Okay, listen, /r/boardgames, we need to have a heart-to-heart. Every time this comes up you bitch and moan about how you'd loooove to try Crokinole but just can't briiiing yourself to pay so much for a fancy board.

And y'know what, I get it. I feel your pain. Crokinole is an awesome game. It's extremely intuitive yet difficult to master, frustrating yet exhilarating, timelessly fast and simple, good for families and competitive gamers alike, and compulsively replayable. It is one of the three board games I have ever gotten my ADD-yet-ruthlessly-practical mother to admit enjoying, and it is one of only two games that my frighteningly competitive wife will ask to play without any prompting and still love me after we are finished playing. But you don't have to drop 200 bucks on a schmancy board just to see if it's something you might like (even though you will like it).

Those dinky little multi-game boards that you can find on the internet and in your grandfather's attic and the local thrift store work just fine, and will give you hours and hours of perfectly good play, at a cost that's way less than what you'd pay for a greased-up carved-wood board.

And what's more, if you do like it (and you will), then you can always upgrade to the fancy board and give the old one to your four-year-old nephew or something, without any regrets. Which leads into my second point, which is that speaking of regrets, I know that you routinely spend 200 dollars and more on those big-box CMON games that you never have a chance to play, just for the privilege of seeing those crappy little injection-molded plastic bits languish forever poised for battle yet never satisfied on your top shelf.

You will play Crokinole. You will like Crokinole. When you pull Crokinole down off of the shelf, all of your friends will smile instead of cringing and girding their loins. Don't you need a game like that? You do. Search your feelings. You know it to be true. Come back to the light side. Nobody wants to play Malifaux with you. Buying Blood Rage will only make you happy for a moment, and that moment will slowly turn sour the longer you try to find someone to play with you. You will pass Crokinole on to your grandchildren someday.

Ultra Pro 25count 2-Piece Plastic...

Example how I use them:

u/BrianBoyko · 14 pointsr/poker

Poker sets: You'll probably need a poker set and case for about 500 chips to start. - anything that's Paulson clay tend to be the A++ standard.

That said, if you're not looking to spend $200 on chips just before you play a single hand, a set of "dice chips" is probably good. Dice chips are generic "clay composite" chips. They're mostly plastic, but they've got a good weight to them. (there are some poker chips that are just crappy, feel crappy, and don't have the marks on the side) You can order them from Amazon, and here's just one.

Something like this is probably middle-of-the road. True clay chips, but no custom markings:

More than the chips, though, you'll also need cards. You do -not- want to cheap out on the cards; Bicycle decks are fine for play games, but when money's involved, you want cards that resist getting bent, dog-eared, marked, etc. Get a set of Kem, Copag, Marion Pro, or Rally cards. (Kem is the WSOP standard, I prefer Copag). These "plastic" decks resist getting marked, warped or scuffed, and one set of two decks should last you years.

If your husband (and you) want to play Texas Hold 'em, I suggest Jumbo Index cards. Since you're only peeking at two cards in your hand, the big indexes aren't that big a deal when peeking; but since three of the cards will be across the table... you want to make sure everyone can see them without straining or leaning over. These are my favorites:

I've also had good luck with this brand:

but they're not as well known and they're kind of a risk. They do hold up very well, and are of similar quality to the Copag cards.

u/ice_w0lf · 11 pointsr/AskMenOver30

This starter set will get you off to a great start and will be the best discs for you long-term if you decide to stick with it.

The /r/discgolf community is great overall especially for new players wanting to ask questions.

There is also quality coverage on YouTube of professional disc golf tournaments. Check out any of the following channels: Jomez Pro, Central Coast Disc Golf (these are the two biggest channels), The Disc Golf Guy, Par Save Productions, or GK Pro.

For channels about how to get better once you get bitten by the disc golf bug, check out Danny Lindahl's channel or search Physics of Flight on YouTube.

u/kharn009 · 11 pointsr/discgolf

I would recommend a starter pack for each of you. I got the Innova Starter Pack and it is excellent for beginners. Depending on the arm strength/athleticism you probably will not even need the driver for the first while.


Most people here will recommend that you do not regularly the the driver discs until you have a better handle on the game as the drivers will hide/mask bad form and limit your game farther down the line.

u/questToFI · 10 pointsr/financialindependence

Disc Golf is a big one for me. I've put $50 into the sport and have all the equipment I need.

✅ Cheap cost of entry (link)

✅ Free to play (some courses are pay-to-play, make sure you check)

✅ Exercise while you play

✅ Fun with friends who are both good at the sport or have never played

✅ Outdoors

✅ Can play anywhere in the country (find a course)

It's an awesome hobby. Check out /r/discgolf for more. But watch out for those guys. They will have you thinking you need to buy 10 discs a year. You don't.

u/Vhadka · 9 pointsr/discgolf

Well since we're discussing it in this thread, why not collaborate on something? Here's a start, feel free to offer suggestions and/or add to it.

