Odometer Poker
 
OK, everybody's played dollar bill poker, where you use the serial number on a bill to make a poker hand. Same thing. Almost everyone now has a car that has a seven digit odometer. Take those seven digits, and build a five card poker hand.

For example: Your odometer reads 157,556.5 miles, you have four fives. 144,449.4 miles, and you have five fours. 259,299.1, you have a full house, 9's over 2's. For the purposes of this contest, five zeros would beat four nines. Of course, there are no face cards, aces, or jokers. Nothing wild. We're playing stud, cuz, that's how I roll.

You have until Sunday, Nov. 7 at 11:59:59pm to post a picture of your odometer poker hand (a pic of your odometer). Maybe this will keep someone from building a ringer hand.

The winner will have the privilege of saying "Yay, I won!"


ETA: In the unlikely event of an unbreakable tie, the Dwellar with the best cleavage wins.

And tonight are you going to party?

classicman 11-04-2010 09:40 PM

noooo of course not. I'm going to do my part in saving the environment ;)

Spexxvet 11-05-2010 12:07 PM

Luckily, might odometer keeps mileage alphabetically. Right now I'm at AAAAA :biggrin:

Rhianne 11-05-2010 12:10 PM

My odometer only 'deals' me six numbers.

Gravdigr 11-05-2010 02:13 PM

You only need five...seven is just the number of cards. You just won't have as many cards to choose from.

Also, if you have a bike, motorcycle, four-wheeler or anything else with an odometer (of at least five digits), that'll work also.

Anyone cheats, and I will fart in your exact direction.

If no one has 00007.0, cuz, 5 is more than 4. No, really.

I'm in.

Four of a kind.

glatt 11-05-2010 02:38 PM

Can we bluff? How does that work? Cause I've got a 7 card straight.

Gravdigr 11-05-2010 02:42 PM

I don't know how you'd bluff in this case.

And those 7's look pretty strong...


ETA: No use posting if you can't beat four sevens.

Sundae 11-05-2010 02:49 PM

I don't understand this at all.
And the only poker I know how to play is Strip Poker, which is effectively Pontoon anyway. And the only real rule is to pretend you are embarrassed and don't want to take your clothes off so the man you are playing with thinks he is getting away with something, when really you're after the same thing.

BUT.
I will take a photo of Dad's mileage.
And as I am completely clueless you'll have to tell me if I should get him to drive around a bit more.
Because you're so clever and I'm so silly and I really don't want to lose at this you know (innocent look, removing socks)

You can strip. In fact, please do.

Just remember to take pictures of your hand...and anything else you uncover!

:p:

Rhianne 11-05-2010 04:07 PM

Thanks for that Gravdigr. Like Sundae Girl I don't have much idea about poker so perhaps someone will help me here - I think I have a 'straight' and since I've decided they're all hearts that would be a 'straight flush'?.

4-5-6-7-8

Shit - I'm gonna have to hope I drive into a good hand...

You guys got your "game on" so far!

Well, we don't got no suits, so a straight it is. Good hand, but, four sevens have it so far.

Yeah, same here. It was my idea, so I should've waited for a ringer hand, before posting. I don't think I can even drive to a better hand than four sevens.:yelsick:

classicman 11-07-2010 10:30 PM

I fold. I got nothing.

Gravdigr 11-08-2010 04:39 PM

Well, I got squat in a contest that was my own damn idea. I had a straight, but then BigV came along with those damnable sevens.

BigV you are the wiener. Congrats.:mad:

classicman 11-08-2010 04:42 PM

IT was actually kinda cool - I looked at my odometer more than usual to see what was possible coming up.

Aw, thanks man. No need to be mad though--all the girls say the same thing to me.

footfootfoot 11-15-2010 10:42 PM

I'd say for the sake of the game, since we don't have suits, that a straight flush would have to be 5 consecutive numbers. e.g 23456 would be a straight flush, and 32645 would be an ordinary straight. It wouldn't work for regular straight though, I guess that's still out.

That might work.

plthijinx 04-07-2011 12:49 AM

so are 0's high or low? is it 10's? so you have 5's full of 10's or 5's full of 0's?

What about co-opting the rules from Yahtzee? They have straights and such and no suits too.

I vote tens. There are no zeros in poker.

Well, I suppose you didn't specify which year...

Gravdigr 04-07-2011 04:20 PM

We started disregarding the deadlines months ago, so, I took the liberty.

I was also running out of pics to post.

Gravdigr 04-07-2011 04:21 PM

BTW, I think zeros should be Aces.

But, then again, I'm Sheening ATM.

jimhelm 04-07-2011 05:19 PM

Sheening?

does that mean you're doing enough coke to kill a grizzly bear?

Gravdigr 04-07-2011 05:25 PM

Maybe not enough to kill one, but enough to fuck one. [/kidding]


ETA: Shoulda said WINNING!!, perhaps.

Gravdigr 04-07-2011 05:28 PM

Makes me think, what fun would doing coke be during the day?

I'm already up, and would be, coke or no.

TheMercenary 04-17-2011 09:53 PM

Are we talking Coke or Cocaine. Cause they are really different.

I like the page that I have it linked too - look halfway down, it talks about the genetic code of the blood. It's under the "downsides of banking cord blood". My doctor mentioned that part to me and I looked into it - it was my deciding factor not to.

monster 05-19-2011 11:21 AM

I'm guessing this one really is banned :lol:

plthijinx 05-22-2011 09:05 PM

wtf?? what does genetic code have to do with odometer poker? me thinks youz be right monie!

Hardly anyone banks cord blood. Just a few a year where I work. About the same number that have their heads cryogenically frozen.

did you crash while taking that?

glatt 10-03-2011 12:54 PM

I pulled over. The top row I saw coming, the bottom row was just pure dumb luck. I had purchased gas 11.1 miles earlier and reset the trip meter.

Happy Monkey 10-03-2011 02:09 PM

You should have got the spedometer up to 111 as well!

(OK, maybe just 11.)

I thought I had posted these.... Taken in a friend's wrangler this summer. we had swapped cars so I could sell him my trailer, and this happened on the way back:

Gravdigr 11-13-2011 05:35 PM

Two days ago, Momdigr's odo read 139,999.9, and I didn't have my camera.

infinite monkey 11-18-2011 11:32 AM

Gravdigr 11-29-2011 05:51 PM

nice!

It's more about the patterns than it is about a high poker hand.
