This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

This "by request" set of carved card tables is designed to match all my Mahjong Table and Lotus Ming Dining Table sets.

Please note: You can use the carved card tables, by themselves, if you have Nightlife; but if you want them to match the Mahjong Table sets I made, you will also need Bon Voyage.

Just a few sample closeup pictures:

(See pictures below for more color combinations)

In order to have all colors of both wood and felt, you must put ALL the card (poker) table packages in your downloads folder. If all packages are included, you can mix and match the available felt with any color wood, and the available wood with any color felt. It is not possible to add just a felt color or just a wood color, since all packages must include both a felt and wood color, per package.

Once all packages are in your downloads folder, you will have the following colors:

felt -
lighter blond

wood -
dark wood
lighter wood
antique fawn
lighter blond

To have the whole matching gaming set, also look for my "Dark and Lighter Wood Mahjong Table/Chair Sets - in Red, Blue, Emerald, and Cream" and my "Mahjong Table/Chair Completer Sets," which add the rest of the colors to match these card tables. The Ming chairs found in the the matching sets are designed to be used with these card tables.

You may recolor these, by using my textures as a base for making more color tones, if you wish. No restrictions. Have fun!

Thank you, everyone, for your compliments. I'm so glad people are enjoying my sets. :D

The large square rug is something I made. I lifted some texture components from a rug in my game and resized/rotated and rearranged them into a pattern that pleased me. Then I softened the colors a bit, and gave the rug a different colored background. So you won't find it anywhere. (I thought about making it available, but I cannot remember where I got the rug that had the components I lifted, so I cannot verify that it was "legal" to lift the components. Just to be on the safe side, I think I should only use it in my personal game.)

Little explanatory note: I realize the poker/card table itself was released before Bon Voyage, but these recolors were a request for and are being advertised as a match for the Mahjong tables I recolored. So if someone is hoping to download the whole gaming set, they would need the Bon Voyage expansion. Not wanting to take any chances, I'm saying a person needs to be playing Bon Voyage to get the full use out of these card/poker table recolors. But, yes, they will probably show up in your game and function properly in an earlier expansion.

I just downloaded your gorgeous mahjongg tables, and didn't realize these were already available too. The colours are so beautiful, and it will look so good to have both kinds of tables together now. So many possibilities.

Thank you so much for these wonderful recolours. I'm glad I decided to poke around a bit, and not just wait patiently for these tables that I thought weren't ready yet. Well done.

centime :)
