Poker (and other games) Despite Barely Knowing Anyone

A human being can only tolerate so much Settlers of Catan, and we're pretty sure the Geneva Convention prohibits more than one "game" of Monopoly per day. So pick up some game night essentials and ensure you're never stuck as a thimble in and endless loop of paying and receiving rent money again!

What's in your game library and are you missing any of these basic games?

I'm just hanging out, really.

Still waiting on the poker table ordered Nov 26th. At least it has finally shipped.

I've read that the cupholders are crappy since they aren't deep enough to actually keep a drink from tipping over. Hopefully my table comes in the next few days and I can get a better review of things that matter for a poker table.

Fat Cat Poker & Blackjack Folding Table Top appears to be smiling in the picture. He must really like his job.

Amazon has this (poker chips) on lightning deal right now for $26 (2 hours remaining). I have prime, which means I'd pay $26 total. Or, $29+5 on woot (or since I bought something else today just $29). Either way, woot(amazon) more expensive than amazon only.

makes no sense. makes even less cents.

Foosball game quality seems not so good based on the only 4 reviews on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Mainstreet-Classics-Table-Top-Foosball/dp/B004135WNM

Disappointing, this might have been a nice gift for my neighbor's kid.

We've got that foosball table. It was great for a day and then it started falling apart. YMMV.

"About Poker and Other Games

Whatever you do, do not entertain guests with card games and betting in the back of your establishment while offering spirits towards the front of your establishment. People will think you're a pervert."

You Woot! people can be kill joys some times, but if you insist. I guess it could be spirits all over and card games in the front and rear. You should get approval of the house before you try that type of thing especially back room card games, the house does not like that without prior approval, I think it is a zoning regulation thing.

Poker table is not a good deal, it's cheaper on other sites (129.99, says eligible for free shipping):

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

Poker table was delivered yesterday. I set it up after work. It's not as sturdy as I would have liked, but is definitely more sturdy than other folding type tables I've played at. Cupholders are total garbage, I might buy actual cupholders (like the ones used at casinos that have a tab that slides under the rail), or drill out the current spots to fit drop in cupholders.

The fold in the middle is kind of annoying if dealing cards from anywhere other than the middle.

One last thing would be that it should have some kind of handle. It's not too heavy that it would take 2 people carry, so why not have a handle attached to it so there is actually something to hold it by when transporting it.

All in all, it's an ok table for an ok price. If the crowd you play with are not wild, this table is sufficient for weekly games.
