We've all been there. You and your friends are having a home poker game and people have had a few beers.
A couple of your buddies are a little inexperienced and they can't seem to keep up.
They're having a hard time remembering when it's their turn, or to burn a card before dealing, or how much the big blind is, or what the chip denominations are, or not to string bet, or ... well, you get the picture.
Sure, you could get mad and yell at them to pay attention. We've all gone down that road. A better solution is to just watch this video and learn five super-simple poker games that even your drunk friends can understand.

Pro Tip #1 – Turn Over Cards One at a Time
Since there's no betting or bluffing in these games, most of the fun comes from the sweat.
To maximize your sweat every hand we recommend everyone turn over one card at a time throughout the hand so everyone can watch.
If you're playing blind Omaha, for example, everyone can turn over one card before the flop, one on the flop, one on the turn and the last card after the river.
That way no one knows who's got the best hand until the end and everyone can sweat each card that's turned over.
Pro Tip #2 - Discard After the Flop in Estonian Twist, Crazy Dutchie
To ramp up the action in games #3 and #4, just hold onto three cards until after you see the flop, and then choose your discard.
Waiting until after the flop to discard will result in more big hands and more exciting sweats to see who's going to win.
Alternately, skip the discard completely and play the hand with three cards all the way to showdown for even more big hands.
