I almost got a copy of this game for free. I ordered another game from Tanga and there was some kind of a delay in shipment so they were going to send me a copy of this game for free. Then, I got a letter from them saying that there was a miscommunication with the shipping department and that I will not be receiving this game. So, I almost got one. It looks interesting, though.

It is OK. It has same interesting hand management and "money/chip" mechanics. It is one of the few games that you can play and enjoy as a single player too.

Same thing happened to me. I got the first email and was excited to see a bonus game for having to wait so long. Then the second email... soblue

Same story here as well...

I actually sent a thank you response about their professionalism in giving me a freebie for delayed shipping.

Then I got the second email and had to send another response to eat my hat!shake

Oh well!...

This game is actually more interesting than it looks, but it's very unknown. I got it for "almost free", as I paid $5 for it at a thrift store (German version, out in the countryside here in Sweden – I'd love to hear the story of how the hell it got there.)

Wow. It's very interesting to see how many people this has happened to.

Also, GaryP, did you used to work at a place called Hamilton Standard?
