Alright, after I get Bingo Party out, I plan on doing a "casual" poker game for the Xbox 360. I'm tired of only seeing poker games focus only on Texas Holdem and occasionally Omaha, so I'm going to do something drastic and focus on providing a wide variety of poker games.
What I want to know is, what poker games and variations do you play with your friends? There will be a few games that I won't include for programmatic/laziness reasons, such as Jack to open/Trips to win or passing style games, but I am open to including other variations.
For reference, I already have the following games implemented in "Poker Night" (names in caps because I am just copying from code):
- FIVE_CARD_STUD_BLIND* - All 5 cards dealt in the hole before betting.
- BASEBALL - Optional 4-up = extra card and 7-up = out.
- WILDCAT - Texas Hold'em, but you can replace your hole cards after betting the river.
- PAI_GOW_POKER - Just like the table game, only high/low hands split pot.
- MINI_PAI_GOW_POKER - Same, except dealt 5 cards and high hand is a 3 card hand.
- TEXAS_BLUFF - Texas Hold'em, but your hole cards are blind.
- TRIPLE_DRAW_LOWBALL - "2-7 Triple Draw"
- SINGLE_DRAW_LOWBALL - "2-7 Single Draw"
- FIVE_HI_LO - Five card A-5 Hi-Lo, 10 qualifies
- SEVEN_HI_LO - Seven card A-5 Hi-Lo, 8 qualifies
- OMAHA_HI_LO - Omaha A-5 Hi-Lo, 8 qualifies
*With or without wild cards
Am I missing anything obvious? Is there something that you just love to play?
