As I've said before: 43mm DDLM FTW!
But if you're actually considering a DDLM-themed table (and my god, I have to come over and play on it if you do. Where do you live and what's your name!? ROFL) then you MUST go 43mm on the chips.
Well outside of the potential cost, the only thing that might stop me from a custom DDLM table would be I do want to get some custom CPC chips down the road and the theme of them wouldn't fit with a DDLM table. And then, I'd probably feel I needed to have a 2nd custom table made for the custom set. Makes sense in my head any ways, but doesn't make sense for the wallet, and I'm going to be struggling as it is to find space for the one table lol. It's the rabbit hole people on here always bring up. And it seems to apply to everything I do
But... if it can happen, it will happen. Even if the artist here isn't around anymore, or isn't interested in drawing the artwork. I know a a super super talented tattoo artist who could make a huge drawing on skeletons playing Hold Em, with a set of their own DDLM chips on a custom DDLM table. You'd be welcome to play, but I'm in So Cal which is really far away from NJ. I'm 1.5 hours from the border so DDLM's big out here every year. Even a lot of the uncultured people tend to at least know about it. So it would make for a killer themed table IMHO. What I need to do is find some woodworkers and get quotes. I know buildyourpokertable.com has plans and kits with everything minus the wood for under $200. Maybe it'd be possible to get custom printed felt + their kit for everything else then pay a wood guy to actually build it for maybe a lot less than I'd expect. I looked at the custom tables on Gorilla gaming, and with even just a few "upgrades" I was sent into absolute shell shock lol. I've watched some time laspe table builds on YT, and for people who know what they're doing. It seems to be a fairly quick process. Of course these videos are edited and usually show the work being done at 5x speed. So I'm just assuming a skilled person could build a table from scratch in less than a day. I can't drop $2k+ on a table, Guess I'll see when I ask around.
These chips are really beautiful and a matching table would be the icing on the cake.
I think I would hit her with the "honey, what if BR Pro stopped selling to the public like Paulson did in 2014, already chips that were $1 are worth $4 and more... try getting that kind of return out of the stock market! I'm planning for our retirement dear!" Lmao
Or hit her with... well atleast I'm not like this idiot Ben on the forum that spent more on one set of chips than a cheap but brand new car! True story
Unfortunately my lover is also on the forum and encourages bad decisions on chip purchases... believe me, when the itch grabs a hold of you really bad. You will actually be thankful for that voice of reason!
that is still lower level pricing for chips, if that's too much then pray you never fall in love with THC paulsons! Lol
She doesn't know I'm on these forums, I'm sure she wouldn't even believe there are forums dedicated to poker chips (lol) And while I don't know who Ben is, telling her about him and how much he spent will just result in her telling me to not go on these forums anymore. Most females don't want their men watching porn or on Tinder hook-up apps. Mine doesn't like forums about BBQ or making pizza because they always result in me buying a lot of stuff "you don't even need!" A few months ago I spent $500 on an outdoor pizza oven, then $250 on a table for it. Here I'm looking at probably close to $500-600 for a set of custom 43's with plaques. And if I bought even a cheaper generic poker table, yeah she's not gonna understand lol.
This is why I should go and look up a few local lumberjack types and inquire about costs to build me a custom table "but honey, the custom table I configured on Gorilla Gaming was $3,500. I had an almost identical one made for half that!" That's a good deal no? no? oh...
Damn it! I thought Gene was announcing some new news! I was super excited! Just went to the link and it was broken.
Came back to the site and realized his original post was from 2018
Was looking forward to the 15% discount lol!
Sorry I set off the alarm, but you might want to keep following this thread. I have a very reliable history of when I buy something, without fail within a few weeks. Either a new and improved version comes out, or a super deal's offered on the current one out of nowhere. I suspect 3 weeks after I buy BR might have an out of nowhere flash sale lol.
