  • Anyone doing FallOut New Vegas ???

    Just thought I'd ask.

    I'm banned at half the Casinos and I just figured out how to win at Caravan.

    You made me laugh! I played all the way through the game and never figured Caravan out. Tried twice and didn't give it a third thought. I don't gamble though so it never piqued my curiosity.

      It took losing about 30 games in a row, maybe more, before I started winning. And this is even after ...

      Tip #1
      Code:
       buy all the cards anyone sells and pick up any cards you find.
      Tip #2
      Code:
       limit your deck to the minimum needed cards of 30
      Tip #3
      Code:
       have ONLY the essential cards needed to win in that deck of 30
      (sorry ... I don't know the black out spoiler code)

      I'm not sure if Tip #3 can be done in its entirety. I still have about 5 or 6 unwanted cards in my deck. I suppose I should swap out those unwanted number cards for a few action picture cards. Perhaps I will when I get better and can see when to use them. Right now with all number cards I'm winning about 80 to 90 % of the time.

      Caravan is supposed to be THE game to learn in NV because unlike the Casinos where you can get banned and thus no more caps winnings, Caravan games are unlimited with most of the Caravan players.

        I never even gambled in the Casinos. I just sniped NCR Rangers for their weapons and armor to sell it. Once you advance far enough in the game they appear at forts and some outposts. After you kill them all just wait a couple of days and they re-appear.

            Got the HardCore Achievement !!!!!!!

            Did another run through FO:NV. Did the Legion ending this time. Hardcore mode is interesting.

            Anyone else do Hardcore Mode?
