A poker table is used for recreation by up to four colonists at once. It needs to have chairs surrounding it so colonists can use it.

Acquisition

The poker table can be constructed once Complex Furniture has been researched. It requires Building Material (steel, wood, plasteel, etc.) 50 Stuff (Wood/Metals/Stone), Cloth.png 50 Cloth, Wood.png 25 Wood and 10,000 ticks (2.78 mins) of work and a construction skill of 6.

Analysis

Up to 4 pawns can use the table at once, but up to 8 chairs can be placed around the table - 2 per side. Therefore, only 4 chairs are needed and they can be placed on only 2 sides, saving space and allowing the table to be placed in a corner if necessary.

Compared to other recreation items, the poker table is tied with the billiards table with a recreation power of 130 percent. For New Arrivals colonies that don't need to research Complex Furniture, it the most powerful non-research recreation object. Its only downside is that it requires cloth. It is 30% more powerful than the chess table and the horseshoes pin and 10% more powerful than the tube television. The poker table is only beaten by the flatscreen television, with 10% more, and the megascreen television, with 30% more.

Arguably, it is better than the billiards table because players at the billiards table move around while playing, and do not gain recreation while moving. Additionally, billiards only supports half as many concurrent players and takes up a larger area. However, as they provide different recreation types, it is rarely a decision of one or the other and more a question of which one to build first.

The poker table provides cerebral play, as does the chess table and Game-of-Ur board. As pawns get bored of specific recreation types, the poker table can be seen as a direct replacement for those. However, mind must be paid to quality. While even a "Good" poker table is better than a "Legendary" game-of-Ur board, a high quality chess table may beat out a lower quality poker table - the specific recreation power should be considered, as should the ability for up to 4 pawns to play poker vs only 2 of the table and board.
