A polo shirt would be nice. I will take a large please!

Nice idea for the polos...and for us on the east coast, maybe fleeces would be in order. And now, given our weather report, maybe logoed snow shovels.

But I do have a question...how long do you think you'd be allowed to sit at a blackjack table wearing a WoO/WoV polo before you'd be asked to leave?

Wouldn't anything w/either logo instantly label you as being a counter?

Instantly? I doubt it. Yeah, they may be a bit leery, but unless you ARE counting, don't worry about it.

It kinda poses a question (which may wait until the poll feature of the new forum): How many people here count cards? I don't. Heck, when I'm at a BJ table, I often can't even add the three random cards in my hand!



Quite frankly, if you are counting, I suspect you'd do everything you can to stay under the radar - including NOT wearing a WOO/WOV logo.

What is this card counting that you speak of? There are no cards in a craps game, well, unless you are playing in CA. ;-)
I don't see myself being chased off the craps table because I am wearing a WoO/WoV logo. I'd be more worried that someone would ask me to supply the mean derivative of the standard polynomial on the Q factor of the craps game, and I would only be able to respond that the 7 has a 16.67% chance of showing up on any roll.
Please do not consider testing the applicants for the right to wear the logo!

I could probably play at any blackjack table (possibly exempting places I've been backed off) all day long, with or without that shirt, as long as they didn't think I was counting. I've never been asked to not play just as a precaution. The closest thing was the incident I wrote about in the Hilton review, where some guy in a suit came up to me out of nowhere and said "I'm watching you."

Correct! They made an appearance at the Global Gaming Expo.

Thanks for this response and all your good work.

I see one problem with selling strategy cards: You've already given away the information for free, so anyone can print out a chart and tape it to a piece of cardboard (as I've done). Is the lamination enough to get someone to buy one? Maybe.

Now, here's an idea. A card with 4 or 5 strategy tables for common rule configurations. It could unfold like a map. If you could come up with a compact way to do it, I'd buy one of those. For example, my current card is for double deck, but I often get stuck playing shoes because I'm a pretty low roller. This is where a comprehensive card would come in handy.

Back to the discussion at hand: I'm pretty picky about things like polo shirts. They can be expensive too. T-shirts are fun to collect and risk-free. A box of 50 might only cost $200.

I don't think inventory is an issue when using a "print-on-demand" store like Cafe Press.



Not a bad idea.

How about a Hawaii style shirt? Think Paul Sorvino in "Goodfellas" Black or dark Maroon. I'd buy one
