Little Myth Marker by Robert Lynn Asprin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ah, Skeeve now feels like he ought to really change his name to Stu. Gary Stu.
When things get become THIS easy to him no matter how many obstacles or bad hands get in his way, I WANT to see him fail spectacularly rather than just have the whole implausibility highlighted in grand style.
But that being said, the absurdity worked and the stakes (including the resolution) still gave us a fine playbook for cardsharping. Or I really ought to say, anti-cardsharping. Or should it be null-cardsharping?
The point is, it's magical. A card game for the Myth. :)