I was going to throw some videos/channels to look at for technique but work is about to pick up so I don't have time right this second.

Beginner disc reccomendations:
First, disc down. You don't need a high speed driver as a beginner, because there's about a 99% chance you lack the proper arm speed and technique to throw it the way it needs to be thrown to fly properly.

With that said, here are some specific disc recommendations:

Fairway driver: Lat 64 River, Innova Teebird, Innova Leopard

Midrange: Innova Roc, Discraft Buzzz, Discraft Comet

Putter: Innova KC Aviar, Gateway Wizard (alternative is if you're lucky enough to be near a disc golf store, go there and pick up a few different putters, and buy whichever one feels comfortable in your hand)

There are also starter kits available via Amazon and various sporting goods stores. The most common being the Innova DX starter set (DX is a less durable type of plastic), the Innova Champion starter set (champion plastic is more durable). Discraft also makes starter sets, some with bags and some without.

You can buy discs individually at:

u/Lord_Ahrim1536 · 8 pointsr/ultimate

Other than the classic 175g ultimate disc, you could grab one of these throwing rings from Aerobie, I believe it still holds the world record for being the farthest object thrown by a human.

u/RAChiraneau · 8 pointsr/twilightimperium

Here's what we did to store our TI4 in the box. I stole the idea from user bigegg on the bgg forums in this thread--

Some of his details are incorrect and he has no references for what he actually used or bought, so that's what I'm doing here.

Ground force tokens, trade good tokens, and other misc things go in one of these: (EDIT: we clipped off the little hanger thing on the end because it made the box just barely not fit)

Action card deck and Agenda deck each gets one of these

Seventeen of these for the race tokens and cards, one for the planet deck, and one for the objective deck, for a total of nineteen:

Lastly, these six boxes are for the ships and the colored cards--the tech decks and promissory notes:

Everything all together was around $50.

We cut the planet tray out of the rest of the tray with a box knife, and we put the strategy cards atop one of the stacks of planets. The victory track we ended up moving to the top of the race boxes so it would lay flat. Other than that, the books and stuff sit on top of everything, and the box closes up no problem. It's considerably heavier than before due to all the added plastic, of course, but it's looking like cleanup and set up will be much easier with this method because all anybody will need to grab is their color box and their race box. Hope this helps!

Edit: Ah also forgot to mention--we sleeved everything in these. They are thinner than the FFG ones and therefore fit in our plastic cases:

u/unclesharky · 8 pointsr/discgolf
u/ShogunEinstein · 7 pointsr/discgolf

These defy the purpose of practicing with a hanging chain. The idea is that if you're able to focus on the chain and hit it when you practice putting, then when you get out on the course and it's time to lay in a put, you'll feel more confident hitting a larger target.

u/fucknazizombies · 7 pointsr/Atlanta


Anywho. You'll want at least two discs, a driver and a putter. It might be easy to start with a "fairway driver." Here's a good starter pack on Amazon. You might also consider checking out 42 Degrees South in L5P. It's mostly a smoke shop, but they have a decent selection of discs too.

My favorite places to play in Atlanta are:

Perkerson Park - It's the only one ITP, and it's really pretty. They recently added a bunch of signage and new tees, and they keep it in good shape. But it's tough for a beginner. You might want to start out on...

Redan Park - It's a few miles East OTP, but not too far away
. Good for beginners, not a whole lot of water hazards. I usually take new folks here.

JP Moseley - I haven't been since they redesigned it, but it's apparently very impressive now. 27 holes, one of the highest rated courses in Georgia, but slightly farther away than I'd usually want to travel (40 minutes from my house).

There are other courses around too, such as Deer Lick Park, but Perkerson and Redan are my go-to two.

u/Ninja47 · 7 pointsr/discgolf

Hands down, the [DGA Mach Lite] ( takes the cake. I’ve had mine for 4 years and it gets used almost every day. I’ve taken it to countless putting, indoor, outdoor, whatever type of leagues/rounds. Still in great condition. Also not that loud for practicing at night while my wife/kids are sleeping.

u/NSA_Chatbot · 7 pointsr/Showerthoughts
u/Polluckhubtug · 6 pointsr/philadelphia

> is alcohol permitted?


That’s like asking if you’re allowed to drink outside an Eagles game.

As for buying discs? Just buy a very stable, bright colored driver and a putter on amazon. You really only need 2-3 discs starting out.

Something like:

When you learn to throw and place the discs where you want them then you’ll begin to notice how different discs have different flight paths, you’ll use that like you would a different club in golf for different situations. But buy a cheap set because you’ll beat up your discs (beat up discs become understable) and probably lose a couple in the time it takes to build up the skills you will need to utilize a good disc.

