In this game of bets, each player must create the best card combination in order to win the pot. You'll have the chance to improve your hand, but you won't know how well it stands against your opponent's - and will have, nonetheless, to choose between raising the stake of the bet or folding and leaving all tokens to your adversaries... even though they may be bluffing.
The game of poker can be understood by children, and we recommend it to players aged 10+. That is, if they're betting the included tokens, not money. In most places gambling (involving money) is illegal to the underaged, and you may have to abide by local regulations. Each game of poker takes but a few minutes, and many games are played in one session. This version is designed for 2-6 players, but you can print more tokens and have a couple more players, if you choose.
No one is sure about the origins of poker. The game won notoriety in the United States of America, but some claim it actually came from France, made it to New Orleans and then spread throughout the country thanks to the Mississipi river.
The oldest records that surely refer to poker date back to the 1850s, but the game went through quite a few changes since then, including adopting the 52 card deck instead of the 20 card deck originally used.
Although already popular in the US, poker gained worldwide fame in the 1970s with the creation of the World Series of Poker, and is now considered to be the most popular card game in the world.
Notice: oddly, some governments around the world prohibit bets or games of chance. Although poker is a game of skill, not chance, it may be illegal to play it for money or for something with monetary value. If you can't help but live under such restrictions, we still recommend you play the game with tokens only.
