Ariana lives in NYC but grew up in FL. She loves comedy, strong coffee, and impromptu performances by the mariachi bands on the subway.

As the days grow shorter and the weather colder, it’s the perfect time to make some hot apple cider and throw an epic game night.

Whether you’re looking to recreate a classic game show  like this one DIY-er who built her every own “Plinko” board from The Price Is Right  or you’d prefer to just whip up a snack and watch some football, these colder months provide a great opportunity to get folks together and have a fun time.

That’s why when I saw how one Imgur user brought his game night to the next level with an amazing DIY project, I was totally impressed. With a quick trip to the hardware store and a few spare hours, he was able to create the coolest board game table I’ve ever seen!

Scroll through to see this incredible DIY undertaking. It’s big enough to seat all of your friends. And with a luxe feel and finish, you’ll be transported to a Las Vegas casino, all in the comfort of your very own home.
