Nice. I have extendable table which can be enlarged from sides. So sometimes during game we enlarge table in requested direction.
When playing, plaing on tablecloth, and when need one/two position for tiles on sides, just move tablecloth with all tiles on it.

Do these tables have special marks for the placement of start tiles?  ;)

For Mega-Carcassonne games that could be awesome.

Alas no, but they are kinda chalkboard black, so probably easy to make own marks as required and wipe away after  :))

Reminds me of this sequence of videos:

https://twitter.com/carcassonnew/status/1287327573194620928?s=19

Wow! That does look like an awesome gaming table in general, if a little to small for larger Carcassonne games. As much as I would love something that magically auto sorted tiles (and also separated expansions as required ;D )  Not sure I would want to put my collection in that 'tumble dryer of potential death' (for precious tiles) part in the third video  :)) (though if I was to somehow end up getting a table like this I would be likely to get a second hand base set to use just to try that bit!).

I wish I could read it, if anybody here can (or has seen a translation), is it really suggesting that it automatically arranges the tiles in those four rows that rise up from underneath?  Not entirely convinced it would get the tiles all face down from those videos but if it does then that's impressive stuff!

If, dot, drilling-machine will do what's important

 :)) Indeed!

It's an automated Mahjong table. I think the tiles have to be inserted right way up. I think the unveiling may be prearranged too. A bit of smoke and mirrors, but it's a nice concept.  Agreed that tile damage is probably likely too as you said!

Of course it is, that makes a lot of sense.  They play a lot of Mahjong in China and the tiles they play with tend to be solid plastic :)
