Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. I'm playing five card draw. What's the only of these hand types that can beat mine?

Answer: Royal flush

I have a straight flush in my hand, which means five cards, all of the same suit, in sequence. The only hand that can beat a straight flush in poker is a royal flush. A royal flush is a 10, jack, queen, king, and ace all in the same suit. This is a rare hand, as the pre-draw odds of getting a royal flush are less than 0.001%.

A straight flush is slightly less difficult to obtain, with pre-draw odds of less than 0.002%.
2. I'm playing a variation of Gin Rummy where this move is allowed. What version of Gin Rummy am I playing?

Answer: Round-the-Corner Gin Rummy

In Round-the-Corner Gin Rummy, you may play the ace as either a high or low card, and sequences can go "around the corner." This means, for instance, that you can play K-A-2. In most versions of Rummy, this move is not allowed, and the ace must be played either high or low. This game is also sometimes called Round-the-Horn Gin Rummy.
3. My opponent and I have each turned over a single card. My nine beats his six. What are we playing?

Answer: War

War is also known as "Battle" in the United Kingdom. In this game, the deck is divided evenly among two players. Each player turns over a card at a time, and the higher card takes the lower card. If two cards of the same value are turned over, "war" is declared, and additional cards must be played to determine the winner.

This easy game is very popular among young children because it requires only basic counting skills and no strategy.
4. This is my hand at the start of the game. Which of these card games am I playing?

Answer: Gin Rummy

This hand shows ten cards, so, of the above choices, I can only be playing Gin Rummy. Cantrell draw is another name for five card draw, a variant of poker in which each player is dealt five cards at the start of the game. In Go Fish, only five cards are dealt to each player at the start of the game.

In War, each of the two players has half of the deck to start, and the deck is kept face down. In Gin Rummy, each player is dealt ten cards to start.
5. My opponent asks me, "Do you have any tens in your hand." I reply, "No, go ____." What word is missing from this blank?

Answer: fish

Go Fish begins with five cards being dealt to each of two (or more) players. The first player asks another play for a card of a particular face value, for example, "Kim, do you have any tens?" If Kim has a ten in her hand, she must hand it over. If not, she tells the asker to "Go fish" and the asker draws a card from the stock pile.

The object is to make and discard pairs of two (or, in some versions, books of four) until a player has no cards left in his or her hand.
6. I'm playing pyramid solitaire. What's my next move?

Answer: Combine the 9 and the 4 and remove them

In pyramid solitaire, you try to eliminate the pyramid by combining pairs to equal thirteen and then removing them from the pyramid. A jack is worth 11, and a queen is worth 12, so I cannot combine the queen and the two - that would give me 14. The nine and the two would give me eleven. I can, however, combine the nine and the four to get to thirteen and remove those two cards. I can then draw from my stock pile one at a time to try to get another number that will make thirteen and continue to clear the pyramid.
7. I'm playing five card stud. My opponent has four tens showing. What does that face-down card have to be for me to beat him?

Answer: A six of clubs

A six of clubs will give me a straight flush, which is five cards in sequence of the same suit. (In this case, the four, five, six, seven, and eight of clubs). A straight flush beats four of a kind. If my opponent has four tens showing, it's not possible for him to have a straight flush, the only hand that can beat me.

Five card stud is the earliest form of stud poker and was thought to have been developed during the American Civil War.
8. I'm playing Old Maid. My opponent has just discarded a pair of queens. Do I have the old maid in my hand?

Answer: Yes

To play Old Maid, players must remove one queen from the deck before dealing out all of the cards to the players. This leaves an uneven number of queens (three). The extra queen is the old maid. Therefore, if your opponent discards a pair of queens, you know the queen in your hand is the old maid.

Alternately, players may remove three of the four queens from the deck, and the one remaining queen is then the Old Maid.

Old Maid is a Victorian-era card game and is thought to have derived from a drinking game in which the loser must pay for the drinks.
9. These are the stockpiles I have dealt from my half of the deck. I have turned the top card in each of the five piles face up. Which of the following card games am I definitely NOT playing?

Answer: Durak

"Spit," "Slam," and "Speed" are alternate names for the same card game. The game begins with the entire deck of cards being split between two players. Each player then deals five stacks of cards in front of themselves from their half of the deck. The first stack has one card, the second two, the third three, the fourth four, and the fifth five. Players then turn over the top card in each pile, as shown here.

Durak is a traditional Russian card game. In it, each player is dealt six cards (or seven, depending on the size of the deck used).
10. I'm playing 500 Rum. On a previous turn, my opponent laid out a set that included the four, five, and six of diamonds. Just now, I drew this card. Can I play it off my opponent's meld?

Answer: Yes

In 500 Rum, the process is to pick, play, and then discard. The cards you play are kept on the table in front of you. While you need three cards to play a new meld, you can also play off of existing sets and sequences, both your own and your opponent's. In this case, the three of diamonds can be played off your opponent's sequence. If you drew a seven of diamonds, you could also play it off your opponent's sequence. Sequences may not go round the corner in 500 Rum.
