If you purchase a blackjack table, you will need blackjack supplies to go along with it. Blackjack is a relatively fast-paced card game, and there's nothing more annoying than having to wait for a shuffle every five minutes. It holds up the game and causes people to lose interest. Fortunately, there are some supplies available that enhance the flow and enjoyment of the game.

Among the more important blackjack supplies are the six deck acrylic dealer shoe and an automatic card shuffler. These items allow the game to flow without a hitch. If you're hosting a game with your friends, these supplies will allow you and your friends to relax and concentrate on playing the game and socializing, not the obligatory shuffling of the cards.

Other Blackjack Supplies

You absolutely need at least three separate colored chips to run an enjoyable blackjack game. This gives players at least three different denominations to work with, which is critical for a well nuanced game. If you prefer higher stakes games, you should look into having at least five different colored chips. Five color chips sets are truly reserved for the men and women with fat wallets.

In addition, I would have at least seven decks of playing cards on hand, especially if you own a six deck blackjack dealing shoe. Make sure the cards are all the same. The last thing you want are diamond cards mixed among your Hawaiian hoola dancer cards. Consistency is very important when it comes to cards and your blackjack supplies. And you might debate purchasing a set of card cutters, as well.
