How to play poker in Weird West

Know when to hold 'em!

Poker can be played in Saloons with NPCs, but the game is a little different than normal poker. In Weird West, poker is played with one card and whoever has the highest is the winner.

To play poker, you must first find an NPC who is looking to play. An NPC who wants to play will say something like "all these cards and nobody to play with." Approach them and they will ask you to play poker.
