I don't have the table it will go on, but just received the cloth.So this one is actually going to happen? For whatever reason, probably one helluva desire to see the Sphinx and the great pyramids, I've always had a great interest in ancient Egyptian civilization. I'll watch to see how it turns out.
Agree 100%IMHO in general felts should not be too busy with their graphics. Depending on the chips used, this can make things look a little berserk.
I much prefer solids, or subtle patterns. Preferably a color that isn’t going to overlap with chip hues and weights.
Great design for sure, but WAY TOO busy for a poker table felt.
Very well done. But I'll agree with the others that it is very "busy." I could see this being draped over a sarcophagus. I'd prefer to have line art of the ankh and the scarab beetles, although they do look great. On the other hand, I'd almost rather have it as a print I could frame and display on a wall. But this isn't my table and to each their own with table design. Maybe we could see it with some cards and chips on it at some point. Thanks for posting it.
I understand your point of view, but I don't think it's a problem at all. I have this on all my felts along with seat numbers, I find it helps a lot when organizing tournaments. Moving players is so much more streamlined than without.Another pet peeve of mine is felts which have the seat locations delineated. This works fine if you have every seat filled. But when playing with a different number of players than the felt is meant for, and people spread out, the lines/marks don’t match up and it starts to look jumbled.
Not a huge thing, but this seems especially common with cheaper mass-produced tables and toppers.
Did the customer tell you where the whole internal triple skull/stars/stripes (military stripes?) design came from? Was it just something they came up with or does it have some significance? Design is very unique.
How far in front of your cards? My cards are against the rail and capped; I place 10 $5 chips in front of my cards and let go, reaching back to my stack for more. Is that a string bet before I've pushed it forward? We cant just say in front of my cards. Distance matters, the line is a way of quantifying that distance.The "betting line" line should be for decoration only. I like the rule when the chips are placed on table, in front of your cards and released, only then is a bet. I see to many fights about the "betting line".
