Re: Reasoning behind higher stake poker on Obsidian
There were other things that ruined the game, but Poker contributed more than her fair share. She is a cruel mistress.

Speaking as someone who finds poker incredibly boring, and refuses to play it in any form: it did fill one gap the game needs—a group activity that a person can get into and out of in a hurry; something to fill the time while waiting for a ship to sail or a hearty to log on.

If poker ever leaves the game, it needs something to replace it, that fills that gap. Something like liar's dice/pirates dice, with rules modified to allow easy entrance and exit from the game.
