    I got 'em all, but must admit there were a couple of coin flips.

    I missed 1. I had no idea that Palace Station was previously something else. The rest were too easy.

    Not only did I ace it, but as I was doing this aloud with my wife, I was mentioning stuff like "but even before it was Fitzgeralds it was the Sundance" (and I knew that Moe Daelitz owned it). I also knew it was Barbary Coast prior to being Bill's Gamblin' Hall.

    I spend way, way, WAY too much time reading about Vegas history.

    Same here. All my educated guesses were correct.

    I need to update mine too, I'm old enough to have actually been in all those old places(dunes/sands/showboat, etc) before they were imploded, While the new places are billion dollar wonderful, I rarely gamble at them, and the new versions(say the downtown grand vs lady luck) are prettier, they aren't gambler friendly, just not as fun as before.

    I tried the test and failed miserably. Too ashamed to say how much I got wrong (5). Hee hee! That's what I get for going to Vegas initially at a relatively old age (49).

    You guys who got it all right are the bomb!!:nworthy:
