This western-themed game is not just about gunslinging and horse riding, but also offers a variety of card games to keep you entertained. In this article, we’ll take a look at what card games are available in RDR2.

1. Poker

One of the most popular card games in RDR2 is poker.

This game is played with five cards, and the goal is to have the best hand possible. There are different variations of poker available in the game such as Texas Hold’em, Five Card Draw, and High-Low Split.

How to Play:

To play poker in RDR2, you need to find a table at one of the saloons in the game. Once you’ve found a table, sit down and wait for other players to join. You can start playing as soon as there are at least two players.

  • Each player is dealt two cards face down.
  • There are then several rounds of betting where players can either fold (quit), call (match the current bet), or raise (increase the bet).
  • The dealer then deals three community cards face up on the table.
  • Another round of betting takes place.
  • The dealer then deals one more community card followed by another round of betting.
  • The final community card is dealt followed by one last round of betting.
  • The player with the best five-card hand wins.

2. Blackjack

Another popular card game in RDR2 is blackjack. This game is also known as 21 and involves trying to get a higher hand than the dealer without going over 21.

How to Play:

To play blackjack in RDR2, you need to find a table at one of the saloons in the game. Once you’ve found a table, sit down and wait for the dealer to start the game.

  • Each player is dealt two cards face up, and the dealer is dealt one card face up and one card face down.
  • The goal is to get as close to 21 as possible without going over.
  • Players can choose to “hit” (take another card) or “stand” (keep their current hand).
  • If a player’s hand goes over 21, they lose their bet.
  • Once all players have completed their turn, the dealer reveals their face-down card.
  • The dealer must hit until they have at least 17 points or until they go bust (go over 21).
  • The player with the highest hand wins.

3. Five Finger Fillet

Five Finger Fillet is a knife game that involves stabbing a knife between your fingers as quickly as possible without cutting yourself. This game is not for the faint of heart.

  • A series of prompts will appear on the screen indicating which finger you should stab next.
  • You need to hit each prompt quickly and accurately before moving on to the next finger.
  • If you miss a prompt or stab your own finger, you lose and have to start over.
