Is anybody playing home games?
« on: May 27, 2020, 11:47:31 PM »
Some states are still on full lockdown.
Some states have opened more stores/services/businesses, but if you ain't there ya gotta git' the heck home.
Some states let you be out and about, just keep your social distance.
Some states let you be, yanno, adult about it all.

So that begs the question, are any of you back to playing home games?

I know a few casinos/card rooms are open, with partitions between players and dealers. It's like playing in a phone booths. But are any of you having games in your homes yet, whether your state/county says yeah or nay on it? I do a big tournament at my house the last weekend in March around my birthday ... poker all afternoon, drink and grill all evening and howl at the moon at night. I already rescheduled it once, for this weekend, but we're just not ready, so I'm shooting for the weekend after July 4th.

TD usage has gone up a bit recently, starting at about mid-May, but it's not too significant, and it still fluctuates quite a bit.  Seems like *some* people are starting to play, but not too many.  Poker is such a personal, interactive game.  I'm really curious to see how casinos will handle it.

We started back up last week.  We do temp checks at the door and require everyone to hand sanitize anytime they get up from the table or accidentally touch their face and mouth, etc.  Our group size is always two tables or less, so the risk is fairly low for our group.
