Star Trek Fizzbin

F is for Fizzbin so what gives? You've heard of this classic Star Trek game I'm sure - cos like everyone wants "A Piece of the Action" right? A real game that requires intelligence, not some kids game!  Captain James T. Kirk made up the perplexing game of Fizzbin to fluster his captors on Sigma Lotia II. Heres how the cards square up.

 Players are dealt six cards, except the player on the dealers right, who gets seven. The second card is turned up, except on Tuesdays, and two jacks make half a fizzbin. Don't bother trying to get a royal fizzbin as the odds are astronomical. Feel like playing?

Play Long and Prosper Trekkers

  7. I swear, the only thing my dad took away from Star Trek was fizzbin. Every-so-often he'd try to play with me or my sister. As least *he* was amused... ;)

  8. There's an episode of DS9 where Quark mentions that he knows how to play Fizzbin. So apparently it is a real game in the Star Trek universe, or (more likely in my mind) it became a real game sometime after Kirk invented it.
