    What TV size should I buy for my table?

    I'm going to be making a table with a tv built in it for playing DnD. What size tv works best for fantasy grounds? If anyone has any tips for building a table I'd love to hear them also. I would also love tips on using fantasy grounds for in person games.

    One thing to consider, is if you are going to be using the table with mini's, then you will want to display your maps at a 1":5' scale. And then TV size will dictate what size maps you can display.

    But, imo, I would look at the widest I would want the table, and how much "edge space" you want between the TV and the table. That would drive the size of the TV for me.

    Yep - use the extension mentioned by LordEntrails to give quick-and-easy sizing to 1 inch grids on your TV.

    I use a 45" 4K TV - this gives me approx 100 pixels per square (so the maps look good, not pixelated) and just about allows for a 30x24 inch map (width is the limit) to fit on the TV. You can see a number of photos in the extension thread.

    If you don't have that amount of space (or cash for a 4K TV) then get the biggest TV you can to fit in the space you have - this will give you the most flexibility.
