People are all fine with it because a better
and improved event is coming very shortly.
Thats the best move Roger has made, not
this other stuff you're going on about.


Roger has considered all good ideas for the next event, even some from me, I would like to think.
You will correct me on this, regardless of if I am wrong or right on this.
Get over it, I presented some ideas to "un-bias" the next event, - as we all have - and they all added, even if they came from diabolical Dan.

Get over any resentment, Buzz.
It was all good.

He's going to erase the bad taste in the mouth
from the first event, with the event that will
please everyone. Its not for nothing he's called
the Prince of Darkness. Thats his official title,
isn't it?

Roger is not called that, except by some sour ex-shfl people.
Actually, he is called the "P of D" by a few others on the basis of sour grapes.
Ignore them, and judge him on your own straight-up dealings with him. He is straight up, a little more so than some can handle.
He's actually a stand-up and straight up guy who doesn't mince words.
He'll cut your arm off in a sword fight like many men, though.
He's in the gaming business, and he's the quickest learner from a field trial, I can tell you that.
The next event will be fine.

Well...
You protested too much. A hall mark of a residual issues remains a simmering pot.
Shoot, guddang, and I thought I was long-winded....

Buzz, If you had said, "Yeah, the game tally results of Roger's event had stung me for just a second while in the room, - and I have got to admit that was true then, - but I've re-grouped and moved forward from there," - and then you actually moved forward from there, then fine. The more you defend yourself, the more you indicate an issue.

It's like saying for a few years: ,

I'm over my ex-wife and the divorce, really I am, I'm OKAY,
I'm over my ex-wife and the divorce, really I am, I'm OKAY,
I'm over my ex-wife and the divorce, really I am, I'm OKAY

Goddamit, I'm Okay, @#$%%^#
Goddamit, I'm Okay, @#$%%^#
...
Look, Buzz, we know you're okay with everything, we got it.

It was great - fantastic you made it out to the new games event, you did us well, we are all proud you you.
You game is good.
Keep on perfecting it, it might get into casinos.
But don't give up your day time job.
Dave "DJTeddyBear" hasn't.
I haven't. I deal dice and Pai Gow Poker at Fiesta Henderson. My Wife works at Sam's Town (Boyd gaming).
And Roger still works at SHFL.

None of us are retired, and we would really like to be. In a mansion in Thailand, - with lady servants at our beck and call. ("I NEED servicing...[clap, clap!]")
NONE of us got there yet. NO one....

I think (KNOW FOR A FACT) that casino pit operations and new games development areas are the toughest and rudest areas in gaming to work in.
NOT easy.
We also know that new games get BLASTED in the press and Internet until they have 40 gmes out, - and by casino managers you're trying to sell to - especially with Eliot J. constantly showing how countable they all are on www.discountgambling.com - if they are dealt from a shoe...(He's found a gravy train...)

Buzz, you expressed excessive interest or possible resentment by not leaving it at:
1. Roger did his best. He did great, he did a brave thing, and He was human, there were some mistakes. Dan chimed in to agree on this. Okay. We are ALL fine with that - and I am using the word all to describe ALL of us. We are now all okay. Unless someone has a further problem with Roger...outside ot Sc?tt.
2. I didn't do too well, but I will do better next time. I will work on and refine my game. Make it a mother@#$%^... Okay, and;
3. I am OVER it - so here are my fixes to the game, or a NEW game design, and I will make it in gaming or;
4. I am going back to my daytime job - to become president of that company.

Everybody's fine now. It was a great and brave thing by Shufflemaster overall.

We move on to the next gaming endeavor...

Sounds like a certain somebody on here who
always defends the casinos right to have secret
rules.

no. no secret rules. just acusations to that effect from Bob over here.

Things are pretty much out totally out in the open, thanks to the Internet and its forums.

Legions chime in, and everyone knows everything.

And Bob still wails and accuses of Darth Vader conspiracies...gotta love this place...

The more you speak for me, the more I feel necessary to reply. But no more !

This thread brought out the worst in most people who posted...

Anyway, if anyone wants to bring my game to Shufflemaster Focus Group 2, just let me know. You need to do all the work, and all I require is 10% of the profit. But I can be negotiated down to 5% pretty quickly :)

I'd like one game install for Tri-Craps and I would be a happy man!

Buzz, I must say that your lengthy posts were well written and had a nice literary feel to them. Maybe you could target some of your creative ideas into writing short stories or even a book?
