Trending! A Brand New Card Game - da Joey
The back story to da Joey
The card game was named after my brother. Who was approximately 120 miles away when we first made up, played and named the card game after him. Meet Joey:
Why come up with a new card game and name it after someone who is nowhere near the table?
Well my parents, my sister and I were playing cards when we noticed it was boring. We play dealer’s choice, which is usually some poker hand (5 card draw, Texas hold’em, Seven No Peak, etc.) Whatever the dealer wants to play. So why was it boring? Because my brother wasn't there to play his made up, complicated games that we all groan about when it is his turn to deal.
Some of his creations:
The Cliffy Card is Wild: Any five which is now called the Cliffy Card is wild. It’s like getting a free ride to Boone Village.
Huh??? When I was a young teenager, I wanted to go with my brother and his friends to an Indianapolis Indian’s Baseball Game. I begged my brother to let me go. I was so uncool then. He finally relented and said, if it is okay with Cliff (the one who was driving), then I could go. So off I went to chase down Cliff, sing-songingly calling out Cliff-y. Well over the years the location of where we were headed got switched from a baseball game to a small strip mall (Boone Village) where everyone in our town hung out. Hence, if you have the Cliffy Card, it's like getting a free ride to Boone Village.
Psychic Pass The Trash: If you do not know the rules of Pass The Trash, you've got to look this game up. It’s fun, fun, fun. In normal Pass The Trash, you get to look at your card before determining if you want to pass it to your neighbor in hopes of a better card. You only have to beat one person's card, so you don’t have to have the lowest card. In Psychic Pass The Trash, you leave your card face down, without looking at it and wave your hand over the card, using your psychic powers to determine if you want to keep the card or trade the card. Everyone turns their card up at one time to determine if they had made the correct choice!….
In order to know how to play da Joey, you must know how to play 5 card draw. If you know how to do that--skip this section----
How to play five card draw. This game has slight variations, but this is generally how most people play it. Up to five people can play. You pre-bet which is called an ante. The ante is a dime when we play. Then each player is dealt five cards. Your objective is to make the best poker hand. You will get to exchange up to four cards if you are still in the game. First, starting with the player to the left of the dealer, you get an option to bet on the hand you were initially dealt. After the round of betting, the dealer will start with the person on their left and ask them how many cards they want. They can choose none to four. After everyone, including the dealer has a chance of exchanging their cards, there is another round of betting. Afterwards, you show your cards. Best hand, still in the game, wins!!!
da Joey - A New And Exciting Card Game!
Ante up and the dealer deals everyone 5 cards. The Cliffy Card (any 5) is wild!!! You make a bet on your initial cards, but the kicker here is that you must discard 4 of the 5 cards. Yes, I said it, You must discard 4 out of the 5 cards. You could have all 4 Cliffy Cards, you could be sitting there with a royal flush and you are going to have to keep one card and discard the rest. This is where the fun is. The moaning, the groaning, the no way, I am not discarding 4 cards. This is when you will get your best initial hand ever!!!! After a round of betting, whoever is still in will discard four of their cards and the dealer will provide them with four new cards. Another round of betting after you get your new hand. Then you turn your cards over. Best poker hand wins!!!!
