The Kingdom of Daytar Leamay
Played with a standard deck of cards. Each player is dealt 5 cards, they then bet and have the option of discarding any number of cards and drawing the same number. A final round of bets is made before all players reveal their cards. Players may choose to fold out if they do not wish to continue to bet. Ideally the players are attempting to either get a run of 4 or 5 cards in sequence or have all the cards in their hand the same color (black or red). Once the cards are revealed players count the number of points based on the face value of their cards (face=10, ace=1) only cards with matching colors or contained in a run are counted. Players with a run of 4 or 5 cards count their points and double them (to represent the difficulty of getting runs) The player with the greatest number of points in their hand wins the pot. In the event of a tie players split the pot evenly.
