I'd like to dedicate the following Youtube link to person(s) on here whom shall remain anonymous.

I'd get involved myself but, as with Mr. DeBakey, I'm far too conciliatory. Enjoy.

If that's the way you feel about it, why did you ask to be considered for Focus Group 2?

And are you sure you haven't been selected? Although the "lottery" was supposed to be drawn yesterday, I kinda expected the results to be published here...

Or your email as Roger's email has the following open sentence.

This e-mail is being sent to everyone who submitted his name for inclusion in the June 7 focus group at Shuffle Master.

I did not get the email.

Then again, I wasn't expecting it.


Although I originally asked to be considered, yesterday morning, I withdrew. I need to make some changes to my game. I do not think I can properly fix the game and be ready to present it in only 4 weeks time. I DID ask to be kept in the loop, and for inclusion in some other future focus group.

For a variety of reasons, which may or may not have been as important as I had though they were, I didn't want to disclose that info until after the names had been drawn.

Ok Teddy Bear. That makes sense, I will forward the email as Roger expressed the fact that the Focus group is not the end all.
I will quote from his email.

" Again, and I can稚 stress this enough, our primary method for evaluating games is not through these focus groups. Instead, it is through my benevolent dictatorship. Send your games to me (sign the waiver first) and you will get a prompt yes or no answer. "

I am sure EvenBob will comment on " benevolent dictatorship" later. LOL

Good luck with your new and improved POKER FOR ROULETTE. Look forward to playing it in a casino in the near future. Probably will have to push my way through the excited crowd of players to do so.

I heard thru the grapevine that one of the
new games they're looking at is titled "Just
Give Us Your Money, Stupid!".

While appropriate, it might be a little over
the top for some patrons. I suggest they
tone it down a little. Maybe call it "Psst.
Over Here, Moron".
