December is officially here and the month of entertaining & holiday gatherings begin along with (for some of you) a time for staying indoors. As the holiday guests linger or you are stuck inside, why not invest in a game table. Whether it is one equipped with the board game or one for pulling out the old game box – these tables are all an investment but ones to keep for generations of holiday entertaining and traditions. So let the games begin!
