This can be a little confusing as it doesn’t explain too well in-game, but luckily it’s not timed!
Here are the possible hands you can make:
A “pair” is getting 2 cards that are the same. So two blues and the other 3 can be random.
Spectrum - all cards are random
2 pair - 2 same colors, 2 same colors, 1 random
3 of a kind - 3 same colors, 2 random
Full house - 3 same, 2 same
4 of a kind - 4 same colors, 1 random
Flush - (I’m assuming all are the same colors....I haven’t tried it yet nor have I played poker lol)
Now the objective is to avoid the skull hand (it starts from the “pair” and works its way up), but you also want to do a better hand (so “spectrum” would beat a “pair”, “2 pair” would beat a “spectrum” and/or a “pair”, etc.
I aimed for “Full House” and “4 of a kind” and tried to avoid doing any moves lower than “3 of a kind”. It helps deciding what colors you want to do and then seeing if you can do 2 sets of them (ex: there’s a blue set on the left and a possible blue set on the right). Another useful tip is to do your moves from top to bottom so that your shift isn’t so dramatic and unpredictable.
Be patient! It may take a handful of times and sometimes you just get unlucky RNG. Try to plan your moves! Hope this helps anyone revisiting this one!
