We've shown you how to build a retro gaming table before but if you're looking for something a bit cheaper, Element14 shows off how to build one mounted onto an IKEA Lack table. Element14's guide uses a Raspberry Pi 3 to power the brains, then an Arduino Leonardo to power the joystick. From there, it's just about mounting in an old 17" LCD monitor, hooking up a pair of cheap speakers, then fitting it all together.

As far as these types of things go, this is one of the simplest gaming tables we've seen. Head over to Element14 for the full guide.
