My neighbor worked at Hasbro before retirement, has a pile of these. They work great and look pretty cool as well as being a conversation starter.

Plus you can play the game after dinner. Course you have to be careful not to fall off the picnic table.

I was thinking it would make the Craft Beer Exchange even more interesting...

Plus it would be a good way to model the used shorts you'll be selling after your next shower

Lee valley tools has spring loaded tablecloth clips for thicker tables, they work really well.

I went to a fabric store and purchased a length of vinyl upholstery fabric for my table cloth. It is heavy so it doesn't blow off and it doesn't have that fuzzy backing that picks up so much trash. I wash it in the washer occasionally and when at the campsite it wipes clean like the "oil cloth " tablecloths.

Yep! We use oil cloth and I love it. It is durable and cleans up nicely. I picked up mine at a local fabric store.

I did not think so either Pat, and went looking. It seems almost all fabric sold as tabletop oilcloth is actually vinyl coated cotton. It is still touted as a great product, that looks and wears well. It sounds like it has been many years since real French oilcloth was made, though there might be a few manufacturers out there still.

Here is on write up on it. Further looking turned up pretty much the same story.

Thanks Jim . I am going to look at the fabric store . The vinyl table clothes are so thin . I use to have to bring a piece of oil cloth to school for my desk . Enjoyed the write up too . Pat
