Even though I lost the first fifteen times I played, (no joke!) I still love this game.

Came out in Canada in 1975, before appearing in the US in 1977. Is it originally a Canadian game?

This mindless game is thorougly luck-driven, but it is incredibly fun to play. Rolling doubles twice in a row is particularly exciting, as that pays half the money needed to win the game. It cracks me up that gambling is not only a legitimate way to make money in this family game, it is the ONLY way to make money! This game is perfect for when you're very tired and don't want to think, but just want to play something fun. However, if you are not lucky with dice, this is not the game for you.

I got this game last summer at a garage sale for .10$....Thats right 10 cents!! Seriously, how in the world could I pass this up? This is a fun little game from the 70's....little bit before my time. (Im an 80's baby) But, I love games from this era. They are really well thought out, and the art work is just awesome. Once the rules had been read, and got into it, I was suprised by how fun it really was. It wasnt your typical roll and move type game. Its discoveries like this, that keep my love of board games alive. So often I buy duds that I will never play again...but this will get pulled out again!

Great MB type game. Lots of luck and simple fun. There is a little bit of strategy over time, but a newcomer has close to the same chances as winning as a bookie.

Good family game - played the heck out of it with my nephews (years back) and we still bring up those game sessions during one of our "remember the time" conversations.

It's quick and fun - which is why it gets a seven - not because of any skill needed. Really interactive, too. pick it up if you can get it for a buck or so.

The success of this game depends on who you have around. Our group is not afraid to cheer for the random outcome of dice, so we had fun with it. It's hard to lose significant amounts of money in this game, so the title "Gambler" is a misnomer. Perhaps it would be more fun if you were indeed gambling and trying to play long odds, rather than relying on luck.

As a children's game, it's pretty fun and you do make some gambling related probability decisions. I'd imagine everyone smiles when remembering playing this one, especially with that big dice shaker. Probably would wear thin fast for adults, but a slightly above average children's game.

Played that game a lot as a kid. Found it at a thrift store for $3,00!! Can't wait to show it my parents. Very basic game. Go around a board and play the different gambling game. And it as an amazing dice shaker!!! If you like gambling and luck game, you should love that one, even if it's that old. It has an old western saloon/gambling room feel.

Fun game to play with friends over drinks. Not too involved. You just do what the board says.

This Parker Brothers game was high on my list of favourite games before I discovered wargames. I played it recently, and it's still not bad. You need to have an idea of how the rest of the players are doing, so that you can gauge how much risk to take.
