    As always, at the O*T Arena, Zento!

    Rules remain as originally given here :

    Stratics Forums

    We've been asked to clarify one thing - the 'slimes' wild card, you do not have to define what you want the slime to function as until you have summoned all 5 'cards' for your hand, it is NOT necessary to nominate what it counts as immediately after you summon it!

    Bobar's 5 million prize for the first 'full house' hand to be summoned is still up for grabs, we got close but so far nobody has managed it - maybe this week.... ;)

    Start time of 8PM UK time - anyone welcome, we'll even have some scrolls available for those not quite mage enough to do their own summoning :)

    The link for the old 'rules' post seems not to work any more, so the important bits are :

    The idea is fairly simple - we pair up mages, each in turn goes into the arena and summons their five, which we score according to the following :

    Card 'equivalents' -

    Ace - highest card - Chicken (We are the ECL after all...)
    King - Alligator
    Queen - Snow Leopard
    Jack - Scorpion
    14 - Giant Serpent
    13 - Hind
    12 - Rabbit
    11 - Polar Bear
    10 - Black Bear
    9 - Grizzly Bear
    8 - Llama
    7 - Eagle
    6 - Grey Wolf
    5 - Pig
    4 - Horse
    3 - Gorilla
    2 - Walrus

    Wild card - Slime, counts as anything you choose it to represent!

    Hand rankings, highest to lowest :

    Five of a kind - all the same creature
    Flush - all reptile/non mammal or all mammal.
    Four of a kind
    Full house - three of one kind of creature, two of another
    Three of a kind
    Two pairs
    One pair
    High 'card'.

    The second mage comes in, casts their spells - and unless things have been very unusual, we should have a winner!
