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.
I love this mat. I had an issue with my original purchase. The mat was separating into two pieces. I contacted the help department and they sent me a brand new mat. It is nice when a company sells a good product that it fully supports.
This mat is the exact product I had in mind when I started searching and I'm happy I found it. I bought one as a gift, but when I saw how perfect it is, I bought another one for myself. The felt feels like a poker table at a casino, this was the most important element for me, as I have seen some mats that feel like a mousepad. We use ours for games and for building Lego sets.
