Back for another entry.
1) More games on board
Another batch of local games have arrived in past few weeks. I purchased two card games; Kuih-Muih cardgame which to my personal opinion its more like Sushi Go + card drafting, and Drama Pukul 7 cardgame which is a direct parody of Malaysian soap drama that always being televised at 7pm, hence the name.
Between both games we enjoyed playing Drama Pukul 7 more, as my wife delightfully scheming (which is a success) to dropped my HP & losing the game. (She's kept getting better at playing...ouch).
Anyway, I'll keep increasing my collection stash for her to play more (my excuse on buying more games hehehe).
2) Reworked on the gaming table
As I have bit extra time, I decided to spruced up my gaming table a bit by adding table legs. Initially the plan is to have the portable gaming table to be set up on another table, but as the dining table is usually occupied I came to that decision.
56 inch x 3 inch x 12mm thk repurposed pallet wood - 4 length
2 inch x 2 inch wood - 2 length
Self locking table leg foldable bracket - 4 pieces
|Materials for the leg|
The plan is to add the pallet wood underneath the existing table for the additional leg support and adding the table leg. The table height is based on my IKEA Melltrop table so I can have a good clearance for leg area when sitting.
Below are the WIP photos:

...and photos of the table being test played.
The table is sturdy enough to have game played on it as the pallet wood acted as additional support for the existing table from bowing at the center. However, the table is a bit wobbly due to the mechanism of the bracket. As long as the table is at one place and not being heavily push or leaned to, I think it is durable for the usage.
Another thing is due to the additional support & leg, the table now is significantly heavier compared to before. During the previous set-up, I can easily carry the table to anywhere without breaking a sweat. Now I can feel the weight during the movement. Well, that's the compromise for making a table to stand on its own.
While doing the table, I had to work under watchful eyes of these 'officers'.
So before all of you jump the gun and shoot me with all inappropriate words, let me clarify that THERE IS NO WAY THESE KIDS ASSIST ME IN THE WORK. They are merely do a pretend play during my preparation before the work commenced. ALL sharp objects, tools, nails, screws and anything that can injure my kids were properly kept out safely from their reach AND THEY ARE UNDER MY STRICT SUPERVISION when using my tools. I let them play for 10 minutes before locking them back inside the house before I started my work.
So yeah...let it end here.
Until next time.
Stay safe guys.
