Thanks for letting us know. I'll have to check it out.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Does Merrill Heatter get a cut? He may have a trademark on card games using the word "gambit."

For those of you who missed that one, he created a blackjack-based TV game show called Gambit that ran on CBS for a few years in the 1970s (it premiered the same day as The Price is Right and The Joker's Wild); a few years after CBS cancelled it, NBC brought it back, moved it to Las Vegas, and called it Las Vegas Gambit. GSN had a tweaked version, still produced by Heatter, called Catch-21.

If I have 88 and another player has 66, and a 6 comes out, I'm grabbing that card (most likely). Trying to make the best of your own hand isn't necessarily optimal, I don't think. I'd have to look at the rules some more, but I think you could do quite well with some collusion and common sense.

Electronic version? Are you saying it's completely electronic?

I'm staying at PHo when I come for the 360 Vegas Vacation Memorial Day. If it's still there, I'll bring some people to try it...
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Not exactly sure how to post pictures, but yes it is a completely electronic (touch screen instead of big red buttons) version of what was at cutting edge.

Gambit or Gamblit? This one has the "L".

This looks like the 4 person version vs. the 6 person version with a live dealer which was what won the TG Conference in November.
