I recently had the idea to start a Poker game on SD. Hopefully, if all goes right, this will be a proof of concept for the game. I intend for it to be a full, and working game.
I believe the game can work, I just need to run it through first to see how to improve it.
Hence, this is a Beta Test.
It Is also my first time ever acting as Moderator for a game here. ((Wish Me Luck))
We will be playing Texas Fold Em. Yes, that is FOLD em.
**I have Pre-dealt the cards, and to make it easier on myself, I have put the cards into a spreadsheet. I used a standard 52 deck, No Wild Cards or Jokers. The Deck was shuffled multiple times, and I also shuffled. I burned cards for the Board. **
The rules are real simple:
The game is based on Texas Hold Em. Therefore, basic knowlege of Texas Hold Em is a prerequisite.
I will send all players a Private Message with 5 pairs of pocket cards.
**At no time can you rearrange your pocket cards. [Once a card has been paired to another pocket card, it can not change.] **
All of the cards “dealt” to you are active in the game. With one exception.
Here is where Texas Fold Em gets it’s name:
3.Before the Flop, Turn, River, and Showdown, you MUST fold one of your pocket hands.
4.You will be left with a remaining pocket hand. That hand will then compared to other players’ remaining pocket hands. Using Texas Hold Em rules, and Regular Poker Rankings.
I am looking for Four (4) Players to sign up to play.
[ If you do the Math, you will find that this is the Maximum number we can have. ]
I have a few Ideas I might throw in to hopefully balance out the fact that no one can read Tells.
I will ask for input before I test them out. If the game decides against it, I will not act on the ideas. -These Ideas would reveal cards no longer in play.
For example the Nth player’s folded hand is revealed to all AFTER the Nth folding round.
I would reveal the Burned Cards.
