house rules - the place - the games - the players - the links
There are four categories of games here. Stud Games are games based on the 5-7 (give or take a few) card poker games in which players receive cards and cannot replace them (i.e. Draw Games). There are so many wacky variations on these games that the lines tend to get blurred. Draw Games are games in which players can opt to trade cards from their hands for new ones. Community Games typically have a set of shared cards that all players can use in their hand. Finally, the Other Crap section includes everything else that we didn't know what to do with. Often, these end up being some of the best game we play, although some of them do not even closely resemble a "poker" game.
The more popular games are marked with a next to them. For a more accurate listing of popular games, check out the statistics page (coming soon).
