Dealing Shoe
Deal those cards! You can do it the old-fashioned way, or--just like the dealers in Las Vegas--you can use this card dealing shoe, which is a plastic holder for up to two decks of cards. The hard- plastic shoe is 8 inches long and 5 inches wide and has a sliding angled piece to hold the cards in place. Each new card falls forward into the exit slot, which has a keyhole cutout to draw the card out. The device is perfect for playing blackjack and other card games, or just use it to give your card party that Vegas feel. --Marcie Bovetz

Card Shuffler
Battery operated card shuffler can mix two decks of playing cards completely. Batteries and cards not included.

Tripoley Special Edition
This special-edition game celebrates 65 years of Tripoley, a long-time favorite for parties or at-home fun. Tripoley combines the strategy and skill involved in hearts, poker, and Michigan rummy. One game of each constitutes a "round" of Tripoley. The group decides the number of rounds in each game before play begins. After all the rounds have been played, the player with the most chips is the winner. Designed for two to nine players. This special edition includes a rotating game tray, poker chips, and playing cards. --Alison Golder

The Game of Michigan Rummy, Hearts & Poker. More than 65 successful years as a family game, Tripoley combines strategy and an element of risk, making it an enduring family favorite.

Casinopoly: The Casino Party Board Game
Viva Las Vegas! And Atlantic City, too! With Casinopoly, players can play a casino party game or create an add-on feature that's compatible with "the most popular real estate trading board games." The board just happens to fit snugly into the center of a Monopoly board, and, whether you're landing on Boardwalk or cruising the Strip, Casinopoly's easy dice versions of four casino classics provide plenty of action. Played on its own, the game moves faster than the B&O Railroad: Land on roulette and roll the special die showing either red or black; slots dice roll to reveal a combo of cherries, lemons, and bells; toss the two card-faced blackjack bones to hit 21; or attempt to shake 7 or 11 with the regular craps dice. Should high rollers want to move from the Belaggio to Baltic Avenue, the rule sheet explains how to incorporate the games into a round of Monopoly. Casinopoly lets players go from starvin' to Marvin (Gardens, that is) with a roll of the dice. --Tony Mason

Bunny Money Game
Players have fun traveling the game board visiting stores trying to complete their shopping lists. Money can be earned by doing good deeds or spent on ice cream and other treats. Individual achievements can earn player special priveleges too. The trick is to have enough money to buy everything on your list and to do it before your opponents finish their shopping. Oppenheim award winner, National Parenting award.

Black Jack Game
With a title that sounds downright biblical, and a fire-and-brimstone slogan on its box that exhorts, "If you want to play a pro's game--better learn to play like a pro," The Greatest Games Ever Played: Blackjack doesn't disappoint when it comes to professional standards. This set wouldn't look out of place in either a Vegas or Gomorrah casino. It comes complete with a handsome dealer's table apron in rich green felt baize, a deck of linen-finish playing cards, a spring-loaded dealing "shoe" with a four-deck capacity, and a passport-size, 12-page blackjack bible containing rules, glossary, and playing tips--including the 11th commandment: thou shalt not hit a soft 18. --Tony Mason

Poker Keeno
This low-budget game is, essentially, a modified version of bingo. Each player gets one of twelve 6-by-9-inch cardstock boards. A five-by-five grid of playing cards is printed on each board. The dealer calls out cards one by one (playing cards not included), and players mark off called cards on their boards using the included poker chips. The first player to get five cards in a row wins the round and all the chips in play. In the case of a tie, the highest poker hand wins. --Paul Hughes

Deluxe Cribbage Set
Cribbage still reigns as one of the English-speaking world's most popular card games. (And we owe it all to one of the 17th century's unsung heroes, Sir John Suckling, English knight, poet, playwright, and inventor of "cribbidge.") This simple, handsome set gives you everything you need to play the classic game, including instructions, a standard deck of high-quality Bicycle cards, and a 15-inch-long, solid-wood board with continuous scoring lanes painted on it. The game's scoring pegs are stored in a slide-out compartment beneath the board. --Paul Hughes
