The item is a fully assembled gaming table for the purpose of playing recreational card and dice games. The table measures 78 inches in length and 43 inches in width. The table is constructed of a wood/plywood under layer and a frame with a wood trim. The under layer and the frame are covered by green polyester felt with a foam padding under the felt. The green felt is printed with a white outline and a logo depicting the suits (clubs, spades, diamonds, and hearts) of playing cards in the center of the green felt. The table’s edge is upholstered with a 4 inch wide black vinyl padded armrest. The armrest includes eight built-in plastic drink holders. A nylon carry bag with a zipper closure is included to store the table when not in use. Pictures were provided, in lieu of a sample.
