Slang Term List





izcool
Hey everyone,

I was just thinking about the slang terms used when playing card / gambling games.

These are all that I know of with numbers...

Ace - One or Eleven.
Snake Eyes - Two dice that contain one dot on each, when thrown down.
Box Cars - Two sixes.
Baker's Dozen - Thirteen.

Can anyone else contribute to this list so I can expand on it lol ?

- Mike.

I'm trying to keep focused on the slang terms for card games, not just in general Wink as a kind reminder.

I like Blackjack, pretty fun game. If there's no one else around to play with, I'd go for solitaire. Razz

Nutorious
Fo Sho' = For sure
Foo = Fool
Mint = Very cool/nice
Ight = Alright
milf = mother id like to ****

I would carry on with more but i really cant be bothered there are SOOO many slang words its unbelivable,

Edit: Sorry i didnt realise your slang Words were on the basis of card cames.

Heh, I like how there are quite a few slang terms that people have stated that have no correlation what so ever to your topic that you started.

Anyways, Dead Man's Hand, two pair hand, mainly aces over eights. It got this name supposedly this was the hand that Wild Bill had when he was murdered.

Wikipedia has a good list of slang names for poker hands here.

Have you heard of urban dictionary.com? That page is filled with many slang terms and their definitions. It's a cool page. I also heard that there is a book out with all the slang terms from that page.

Thank you for referring to me to that entry in Wikipedia. I love Wikipedia dearly (I've made my own contributions to it) but never looked up that type of thing.

And then there are a lot of other ones too, like 10-2 is "Doyle Brunson" cause that's the hand he won the WSOP on, etc...
