Another fun home game you can play is called baseball. Baseball is played just like seven-card stud, with some special rules. In seven-card stud, you receive two cards face down and one up, then three more up, and then one down. There is a round of betting after each face up card, and also one after the face down card. The twist is that 3's and 9's are wild (three outs in an inning, nine innings in a game).
*If you want to really spice it up, play “Rock ‘n Jock baseball” where anytime you're dealt a 3 you have to match the pot or fold. If you're sick of playing Texas hold em, it's a nice change of pace.
