Just how many people were really attending this “clown car” meeting? Sounds like they could have had a rousing game of “Durak” while they were there…
Durak (Russian: Дурак; IPA: [dʊˈrak] (“fool”) is a card game that is popular in post-Soviet states. The object of the game is to get rid of all one’s cards. At the end of the game, the last player with cards in their hand is the durak.* [This will be “Jar-Jar Trump”, of course…]
In theory the limit for a game with one deck of 36 cards is six players, but this gives a considerable advantage to the player who attacks first, and a considerable disadvantage to the player who defends first. Variants exist that use more than one deck.
The deck is shuffled, and each player receives six cards.
The bottom card of the remaining deck is laid open on the table. This determines the trump suit.” (Haaaaa.)
