    Consecutive pushes

    For any game designers out there; I had a thought. When we talk about won or lost hand streaks, we always need to specify if pushes count. What I haven’t seen is a bet based on consecutive pushes. The payouts could be higher, and strategy should be changed depending on number of pushes thus far. Very few players would use the correct strategy. Of course, it’s also countable.

    Damn, now all we have to do is patent it, design the table, get a casino to test it, and get approval in every state.

    Oops. There are four live trademarks for that name, two related to blackjack. Another life dream destroyed.

    Already in use, only it's the opposite and called "Push 22". Instead of them losing to you, they now keep that lost bet by not paying you which can be considered a 'win'.

    How about Pushups? I don't see it trademarked for cards. .Logos could appeal to the fantasy macho muscle man.

    How about "Tie Your Luck", a corruption of "Try Your Luck"? Looks like USPTO doesn't have it listed.

    Other than that, thinking how this would work: what would be the mechanics of the game? Would there be markers that the dealer needs to accumulate for the player? I wonder how complex the mechanics would be and how much it would slow the game down. Would it be better to base it off either the total push, or something like the number of player and/or dealer cards drawn when pushing? Such mechanics would be intrinsic to blackjack and would be easier to incorporate as their are fewer moving parts making dealing easy for the croupier, faster than dealing with extra parts for the casino, and less prone to error.

    Thoughts?

    Guess you'd place plain lammers on the side bet for each push.
