The Poker Game

This isn't like any normal poker game, this one has a board with it. Naruto and Lee make up a game that involves poker and no money attached to it. Sasuke, Ino, Neji, Kiba and Sakura are invited to play the game as Shikamaru it to host it while everyone else plays. But there's a catch, and Ino must team up with Neji to beat Naruto and Lee at their own game to prove how stupid it really is.

Chapter One: The Goal

Ino and Sakura graled at each other as they walked in to see what it was that Naruto and Lee were so excited about.

"Okay, were all here/" Shikamaru said. "What is this big thing you've been working on?" He asked.

"Yeah!" Choji said while eating some chips.

Ino rolled her eyes hoping these two weren't going to be here.

"Ta-da!" Naruto and Lee shouted as they showed off a huge board and a few cards laid out.

"What is this?" Kiba asked.

"This is The Poker Game!" Naruto said.

"Let us explain, we've invited you here to play our new and improved child friendly poker game. No betting is required. But you get a huge reward if you beat the big bosses in the game." Lee explained.

"And what is this so called reward?" Neji asked.

"Ah! Simple." Naruto said. He went to the back room and pulled out something most interesting.

"Over the last few weeks, Lee and Guy have gone and gotten a few of the simple jobs of hunting some rogues, and I've gone and done some simple jobs myself in the village for helping others. So, this should lead up to a total of..." naruto thought about it a moment.

"10,000 yen." Lee said.

Now THAT, was a reward!

"Count me in." Sakura said.

"Not so fast pinky." Kiba snapped.

"I'm sorry. But I'm going to be winning that money!" Ino shouted.

"Why bother." Sasuke scoffed and headed to the door.

"Chicken to play?" Naruto said grinning.

Sasuke turned with an evil "I and going to kill you" look on his face.

"Well, Neji?" Lee said having the same grin and Naruto.

This was something obviously to get Sasuke and Neji to play to beat them at something.

But with other players, it made it more fun in doing so.

"Alright. I'll play this stupid game." Neji said sitting down in one of the chairs.

Naruto and Lee sat in two more as Sasuke, Sakura, Kiba and Ino all sat.

"Shikamaru will be the host who explains a few things. Like someone reading a book out loud." Lee said giving him a piece of paper.

"Welcome to the-The Poker Game.

Here is how this will work, seven players are to make it through the board and win the huge jackpot. There is a chance for teams of two but you may also work alone if you wish.

You have a few different options here, you can trade cards to get better ones with the pile in the center, trade with any other player, If you have something else they need or want, fight the team of threes or make a quick cash/card run.

The team of threes- it's a obvious explanation. There are teams on the board of which you can fight to make it pass the board and get a special card to help you slow down your enemies. Careful, some of them might help your enemy depending on the card.

The quick cash/card run- it's a race against all players to get five different cards that you can either use in your hand or give to others to help them or mess them up. Once you've expected the card from the other player, you can't put it back till it's your turn.

And that's the rules. You may also be eliminated from the game if you have a weak hand when revealing hands. The host will explain and you move along further in the game."

Shikamaru glared at both Lee and Naruto for making him the host.

"It's only because your a chunin." Naruto said.

Ino nodded understanding why place Shikamaru with the biggest responsibility. And it also means, there's no chance of Naruto or Lee cheating.

"Let's get this game started." Sakura said cracking her knuckles.

And they began...
