One thing that most of us will have learned from the festive period is that regardless of whether we’re playing a video game, a board game, or even a casino game, there are some people who seem to effortlessly play and win!
Whilst the rest of us a busy trying to understand the rules of Risk, or are getting to grips with the different hands of poker, some lucky individuals appear to have a natural gift for gameplay. So what can us mere mortals do to try and create a level playing field?
Most people who play video games seem to flock to websites like YouTube and Twitch to hunt down walkthroughs and tips from expert gamers.
Some helpful YouTube gamers like theRadBrad offer some great advice for games like Rise of the Tomb Raider, Mortal Kombat and Grand Theft Auto, and what’s best is that the tips are explained in a way that’s often more entertaining than the gameplay itself!
However, it’s also worth noting that a lot of gaming advice on such channels are often poorly explained or just plain wrong. And similarly, if you’re looking for tips on some more established games, then it can be a good idea to seek advice from a more established source.
For example, if you’re looking to improve your chances of winning in games of mobile blackjack or even a strategy for playing the slots that can be found in the LadyLucks app, you can find plenty of helpful guidebooks out there.
Whilst some of the tips and strategies found in card-game books like John Bukofsky’s legendary Blackjack: Play Like The Pros may be a little hard to understand for newcomers, they do provide a better overall grounding in a game than a mere YouTube walk through.
But as even casino games have become transformed in the 21st century, perhaps a good option is to use a combination of old-school guides and the new generation of YouTube-assisted guides.
This means that whether you are playing mobile casino titles, the latest next-gen console game, or even a trusty board game, you’ll get a broad in-depth understanding of the in-game dynamics and the latest tips from the digital generation. And regardless of whether you can find an applicable guide to your game of choice, there’s nothing like lots of practice to help you boost your game play!
