What games do you play apart from poker? Personally, I only ever really play poker regularly. We sometimes have a game of blackjack or something towards the end of a session. However, we do not really do so that often.
Do you play other games at casinos (online or in person)? I have tried roulette a few times but I did not find it particularly fun.

Besides playing poker I enjoy craps and blackjack. I rarely play them in the casino though these days. Haven't played live blackjack in a long time. Tried to teach myself how to play chess but gave up.

I tried blackjack, not a huge fan.
Don't know how to play craps which is probably a good thing :)
Sometimes ill take a random shot at roulette but never dump too much into that.

I usually end up playing blackjack when I go to the casino. I'm going to give poker at a casino a try with a few of my buddies soon

Nope. We have a friendly home game for poker, but I don't visit casinos. Too easy too lose too much money there.

For non-casino gaming, I like Backgammon. I am too old to bother with Chess any more, as I am unwilling to devote much time to studying the game as thoroughly as I would need to in order to be satisfied with my play.

I like most card games . . . Euchre, Hearts, Canasta. But for sheer entertainment, you have to try "Blade Your Buddy"

Everyone starts with 5 lives (on a gambling night each "life" can have a monetary value). Everyone is dealt five cards and play starts on the Dealer's left. The object is to match the card played by the player on your right while remaining UNmatched by the player to your left. Lives are lost when matches are made, and runs of matches increase the number of lives lost. To explain . . .

Player "A" starts the round with a 6
Player "B" plays a 6, costing Player "A" 1 life.
Player "C" plays a jack (no match)
Player "D" plays a 6 (no match)
Player "E" plays a King
Player "F" plays a King, costing Player "E" a life
Player "G" plays a King, costing Player "F" 2 lives.

Last Player with a life in front of them wins the pot. fun game to play with the kids at the cottage with pennies.

Sounds like fun. Never heard of it.

Dealer's Choice game I started in 20+ years ago spread it once or twice a night, each life worth a $1.00. Bit of an okay timewaster, with a nice sized pot for the winner. Often as not when it got to HU a chop was usually agreed to, especially if both players had more than one life left. Fastest I have ever seen the game end was three (3) deals starting 7 handed. Absolute carnage . . . but a hell of a lot of fun.
