We did that too for a while. But you know how games creep. There’s always that one or two guys pushing for higher stakes or can’t stand to be the first to bust out. Since it’s mostly social, nobody wants to leave early so we agreed on a buy in. It’s also how our side cash games started.
I've been using a website, FB, Emails and E-vite. Getting my players on one platform has been difficult.
This coming year, I'm going to go website (w/google calendar) and FB. I'm sure I'll still have to send emails, but google calendar has all the functionality of E-vite.
