I'm just cranking out new pages aren't I? The latest one is 3 Card Brag. This is much the same as Three Card Poker with some terminology changes and minor rule changes. The good news is it follows the liberal pay table and the rule changes cut in favor of the player overall.

Please have a look and let me know what you think. As always, I welcome questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play 3 Card Brag?

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

NO. "Brag" is off putting and the table's not legible enough (at least in this photo).

There is a card game called brag but I have never knowingly ever seen anybody play it. I'm still hoping for a Cribbage revival. I don't know a single person here in Vegas who plays.

I play, and have for over 50 years (not that I claim any special expertise). I will be happy to give you a game any time. Could even play head to head remotely If you like, though it's not quite as much fun. Money or just for fun.

My grandpa taught me cribbage as a kid, and my grandma taught me canasta. We grew up as card playin' fools. My mom used to win her lunch money playing Honeywell engineers in Hearts nearly every day. Poker, Big Casino, Gin Rummy, Whist as kids, then Bridge in college. Skipped Old Maid for the most part when we were little, but we did play War, Slapjack, Go Fish, and s!#/ on your Neighbor a lot, too.

Might be a fun split-off thread: at what age did you learn these (list a bunch) games and how often did you play?
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I've only seen people play Poker, Gin, and Bridge on in a regular basis.

I never took the time to learn, but Bridge seems very complex.

I first saw what we now know as 3CP on the Isle of Man but it was called Brag (or Casino Brag). Back then England Wales and Scotland had strict rules on games allowed in the UK but this didn't cover the Isle of Man. I can't remember if they had the 333 rule or the sidebet.

If I can see one or more of the dealer's hole cards, yeah, I'll play it. :)

I was introduced a casino table game version of cribbage ("Casino Cribbage") by a developer not to long ago. I believe he is still attempting to gain access to a floor with it.

I've seen people with cribbage-based games at the gaming shows twice. As much as I like cribbage, not enough people know the rules to be successful as a casino game. In my opinion, the idea is dead on arrival.

The rules were very complicated. I didn't know cribbage before seeing it, and I didst now what was really going on... So I unfortunately agree...
