the title of a book is determined by the publisher, not the author.
Its the same way with the title of a casino game, the casino can call it what they want.

game revenues for short term trials are highly variable.

good luck to all who play it.



You bring up a good point. Marketing can call it whatever works for that location. It's been Shipwreck (variation), One Card Draw, OFTM, Ultimate Casino War, and Poker War. But SHFL has always acknowledged the IP is mine and scheduled royalties and paperwork accordingly. I am a big Roger Snow fan - I have found him to be a man of integrity throughout my learning process.

One for the money seems like a fun game. How much does it cost to play?

I think "Trade War" would be a good, descriptive 2-word name for it. Unfortunately it makes the game sound boring. What would the table art look like? A GDP graph? Two cargo ships firing broadsides of tariffs at each other?

The things you don't think about when you're designing a game.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Our favorite variation was "shipwreck gold". Same game, but instead of trading with the deck, a player bet equal to ante to steal either of dealer's two cards (port or starboard betting circles.). The dealer would then replace that card from the top of the deck until all players were done. It added an extra something to take one of the dealer's golden cards away. Not that you knew what they were.

It had a sea-blue felt with a shipwreck logo, pirate ship broken on a desert island, bullion spilling out the sides, and red and green bet circles for port and starboard.
