3) Hand Values

Hands are listed in order from Best to Worst and from Difficult to Easy using the highest values. In some cases lower values can be substituted for higher values as long as they don’t contradict the range of the dice being used, if any. For example: A 12 in the chart below can actually represent 9-12 where applicable.

 

 

Left Hand: Triple 11 of hearts, looking for triple 7 of clubs

 

 

Total Monopoly: This hand is similar to a royal straight flush in poker using cards in the hand, on the floor and the dice with different numerical values going from 12 – 4 but all of the same suit. The highest values on the dice are 4, 8 & 12. The other lesser variations of this hand are like a regular straight flush using less cards and dice. The more consecutive cards/dice values sharing the same suit the stronger the monopoly. The highest card/die value is also an indicator of a strong monopoly.

Full Consortium: A Full Consortium uses 3 sets of 3 cards & dice incorporating the highest values possible on the 3 dies. Having all of the cards the same suit is stronger than having mixed suits. As in most hands the suit and value of the card on the floor must match the suit and value of the card in the hand. 4, 8 & 12 are the highest values on the dice.

    I totally don’t understand the hand values as displayed here.

    Can you clarify this with a narrative and define the hands?

    Strange things like:
    5♠ 10♠ 09♠ Hand
    11♠ 08♠ 07♠ Floor
    4 12 6 Dice

    in the Monopoly hand seem to have no logic at all to me…
    You hand has 2 cards + 1 card on the floor +(possibly) one die of your choice if it is in your playing area for a set of 3 values? I’m totally confused.

      Total Monopoly is nearly impossible to get. Think of it as an ultimate royal straight flush from 12-4. They all must be the same suit to be strongest but mixed suits can be a lesser version of this hand. I will try to figure a way to make the hand values clearer. Thanks.

    Isn’t the three pairs of 12′s in Zero Fate actually a cornered market?

    • luminous1 says:

      Good catch. Thanks.

      It should be cornered market which is 3 sets of pairs with the same values with or without a die matching the same value.

      Zero Fate is any other combinations with 3 sets of matching cards but no dice incorporated.

      If anyone catches any other oversights please send them my way.

    I couldn’t list every possible hand combination with every possible suit but basically you can substitute any suit in the hand values as long as the pattern is consistent. For example if you substitute all of the spades in the first Full Consortium example with diamonds the same value would be true. The important part is that the suits match up. Where the hand value reflects different suits it just means different suits need to be present. In the second example in the Full consortium it could be 4′s of diamonds, 8′s of spades and 12′s of hearts. The main premise of this hand is that there are 3x4s with the dice, 3x8s with the dice and 3x12s with the dice. This means that the 3 highest values of the dice are being represented. To further elaborate, it could even be possible to have a full consortium with 3x4s of diamonds, 3x8s of diamonds and 3x12s of spades for example. If I can find an easier way to clarify these details I will do so in the near future but I hope this helps.
