One of my viewers alerted me to a new game game titled bACEball, being played at the Star City in Sydney. It is a simple game of luck roughly modeled on baseball. Please click the link and let me know what you think.

As always, I welcome questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you place bACEball? Multiple votes allowed.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I'm sure this is going to be highly countable If dealt from a shoe.

No doubt about it. About the most countable game I've ever seen. You might even talk about it at the table and it will look you're talking about baseball.

Not sure what that last sentence is trying to say.

You're right. Thanks for the correction.

So does the house edge come from the fact that 3 face cards is an auto lose for the player and near auto win for the dealer? Otherwise I see no edge
