I suppose I’m cheap but I have almost a full quart of Minwax Polyurethane all-in-one stain in a HONEY color…I don’t expect to ever need that color again. I now want to stain a Poker table top to a dark walnut or perhaps mahogany… the exact color is not important since there will ALWAYS be a table cloth on it except during Poker games when the entire top will come off. How do I darken the Honey colored stain?

Honey stain answered.

If it almost always has a table cloth, and the exact color is not important just use the honey.  (Most cost efficient) 
Or buy a small bit of a darker minwax  (sample can size) and mix with the honey together

Don’t hesitate, purchase the new stain, color of choice… you may want to reuse the old stain later on…