Don’t forget to write your number and an email on your disc, if you lose it then people typically reach out to try and get it back to you.

u/palindromebob · 6 pointsr/poker

You want a neoprene roll up topper like this.

u/_StatesTheObvious · 5 pointsr/videos

I am laughing at the objects he keeps pulling out.

u/mahourin · 5 pointsr/AnimeFigures

Although i've built foam risers before to great success, If you want more flexibility, Ultra Pro Deck Boxes + the like are very useful.
They aren't too expensive and are transparent. They also come with 2 for the price of 1 deck box.
These are the ones I use:

150 Card Size

250 Card Size

100 Card Size

25 Card Size

Extra Tall

If you just want staircase risers for nendoroids, I bought mine locally. Some scrounging on the subreddit should net you some decent sellers.

u/arcticdonkeys · 5 pointsr/discgolf

Nice looking discs, and good choices too, but if you're just starting out, these discs might be a bit frustrating to throw. It might do you well to leave these at home for a bit, and pick up a starter kit (like this one by Innova, or this on by Discraft) or just a midrange like the Discraft Buzzz. Learning how to drive with a midrange or putter is one of the best ways to develop good form and work up your arm speed before moving up to fairway and distance drivers! :)

u/_McDrew · 5 pointsr/discgolf

I'd say consider this set as well:

Seems to be about the same as the discraft sets you're looking at too.

That being said, just getting a beginner set and starting to throw is more important than which set you get. Just start playing and in ~30-40 rounds, come back here and ask for advice on how to upgrade your bag now that you have some idea of what you're doing. Its what I did.

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/AskMen

Here ya go man DISCS

u/spectre323 · 5 pointsr/AskMen

I bought a Disc Golf basket for my friend that was visiting. He lives out of state, and once a year he'll come down after visiting family for the holidays. Usually around the first couple weeks of January.

I bought a basket for myself in December and he mentioned he was going to try and save for a few months and hopefully buy one in the summer. I make pretty good money working in IT so I bought him one too.

He's back home now and sends me pics of it in the snow in his backyard super happy. It's always a good feeling to make someone feel happy.


u/RockosaurusRex · 5 pointsr/boardgames

I would highly recommend getting this:

You get the benefits of an automatic shuffler without running the risk of your cards getting destroyed. You can feel if there's going to be a jam, reverse it, then crank clockwise again.

I've been into the board game scene for less than a year but this was one of my first investments and I don't take my games anywhere without it. I can't shuffle properly so I want it available, especially for games with large decks like Shadows Over Camelot. I just cut the deck, shuffle, then repeat once. Makes setup quick, easy, and random.

The bonus is that I don't have to worry about anyone using the dreaded bridge shuffle technique since everyone wants to try the shuffler because it's just so cool. Just tell them to go slow with it to feel for jams and ensure the cards distribute more evenly.

The only downsides to this shuffler are that it comes with a stupid giant sticker on the top (which is removable anyway) and you can't shuffle sleeved cards in it. I only sleeve hidden role cards so it's not an issue for me.

u/WorldWideDarts · 5 pointsr/DartsTalk

Calling all Canadians... Winmau Golden Vanquish are $16 on your Amazon right now!!!

That looks like an Aerobie, I had one of those in the 1980s...

Getting it off the roof is easy though, as per the other comment try getting it off an electricity pylon.

u/arlaton · 4 pointsr/boardgames

My copy is sleeved and I use these 25 card deck boxes. 50 Card for some larger characters like Endrbyt.

However, the ~70 characters that I have they don't all fit into one box. Even if they did, the plastic deck boxes would make it quite heavy. As such, I have keep some of the more basic characters in the War box and I have the larger Devastation box host some more advanced characters. This allows me to keep a travel kit of sorts to teach new players. Here's a snippet of my Devastation box.. My War box is incidentally at a friends house from the last time I taught the game.

u/Chezzik · 4 pointsr/discgolf

Everything is 3/4" pipe. The total costs of the joints at Lowe's is $9.24:

  • 5 Tees, $0.47 each
  • 1 Cross, $2.37
  • 4 45-degree elbows, $0.86 each
  • 4 90-degree elbows, $0.27 each

    For the pipe, you can get 10 feet of 200psi pipe for $1.51. This works fine for all the tubes except for the main vertical shaft. For that, you want to get the heavier pipe, so that it will make a tighter fit with the post on the basket. I think the heavier pipe is around $2.50 for 10 feet. All together, you'll be spending about $13.

