I recently stumbled on a 16' craps table for sale. It is HUGE!. Plus, it's priced pretty cheap and appears to be in good condition, at least for our needs.

The reason I am intrigued by this thing is simply because we can put on 20-24 players using the same 3 dealers. My questions:

Is this too big/awkward of a table to work for dealers?

Do players prefer a smaller 10', 12' or 14? table.

Thanks.

16'? Probably why it's priced so cheap.

I don't actually know what sizes I've played on, but I wouldnt think any large size would be bad for you. The players strongly dislike not being able to find a spot, any other feelings they have one way or the other would be minor IMO.

On second thought, this might take an inordinate amount of time making payouts compared to a 12' or 14 table. And time, as mentioned before, is our worst enemy.

According to that theory, a tub is your best bet.

But more players might make it hard on the dealers, keeping track of who's bet is who's bet.
