It's Poker with a dvorak twist. I'd be glad to hear any suggestions on how to improve it. I'd like to credit the Poker deck for providing the framework.

Special Rules

Your Bank

You may play cards either as Things or as Actions. If you play a card as a Thing, it stays in your Bank and its text is not performed. You may have up to five cards in your Bank. If at any time you have more than five cards in your Bank, put the excess cards in your Discard Pile.

The River

Any player may use cards in the River to help them form a hand.

Cards as Actions

You may also play a card as an Actions. If you do so, perform its text and put it the Discard Pile.

Showdown

Any player who can form a five-card hand using the cards in their Bank and/or in the River may declare Showdown at the beginning of their turn. Starting with the declaring player, each player may play one Thing or Action. Actions played during Showdown may only target players who have not played their last thing or action. Once everyone has done so, the player that can form the best five-card hand is the winner. If no player can form a five-card hand, the declarer's turn ends and the game instead continues as normal
