You're welcome. I thanked you for your help at the bottom of the page.

it is new that Wizard is doing sth on AG.
AG is number one in Philippine, like pokerstar in poker.
BBIN is number two in Philippine, like partypoker in poker.
both of them offer games, like MG, PT.
thousands of websites are using AG, BBIN,
there are some other not-so-popular platforms in asia online gambling, mg, pt, hg, bg, ....g,.g.g.more than 10.
i played a lot on them. i made some money on it. they offered crazy bonuses. but a few don't pay if i win. even i lose.i wrote about it before in another thread.

the niuniu game, i saw it on ag, but i never played it. i don't feel like reading all details.
we play niuniu in China in real with friends or relatives. the rules are similar. but it is played with no strict casino-like rules.

we play majiang, doudizhu,zhajinhua... in macau, we play baijiale.
chinese like qianshu,( directly english: Thousand techniques),meaning cheat or magic.

Hi Tom. I must confess I don't know what many of your acronyms stand for.

When I was in Guilin, China, everybody seemed to be playing a card game, in groups of four, using long cards that look like the stick a doctor uses to press down your tongue. What was everybody playing?

Here's an interesting Wikipedia article about Chinese cards that are slender: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Color_Cards.

The cards were about that shape, but looked like they had the standard 2-Ace ranks and the usual suits. However, I never got close enough to really tell.

If they were standard playing card ranks and suits, they could be playing any number of four player games: Hearts, Spades, Rummy, etc.

Did the cards look like this:

Maybe they did look like that. It was 2009 and I never got that close. It was just strange that everywhere you went you say people playing with these long cards.

The elongated cards display the Chinese symbol for the card rank in a mixture of both the traditional and simplified versions of the language. The symbol in the middle of the cards with the circle around it can be translated as "Get rich big".
