How do you Play Tripoley –To Play

To play, each player starts by placing nine chips on each labeled section of the stakes-board. The deck is dealt out to each player a card at a time, along with a spare hand. At the end of the deal, some players will have more cards than other players, usually one card more. The dealer views her hand then chooses whether to exchange her current hand for the remaining spare hand. However, she can not look at the spare hand prior to making the swap. Once the exchange has been made, the dealer positions her hand face down, then the dealer’s older hand becomes the spare hand. However, the hands cannot be combined. The dealer can offer the spare hand that has not been seen for sale to the highest bidder if he chooses to do so. Bids are made in chips while the buyer must give that amount to the dealer in chips. The winner takes the spare hand and puts his old hand (faced down) in the center. The dealer can put his old hand up for auction on the auction block. If any of the players has the Ace, King, Queen, Jack or the 10 of Hearts, chips can be taken from the matching spot on the stakes board. Others may ask how do you play Tripoley.