    The basket itself is $18.83 right now on Amazon:

    The first design I tried was this. It's a few bucks cheaper, because it uses less of the 45 degree elbows, but would need glue to keep it from falling over in one direction. I started with edges that were 2 feet long for the base, and so when I decided to bisect them, I made them 11.25 inches (allowing 1.5 inches for the tee). When I went with the final design, I kept that measurement the same. Here's what I ended up for total pieces:

  • 8 pieces 11.25" -- for the base
  • 2 pieces 11.5" -- for the long diagonals
  • 2 pieces 8" -- for the short diagonals
  • 2 pieces 4.5" -- for the long arms
  • 2 pieces 3" -- for the short arms
  • 1 piece 2" -- vertical piece under the cross
  • 1 piece 27" -- main vertical shaft, holds the basket

    Total length of tube needed: 173 inches. A single ten foot piece from the hardware store is 120 inches. So, you'll need two of them.

    I marked the distances with a sharpie, and then cut them with a compound miter box saw. I didn't allow any space for the cut, since tolerances here are pretty lax anyway. If you don't have a compound miter box saw, you can just use a hacksaw instead, but it will take a lot longer, and you'll need to sand the pieces after each cut.

    I didn't bother gluing any of this, but it's pretty sturdy. If you plan to use it a lot, it would be worthwhile to glue the joints, and spray paint it.

u/electricsentinel · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Cokinole was what sent me on my research into dexterity games. The price point is a factor though as I've seen most boards start at $150.

I did come across this on Amazon though. While it's not a dedicated and proper Crokinole board, it seems to be a great entry level one to test the waters.

u/adamdavenport · 3 pointsr/discgolf

I want to love it. Aeriobie’s flying rings are absolutely mind boggling.

u/Lynolis · 3 pointsr/dogs

I use a frisbee made by aerobie that is a ring type, the outer edges are rubber but the inner ring that gives the frisbee its shape is made of hard plastic. They aren't the most durable frisbee but my dogs use them daily and it stands up to their chewing and quick games of tug with it for about 2-3 months before needing replaced.

Chuck-it makes several types of fabric frisbees, but I've never used them so I don't know how well they would hold up.

u/tmangan2 · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Same reasons as everyone else.

I keep things in order with H-bands around during some of the boxes where the lids aren't very snug. [H-bands] (Http://

I either bag components or I've been using Ultra Pro two part card cases for pieces. I like the ease of handing a player a container where they can use the bottom and top to keep components organized during play. [Ultra Pro card cases] (

You can get Insteps for $100 or less or any variation of a portable basket for just over a hundred... I have a skill shot and though its smaller than a regular basket after practicing 35 footers on that I feel like I could park a bus in a regular basket.

u/DiscGolfChris · 3 pointsr/discgolf

I've ordered a couple Pacific Outdoors practice targets. Main advantages are the low cost ($100) relative to other baskets and they're closer to PDGA dimensions than a lot of other practice baskets. Downside is they only come in on color (red), only have one set of chains and while they are portable they're completely metal so more difficult to move around than something like a Skillshot. You can find it on amazon:

  • Bug spray
  • drink coozy
  • towel that clips onto his bag
  • socks that let your feet breathe but keep your ankles protected
  • make him a shirt that says something about disc golf
  • a new mini disc is always fun
  • if he doesn't have a basket at home, this link and this link are good places to start

    Or the next time you two are out on a date, ask him to show you some discs at a sporting goods store that he has his eye on. Or try these websites:

  • Marshall Street
  • Gotta Go Gotta Throw
  • Disc Golf World
  • Innova
  • Flywood Discs

    Marshall Street is where you're going to get the most bang for your buck. I added Flywood there on the end because that's one of my dream discs to own, just because the idea of a wooden frisbee gives me shivers and tingles.
u/Theyellowtoaster · 3 pointsr/discgolf

I went ahead and bought this:

Innova DX Disc Golf Set (3-Disc) (Colors may vary)

it seemed like the cheapest thing that would be okay. Should that be okay?

u/loupgarou21 · 3 pointsr/discgolf

This is what I started with:

Innova starter set. It comes with a putter, a mid-range and a fairway driver, definitely enough to get started with, and is $22 on Amazon.

u/TCF_DoNotPassGo · 3 pointsr/discgolf

I think that could work well for you. Aviar is a great putter (what I started with); Shark I've never used but seems like it would be good as a disc you know will finish left; Leopard I still use a lot.

If not, I also would second getting an Aviar and a Champ Mako3. I bought a couple Mako3s when starting and used them exclusively for a couple months. I still play 2 disc rounds with them from time to time to practice form and shaping.

u/koolhandluc · 3 pointsr/AskMen

It doesn't have to be. You can play an adequate game of casual disc golf with a starter kit.

Sure, it's easy to go overboard, build a huge disc collection, and become neurotic about selecting the best disc for every shot.

u/brandedtoe · 3 pointsr/boardgames

If you want something that big loo
k at poker surfaces.

Edit: I cannot recommend playing with poker chips enough as well. Just keep a set of Nexgen chips to replace all of those fiddly cardboard coins.

u/PolyPill · 3 pointsr/discgolf suggests a Valkyrie, Roc, and Aviar for 3 discs. They do use Amazon Pay but you can't use a gift card for that, which is why I assume you specify Amazon.

The problem with buying a set is they're just going to give you what ever they have but it will be cheaper than buying individually.

This Innova Set is decent, The TeeBird is my favorite Innova fairway drive and one of the best all around discs and it has a recommended Roc. I can't say anything about the Rhino but I think when you're starting out putters don't matter much. A similar Innoa Set This one is Leopard, Roc, and Aviar. So maybe this is a little safer as most players will agree that Roc and Aviar are solid discs. Then maybe throw in a GStar Valkyrie and you're just over $40 but you've got some solid discs.

This set of 4 Discraft goes right up to your budget but there's no listing of discs so it's a gamble. In the photo you see a Nuke which is a horrible disc for beginners.

This DGA set Is notable because they're all 150 class discs. Lighter discs can be good for absolute beginners but if you did play a little and can throw then light discs might be more of a burden. It all depends on your arm speed, I'd probably suggest this more for women and children. The Squall is a great beginner mid and the Reef is a solid putter. In normal plastic I'd say the Rogue is not good for beginners but being so light it might work.

u/malloc64 · 3 pointsr/boardgames

Look for poker surfaces.
This one is decent quality.

u/DeputyWicked · 3 pointsr/Darts

You guys are a bad influence lol. I had to order a set and get in on this deal. I got in on the soft tip 4 packs but not the steel tip ones so thanks for the info!

RE: The four packs on Amazon from Red Dragon

Mine arrived a few minutes ago as I was leaving the house. Here is what I recieved.. I'd bought two sets.

Three identical pairs and then the two on the left. I won't be able to get them weighed and assembled until tomorrow.

u/zoopaflack · 3 pointsr/discgolf

I have the grip clone bag $100 on amazon, and it is not bad at all. Right now grip is having a sale and it looks like B15's are only 154 shipped, so spending the extra $54 might not be a bad idea to get the actual thing from them. The only real difference I see, is the flap has a pocket that can hold a disc, and it comes with a rain fly, but doesn't have the towel clips. I have had mine since March and it seems to hold up well, and can even be loaded down with a decent number of discs. If it fits in your budget, I saw go for the real thing, reputable company with a warranty, and you know it will be well made. There are so many bags out now hope this helps in decision.

u/Toasterss · 3 pointsr/MMA

$50 on Amazon

u/unix04 · 3 pointsr/tabletennis

This is just a bit above your budget, but it's a very good allround bat that can be used for defensive play:

It will be hard to find something better at that price (or less) unless you look for deals on blade/rubber and assemble it yourself.

u/fundefined1 · 3 pointsr/tabletennis

Jumping from a very basic paddle like the Killerspin Jet200 to a custom made one probably isn't worth it; especially a custom defensive one which you may not like.

Try out a beginner's setup first like this Palio 2 star racket:

Same product on Amazon:

u/RWTD_Burn · 3 pointsr/Arcade1Up

Remember with the 12 in 1 he will also need the interface board (which adds another $12 to the cost) if he only plans to replace the spinner. I bought the 12 in 1 mostly for Tempest as well and the Thunderstick was well worth the money spent. I've replaced the buttons, trackball, and spinner and the spinner is easily my favorite addition.


Interface board:

u/cursedxistence · 3 pointsr/Arcade1Up

Yeah they are going to be a constant item being sold, they just keep selling out really fast. They've been selling them on Amazon in batches of 500 and they're selling out in an hour or two so just keep checking.

For the connoisseur, chips like this will be obviously cheap and inferior. However, they will be highly functional.

If you want a really nice feel, you can get more and more expensive. If $50 is your budget, you'll be happy with chips like these.

u/nvflip · 2 pointsr/poker

How much do u want to spend on chips? I bought a set from Claysmith chips for my home game. You can see the pic on this sub's banner.

My Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is this disc golf goal

I want it because I would love to set up disc golf in my back yard or when I want to go out with friends.

If I never got it I would not be surprised. Its really just a fun item with no real requirement of ownership.

Thanks for the fun contest :)

u/ExcuseMyTriceratops · 2 pointsr/discgolf

I've got this in my backyard. I don't particularly need it to be super portable - I prefer it stand up to weather. For $100 shipped, I'd say it's a steal.

u/Deadpressed · 2 pointsr/discgolf

I keep the blue one in my car (actually threw on my lunch break for the first time just a bit ago), other is portable but requires more space and few more steps to assemble. I keep the red one assembled out back, and hide it in the trees when I'm done. Innova is s more narrow shot, the chains on The Pacific Outdoors' unit below throws discs out every once in a while, but is great for practice.

Get a basket and practice. Start close and move out as you make them, closer as you miss them. As long as you have solid fundamentals, it's just a confidence thing and you need to get your mojo back.

