Barney's Gambling Secret Revealed
27 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Lily and Marshall decide to elope to Atlantic City to get married and the gang drop everything to go with them to celebrate the occasion. However getting married in Atlantic City proves to be harder than they ever anticipated. Can Barney win them the money to get married by a captain at sea.

Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) actually spoke reasonably accurate Mandarin Chinese during this episode. The game they played can be loosely translated as "Can or Cannot?"

Once again Neil Patrick Harris brings the laughs and Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel also excellent again too!! They are quickly becoming my favourites behind NPH.

A bonus point in the rating for the scene where Barney plays the game.
