The other day i said that i do not gamble and i still hold to that
the exception is when we play carrom.
i started making these about 4 years ago and wanted to start them back up again.
usually the playing board takes up the entire carrom table so we keep a side tray table for drinks and to hold the betting catch/ ante pot.
just pitch your coins in when you have to contribute.
nickel = you give when the other makes in a soldier
quarter = when you scratch
half dollar = you give when the other makes in the queen.
