I remember a movie with a casino game called "Sorry, You Lose". People would come up to the table and put money down, then the dealer would take it and say, "Sorry, you lose".

In college we had a drinking game called "You Drink". The game consisted of pointing to someone else and saying... well, I'll let you guess.

" Boy, if War can find a niche, there has got to be a way "Crazy 8" or "Go Fish" can be turned into moneymakers..." About 10 years in Blackhawk there was a side bet on BJ called Go Fish. It seemed asinine. You get a BJ with side bet of $1, dealer does not have a BJ,
Dealer shuffles up a special GO Fish Desk. Somehow it decides to count down 2 , 2 , or 4 cards. Then you got payoffs determined by order of next 3 , 4, or 5 Cards. I asked for the rules just as a souvenir They had none LOL

Will do a patent search and post here later.

I've seen a few online casinos offering Rock, Paper, Scissors. Sometimes they give the name in Japanese, for some reason, but include images of the hand gestures so that you know what it is.

The fact that online casinos offer games like Rock, Paper, Scissors but never, ever Pai Gow tiles or Fan Tan (even at online casinos targeting the Chinese, like Dafa888) only underscores how far away they've moved from the traditional casino model.

Fan Tan is a game in Macau (described on wizard's site) where you bet on the number of beads (technically the remainder mod 4) i.e. a number 0/4 1 2 or 3. And amazingly when I saw it the tables were quite busy.

I bet somewhere there's a very silly simple game that's just waiting to be discovered that will prove to become popular is casinos.

Well, baccarat is pretty much betting on the flip of a (slightly biased) coin.

"Rock, Scissors, Paper" ... What cracked me up about the scene in the movie is that the table of players was full.

Yeah, but did you notice the other thing?

The dealer called the hand: "Dealer has 'Rock', pay 'Paper'." He didn't say anything about players with 'Rock' being a push, or 'Scissors' losing.

Considering the way that casino was operating, the assumption is they both lose. That's a HUGE house advantage game!
