Card Games That Don’t Suck: Ricochet Poker

four houses? quinns are you thinking of harry potter, no we can't play aces low
Oh my GOODNESS! Today marks the start of a brand-new series for Shut Up & Sit Down.

Every two weeks, Card Games That Don't Suck will teach you how to play a game that we love, that you can play with an ordinary deck of cards. In doing so, we hope to make table gaming more accessible and wide-ranging, and maybe even learn a little bit of history along the way.

But there's no history in our first instalment! Ricochet Poker is, in fact, a brand new game by designer James Ernest, and we think it's just superb.

Enjoy, everybody!
