Cutting Edge 2018 just wrapped up. I believe I recorded 16 interviews there of the many independent game inventors, which we'll edit and release as we can.

I'd like to congratulate the award winners this year, all of whom I have some degree of connection to, especially first and second.

Bronze: Multiplier Blackjack. This is a blackjack with a dealer new bust side bet added.

Silver: Ricochet Poker. This is a player vs. player game, where the dealer plays too, that is similar to a home game I played as a teenager called no-peekie.

Gold: Poker Burnout.

The question for the poll is which was your favorite game at the show?

Because of a schedule conflict at work, I didn't go this year.

However, I'm glad to see that Yo! not only was there, but was good enough to get on the short list of choices in this poll.

I saw that game at G2E and really liked it. So much so, that I suggested to the developer to show it at Cutting Edge. They hadn't heard of that show prior to me mentioning it.

Note that the name is Yo! - with an exclamation point.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

Nice people behind that game, so I hate to say anything negative. One of many attempts I've seen through the years to do a simplified friendlier version of craps. I'd like to see them do well, but let's just say I didn't bet on it to get an award. Then again, my predictions did badly this year, so what do I know?

Was a good show this year. 19 games in the competition, and a few others there just for show from the big boys.

I think Poker Burnout may have a chance to do well. It seems to check all the boxes on the things that make a game viable.

I also like some of the changes to Classic 31. I think the "Rainbow" winning combination may be a keeper.

That was the first movie I saw with Mrs. Wizard. Needless to say, she chose it, although it wasn't that bad.

Ouch, who do I have to pay to get my game on the poll! As if not placing didn't sting enough ;)

All joking aside I do want as much feedback as possible on my game from those who attended the show. Rip it to shreds, tell me it's the next best thing since sliced bread, or anything in between, I just want some honest feedback to improve on :)

The game was interesting and fun, but the honest truth is that a ‘card and dice’ game is a hard sell to operators. I’ve tried it, others have tried it — and it’s never been commercially successful.

I am going to have to agree. The card/dice portion, plus the unlimited (or virtually unlimited) doubling mechanism make the game less palatable for operators. You have to be able to increase the value of what is currently in its place on the floor, and do it by enough to significantly offset the lease payment. This allows for the training, inevitable dealer errors, player confusion, etc. that happens with any new game.

This is a hard pass for me.
