I was thinking it would be cool to incorperate poker into the duels rather than tiles or dice.
Any ideas?

Correction: Oh, I should be more specific about the poker idea, draw 5 cards, no more cards drawn, no cards in the middle or any other variant, best hand wins, it would still be fast be fast.

Could be interesting. I would be afraid that it'd slow down the game quite a bit. Maybe you could create a variant Character (Riverboat Gambler?) that is able to gamble instead of dueling. Not sure how you could streamline a poker mechanic. Blackjack could also work!

I like the idea of a character called the gambler. But I wouldn't link it to a duel. The duels are great as they are. Perhaps the ability of the gambler is that he can gamble for money or guns?

He can then take five cards (or less/more if it's blackjack) and the outcome of these cards determine how much gold/guns you get (with a minimum of one gold/gun). Flush is x gold/guns, royal flush is y gold/guns etc etc.

Isn't there an expansion personality that affects the gambling action space?

I'm super late to the party, but I like this idea.

Maybe what you could do is have people draw five cards + 1 for each revolver at the beginning of each duel. Players could start with 5 cards as well at the beginning of the game to put into their hands.
