It's a great box to start out on- solid, dependable and will still be going strong in many years time.

My Pokerwork is now over 25 years old and still performs brilliantly, even though a few other boxes have moved in to the house subsequently.

So a word of advice - in the years to come, when you get seduced by sexy boxes from around the world, you are allowed to succumb (we all do!), but do not trade in your Pokerwork! You will regret it.

And if you play for morris, you will find few to equal it!

Have great fun with it.


PS Your parents will come to realise what a great present it was - it just takes a few years  :)

Andy is right. Never get rid of your pokerwork - not that you're going to have any thoughts about doing that at the moment!  What a great Christmas present. If your parents complain, remind them that you could have taken up the drums instead.....

I have started on the pokerwork as well. It is my first and only melodeon.

P.S I have taken up the drums AND the melodeon, imagine how my parents fell!
