I have 2 of these mats. Bought the smaller one a few years back. It has held up well.
Great looking and functioning Matt. The plush red velvet side works great for picking up and shuffling cards. Much better than sliding cards across the table to pick up. It also sets the stage for a great game experience. Hard to go back to a plain table top. This rolls up nice for storage and transportation. Also lays perfectly flat-no curling up of any of the edges. Would definitely recommend for any serious gamer.
This mat was exactly the quality we were looking for. Thick soft almost micro-fiber like top is perfect for the card games that our family play so often. The reverse is a very grippy rubber that is like a durable mousepad backing. Hopefully more colors will be available in the future, but the default maroon is surprisingly pleasant on the eyes while gaming.
It was a bit hit at our monthly poker game! Everyone agreed it was like playing on a Vegas table. And it fit the dining room table perfectly.
The mat lays flat and the felt surface has a nice feel. When our extended family gets together we like to gather around the dining room table and play cards. Our oak dining room table has a clear finish that the cards don’t slide well on, and are difficult to pick up. This mat does away with that and gives the table the feel of a real game table.
