Liven up your floor plan

Most of the plans we get sent are in the default colour scheme. Don't forget that you can use textures and clip art to make your floor plan more visually appealing. We install a number of textures and clip art images with PerfectTablePlan.

Poster prints

PerfectTablePlan can print to any size of paper that your printer supports. If you don't have a large format printer, it can also span your print across multiple pages. Alternatively, you can export to PDF format (File>Export) and email the PDF to someone that does have a large format printer. We list a few companies that will print PDFs to poster size on our website.

The Betrayers' Banquet

betrayer's banquetThe Betrayer's Banquet is an interesting variant of the prisoners' dilemma from game theory. A banqueting table is set with 48 chairs, 24 on each side, at which players are seated at random. At the top end of the table, the food is exquisite. At the bottom end, the food is charitably described as unpalatable. In between, it is a spectrum between these two extremes.

After each course, pairs of opposing diners secretly decide to cooperate with or betray each other.
  • If they both cooperate, then they are both moved up five seats towards the good food.
  • If they both betray, they are both moved five seats down towards the worse food.
  • If one betrays and one cooperates, the betrayer moves up ten seats, and other down ten seats.
Sounds like fun for the guests, but a nightmare for the caterers! More details at www.betrayersbanquet.com.
