Hi all,
I brought this along to the uk games expo and many people were asking me about it (one person even took a photo).

They were around £8 for 2, from Amazon.

I know Board game geek sells something like this though their store, but I don't know how much shipping outside the U.S. is.

...Or just buy a bigger tablewhistle.

I am lucky in that I have a fairly large gaming table which can accommodate just about any game. I got a piece of superboard and put a mica/gloss finish on which creates a smooth surface for gaming. I actually did this for a smooth flicking surface for "Flick em up" the dexterity game gulp

I tired to make the card accordion but it kept popping out and when I eventually got it to stay inside I realised I actually had more than enough space and it looked better on my table as I could see all the cards.

What I would definitely recommend are those lovely player mats you can download off the file section and laminate and get printed on some 160g thick paper. It helps reduce clutter and allows everyone to organise all their cards and items on or around it. Here is a pic of my setup before the game.

I have a big enough table - but this was at the UK games expo where you can't exactly control the amount of table space (like a knife fight in a phone booth)!

Another advantage is that the cards sit up, so everyone can see them easily.
