Today we would like to introduce you a new, exciting heads up poker game, called Five-O Poker.
In Five-O Poker, each player is dealt five cards face up, lined up in a row. Then, in turn, each player draws a card from the deck and places it face up on one of the five cards (columns) that they have. Eventually, each player will have 5 hands (columns) of five cards each. The game ends by matching each of the columns to the corresponding column of your opponent. The winner has the higher poker hand in three (or more) out of the five poker hands.
There are only two rules: 1) The fifth (and last) row of cards are placed face down, your opponent is not aware of what you have. 2) You cannot place a card in the next row until you have completed that row with 5 cards (can’t go onto the 3rd row, until the full 2nd row is placed, etc)
After playing dozens of games, we have no doubt that this game is going to be BIG success, because of its simplicity on the one hand and its sophistication on the other. The fact that the two players can see which cards are used and which are still in the deck, together with the strategy that each player can see what his opponent is trying to complete their hands with, requires players to be creative!
We enjoyed it thoroughly and advise you to try it out on Facebook!
