    I would to know where there are still community games and linked games where everyone can play together that are still in Vegas or at your local casino. I love community games because everyone plays together and I love linked games because its fun to watch the bonuses regardless if its yours or not.

    I am going to Vegas memorial weekend and I would like to know if any of the casinos still have the community games batman, amazing race, the fish games, great and powerful oz, the new avatar (the one that sits 5+ people) and any of the other good ones to play when I go. I heard that a lot of community games have disappeared and there are not that many left. My favorite community game of all time is amazing race because everyone is playing together and is doing something in the bonus.

    My 2 local casinos Pechanga and Morongo both have Titan 360, which is fun playing and watching the ball roll around. Pechanga used to have a lot of community games like sex and the city, amazing race, deal or no deal, great and powerful oz, crazy taxi, sex and the city, judge judy, wheel of fortune and batman, but they are all gone now. The only community game left where everyone can play together at Pechanga is Beat the Field (horse racing game) and it has been at pechanga forever since I started going to that 3 years ago. Pechanga also has 2 other linked games like Titan 360 (Pirate Chaser and Mystical Temple), but is not as busy.

    Morongo has this new linked game called "Dragon's Victory" that I want to get a chance to try and "I think" they still have deal or no deal community game.

    Seems like the casinos do not have that many community or linked games anymore. They are a lot of fun to play. Titan 360 is always full of players with people winning every 3-5 minutes on it regardless what day or time of the week I go at both Morongo and Pechanga and I thought all the community games except for the pechanga fish one had a lot of playing time too when I went to the casino, but I guess not enough to keep it. Maybe there was not a lot of playing time on the days I did not go to the casino. Usually I go to the casinos on Thursdays or Fridays.

    The worst linked game is Pirate Chaser. Pirate Chaser has not had that many people playing on it for a while now every time I walk by it and I also used to play it until I got tired of the little wins regardless the bet level (does not multiply). On the bonus if you do not get the right dice roll, you get $2.50 regardless what you are betting and if you do get to an island and pick the wrong box with no chest, you get $5. At least on Titan there is no picking involved and you are guaranteed at least $10 times your bet level.

    The Flamingo has Deal or no Deal, and another community game on the other side of it(sorry don't remember which one, possibly American Idol) in the back like you are going to the café. The Great and Powerful OZ is also located at the Flamingo by the food court. The Venetian and the Quad has Paradise Fishing by Azure? 5 or 6 players. The last place I saw Batman (4 player)was the Rio, but it's been a while since I've been there. Avatar is at most casino's but only 2 player for the most part. The Quad has Life 4 player linked. That's about all I can remember. I'm sure there are others, but not something I typically seek out. Except for Batman all locations are current as of May 5th.

    I never have luck on those community games so I never really go looking for them... but from what I've seen every casino seems to have a bunch of them where maybe finding a specific machine/setup might be a little difficult, but if you are open to anything you should have a few to choose from for every casino.

    Venetian and Planet Hollywood always seemed to have more of these than other casinos as well.

    Thanks all, seems like the Venetian and Quad has what I am looking for. At the quad, where is the life 4 players linked game located?

    Also, I think all the casinos took out American Idol. I don't see them anywhere in any casinos anymore and they were replaced by some wheel of fortune linked game at every casino I went to where American Idol used to be. Do any of the casinos still have amazing race if anyone knows? That is the community game I really love playing (my favorite) along with American Idol and the fish one that Golden Nugget has or used to have (not the newest fish one where you have to put your hands on the controller to control the fishing rod).

    The game of Life is located in the front of the Quad on the Flamingo side. If you're walking in from the Flamingo just walk straight to the wall and turn right...You might be able to see it across the floor as you walk in...it would be a little to the right.
    and yeah I'm not really sure what game is behind Deal or no Deal in the Flamingo...could be WOF??? I just know for sure there is another big community game there, just don't know which one.

    American idol is still at the Golden Nugget. I think they have to keep it until the progressive is hit.

    Seriously Bonnie? I thought it was gone from every casino already. Maybe if there is time I can take a trip downtown to play it at the Nugget. I LOVE that community game and I do not know why it was taken out and replaced by wheel of fortune linked game.

    Any casinos still have amazing race? I am still waiting for an answer on this one.

    Can I ask why community games are being phased out if they are so popular (Monopoly Big Event circa 2006/2007 my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE). Does anyone know?

    Not Sure if it's still there or not, but Mirage did have Amazing Race back by the Revolution Bar/Samba Steakhouse.

    Thank you, I will have to check that out depending how much time I have and what my friends decide to do. I was not happy with the way the mirage slot machines paid when I stayed there 2 years ago, very tight. I went across the street to the Venetian and I had good luck there. I know for sure I will be playing at the Venetian and I think I remember them having amazing race too 2 years ago? I don't remember if they did or not, but they did have the big oversize wheel of fortune game that I miss playing and I think they still have it.

    My favorite community game of all time was LIFE, but I don't think there are any left in Vegas :(

    Little Green Men: Cosmic Blasters is a two player game and I really enjoy it.

    The early ones were really cool because you could find yourself with some big hits if you were willing to put up the the risk. But the last ones I've seen were tight and not fun at all so I've soured on them. But there are people who hate having to keep betting to keep eligibility going, who couldn't understand the rules and others who hated the the bets required once they stop offering the option to play and not be bonus eligible so the overall audience interested in community games is a bit smaller than they probably liked.

    Both of my local casinos took out all the community games that you have to keep betting to keep eligibility going. All Pechanga has is linked multiplier games and one community game that all you need is the extra bet enabled to be eligible for the horse race and make a bet within 7 seconds from the trigger (Beat the Field). The linked games they have are Mystical Temple, Titan 360, and Pirate Chaser. At Morongo, the deal or no deal community game is officially gone and replaced by Zuma. They have only linked games now. Titan 360, a Pirate game like mystical temple, and Dragon's Victory. The most fun ones out of all of these are Titan 360 and Beat the Field where no picking for a jackpot is required. I hate picking bonus games.
