Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the above location.

On a long caching holiday you spot the sign to Las Vegas and can't resist the urge to veer off and try your luck at the tables. After all, with the trouble you've been having finding caches on this damn trip, your luck has GOT to change.

The next morning you wake up with the feeling that a lizard has used your mouth for a potty then died there, and that elves are playing bongos on your head. You wipe away the gunk in your eyes and find yourself draped in spaghetti behind a dumpster in an alley. Trying to push aside the cobwebs of memory, you vaguely remember something about Elvis, a wedding chapel and Britney Spears. You stumble around the corner into the Cash-Cache Lounge (why does that have a familiar ring?) and ask the bartender for the hair of the dog...

Surprised to see you still alive, Bob the bartender serves what you ask for and gives you a run-down on last night's events. Hearing more than you really care to, your ears prick up when he asks you where you stashed that cache you were so proudly showing off to everybody in the lounge. "What cache?," you ask. "You know, the plastic tupperware cache with the hammered-metal finish?" "I don't remember," you answer sheepishly. "Well, you never did tell us where you put it, but the table is still set up like you left it." "What table?" "The card table in the back." Bob takes you back to the table and shows you the layout of a card game you no longer recognize. "We couldn't figure it out and you left with some blonde diva before we could get the solution from you. How DO you play this game?" You scratch your aching head: "I wish I knew, I wish I knew..."

Additional Hints (Decrypt)

[The tree cover is very heavy and the cache was set under very wet and overcast conditions. Allow a lot of slop for the coordinates and please e-mail (do not post) your coordinates if they are off considerably.]
