OK this actually makes sense. As a slightly off topic followup, do casinos typically let you keep what you won if they do catch you card counting? They may have the right to choose not to play with you, but the games in which they did play with you should be considered legitimate, right?

I'm still not convinced. "gaming establishments have the unquestioned right to protect themselves against those who have developed expertise in the game" So basically you are not allowed to become skilled in the game. Casinos pretend that they let you gamble in a game that has certain rules, but if you use skill to win, then you are not allowed to play, even if you play within the confines of those rules. Sounds like fraud to me.

comment Playing Settlers of Catan with a D12 instead of 2D6
Obviously if this works for you, then great, but in my opinion what you're playing isn't Settlers of Catan anymore, so I don't feel like this is a very helpful answer.
