I'm always appreciative of suggestions. I also agree that explanation of game rules are no place for adjectives. That said, can you be more specific about anything you find objectionable. It looks like my wording of the card values is the same as yours, except I used "face cards" and you used "picture."

Maybe I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, so can you give me a specific rule you find is too adjective-laden, and what you would recommend in its stead, and I'll be happy to consider it.

Thank you.



Sorry, my post was meant to address the excessively verbose text on the game-inventors' website, not any post in this thread or your brand new page which I thought was quite good.

Note: Face card is indeed a better term than picture card.

Haven't looked at the Wizard page yet, but pip 1-10 face value is incorrect if aces are always 11. maybe pip 2-10?

Thanks, I'm not even good at proofreading when I am sober!

Thank you. Actually, I think whoever backed the Revel may not have been that sharp.

As if a couple weeks ago I can confirm that payable is correct- not sure if anything changed since end of April

Just finished my own page on Casino Over Under. In all honesty, I don't break any new ground on it. However, please have a look anyway. As always, I welcome all comments, questions, and especially corrections.

Thank you.



Wiz, step 3 in your game-play instructions may have a problem. As I understand it, Kobal says the player is never required to place a Bonus bet, but, if placed, the Bonus bet must equal the Ante bet. Your step 3 seems to suggest the player may omit the Ante ("Play starts with the player making an Ante and/or Bonus wager. ")

Does this improve your text? "Play starts with the player making an Ante wager. In addition, the player may bet an amount equal to the Ante wager on the optional Bonus wager."

Or, am I overlooking something on what has been presented to us as a very simple, easy-to-play game?
