Anybody know what the game they play occasionally on FF is? It's the one with 6 sided cards (I believe with fruit on them?). Is there any info on the game?

Sorry if this has been brought up before, there doesn't appear to be a search function for the forum.

Looks like a variant on bid euchre.

I would not assume the name of the game is "tall card" just because that's an aspect of gameplay. In euchre a certain suit is "trump" and the dealer is forced to claim the up card if no one orders it up.

the movie is not the Series. Only the facts have been changed, to irritate the innocent; the names of the actors and characters remain the same


One thing we're sure of, from Shindig, is that there is an ante, betting, and card substitution, so the game has more in common with poker than with any whist-derivative game.

In her commentary Jane Espenson says the name of the game is "Tall Card".
