Orvos grinned. “I just go with it. After all, why reveal my strategy so early on?” he said with a chuckle as he gestured to the floor full of tables. “After you, my dear!”

Janna gazed at him for several moments, but then simply turned and moved away without saying anything. She snagged a table for four that was next to the windows, so they could enjoy the view as they played. Pulling out a chair, she sat down in a side chair so she didn’t have her back to the view.
Izzy lingered for a moment, telling the bartender to take his time. Then when she could no longer linger and make it seem believable, she moved to the replicator and picked two packs of cards. They were clear cards with an intricate design on the back that hid what the cards were from the other players. One set was dark evening sky blue and one was a deep emerald green. This way they could take time shuffling as they liked and if anyone joined them, they would not be overwhelmed with shuffling. She thought about replicating some poker chips and ended up replicating some. They could choose to add chips and stakes… however fake they may be. Besides, bragging rights were quite fun.
She returned to the table and delivered her goods: the drink for Janna, her own drink, the tray of chips and the two packs of cards. “I didn’t know if you wanted to play for chips so I replicated them just in case. What do you say?”
“Well, I have to admit that while I know how to play poker, I know only the most rudimentary rules. I’m a quick learner though, so chips are fine with me.” Kingston grinned. “After all, a game without stakes isn’t nearly as fun.” She took a sip of her drink, peering at them over the lip of her glass.
