We have a special tradition in our family: we always play poker at Christmas. You're probably thinking, "Yeah, are they crazy!".
It all started a few years ago. My brother's kids - teenagers, rather - were very bored at Christmas and just pressed their cell phones. My father pulled a poker set out of the closet and off we went. Since then, everyone has been looking forward to the traditional poker battle on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.
My children (14, 11, 5) are now gradually getting to the age of playing poker. I noticed that it is still difficult for them to recognize the poker cards for all conceivable hands, e.g. flush or a straight. Also the betting rules/orders in Hold'em are not so easy to grasp.
The solution: we (my children and I) develop a special poker card game for the whole family, which makes it easier to get started, but does not compromise on the valid poker rules. After we took on the game Doppelkopf in 2019 by means of two successful Kickstarter campaigns, we now want to improve the next card game classic for you.
