...Revised solution below...

Hi Babs, I agree it works, but did you see my assumption above?

I did see that, but I'm not sure that assumption is inherent in Gialmere's wording. So perhaps that language should be added to refine his puzzle into a single, unique correct answer. As it stands, I believe you and I are both correct.

But of course, I could be wrong. :)

I have assumed position 1 is not considered one round from position 8.

The logic I used started with looking at poker games and BJ games, called P and B here...
R2: could be (starting any where)
-P-B-P-B (have P and B alternate)
-P-P-BB- (have PPBB, PP can't be adjacent, the B's can be in any two of last four positions)
-P-P-B-B
-P-P--BB

R3: cannot be -P-B-P-B or -P-P-B-B as R needs to be opposite one of the B's (Sp21)
R3: gives R between the poker tables,
-PRP-?B? where one of the ? is a Blackjack

R1: gives Craps one posn clockwise from 3CP.
This gives - UTH R 3CP Craps ? Sp21 ? where either ? is a BJ.

R1: Craps ? Sp21, the ? cannot be Big6.

R4: merely says that Sic Bo shall be in position 5, with everything else shuffled round. Thus I don't know whether this says that 3CP can't be in poisition 8 with Craps in position 1. If so this gives a unique solution...
- UTH R 3CP Craps ? Sp21 SicBo (where 3CP is at position1 and Craps at position 2)

R2:
Big6 UTH R 3CP Craps SF21 Sp21 SicBo shuffled so SicBo is in position 5.

Assuming 8 and 1 isn't allowed, I got
1 = 3CP (Poker)
2 = Craps
3 = Super Fun 21 (BJ)
4 = Spanish 21 (BJ)
5 = Sic Bo
6 = Big 6
7 = UTH (Poker)
8 = Roulette
I got the positions of Sic Bo and Big 6 could be interchanged and everything shuffled one position if Craps could be in position 1 with 3CP in position 8. Hence the above question and assumption to get a unique answer.

Wow CP! Impressive. I think you're a few levels above me in this arena and would encourage you to make a puzzle of your own. (Just don't expect me to solve it.) Anyways, I considered spots 8 and 1 to be adjacent and will have to work my wording. So, along with BBB...

Table #1=Craps
Table #2=superfun 21
Table #3=Spanish 21
Table #4=Big 6 wheel
Table #5= Sic bo
Table #6=UTH
Table #7=roulette
Table #8=3CP

Ding!! Ding!! We have two winners!!

Still messing around. This one is slightly more difficult...

At the WOV Spring Fling, GWAE, Pokergrinder, Drich, Axlewolf and Darkoz all agreed to a contest. Each of them would gamble for an hour with each on a different game: Craps, Blackjack, Roulette, Video Poker and Slots. The player accumulating the most money during the allotted time wins the contest. You're trying to listen to the end results on a live podcast but, unfortunately, the audio is terrible. You can hear that the final cash totals were \$1000, \$800, \$600, \$400 and \$200 but the audio is mostly garbled. Can you determine who won what amount playing which game from what you could make out?

1) Neither Axelwolf nor Pokergrinder won the top amount, but one of them played slots.

2) Pokergrinder, Drich and the craps player are now going for drinks with the blackjack player who came in 2nd place.

3) The video poker player, along with the last place player both have names that start with the same letter.

4) GWAE did not play roulette, but the player who did didn't come in 3rd or last.

5) Axelwolf won \$600.

The Order: Name/Amount Won/ Game Played
1st:
2nd:
3rd:
4th:
5th:

Hopefully this one works out.

The Order: Name/Amount Won/ Game Played
1st: Drich/1000/Video Poker
2nd: GWAE/800/Blackjack
3rd: Axelwolf/600/Slots
4th: PokerGrinder/400/Roulette
5th: DarkOz/200/Craps

That was tricky, Gialmere. Good problem. I thought at first it was unsolvable, but I think I found the path.

You would get fired pretty quickly with only 2 BJ tables.

You're right, but I'm not sure why that is. Every time I'm in a casino in vegas, there are a dozen empty bj tables, one full uth table, one full pgp table, and people milling around watching those games and waiting to play.

Now that you mention it, I was one of the people milling around the full PGP table while staring at all the empty blackjack tables.
