I have moved all my game development related posts to http://www.lightwoodgames.com/blog and this is where I’ll be writing from now on.
Please grab the new RSS feed or use the clever Facebook tools to “like” it if you’re interested in what I have to say about mobile games.
You’ll spot my posts over there. They’re the ranty ones
The Gambler’s Book Club wants to re-order supplies of The Ultimate Video Poker Pocket Book!
This means that, depending on their re-order level, the number of people who have already discovered the joys of having pages and pages of gambling strategy tables in a handy, take-anywhere format could be as many as twelve.
That’s a pretty solid average of nearly two copies per month flying out the door since I sent them the first batch last November.
Actually, it’s slightly more than that. At least one copy has been sold through Amazon.com – and it had even had such an impact on the reader that he left a review:
Try reading that aloud without doing air quotes. I bet you can’t.
But wait – the iPhone version is doing even better! I’ve sold a whopping 44 units. And only one of those, as far as I know, was accidentally to myself
It’s surely only a matter of time before my mug shot is used to endorse some shady off-strip casino. (Anyone interested: I’ll accept food comp or matchplay coupons for the image rights).
If you don’t already have a copy of what must surely be the best selling small format video poker strategy guidebook in the world (just show me another one that’s doing better) what are you waiting for?
Visit http://www.ultvp.com/ for more information. If I sell another dozen copies, I might even finish that web site…

I still think it’s a bit weird that this is even a thing, but it’s actually quite good.

The legendary shrimp cocktail and free beads, obviously.
Live photo stream. It’s quite busy so I might not be able to take many pics…
I am enjoying the complimentary pastrami and watching The Sound of Music. It is a bank holiday, after all.
Readers of VegasTripping.com, I’m afraid you are wrong.
The recently announced “Trippies” award non-ceremony included this spiteful slur on what has become my favourite place to play poker in Las Vegas.
They may lose points for having a name with two apostrophes (one of them borrowed from Caesars Palace, no doubt), and yes it is just three small poker tables dumped by the door.
But if you’ve never played poker at O’Shea’s – particularly on Karaoke night – you’ve missed out on the funnest poker experience on the Strip. It always has the best view too.
Voters in this poll took themselves far too seriously and voted for the unwelcoming Bellagio poker room as the best place to play.
Do they have a house band that plays a cover of Tenacious D’s “Fuck Her Gently” (and clientele that know every single word to sing along) over there?
Didn’t think so. Viva O’Shea’s!
