Saw this game at MGM. Didn't quite understand it. Played a few hands and lost them all.

Basically, that game is a blackjack game, but one black king was preprinted at the table for each player. The players only got one card and got to add that to the 10 already on board.

The dealer had that king also, and got one card only as well.

There was a bunch of other rules, which I didn't understand. I found no description of that game whatsoever from the internet. Seemed to be a game with a high house edge; I regret playing it.

I have not heard of it either. I'll check it out my next trip out that way.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Found the brochure from my travel book. I scanned it. How can I put it into the board?

So there was no hitting/standing/busting? It was just one card each????

Why not just play Casino War?

It has hitting/standing/busting.. however it had a rule which says if the dealer has an ace of spades it's an automatic push for all blackjacks (and a loss to everything else), and if the dealer has an ace which is not a spade and the player has an ace of spades it is paid 2:1, plus a few arcane rules which I didn't quite understand.

I have enough trouble playing games I understand. It sounds like this is casino war with an automatic 10 kicker for everyone.

I think he said you only "get one card" meaning you don't get two to start your hand like normal. Not that the K and your one card is your final hand. The fact that the dealer always has a ten showing seems to make it that you'd hit every 2-6 and stand every 7-10. Not too interesting, unless both dealer cards are exposed. That would be interesting. Would Double Exposure be worth it (without pushes losing) if the dealer (and you) were assured of a ten every time?

First, you'd have to get it on the internet somewhere. Most ISPs offer web storage. Put it there, then use [img=url] to post it.

Personally, I have my own website, so I put my images on a side directory, and reference those.

I agree. Very simple / boring strategy - unless the dealer shows his other card.

Either way, I think I'd pass...

This would seem like a player advantage rule to me. The rule when the dealer has a ace of spades is the same outcome as traditional blackjack. But when the player gets the spade he gets paid out more than traditional b/j, plus the player wins the tie.

You can email it to me and I can post it for you. miplet@yahoo.com
This game was analyzed by some people on the greenchip message board of bj21.com. You have to have a paid subscription to read it, so I won't be posting their analyis. I'm only partway done with mine.
