Only Erik and Mrs. Johnson can play poker for now


Strip poker minigame is a card minigame that is provided in Mrs. Johnson and June’s route. This activity is available just before the first branching and can be played over indefinitely with Erik and Mrs. Johnson at night. It’s based on a variation of Texas hold’em with specific game rules.

Instructions

Glossary

hole cards 
Two cards each player receive individually at the beginning of each play.
community cards 
Up to five cards shared by all players.
hand 
Set of cards that each player forms by combining the hole cards with a pool of five gradually revealed community cards.
call 
Match the bet with another cloth. If no opponents call a player’s bet or raise, he wins the round.
fold 
Forfeit the current bet. No further bets are required by the player, but he cannot win.
all in 
Bet all of the clothes in the current hand. They may now hold onto their cards for the remainder of the deal as if they had called every bet.
action 
Player’s turn to act.
showdown 
When remaining players expose and compare their hands to determine the winner.

Screen

The screen is divided into four distinct areas:

  • The upper left corner displays the clothes, the hidden hole cards and the last action of Erik.
  • The upper right corner gives the same information about Mrs. Johnson.
  • The bottom of the screen is reserved for main character, with his cards revealed, and three action buttons.
  • In the center are the five community cards dealt face down.

Rules

Like any decent strip poker game, bets are made up of players’ clothes, with the number of items fixed at six per player.

Each player is dealt with two hole cards face down. A round of betting begins and you can either Call to bet more; Fold to discard your hand (Erik’s and Mrs. Johnson’s bets played from the time you fold will then be omitted at the start of the next round); or declare All in. Erik and Mrs. Johnson then choose their actions, either to follow you or not. At the end of each round, a new community card is face up and added to the players’ hands.

The player who wins the play doesn’t take off any items of clothing; those who lost strip the clothes they wagered. If someone bets and all other players fold, then the remaining player is the winner. If two or more participants remain after the final betting round, a showdown occurs: the player with the best poker hand made from the seven cards wins. If the best hand is shared by more than one player, then everyone loses.

A new play starts if each player still has at least one cloth to bet; otherwise, if the main character, Erik or Mrs. Johnson is naked, it ends.

Tip

It is recommended to bet only when your hand is strong with high cards. Fold when you don’t have a good enough hand.
