Missouri City Backhand is by far one of the most exciting card games I have ever played. This is not because I invented it, but because I cannot stop playing it. This game is the crown jewel of the Backhand series and completes what has become an obsession of sorts for myself and a select few. The concepts of this invention combine and build upon its predecessors by introducing the final component in what has developed into a unique, fast-paced, competitive strategy-focused "Vegas style" card game which now pits two players against each other, with the dealer fulfilling the role more of a facilitator than a participant.
The objective is simple, win your hand against the dealer then beat your opponent to win the game!
DETERMINING THE WINNER
There are too many scenarios that can occur during a hand and therefore impossible to address each one individually, but this document shall set the boundaries of game play as a guide for any situation that may occur to the best of my knowledge and understanding of this invention.
Once the dealer hand and both initial player hands are dealt, the Ace Rule is satisfied and which player goes first has been established, the hand shall begin. Each player will abide by the same rules set forth in Buffalo Bayou backhand. Their opponents hand will have absolutely no effect on the outcome of their hand in any way. All cards are dealt face up in this invention as they are in the other two games. Therefore, if the green seat goes first, the hand options are based on the green seat’s initial hand value and hand type just as the other two games. Once the green seat player decides their play, the red seat will then make their choice in the same fashion. Game play will continue in this fashion until each hand is resolved independently.
What happens next is what is so very special about this invention. You see, once each seat has resolved their hands, you will have two individual results for each player; but how do you determine a game winner? Let’s first review how each hand of Buffalo Bayou backhand can end:
Each of these individual hand outcomes can occur for our two players during a game of Missouri City backhand and are used to determine which player wins the game.
***Note: Player hands which result in a stalemate (between the player and the dealer), said hand shall be considered “unsuccessful,” and therefore treated in the manner set forth in the above outcomes.
In this game, there are a few new terms as well. First, the term “seat” will be addressed. When used in this game, the term “seat” shall refer to one of the players.
Since there are two players then there are only two “seats” and each seat shall be referred to as the “red seat” and “green seat.”
Of course, using colors to distinguish between seats can be modified according to house rules, but for the purposes of this document, “red” and “green” will be used to differentiate between the two players periodically.
