Countdown

This game has a wild card, determined only after all of the cards have been dealt. After the betting round that follows the deal of the seventh and final card, the number of players remaining in the game becomes the card number that is wild. If, for example, five players start this game, and after the last betting round of the game, only three players remain, then Threes are wild in everybody's hand.

Considering most poker games consist of a table of five to seven players, it's safe to assume in this one that only a low card is going to end up being wild. What is more, the challenge is trying to bet strategically as to plan the number of people that remain in the game.
