Thousands in customer deposits stuck in limboFounded in 2008, Geek Chic made a splash at gaming conventions like Gen Con and PAX by catering to a new breed of well-heeled tabletop hobbyists. Even with high-end 4k Gaming Consoles now available, the fantastic surge in tabletop gaming gave rise to companies like Geek Chic, but sadly after almost a decade of supplying custom build gaming tables to thousands of customers, they have closed up shop suddenly leaving thousands of unhappy customers wondering what to do about their lost order money, and no table to game on.
Geek Chic’s top-of-the-line Vizier could easily run in excess of $6,000 with upgrades. CEO Gifford told investors on Shark Tank that his company earned around $1,800 in profit for each table they made.
At least there is a few other companies left, but really the best solution is to go out into your workshop and build your own, it might be hard work, and cost some money for the proper tools, but in the end you will be pleased with yourself and there is lots of plans on the internet you can download and study to get your own ideas on how to build a nice custom gaming table for yourself and your buddies.
