    So frustrating to plan on rolling some dice on a rare day off, and find that you can't get near an open table. Meanwhile two tables sit dormant. Come on, Valley Forge.

    I'm heading up the turnpike to Parx. I prefer the atmosphere and lower limits at Valley Forge, but I'm pretty sure they'll have at least 4 open tables at Parx. Disappointing.

    When you do get a day off, so will most everybody else. For example, Jan 16 coming up. Early morning AC sounds like your best bet.

    I hear you. I certainly expect a bigger crowd than a usual Monday. I don't know why Valley Forge didn't.

    Frustration on "Finding Quiet Craps Tables" is unfortunately here, as Casino's tighten their Budgets & more & more folks are Playing Craps.

    Think less people are playing craps.Here at Mohegan Sun quite a few tables have gone replaced with another table game.

    did valley forge enhance their casino license yet or do visitors still have to purchase a one day pass/admission ticket to get in?

    Still a class C. I don't mind the the pass system as they give you a gift card for food and drinks of equal cost. I actually bought an annual membership. I like the small "clubby" atmosphere of the casino and also use the hotel on occasion.

    Casinos are in business to make themselves money, not to make things convenient for we players.

    They prefer to have fewer employees working, and to keep tables minimums as high as they can.

    If the assholes are charging you an annual membership, it sounds like the same thing I saw at Nemacolin, where at least I was able to get into the casino without charge after blowing the casino hostess and showing her my room key and drivers license. I purposely gave her my license to carry card when she asked for a drivers license, but she insisted on the drivers license.

    Just on principle, I would not play before I would give them a dime in the way of an annual fee.
