Your on a deserted island and are allowed one game. That one game has to be either a gambling game or a board game, Which INTV gambling game or board game would you pick?


I Pick L.V poker and Blackjack, because it was my first intv game and the only one i had for a long time before getting a second one. since i played it so many times i learned how to beat it and make tons of money playing the game, lol intv money that is.

You know the first time i went to vegas i did not know much about gambling games other than black jack. Anyway i went to vegas for a seminar and had warmed up for blackjack by plaing intv LV poker n blackjack. I left winning 2k which at that time was a lot more. it covered my room, meals and the clubs :)

Same game and robots is marketed as a puzzle. :) So it doesnt count, if I make and exception for you then i have to make an exception for pimpmaul and then an exception for everyone, before you know there will be anarchy and people wanting to have burger time as their one game. :)

I like uscf chess, probably bc i can beat it :) old fashion anti computer tactics work well against intelivision chess. If i knew how to program cartridges i would make an intv super chess , with more modern alogorithms.

Does Utopia count as either gambling or board game?

If not, then I'd say Las Vegas Poker & Blackjack, just because I had it as a kid (it came with my Master Component), and played it to death.

But I must say, this is a pretty stupid Island, and I'd probably wouldn't go on holiday there or to any other place that has the temerity to restrict not only how many but which types of games are inside my carts! ;)

For me it'd be LV Poker but I'm surprised no one has said Triple Challenge. 3 games in one...

Which one of the three games is the gambling, and which one is the board game? ;)

You know, every time I try to play that game, I can't figure it out.

I even had it as a kid, and never cared for it.

"Uh, horse racing... Wow. Really? Not a space game, or a strategy game... Horse. Racing. Uh, thanks Mom, or something..."

Hey, I didn't know you were a chessplayer! Some of the posts here might interest you. :) Are you USCF-rated?

Ha, touché. Such a drag that they cut Reversi from that cart at the last minute, though; I'd far sooner have had it without Backgammon and with Reversi.

Yes I am a chess Player I play a lot of chess, yes i am rated USCF. I like the game a lot. Except for this month due to work I play in tournaments every month. I am refered to as the American Kasparov :)

Whoa! :) What's your rating? I haven't played a rated tournament in years (I play almost exclusively on the Internet now), but I was about 1750 when I was last active. I'm probably a little stronger than that now, somewhere around 1800-1900 on a good day.
