Blackjack Tables

Blackjack tables are finding their way into more and more homes. The beauty of blackjack is its inherent simplicity--get as close to the number 21 as possible without going over. Obviously, there are a number of rules and different playing philosophies, but that is the essence of the game. Poker can take years to effectively learn; whereas the basics of blackjack can be taught in an hour.

Blackjack is a wonderful party game because so many people know how to play. If you don't have the money to purchase a nice blackjack table, you can buy a professional blackjack set that includes a felt layout that you can place on another table. Throw in a six deck card shoot, and someone willing to deal the cards, and you have yourself an entertaining evening.

Blackjack Tables Fit Everywhere

I like the idea of owning a blackjack table, but I live in a one bedroom apartment and would have no place to put it. If that's your current living situation, look into folding blackjack tables or blackjack table tops. Companies that manufacture gaming supplies know that card games transcend gender, race, and socio-economic groupings. These companies have designed gaming supplies to fit everyone's needs.

If you have a little more space and a little more money to burn, blackjack tables can actually double as a nice piece of furniture. In fact, a rather affluent friend of mine purchased an antique poker table, restored it, and uses it as a showpiece in his entertainment center. He has an additional blackjack table for his weekly card games.
