    Costa Rica

    Planning a trip soon, since I’ve never been.
    Are the games worth playing? Standard info would be appreciated.

    Decks, Euro rules? Pen, rules such as DAS, Sur, DBL on any 2 etc.

    Thanks

    I was there a few years ago. looked at one casino in San Jose and another on the Pac. Coast (forget exactly, but a bit north of manual Antonio).

    Wasn’t exactly BJ. They called it Rummy, kinda like Sp21. Pen was 50%, so didn’t look into it any further.

    Was there a long time ago as well – I believe there is some sort of legal restriction about traditional games – so they had to make some new ones up. Like Roulette with no wheel – numbered balls picked out of a “tombola” like cage…

    I think the rules vary in different places – might be worth a look, but you’ll need skills (or help, or both…) to analyse the games.
