If you're looking for a great home game you can play with your friends, think about playing anaconda. In anaconda, each player is dealt seven cards. There's a round of betting. Then, everyone passes three cards to their left, and there's another round of betting. That means that even if you're dealt a straight flush, you have to pass one of the cards away, them's the poker rules! After that you pass two cards back to the right, and there's a final round of betting.
A lot of the strategy is guessing which cards your opponent will pass back, and also guessing which cards your other opponent doesn't want back. So teach your friends how to play poker like a real snake – anaconda!
