The small gaps between the floor boards is the one clue that it's not laminate flooring. It's also an indication that the humidity is low (wood shrinks slightly).

I love hardwood floors. Have them through the entire house except for the kitchen which has wood laminate flooring (stopgap solution) over vinyl flooring. The previous owners had white carpet in the kitchen which I took up. Why would anyone put carpet in the kitchen? What are you an idiot?

:lol: I would be so confused if I walked into a kitchen with white carpeting.

Screw carpet. Hardwood is where it's at.

Wow. This has nothing to do with Atari but whatever. :)

Wow, carpet is bad enough, but white? Was it calico by the time you moved in?

You need a second set of paddles for proper warlords gameplay.
