How to learn games...

I obviously know how slots work, and I get blackjack b/c it's so easy. I've also done several poker tournaments locally/for fun and know how to do texas hold em style. How do you learn all the other table games? I feel so intimidated walking up to a table and seeing others play. I don't want to go up and say 'can you take 10 minutes out to explain this game to me?'. Is there a place we can go to learn the basics for the games?

www.bodog.com Click on Casino, and practice anything you want. They don't have some of the more specialized games like Mississippi Stud, but it is a start.

Also, many casinos offer brief lessons on the various games. In my opinion, these lessons are no substitute for practicing online, but they are good for learning table etiquette which you can't really learn online.

From the Venetian website:

We currently offer complimentary gaming lessons seven days a week. You can learn Craps at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. , Roulette at noon, and Blackjack at 12:15 p.m. daily in the casino.

I've seen the craps lesson in action, and when it was over, they all came over to our craps table and were ready to put the lesson to use right away, raring to go. Most of the casinos offer lessons at the table games, just ask or look at the website for the times.
