    BJ IQ

    Yes, of course. New Jersey is the center of the intelligent universe. From what I understand, all intelligence begins in NJ. Just look at their governors.

    blackjack dice

    From what I understand... This game was set to debut in a gulf coast casino when Katrina hit. It believe it is now scheduled to debut in a casino in Connecticut, though I cannot confirm this. I spoke with the developer at some length. It is a good game that is well thought out and has a...

    Chess... just another game...

    When I ran it... I ran an opening book size of several hundred megabytes, that was in 1995. I am sure these things now have books of gigabyte size. What is far larger, however, are the endgame databases. They are huge and exhaustive. Crafty allowed the person running it to customize the...

    Any NLV dives worth playing at?

    One time in Tunica... I was at one of the Hotels in Tunica and I forget where I parked my car. I asked the cab to drive me around the lot until we found my car. It took about 15 seconds, and was only about 50 feet away 8-)

    Any NLV dives worth playing at?

    I almost stayed there once... The early days. In 1996 I had a room reservation at the GS ($22 sounds about right), sight unseen, flying in from Ohio. I arrived there around 11PM, looked at the room (and more importantly, the flimsy doors), and walked out. I took a cab from the Spike over to...
