I guess I should specify I never really understood poker so would that keep me from enjoying this game?

Yes absolutely. How do I know? Because I myself am not a fan of Poker and yet I enjoyed this.

When I sat down with HGF at Essen to play the game, I had a big chip on my shoulder. I don't like and never play Poker, and they told me this was like Poker. So I was a hostile audience. I fully planned to say, after the session, "Nice game, but not for Petersen Games. Good luck with it elsewhere."

But the game pulled me in - it was really fun. The math aspect of Poker doesn't figure as heavily, but there is still bluffing and strategy - but you should be familiar with those features from other card games.
