This is BEAUTIFUL!
on October 13, 2006
I ordered this only because I discovered it was cheaper to buy than rent a poker table for the evening (I'm hosting a "casino night"), so I didn't even pay attention to what the quality would be like... I just liked it because it had more than one game surface and I figured I could use the different surfaces and have multiple games going at once.
In any case, when I received this item I was struck by how GORGEOUS it is! I had no idea I was buying something so nice. It's not just something to stick in your basement, it would make a beautiful gift that anyone would be proud to own. And I didn't notice when buying it that it had a carrying case, but that's very nice if you take turns playing at other people's homes. In my case, arranging the poker night WAS the gift, but now I have the added bonus of giving my husband a really beautiful poker table top to boot!
One note, the insert is two-sided, so you can only play craps OR blackjack, you can't set up both at once. For my casino evening, I will set out the poker table at one side of the room, and use the craps surface at the other side. The craps/blackjack one is really like an insert, so it won't have the chips-and-cups holders if you separate it from the poker surface, but it's really attractive even without that little luxury. (Also, we haven't used it yet, so I can't say how well the felt holds up over time or anything.)
In any case, I am thrilled with this purchase!
