Another question: If a J is given will it be clear whether it is a Jack or the Joker?

If we can use a joker, 'FIVE of a kind' may be made.
This special hand cannot absolutely be caused in this round?


You have to prepare 10 combinations. In this case you cannot make the goal

joker has no suit

That doesn't answer the question. He's asking "If you (WPC authors) place a J alone in a cell, how can we tell if it's a Jack or a Joker".

Is it allowed to use alternatives to the suit symbols e.g. C for clubs, D for diamonds etc.? Or rough approximations of the suit symbols provided they are clearly distinguishable e.g an upwards arrow for spades?

So 2222Jo can not occur? Or does it count as "four of a kind"?

Just to be sure: For example 2, 2, 2, 5 and Joker must be seen as four of a kind, since 'a joker is used to make the best possible hand', right?
Or could it also be seen as a full house (Joker representing a 5)?

By the way, I solved the example puzzle logically and I agree that it has a unique solution.

The goal is not to use the joker, but to have 10 different combinations. Joker will mean whatever is best for you to achieve this goal.
