Hello Everyone!

New member here and just wanted to introduce myself and show my latest addiction additions. I used to play every weekend in high school and I always loved the mental aspect of the game. With all the free-time offered to me nowadays due to the pandemic, I've rekindled my love for the game after lurking here for several weeks.

I've had Dice chips for the longest and figured it was time for an upgrade. I have attached several photos of my current collection which I have acquired fairly recently after getting several ideas from this forum. As you can see after looking at the photos I decided to go with Nanuk 915 cases for transport and storage. It might be a bit of overkill but never liked the aluminum cases I previously used with other chips.

That's all I got. Safe to say I am committed now and hopefully I can play often going forward. I do struggle to find players for games so anyone in the immediate area looking for a game, let me know!

Welcome!! Stop on by for a margarita, shot of fireball, and a chug of Jack Daniels with me and @Lil Tuna if you're ever in the Fredericksburg area.

Awesome! I reside in the Stafford Courthouse area, about 20 mins from you. How often do you guys play??

Hello and welcome!

So, when are you ready for the next upgrade? ;)
That is what I am afraid of. I will always be looking for an upgrade!

So close. Do you regularly host? (I don’t mean right now). What stakes you play?
I host half the times amongst my friends/co-workers. We try to get a game a week but it all depends on the number of people that are available. As far as stakes go, we keep it around $20-25 buy-ins with $5 bounty. Some guys like to buy in multiple times (we allow it if it's early in the game). I would play for more if enough were interested.

You live close!! I actually live on Ni River Reservoir in Spotsylvania, so might be a couple extra minutes.

We usually play every Friday, and will get back once we get past this lockdown crap ends. Finishing my new basement (90% there), and hoping to get back to weekly or every other week by the end of June.

We have a mix of serious players and drunk gamblers, so be ready for anything and everything. I pretty much span the whole spectrum from time to time...LOL.

Here's a thread on my peeps.

Welcome to the forums from other NOVA denizens. Lots of folks from around here in the forums. Helpful for dropping samples by folks houses instead of shipping them!

Welcome to the forum. You're doing it right with the Nanuk cases and those sets of chips.
