Super fun stategy game! Mar 05, 2008
I love board games! I have a closet full of them and I mean full. My friends and family say I am kinda a board game expert. At first glance this game seemed overwhelming, but once you get to actually playing it is realitively easy. Definite stategy is involved in this game. I say the box suggestion of 12 and older is about right. But, I would venture to say someone as young as 10 could play this game. I played it the first time with 4 people, all adults. All of whom loved the game. I can't wait to play it again. The only down side is it not a 2 person game. It is a 3-5 person game. Game play lasts for about an hour to an hour and a half depending on how long it takes people to decide what their next move will be and how the cards are played. It is fun and exciting building your own casino floor plan and bidding against other players for the next piece to your casino. All along trying to become the most busy casino, collecting the most money, and most fame. Things to note if you purchase this game-it took us a minute to figure out what a few of the cardboard pieces were for, because it doesn't tell you or show you. We figured out you put the pieces together for storage for inside of your game box. Also very important ON EVERYONE'S TURN you get money that is how it makes for easier bidding wars! Buy this game you won't regret it!

A fun, light bidding game Jan 01, 2009
By Daniel V. Velazquez
Board games are different depending on who you're playing with. So if you have a group of friends that would like to play games but don't like the usual dungeons and war themes, than maybe Vegas Showdown is for them. 3 to 5 players have the objective of building a casino that attracts the most people, generates more money and is the most famous casino of the strip. So every turn, you can bid on a tile that represents a part of the casino you want to build. Players can outbid you for the same piece and every turn, expensive tiles drop in price. So there's some strategy involved in what you want to do and what you think everyone else wants on one turn. I recommend it, played it with friends who are really into board games and with new players, some people even call me to ask when we're playing again!

An excellent board game! Jan 19, 2008
By Whitney Duncan
We got this for Christmas, and have had people over to play it every weekend since! It's a really good game of bidding, strategy and resource management, less random than Settlers of Catan. The rules are a little heavy to read out loud, its much easier to learn by doing. We use our own clay poker chips for money, somehow makes it more fun. We highly recommend this game!
One of Our Favorites May 03, 2011
By Vincent J. Difruscio Jr.
Avid gamer; host adult (20's - 40's) gamers a few times a month.
This is among our favorites (probably in the top 3 along with Ticket to Ride and Power Grid). The play is fast, the bidding keeps everyone involved, and there is a lot of creativity to the game and game-play.
The rules seem a little complex on reading, but quickly become second-nature. The game is nearly intuitive. The touch-move feature is fun: just like in Vegas, once you've let go of your bid-marker, there's no going back.
And for those who might be concerned, there is no gambling in this game. It's basically a game of bidding, acquiring "rooms" for your casino and hotel. The creativity comes in placement of these rooms and in acquisition of some rooms that have prerequisite rooms required before placement.

My favorite boardgame Dec 09, 2012
By Lincoln Russell
Cannot believe it's not published any more. Never gets old, not difficult to learn, and tons of strategy on multiple levels. A huge success amongst my friends.
