Game is updated to correctly follow the one trade card allows two places and no trade card awards three places.

A nice win.

Still playing this.

Question: Trades are voluntary but are placements always mandatory?

Also, I see on your website that the game can be played on a 5x5 grid with hands scored both vertically and horizontally. Now THAT would be intense.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Gialmere,

Glad you are still playing it. Just make sure you refresh your browser to make sure you have the most recent update.

You are correct. Trades are totally voluntary whereas placements are mandatory.

My original idea started with the 5x5 matrix, but with so many things to look at the game became cluttered and more complicated. The 5x3 allows the game to be played quicker and limiting the paylines to only the horizontal lines made it easier for the player. In the very near future, we will be looking at use a 3x3 grid with the trade N' place concept for a three card poker game. I think this would be a ton of fun because we would utilize 6 hands (horizontal and vertical). I'm not sure what that would do to the the math or whether or not players would enjoy it. My first thought would be to allow one trade with one place, or two places for the three card game.

Just played it for quite a bit. Up a few dollars after maybe an hour? I find it pretty easy to figure out what to do. Occasionally I have to go through a few permutations. But my brain works that way.
I can see 'average Joe' being overwhelmed by many of the necessary decisions. I mean, realize how few BJ players can even play basic strategy. Butttttt..... I think 'average Joe' won't realize how poorly he is playing and may like the game.

One positive is that it is a rare hand that you don't at least win some of your bet back. Seems like a slow bleed until you hit 4 of a kind.

I'd play it if I need to accumulate points.....

I have been having a blast playing it. It's lots of fun - the kind of game I enjoy.

I do find that I constantly am thinking about what the optimal trade is, only to finally realize that its a Place-3 round. Wasted time -for me and for the casino.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

This is on the demo game, but I wanted to show it off anyway.

Thanks for your feedback SOOPOO.

I think after playing a few hours so far, the game seems to stay right around a break even point. Granted it is only a small sample size, it seems to be the trend so far.

I agree with your point that there are not many times where you don't win something. It also appears that when trying to build your hand, the full house seems to be very common.

I have found this game most addictive, but I fear it plays too slowly for casinos.

Did have an interesting deal:


Final result was interesting too...

Nice looking deal! Thanks for sharing!!

I agree with the statement that it plays slow. I thought the increased wager to play the game could help offset the slow game play. Maybe once we adjust the math it will bump the wager up a little to help more.

I do think the player speeds up their play the more the become familiar with the game and what they need to do.
