Day -1:As comis stated, I'm going to deal the first hand of cards to each member tomorrow. That way everyone will know what knife or tool they need to start the challenge on 01 February (Day 01). Comis will deal my hand so that awl will be above board and there will be no conflict of interest. After awl, there are Gummy Bears and bragging rights at stake in this first round. We thought it would be useful to deal a hand to comis today to better communicate the way the challenge will be run and allow for some questions to be answered before dealing the first hand to everyone. So.....here goes......This is comis' official starting hand for the Gummy Bear round, dealt from a deck of 52 cards that were well shuffled:(Image removed from quote.)OK.... So this hand is kinda crap....but offers some interesting possibilities.....♦︎ This hand is a "high card" 8 of Diamonds♣︎ Since Diamonds is his suit, comis will start the challenge with one (1) and only one (1) SAK. He must post a photo his one (1) SAK everyday from Day 01 through Day 07. He cannot rotate through different SAKs; he gets one (1) SAK for the week. ♥︎ On or after Day 07, and up until Day 14, comis can draw (exchange) up to three new cards. To do so he designates the cards he want to keep, and the rest will be replaced.♠︎ If comis had drawn an Ace, he could have drawn up to four cards....but he didn't get that lucky....so he can only draw one to three cards, depending on what he wants to do with his hand. ♦︎ If comis wants to stick with his one SAK for the first half of the challenge, he does not have to draw anymore cards (but there is no way he'll win bragging rights or the gummy bears with an 8 of Diamonds. We will tease him.....or at least I will....'cuz I'm mean like that.)
Not long now til we get dealt out cards I just hope I can deal with what I get dealt
Hmmm...thanks to my first hand, I have a feeling this hand will either go big or it would go home. I used to tell my roommates not to talk to the TV, why do I get the feeling this may happen in the challenge?
So exciting I hope I end up with a decent hand
Me, too! I’m worried I’ll end up with a grapefruit spoon and a shoelace.
So glad to see this live Also glad Nix is explaining what the cards mean, it may be the wrong time to say this but i have no clue how to play poker or any other card game for that matter, in fact i don't even own a set of cards so i don't know about flushes and straights, Thanks for explaining what has to be carried
@ReamerPunch(Image removed from quote.)♥︎ A pair of Deuces (and the lead hand!)! This means you start the challenge with one (1) SAK and one (1) Multitool. You lucky devil....♥︎ You may draw up to three (3) cards beginning on Day 07.
@ Borg(Image removed from quote.)♦︎ Jack of Diamonds high card -- you start with one (1) SAK. Comis knows how you feel......♦︎ You may draw up to three (3) cards starting on day 07.
Fuzzy seems like my kind of guy.
@ McStitchy --(Image removed from quote.)♦︎ Queen high straight (whoa! talk about luck of the Irish....) -- you start the challenge with three (3) multitools and two (2) SAKs! (You lucky devil, you....)♦︎ You may draw (and we would all appreciate it if you did) up to three (3) cards starting on Day 07. Again, you may draw up to three (3) cards starting on Day 07. ♦︎ You now have the leading hand.
