I saw my third field trial game in a week yesterday at the Gold Coast. It is called Chinese War. Given the tensions in the straight of Taiwan, and our current isolationist "America first" stance, I think we may be talking about a real Chinese war pretty soon. For now, we can talk about this new card game. For what I think is supposed to be a simple game of picking a Tiger or Dragon, it is rather hard to explain. It took me about 30 minutes of playing to understand all seven bets. At least I hope I understand them correctly. So, please see my new page on...

Chinese War

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

The question for the poll is which statements do you agree with (multiple votes allowed)?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

If it took the Wizard half an hour to figure it out, what chance do mere mortals have? I'll pass...

Did anyone fight about the different Ace rules from the base game to the war bet? That one should be fun if it comes up with a lot of money on the side wager....

I saw you express that the Ace is high or low for all bets but the war bets, but you may want to specify that its only high for the war bet...

It didn't help that the dealer spoke extremely poor English and I didn't have my glasses to read the rack card, which uses a very small font. Otherwise, with a good dealer and good eyes I could have picked it up in 15 minutes.

I was the only player there. Yes, I agree that it is confusing that for some bets aces are scored as in blackjack and as in poker for others.

So, when a Tie occurs, which one wins, Dragon or Tiger? :-)))

I was just joking, but the real answer is the house. Ties lose in this game, unless you bet it.

Do you think it is possible to gain an edge by tracking the 8's then cashing in on the side bet? There's alot of decks in the shoe.
