Newbie Learning BS and Carnival Cruise
  • I'm new to this forum and BJ. I have been reading up on the Basic Strategy and using the Hit-or-Stand game with the coaching tutorial deal.

    I will be going on a cruse with Carnival Cruise lines. Does anybody know what rules they use? I see in the various charts some differences. IF nobody knows and I only have time to learn one, which would you go with...LasVegas rules or Atlantic City rules? Any ideas on probability for which one they use?

    Also, I think there are only a few variations as far as BS goes for different rules. Using the tutorial game in Normal Mode, I'm usually getting between 95% and 100% correct. Since I've learned how to READ the chart, I can get 100% all the time if I use it during the game. Going from memory, I do make some mistakes.

    Does anybody have any good ideas for how to REMEMBER the BS? I just keep practicing.

    DUMB QUESTION, but I've never played...Can you take the chart with you and use it as a cheat sheet while you play?

    Thanks for any advice to a newbie.
  • I've only played Vegas, but every casino I went to (8 of 'em) allowed players to use the cards if it didn't slow down the game too much.

Howdy, Stranger!
