Talk:Triad (RDM)

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Um, didn't RDM say that the card game is now called "Triad" because of the switch with Pyramid? "Full Colors" isn't the name, that's just the strongest hand. --The Merovingian (C - E) 15:40, 13 June 2006 (CDT)

I just checked out this podcast excerpt from Pyramid (RDM): "and the name of that game in the original which was Triad is now what we sort of call our poker game. So it's one of those "Oh, it's one of the charming differences between the old and the new.", it's either that or it's just a stupid error that the writer made." So I'm moving this page to "Triad (RDM)"--The Merovingian (C - E) 15:43, 13 June 2006 (CDT)
I recently discovered it was called "Triad" in the novelization.
Hasn't it been referred to as "Full Colors" in other official sources? --Peter Farago 08:49, 28 June 2006 (CDT)
I don't recall any off the top of my head. I'm basing this on the RDM podcast. --The Merovingian (C - E) 09:03, 28 June 2006 (CDT)
Ah, in Podcast:Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part I. That was worded awkwardly, but I see how you've read it. --Peter Farago 09:23, 28 June 2006 (CDT)

Do we know that "Full Colors" is the highest hand? AFAIK, the only rule we can determine is that "Full Colors" beats "Three on a Run." --PrePressChris 18:56, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

isn't it 6 card draw poker?

Dear BSG card game Wiki fans,

I have tried to find out as much as I can about this game because I wanted it as a gift for a friend of mine. As a summary of what I discovered, I reckon the BSG card game (Pyramid/Triad) must be a variant of single deck six card one draw poker with 4 jokers and hands including straights of 3 and 5 cards, called '3 on a run' and '5 on a run'.

I have blogged this information for everyone to see and also made rules with hand rankings that fit with the names used in the show (both TOS and RDM). I would love to know whether my conclusions fit the facts.

No way to say. The thing is that neither the producers nor the actors really know and they just pretend to play in a way that makes it seem logical. It might seem structured, but there are no real rules behind it. If you want to play that way, nothing prevents you from making up any rules you want. --Serenity 05:39, 23 December 2007 (CST)
