Oh boy, the guys went to the casino.. The guys

Let's see what these three are up to tonight. I wonder if going to the casino was a good idea?? Maybe for a couple of them.

Start the two minute timer... The blackjack player, who didn't break even or win (like the roulette player) decided to watch Michael and Charles for a little while before ordering another drink - come to think of it, since Charles won tonight he should pay for the drink!

Did you figure out who won, lost, or broke even playing blackjack, roulette, or poker?

THe guys

    $\begingroup$ I've downvoted this (and the other two virtually identical puzzles posted at the same time) because it seems like more work was put into attracting attention with the images than into making the actual puzzles themselves. The images (and commentary, like "start the two-minute timer") are entirely unnecessary -- I'd prefer more high-quality, thought-out puzzles at a less frequent rate. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi May 13 at 6:18
  • $\begingroup$ you are wrong. they all very different. if you can't solve them, don't down vote, try easier puzzle. nothing to be ashamed of @Deusovi. Keep practicing, you will one day be able to solve these. $\endgroup$ – John S. May 13 at 7:17
  • $\begingroup$ @Deusovi, BTW I only get access to post once a day at work. LOL before you criticize, show us all these are not high quality puzzles. As I mentioned before, if you need easier ones, I can make one with only two categories. It's easy to throw stones when you are doing so from where you can't be hit back.... until you show us, me this is similar to my other ones by solving them and comparing the answers, you downvote mean nothing to me. :) $\endgroup$ – John S.

    $\begingroup$ @JohnS. I'm going to point you, again, to this comment. You...probably should find out a bit about who you're responding to, before condescendingly suggesting their critique and suggestion for future improvement is due to their inability to solve a puzzle you intentionally made to be trivial. You want folks to point out how your puzzles are perhaps not as high quality as you think? I'll obligingly point out that Ways to work is not actually solvable, as I've noted in a comment on the lone answer there. Some humility and civility might do you good. $\endgroup$ – Rubio May 13 at 8:15

    $\begingroup$ @JohnS. Way to bury your head in the sand. The puzzle is bad, and there isn't much more to say. As this is a public platform, there's no reason for the site to host your puzzles if you don't act in good faith. $\endgroup$ – Don Thousand May 15 at 19:12
