The Platoon guide is completely unnecessary. Just read the rules. It's a fairly simple game, once you understand the rules and develop some basic tactics you can win really big pretty easily.

I won 3 full rounds of platoon right when the casino opened and haven't needed money since. It took a while before I figured out the best strategy (used the guide as a basis), and after that it's very rare that I lose a hand, even with like 3 bishops and a bunch of low numbers.
You claimed all this time that you would die for me... Why then are you so surprised when you hear your own eulogy?

I won mostly because of the guide. It worked fine. The reason I started losing was because I'd get crap hands with nothing but low numbers and no face cards.
I kill because I'm weak. Too weak to incapacitate an aggressor without killing them. Killing is easy. Not having to fight is hard.

I went in and played platoon. After 2 or 3 losses I learned the rules and won several hundred thousand tokens - don't remember the exact amount, it was enough to buy every prize(only had 2 tiers unlocked), of them babana and berries were 20x, and I still had 50k left. Later I used up my berries and babanas and came for a refill. Started playing platoon again and couldn't freaking win more than 4 in a row for 2.5 hours. After that I finally won 6 in a row but the dealer managed to hit every prediction so my winnings were abysmal, something like 20 or 40 k.

I checked out the AI abuse section of platoon guide now and will have my revenge tonight.

You can a few rounds easily w/o the AI abuse, but it's a lot more luck. It would be roughly equivalent of playing with a human, which isn't bad in terms of digital gambling (versus totally random games) but you'd still have to admit it's a good amount of luck.

BUT it's far less risky to abuse the AI in addition to using tactics, eliminating most of the luck and enabling you to win 5-6 rounds almost gauranteed each time. If your only goal is to get chips abusing the AI is the quickest way. You'd do yourself a disservice not too if you only wanted chips.

Basically winning big without cheating the AI would be around 10-90K chips at a time since you'd quit sooner to account for the higher risk, but if you abuse the AI it's easily 150-900K chips at a time lol.

The idea that 2+wizard is better than bishop+wizard is not as straightforward and actually very useful, too. At least I did not bother to analyze the game that much myself.
