Everything is cash, whatever you win you pick it up and pay at the table.

never saw anyone pay with a check yet,oh no that means I can buy more than I planned on buying.

Aww I remember having a pet mantid for the longest time (almost a year) until she laid her eggs and sadly passed on. I re-attached the eggs in my backyard and left it. Never did see any babies after that though .

Anybody know where I could find/catch mantids? I would love to have another, I LOVE BUGS!!!
