Many of you probably know from chat that I have been working on a Casino style puzzle for a while now...

Most of those who do know probably also know that it involves a sort of simulated gambling:

For instance I have a Blackjack part. It will show a gif where you and an imaginary opponent receive two cards each, and then it will come up with an option at the end like this:

Hit - [Imgur address]
Stand - [Imgur address]

If you type in the imgur address for the hit then it will show a gif where you receive another card, etc. and stand you see your opponents cards, etc.

Having spent such a long time in creation, I just want to check that this sort of puzzle will be allowed

Some clarifications:

  • There is no sort of money or even fake money involved

  • There is no reward for winning

  • It involves Slots, Bingo, Blackjack and Roulette

  • It is a puzzle. It has hidden clues throughout

Will this be OK to post?

    $\begingroup$ My question is what is the aim of the game?? And is it really a puzzle or just a game of chance?? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Sid, it has hidden clues within it and it is a puzzle. I'll clarify $\endgroup$ Sep 25, 2016 at 14:42

    $\begingroup$ Polls often aren't a good way to get consensus on meta. If it's not OK to post, you'll want to know why, and simple downvotes won't tell you that. Likewise, if it is OK to post, it'd be nice to see someone explicitly saying so rather than just a bunch of anonymous upvotes which could be from people who like the idea without having a clue about site policy. $\endgroup$ Sep 25, 2016 at 15:16

I don't see any issue here. There's no problem with the theme of the puzzle, and assuming there's an actual "correct" set of decisions to make (i.e. it's a puzzle and not a game), then there's no problem with the structure either.

In fact, from the sounds of it, it would structurally be the same as A puzzling image maze!, so there's already (positively accepted) precedent on your side too.
