Welcome to Real Vegas is a new board game by Rumba Games. It is a board game that combines five card and dice games (Craps, Blackjack, Texas Hold 'Em Poker, Roulette and Slots) into one. Each space on the board designates which game the players are to play in that round.
This is not the first game of its kind to be on the market, the popularity of gambling games, which has followed on the heels of television shows like Celebrity Poker Showdown and World Poker Tour has spawned a number of similar games, such as Take a Gamble. However, for anyone who likes the individual games included here, all of these board games are very fun and worth a try.
One of the best features of this game are the super-high quality poker chips that are included (200 total!). They're real casino-style poker chips, made of thick plastic, as opposed to the old-style ones made with thinner ridged plastic.
For a taste of Las Vegas at your next party, this game will do the trick. It's a fun way to become familiar with gambling games, if you aren't comfortable with them already. It also can level the playing field a bit; if someone in your circle of friends is a real poker shark, this game will have them relying on a bit of luck in some of the non-poker games.