Edit: I got this basket a few weeks ago, it's cheap and 'close enough' to the real thing for me to notice improvement already.

u/PigFarmington · 2 pointsr/discgolf

Funny story. My mom got it for my brother's kids. Some reason my (obviously anal parent with control issues) brother won't allow his kids to play disc golf. They're 10. and 8 yo. I don't know why... The worst part is, he has a disc golf course in his backyard. That's not an exaggeration, look at the hole #7 picture: The house with the white fence is his!

I guess after you've seen his house, you can tell what ideologies he probably subscribes to...

Anyway, he rejected it... I...The one who actually plays disc golf got it instead. This is it: just different colors.

CCDG has a great instructional video about how to use them from top pros.

Alternatively, go to and try to build your own starter pack. would be my suggestions bases on what they have atm. True starter packs will be more likely to be 150g, but since you are used to ultimate you will be used to 175g-ish discs. Aero and Shark will be good transitions from lids to discs, and Leopard is in a slightly better plastic because you will want to hold onto it longer.

u/amazinghorse24 · 2 pointsr/sports

Head on over to /r/discgolf! You can get a starter set for ~20$


Download an app called uDisc to see where your local courses are! They are everywhere and most of them are free to play. If you really start getting into it, check out the to find tournaments and leagues. If you want to learn some basics check out Danny Lindahl on Youtube.


I love disc golf and love spreading the word about it. It's very cheap compared to ball golf and you can play it year-round. I've met so many nice people and made quite a few friends through the sport. If you have any questions feel free to PM me!

u/rIse_four_ten_ten · 2 pointsr/discgolf

All the time at like Sport Chalet or Sports Authority or Dick's Sporting Goods. They have starter boxes of like a driver, mid and putt. Usually all DX plastic, but hey it's for starters. This is like the one I see at the most places

u/H8rade · 2 pointsr/Frugal

Innova sells starter kits like this one for about $30. Driver, midrange, putter.

Some courses, especially with water, will have a guy sitting in the parking lot selling used discs that he finds. $5-7 usually. Or if you have a buddy who plays and he's not a dick, he'll probably give you a disc.

u/1-Down · 2 pointsr/discgolf

Amazon, Walmart, and some of the other big box stores sell them online.

In-person purchases are trickier. I've had luck with internet searching local disc golf stores but there are definitely areas where they really don't exist. Party stores, gas stations, media stores - it's weird who sells them and who doesn't.

Premium discs run about $15 a pop. Base discs around $8. There is a very real difference in the quality of the plastics here. A lot of people recommend DX plastic to start with because it's cheaper and easier to throw. Personally I found they went to crap waaaaay too quickly - big gouges and scrapes pretty much from the start.

This is the gold standard for starting:

Personally I like this set more from a mold stand-point (although the Escape is probably fast for a beginner).

This set is pricier, but you'll use it forever. Plastic is darn near indestructible and they are useful discs at several play levels - you'll need an arm for the volt though.

Personally though, I'd probably piecemeal one together for a starter kit. A 175g Judge Classic, 170+ E-Mac Truth, 170+ Neutron Switch or Lucid River, and then a light 150g driver like an Opto Air Diamond maybe.

u/I-Chase-Vans · 2 pointsr/discgolf

u/Ravenala · 2 pointsr/boardgames

We bought this one ( a while ago and enjoy it. We only use it for a few things and mostly prefer to riffle shuffle but once in a while we want more precision (for whatever reason) and pull that puppy out. Good quality and no issues with card bending or creasing. Crank works great and goes nice and quick!

u/rolandblais · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I have limited mobility in my right hand, so I use a manual crank shuffler as well, except when I play Onirim - it's always solo so I'll washing machine the deck first, then hindu shuffle the deck during play.

The shuffler doesn't save time, as noted by pimaniac - in fact I think it takes longer - I'll do a 7x shuffle hoping that it randomizes enough. It does, but I think that it also will pass pairs a lot more than a riffle shuffle by hand. That's anecdotal though, I've got no data to back that up :-)

u/Truck-Nutz · 2 pointsr/discgolf

u/Serena_Altschul · 2 pointsr/boardgames

I'm in the same boat: 50 Amazon bucks burning a hole in my pocket. But, I'm about 99% certain that I'm going to buy a neoprene play mat that fits my entire game table.

If you've never played on a play mat or an upholstered game table, it makes a huge difference. When you try to pick up a card or chit from a smooth, hard tabletop, you often end up either using your fingernails or sliding the cards off of the table. This isn't terribly detrimental, but it can lead to biffed corners/edges and scratch up your card backs. When you play on a piece of medium density foam, the cards still slide around just fine. But, when you pick them up, you simply press down slightly along one site of the cards and the other side springs up and is easy to scoop up.

