usual fare. It also might be Arcade1Up’s most impressive piece of hardware yet. With the Infinity Game Table, Arcade1Up has crafted a one-stop-shop for family game nights. Equipped with 30-plus digital board and card games, including staples like Monopoly, Scrabble, and Battleship, the Infinity Game Table offers a great variety of titles that can be enjoyed by board game enthusiasts of all ages. Digital board games are nothing new, of course, but the Infinity Game Table doesn’t merely offer simple ports; Arcade1Up has adapted them to feel as if they were meant to be played on the table’s HD touchscreen screen. Essentially, the Infinity Game Table is the coolest coffee table around, and it seems to have boundless potential thanks to an expanding library.

A library of classics

The Infinity Game Table, of course, would be nothing without a solid library of games. At launch, Arcade1Up is focusing on a stable of classics, many of which are under the Hasbro umbrella. Standout titles with huge name recognition include:

  • Monopoly
  • Scrabble
  • Candy Land
  • Chutes and Ladders
  • Sorry
  • Trivial Pursuit
  • Yahtzee
  • Battleship
  • Connect Four
  • Operation
  • Hungry Hungry Hippos
  • Simon

None of these games are simple ports, though. All of them utilize the touchscreen display and features like haptic feedback to great success, immersing you in the unique experience of playing a digital board game on the Infinity Game Table. Each game has music and theme-appropriate sound effects, but what’s most impressive is how Arcade1Up altered and added to each game to bring it to life in a way that makes them feel like more than digital copycats.
