  4. Can we buy GTG playing cards?
    I like the design.

  5. Gilbert Arenas almost caught a body over this game lol

  6. Million Dollar Potential in Ruvol

    I have invented a Board Game [still unpublished and not yet out in the market] that is guaranteed to be far more challenging and exciting than CHESS. I called it “RUVOL.”

    Over time, Ruvol will surpass chess as the “Number One Board Game in the World.”

    Why am I so sure about this? Because I am an avid chess player myself.

    The weakness of chess is it always starts in fixed positions that the opening moves become “memorizable.” In fact, not a few have so mastered the moves that they can play against their opponents “blindfolded.” It is for this very reason that the great Bobby Fischer introduced his so-called “Fischer Random Chess,” where the starting position of the pieces is “randomized” to make the memorization of openings impracticable. Fortunately, it is also for this reason that I invented Ruvol where “every game” has been calculated to be a challenging one to play.


    Ruvol is played somewhat like chess. It is played by two players. It uses a board that is rectangular in shape but contains more number of squares than chess. It has equal number of pieces on each side of the board, where each type of piece moves in distinct ways. However, if the way to win chess is to checkmate the opponent’s king, the way to win Ruvol is to be able to cross a designated line.

    But there’s one big advantage Ruvol has over chess: The Ruvol pieces are randomly placed at the start of “every game” which makes it impossible for any clever player to memorize the moves.


    The people who play chess will be the same people who will play Ruvol. In my Google search, I learned there are around 800 million chess players in the world. These 800 million players comprise the “Total Potential Buyers” of Ruvol across the globe. At an average profit of just US$3 per set, the “Global Income Potential” of Ruvol then is US$2.4 billion. Assuming only 1% of it will buy each year, the annual global potential sale of Ruvol is US$24M.


    For the reason that I don’t have the resources to publish Ruvol on a global scale, you might be interested to have the exclusive right to manufacture and market Ruvol globally under a “licensing agreement.” Or better yet, just “BUY MY COPYRIGHT” and Ruvol is entirely yours. My email address:

    Thanks and God bless!


    The Ruvol Inventor

  7. Jheeze, it can get heated up real quick. No wonder why Gil and Jav got into it for bourrè lol.

  8. And I thought it didn't get any more boring than Uno. No thanks.

  9. who else is here after that Dbook GQ video ??

  10. I play bourre all the time, but how we play it is that you can’t lead out with the suite unless it has already been broken. So leading out with that Ace wouldn’t be aloud. It’s kinda cool, Bc then you can tell who has good cards and not. Also try an extra hand. When the dealer deals, they’ll deal an extra hand before there own. So if anyone has terrible cards, then can buy the extra hand. Whichever how much the ante was, but the trick is if they buy the extra hand. They automatically have to stay in. Even if the cards are terrible. They can still get new cards just like a regular hand, but they have to stay in. So sometimes players need 5 cards lmao. Also when the dealer is dealing, then can flip over any card in there 5 that they want to. I always do the fourth, some people do the first. Just which ever they’re feeling. It’s kinda funny when someone flips a shitty card, but have great cards but not the same suite. These are just differences in what my friends and I play with. You guys should try it and see if you like it or not

  11. Must be real Cajuns playing the game cuz player two played the King of Hearts and should have won the trick not player 4. The Cajuns have a lot of rules that come up out of the blue while playing like One Eyed Jack reverses the play, etc.

  12. Isn't there supposed to be an additional hand, called the Widow?

  13. I'm just here because I heard Gilbert Arenas ruined his life playing this game , and it was the most popular among NBA players.

  14. I wish this guy would put more breaks in between sentences. Obviously you can pause & rewind the video, but it’s like a constant monotone wave hitting you and makes it difficult to absorb what he’s saying.

  15. Wow, I miss this game. Pots get crazy big once they build up and almost every round goes 3-handed to avoid a winner then people end up booraying because they played marginal hands.

  16. Is this not just spades with extra steps I don’t see why not just play spades

  17. Not sure if I understand the last rule stated

  18. POV: here from the JJ Redick and Perkins podcast

  19. Anyone here after jjreddick said he missed this game about the nba

  20. When you find out the game your mom taught you when you were 5 is called booray

  21. We used to ante quarters in high school, these games could get out of hand quickly

  22. You did an amazing job simple and you didn’t over talk so I was able to learn easily I love how you were able to monitor you speech pace also not too fast not too slow awesomeness just brilliant you are a great teacher and spokesperson very fluent

  23. I'm here after watching Rasheed Wallace story! Now I want to play

  24. Rasheed Wallace got me looking this up lol 😂

  25. My initial reaction was that I thought it would be a more interesting card game. Then I realized why would I think a bunch of athletes would be playing an interesting card game?

  26. Why was the 3 flipped over and put back into the dealers hands?

  27. So basically its solo spades with a changing trump suit.

  28. You’re here cause of JR Smith interview on JJ PODCAST? Welcome

  29. It seems everyone in the NBA has played this game lol

  30. I'm only here because of JJ & JR Smith & I need to start a Bouree night

  31. Say diamonds is trump, the king of spades is played followed by a 7 of diamonds. if I have a 5 of diamonds and a jack of clubs left in my hand do I have to play trump (5 of diamonds) knowing that it will lose or can I keep it to try and win the next hand by playing the jack of clubs?

  32. So its Spades with extra steps. Got it

  33. been watching soo much NBA player podcast that I had to see what the hype about bourre is lool
