Fizzbin is a game originating in Star Trek. Although rules were not specified, the fandom has created rules associated with the game. Fizzbin is a game of luck. Each player is dealt the cards. This will determine their scoring. The player with the best hand wins the game!


The dealer will shuffle the deck of cards and deal out cards face up to each player. This is done in a clockwise direction, beginning with the dealer. Each player should receive six playing cards, except the player to the right of the dealer, who will receive seven cards.

The game is ready to begin!


This game is fast. After all the cards have been dealt, the player with the best hand wins the game. This is a game of luck, and there is little any players can do to change it. If a player receives three Jacks, they are immediately disqualified.


Half Fizzbin- any two matching cards. The higher ranking of the card, the higher ranking of the hand.

Three Quarter Fizzbin- a Half Fizzbin, a King, and a two

Full Fizzbin- two pairs of cards and two unmatched cards

Shralk- the third Jack that a player holds. This leads to disqualification.

Royal Fizzbin- Two pairs of face cards and two unmatched cards

The hands are ranked in the following order, from low to high: Shralk, Half Fizzbin, Three Quarter Fizzbin, Full Fizzbin, and Royal Fizzbin


The game comes to an end almost as soon as it begins. After the cards have been dealt to each player, they will evaluate their hands. The player with the highest-ranking hand will win the game!
