X-wing table

This week my wife got a gift from a friend as a thanks for some family portraiture.

That gift will make the best X-wing table, even though that is not its intended use.  (I hasten to add that my wife's friend works for PB, so did not pay full price!)

As you can see the silk screen process is nearly perfect, and the scale of the death star is good as well.  The picture is very close to 3x3 feet (dimensions given on the website are for the mailing box).  Unlike many canvas prints, the interior is solid, presumably to support the LEDs and wiring.

The only disappointing aspect of this picture is that it has stopped blinking, but one can certainly live with that as a game table.

On a related note, I was finally able to play (well, games master) a session of X-wing, and aside from R2-D2 keeping Luke alive indefinitely vs. "Dark Curse", it was great fun.
