Arcade1Up Infinity Game Table Smashes Kickstarter Goal, Features Dozens Of Games
The table comes with games from companies like Hasbro and Parker Brothers, as well as coloring books and puzzles.
Arcade1Up first tackled home arcade cabinets before revealing its upcoming virtual pinball machines, and now it's entering the world of board games, comic books, and more with the Infinity Game Table. The table allows you to play virtual versions of classic board games including Monopoly, Scrabble, and Operation, and its Kickstarter campaign has begun. In fact, it more than doubled its goal in under an hour.
The Infinity Game Table comes with a sizeable lineup of built-in games, many of which are licensed board games from the likes of Hasbro and Parker Brothers. The full list of free installed games is below:
- Chutes and Ladders
- Connect 4
- Hungry Hungry Hippos
- Trivial Pursuit
- Game of Life
- Chess Classic
- Wizards Chess
- Checkers Classic
- Tic Tac Toe
- Texas Hold 'Em
- Bowling Mancala
In addition to these games, Kickstarter backers will also receive Ticket to Ride and Pandemic. There will be free comic book access through a Comic Plus account, as well as 500 free coloring books and 300 free puzzles available at launch. The campaign launched a $500,000 stretch goal for Guess Who that was quickly met, as well. At this pace, it could earn millions of dollars by the time it's over.
The Infinity Game Table will be available in 24-inch and 32-inch versions, which cost $499 and $699 during the Kickstarter period, and it supports online play for many of the games listed above. Up to six players can connect to play online, and for traveling players, there will be a $79 battery that can power the device for between three and five hours.
Arcade1Up has faced more competition in the home arcade space recently, with AtGames continuing to release new products and newcomers like the iiRcade and the SNK MVSX also planned for release in November.
