Grand Slam Casino Baseball: The game exhibitor's baseball terminology (i.e., mumbo jumbo) about "triples" and "home runs" is a negative feature of the explanation that you were stuck with. A negative feature of the game, IMO.

A video about a game like this needs to clearly state what the player is trying to accomplish, what the payouts are for different levels of matching the board, and what the player decisions are. Simply showing the payout tables on the felt might have helped to explain some of this. But also, I have no idea why players might wish to "pull back" their third base bet or their second base bet -why are they given that option? Because they have bad cards, less than a 10? or what?

Again, this is a problem with how the exhibitor is explaining his game, not with your skills at making a video. I get the feeling that a fairly simple "card rank matching game" has been adorned with baseball-themed terminology and imagery as a marketing ploy, but the net result is that this is not a clear description of the game. I feel skeptical about the prospects of this game.

Thanks for not assigning me any blame, but I'll accept some. If it's any excuse, I don't understand these games myself most of the time when I do the interview and count on the game representative to explain it in a minute or two. Many games are hard to sum up that quickly because they simply are complicated games. This game in particular.

However, this year, if there is a show, I'll try harder to understand the rules myself to ask better questions and maybe narrate the example hands myself.

It's "Let It Ride" with an extra card.

He seems like a nice kid. And it's interesting that he managed to do the show on the cheap with only a printing of his layout. (I didn't know CE would allow that.) As for the game, well, unfortunately card roulette games are a dime a dozen. I wish him the best but the reality is Cash Card's chances of success lie somewhere between jack and squat.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

It's time for our next game from Cutting Edge -- Baccarat Blitz.

I would loosely describe this game as a cross between baccarat and Casino War. It went onto win second place at the show.

You're welcome. You found out quickly. Sorry it took so long.

On Baccarat Blitz, what rules are the source of the House Edge on a Banker/Player wager? On the video, those wagers looked like a coin flip.

Are the Side-bets or the Tia bet countable?
