It was a Sunday afternoon and members of the JCI London council and friends sat down to a game of poker with a difference. We were playing with pennies! All in aid of the ongoing JCI UK Penny War for Nothing But Nets.
Playing with pennies made no difference to the competitive spirit judging by the staring contests and the amount of yelling and laughing going on. Emotions ran high and rematches have been demanded by many players.
A lot of fun was had by all and an impressive amount of pennies were were donated to our penny jar and the Nothing But Nets campaign. It now looks like we have started a trend and Penny Poker is spreading around JCI chambers across the UK.
Why not set up your own Penny Poker game? The rules are:
Each participant brings £5 worth of 1p coins.
Tables of up to 5 players recommended
Ante starts at 1p each game (can be upped if you’re feeling lucky/reckless!)
At least 50% of winnings to go to Nothing But Nets (please contact Soraya Bowen to donate)
For the rules of poker…best to ask someone who knows!