Not a game, doesn't fit into your guidelines at all, but something nice that will make gaming more comfortable and allow you to take better care of your cards.

u/nick_the_giant · 2 pointsr/discgolf

I have purchased this bag recently and I love it. My friend got an upper park designs bag around the same time and I believe mine is just as durable as his will be years from now. Many reviews on the product attest to its durability. It super cheap (which is what I needed cause I'm a college student), but it doesn't come with cheap material in my opinion. It's only $99 so it's a win win to me.

I just copy pasted this from the last time I told someone about this bag. I have it and still love it ~7 months now

u/slytree · 2 pointsr/discgolf

Check out the throwback sack, the reviews look great. I want one.

u/Tetriside · 2 pointsr/discgolf

I don't know much about the quality, but the Throwback Sports bags have coolers.

The old version of backpack used the entire main compartment. The newer one has insulated side pockets. There's also a smaller bag with less disc storage.

u/xJonjey · 2 pointsr/discgolf

I recently got my dad a Throwback Sack and it's honestly the highest quality bag I've ever had my hands on. Much nicer than my backpack. This thing has an insulated cooler pocket that's big enough to hold 4 bottles of water with 2 ice packs, keeps them ice cold. Has lots of disc space, putter pocket in the front, mini pocket on the side with a phone pocket and a bottle holder pocket that has a good drawstring and is big enough for a big gatorade bottle. The strap is strong with very good padding, and the two things that set this bag over the top for me were: The back of the bag, where it rests against your body when you're walking the course, has very thick mesh padding. And the second thing is that the bottom of the bag has the biggest rubber feet I've seen on a bag.

Super big fan, and their a newer company so I think they deserve all the shoutouts they can get right now. Currently the bag is on sale for $50, the normal price is $80 and the quality of the construction is worth that, so for $50 it's an absolutely insane deal.

Use the ultra pro 25 card holders for the tokens. as for the units you just need to find some nice fitting plastic containers and then cut up the original insert.

if you do this you can just go to target or somewhere to buy the containers.

Thank you! And all the faction tokens are in 25-card deck boxes. I'm pretty sure I used these.

u/oppedj02 · 1 pointr/boardgames

I don't sleeve them. The cards are pretty good quality and you aren't shuffling them, so I didn't feel it was necessary to sleeve them.

I have each fighter's cards, standee and token in its own clear plastic Ultra-pro card box (the slim ones: They fit everything perfectly and everything fits well in the box that way. Regular deck boxes, while good are just a little too big. Although you could use them for some of the extra tokens and such.

I also believe there is a file for tuckboxes on BGG that you can print and make for every fighter. That was a little too much work for me, to be honest. But they're pretty cool if you want to spend the time doing that.

Well I don't know anything about disc golf in Australia, but I'm sure it's around and I would think you could find some discs. Do you have any discs yet? If not, the Innova Starter Set is usually the way to go for beginners. It has a putter, a midrange, and a fairway driver; all of which are versatile discs that are all a beginner really needs for your first couple months of disc golf.

u/SecretAgentX9 · 1 pointr/discgolf

Innova starter pack is a great place to 'start'. Should be around $30. Don't buy more discs until you know a lot more. This subreddit is a great resource. As others have said, read the stuff at the right.

You can order on Amazon here:

Otherwise, please support your local disc store.

u/RangerRick26 · 1 pointr/discgolf

I'm assuming you bought this set back then. For a forehand(flick) throw I would pick up an Innova Orc, preferably one in Champion plastic. This is the first disc I owned and I would get beautiful s-curves out of my flick. here is a link to one. Champion plastic is super durable and will not get destroyed by hitting trees. Read up on some of the discs on that site I linked too, it has some decent insight on which discs do what.

u/Vindictus7 · 1 pointr/discgolf

I just started playing a few months ago and bought the DX Innova beginner set (link here). Highly recommend it. I started out throwing just the putter & midrange, and then worked my way up to the fairway driver. The DX plastic is really fine for beginners. I actually like it. Not afraid to beat it up since they are my first discs. Now that I have worked on my form and have my style down, I can choose specific discs to add to my bag.

Hey, welcome to the sport... I started four months ago and love it! I'm in central jersey.

I highly, highly recommend the dx innova starter pack on Amazon. It has perfect discs for beginners.

If you are in north jersey you should check out the course at Rutgers, oldest course in the country and nice short holes for beginners.

You'll lose discs, it's part of the game but when you are starting out and can't throw that far it shouldn't be so bad.

Make sure you get the right weight range. If you're too light you won't be able to fully compress the springs for max height. If you're too heavy they'll bottom out which limits height and doesn't feel good.

Sorry to see people aren’t bothering to answer your question. I purchased a manual shuffler like this:

The price is inflated over what I paid, so I’d shop around, but what I like about it is that it’s pretty quick and since you’re cranking it by hand, you can feel it jam and stop without damaging the cards.

