Voted Craps. Because it's fun and it has a relatively low house edge.

Other games you play besides BJ ?????

Hell, I hardly ever even play BJ anymore.
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. 🤗

Me too. Most mature gamblers, in the experienced sense, play craps, Poker, and Pai Gow.
That is the progression as a gambling market matures.
Older Gambling markets have more dice, Poker, and Pai Gow.
In Missouri, one out of 20 tables are Pai Gow. In Las Vegas and AC, it's one out of 5 at the Cannery Group and Stations.
Did this research as a part of Pai Gow market examination.

I voted for Craps. Blackjack, Craps, and Video Poker are my games. All of them require some active participation and decision-making and have lower house edge than most other games. Baccarat seems too boring, but I might occasionally play around with mini-bacc and/or Pai Gow.

I play a lot of Pai Gow Poker and Craps when available. Pai Gow because it's slow; Craps because it's fun. 3 card / 4 card / let it ride / Carribean are carnival games and I play those only for short sessions (< 45 minutes) when I'm bored.

I don't play BJ. I tried it on my first trip, but really didn't enjoy it.

I typically play 3 card poker, PGP, VP and craps. Sometiems slots, and next time I may try roulette.

No game has the freakin' juice of craps, period, end of story.
No game has the interest, socialibility, and survivability of session than Pai Gow Poker.
No game has the community battle and espionage as poker room poker, though some players are killing this.
BJ is a great intro casino game, the best, but it's a stepping stone.
Wait until Texas Dinero and Hong Kong Poker (Five hole cards, one flop, one turn, one river) get out. Slam-bam show-down like you've never seen.
And full poker both sides Pai Gow Poker is coming. A straight with a three-of-a-kind top, or two pairs with a flush top.
Table games are alive and vibrant, a few sharp games coming...
