Grand enough to sate the appetite for fantasy and adventure. Grand enough to field the dreams of visionaries. Grand enough for the stories, the battles, the heroes and empires that live and die on its surface.
It's not for your room, it's not for your friends, it's for your games.
The Sultan is a dedicated gaming table.
More specifically, to all of you saying, "I can't imagine that in my kitchen"— you're right. You wouldn't park a Bentley in the kitchen. This is by no means the sort of table you'd want for everyday dining. Those seeking a table for family dinner should investigate The Emissary or The Minimalist. For something right in the middle of the gaming/dining divide, try The Vizier.
Let the Sultan do what it does best: be the grand centerpiece for your gaming lifestyle.

Choice of 2 sizes
Choice of wood
Game Vault System
Hardwood Leaves (length-wise)
Vault depth: 3 7/8"

CHOOSING YOUR SIZE
Open the SULTAN PRICING GUIDE and on the first page you will see 5 configurations and their associated cost. The cost of the included features is based on the size and configuration you choose.
Sultans have 2 Game Vault sizes: 4' x 6' or 4' x 7' 6". Anything less is not a Sultan.
Your Valet will assist you with making sure you get the size the will fit your space, group size and most importantly your games!
Geek Chic furniture is all hand-crafted from strong, straight-grained hardwoods, sourced from certified sustainable forests.
To help you choose, your Valet will send you a packet of wood samples for you to peruse in the natural light of your intended space.
These woods are included in pricing:
CHERRY MAPLE SAPELE

GEEK KNOWLEDGE: Stain? Not if we can help it!
FAS grade lumber is the top industry standard grade of lumber used for high-end furniture. Being the wood geeks we are, we have a created a specialty "Geek Chic grade" of even higher quality lumber that does not need to be stained. (Although you may add-on stain should you choose.) All the images you see on this website are not stained unless specifically stated. You are seeing the quality of our lumber with a clear conversion varnish sealant-- no stain is covering up inferior grades of wood!
Conversion varnish is the clear finish most commonly used in the high-end furniture market. This unsung hero of the finish world is extremely durable, and rated for heavy use. Its a little tricky to apply, but it is worth it. Unlike lacquers and polyurethanes, conversion varnish is completely water-resistant, so you needn’t worry about water, wine or hot beverage stains!
Conversion varnish is also a dream to clean-just use mild soap and water and a non-abrasive cloth. Gamer-proof!
GEEK KNOWLEDGE: Household Chemicals Tests show that conversion varnish has no visual effect from Household Ammonia, Vinegar, Lemon Juice, 50% Ethyl Alcohol, Red Ink, Oil Base Paint, Latex Emulsion Paint, VM&P Naphtha, Turpentine, Orange Crayon, Carbon Tetrachloride, 10% Sodium Carbonate Solution, Water, or Grease--Conversion varnish is a superior coating to any brand of varnish, lacquer, or polyurethane!
The Game Vault is where your games and maps are kept safe, flat, and spill/cat/people-resistant. Keep your game safe and in progress with this deceptively simple and infinitely useful system of layers.
The Sultan's game vault is a special depth of 3 7/8", as opposed to the standard 2 1/4".
A set of hardwood leaves (lid), the transparent layer (with suction cup to lift it) and a white vault floor are included. The remaining layers are game specific add-ons.
For more information on these alternate layers look at the Leaves and Lids & Insets pages of the SULTAN PRICING GUIDE.
FLIP-DOWN PLAYER STATIONS
Sultan player stations each include a flip-down desk, the rail system, and secret drawers. A GM's station is larger and more involved, and includes extra storage.
We love filling the interior spaces created in our furniture with extra storage drawers. Like doors to another dimension, they seem to be bigger on the inside than they should be.
INTEGRATED DICE TOWERS
Built in dice randomizers can be added onto any side of the Sultan-- either in between player stations or (for those tables with a GM's station) in lieu of the GM's storage shelf.
Think of the Rail System as Geek Chic's utility belt for your table. Light weight rail accessories attach anywhere along the Rail Groove in your table. This system allows for the ultimate in quickly reconfiguring to suit your game.
