    Deadlands Weird West Duels

    I have spent part of the evening reading the rules for the new Deadlands. I had read some of the DDR rules, but am by no means an expert.

    I notice in the ruleset the duels require giving each person two hole cards to play a hand of texas hold 'em. I can't find a way to give the cards out face down. I think I saw videos in the DDR set that had a poker table, but I'm not finding any way to do something like that in DDWW.

    Any thoughts on how to handle duels?

    I have pointed this out to Ikael, here is me testing out how to do it currently:

    (22) Deadlands: The Weird West Dueling - YouTube
    My players just defeated an army, had a dogfight with aliens, machine-gunned the zombies, stormed the tower, became Legendary and died heroically

    Yours are still on combat round 6

    The canonical, basic setting is referred to as the "Weird West" due to the juxtaposition of the Western setting with the horrific and fantastical elements of the game.

    If possible, I'd like it too. I used it sometimes kust like that in the saloon while Roleplaying. Better that a gaming die test

    Except Ikael - not that he doesn't like it but the code broke a long time ago and he did not write it in the first place.

    Thanks Doswelk. That was very a very helpful option, though as you said, not helpful for pvp, thankfully I tend to avoid that.

    But I have had players play an "NPC" if they wanted to join for a session, yes, sometimes even a key baddie. Throws other PCs off the first time it happens, they don't expect the character controlled by a player to be bad. haha

    I believe you could simply drag and drop the cards directly to each player portraits, they wouldn't be able to see each other's cards AFAIK. And then when it's time to reveal, the GM could simply drag those cards from each player hand into the CT.

    That's awesome, did not know you could do that!

    For your information, I am planning feature for the ruleset which will allow you do duels properly. For now, you can use Dr0W's suggested method. The only concern is that GM will see player cards. Like said, with upcoming ruleset update there will be proper way to do this.
