Yours holds a disadvantage to the many other users and readers of this forum in that it can do real damage to the opportunities made available.



What on earth does this mean. I have no idea what
you're talking about, please explain. My opinion can
cause 'real damage'? I must be one powerful fellow.
Nobody listens to me, I'm the forum buffoon, the
local curmudgeon. You give me far too much credit.

I see a different world than you, is that now a crime
in this country? Where you see rainbows and lollipops,
I see realistic outcomes and how the actual world
operates. One view causes constant disappointment,
the other, expected outcomes based on experience.

Which is more viable. (viable: capable of working successfully; feasible.)

You have nothing at stake so you say crappy things for your own reasons about people you'll never know. that can ruin chances for those who do have a stake, because industry people including dtg's of casinos who can provide pathways to new games read this forum. You alienate them and those opportunities diminish in number. Which hurts me and other game designers looking for placements. I'm lucky. I have a distribution contract. Lots of guys are out there working it on their own. As are distributors on people's behalf. Those dtg's reading probably don't know your 14k posts. They just know you insulted their customers and themselves with very little push back : so I'm pushing back.

Are you serious?? Big dumb me, sitting in MI on
my computer, has the power to make or break
the casino game designing industry with my
OPINIONS? Is this industry built of cobwebs and
fairy dust, then? I'm a nobody, a nothing, a sad
old guy who gums his soup and spouts off.

Tell me you're joking.

You've got a lot of power, Bob. How about a heads up the next time you cause the stock market to crash? :-)

You just need to fight the negativity, general casual observations not really proving anything, and just cancel your posts when you do Evenbob. You're a "but man" because your response to almost anything is, but..., but..., but..., but..., but..., but... You can choose to not live this way.

Congratulations on the game. At first, I thought it might be a license on that rather forgettable Katherine Heigl movie by the same name.

How dare someone say something (gasp!) NEGATIVE in a thread?!


It could cause a crisis of confidence that could ripple throughout the entire gaming industry! This time next week the nation's casinos will be EMPTY!


For the record, I think this game is horrible and boring. It's casino war except the dealer gets two cards instead of one. Even the biggest sucker isn't gonna fall for that long. And having the ace be a low card is insane and is going to alienate players for life who get dealt aces and play them by accident.

Now that my negative comments have doomed this game, all existing casino games, and any other potential game, what should this forum talk about? Suggestions?

I don't care whether you like the game. Nothing suits everyone. You missed my point.

I try not to let it go to my head. Me and Buzz
are taking over the gaming industry any day
now. If only Steve Wynn would take my calls..