I’ve owned this for nearly seven years and never damaged a card or the machine. I prefer this to sleeving because, well, I don’t want to sleeve cards in a bunch of games I own when I can use this!

Didn't read all the comments but wanted to leave my $0.02.

I recommend the Innova Champion starter pack.

It gets you 3 beginner friendly discs that are also in a premium plastic.

Couple pros to this over the DX set...

  1. Nicer plastic and only costs a few bucks more than the SX set
  2. These discs will last substantially longer than DX
  3. Being a beginner, you ARE gonna hit trees. Champ plastic will be infinitely more durable than DX where one good tree hit on a drive could essentially ruin the disc

    The champ set should come with an Aviar, Panther, and Valkyrie, all of which are good beginner friendly discs.
u/CherryDrank · 1 pointr/discgolf

It depends on where you are playing. If losing discs is not a concern, I'd get the Champion version of the starter set. They will last longer especially if you hit as many trees as I do. The DX set is also a good set, however, hit a few trees and they start to wear quick.

Cheap and cheerful :)

u/applepiebed · 1 pointr/tabletennis

If there was anyway you could stretch to the Palio Expert 2 at $39.95 it would make a huge difference to someone learning the game. It's basically the cheapest "proper" bat available on amazon. Plus the rubbers are incredibly hard wearing so will last for ages and can take a beating.


But if it's for a school club I would reach out to some of the well known shops and see if they can cut you a deal/give you some stuff for free. Megaspin might be worth a shot. I'm in the UK, so not much help on that side of things.

u/rightwhereithurtz · 1 pointr/tabletennis

I'm a little confused as to whether it has 2 carbon layers myself, although it states it's an all wood blade if you look at the picture from the amazon site I bought it on, you can see the black layers. If not carbon, what are they? The paddle they sent me also has a mauve/purple sponge on the black rubber and a slightly thinner (guessing 2mm) thick yellow sponge on the slower red rubber side. Not shown or mentioned in the sales blurb.

Have you ever played with one? Or maybe you got taken-in like me, by its sales/marketing pitch. I've played over 500hrs with it over the space of around 30mnths, tried many other paddles and I can truthfully say it is definitely not a beginner bat.

Perhaps you can explain to me what the Palio Expert properties are and what it has that makes this bat a slow controllable beginner bat, maybe comparing its weight, number of plies, characteristics of blade ie, types and thickness of its plywood or anything that can be relied upon to make (comparable to a budget fast blade) it one of the slowest blades available.

Same with its CJ8000 rubbers, which incidentally come in 3 different thicknesses I believe, with even more variations of sponge thickness and hardness. Can you tell me with absolute certainty that with these rubbers on that blade, will give a beginner a realistic chance to have good control? because it won't.

u/ArugulaZ · 1 pointr/retrogaming

I'd love to have a spinner too, but regrettably, the only way to go about this is to roll your own with real arcade parts, or a reasonable facsimile.

That costs over sixty dollars, plus a wooden container and whatever buttons you'll need to complete the build. It's annoying, but the MacGyver'ed solutions I've attempted have been unsatisfactory at best.

It's probably going to be the same deal with a twin stick, but that may not cost as much. I imagine two arcade sticks, a few buttons, and an encoder (along with another box) would do the trick. Maybe disassemble an old arcade stick from Hori or MadCatz, take out most of the buttons and replace them with a second stick, and wire up the action buttons (triangle, cross, square, blue diamond, purple horseshoe, et al) to the second stick for best results.

u/Nick1W · 1 pointr/Arcade1Up

Forgive me for repeating anything you may already know.

For the buttons and joystick, you need a USB encoder. This or similar:

Connect the buttons and joystick to the encoder, connect the encoder to the pi through USB. When you set up retropie, you will be prompted to assign each button for the pi interface.

For the GRS spinner and trackball, you will also need the GRS "12-in1 board".

The GRS spinner and trackball are both designed to plug directly into the stock Arcade1Up hardware. There is no USB connection on those devices. The 12-in-1 board gives you that USB connection. Plug the Spinner into the "P1" port on the 12-in-1 board. Plug the Trackball into the "P2 port". Use the micro USB port on the board to connect to a USB port on the pi.

The pi will recognize the spinner and trackball as a mouse - both devices will be interpreted as the same mouse input. But, that should already be set up to control left/right/up/down movements in any emulator. (Left/right only for the spinner, of course). So, you can jump right into centipede, or tempest or whatever you're using them for.

You may need to adjust the sensitivity of the trackball and/or spinner in each game individually until you get the right performance. There are threads about that on this sub. Here's one:

In that thread, you can ignore where it says to change the speed. As is clarified later in the thread, the speed settings don't matter - only sensitivity.
