Pineapple OFC is a variation of open-face Chinese poker with Fantasyland.
Like in regular OFC, the players get dealt 5 cards in a certain order, and start by placing them face-up. They continue getting dealt cards until they make a 13-card hand, comprising of a “top,” “middle,” and “bottom” row of three, five, and five cards, respectively. You can find rules in Support menu.
The first five cards dealt are placed like in regular OFC, but the difference about Pineapple OFC is then players get dealt three cards instead of one. Each player picks and places two of the three cards in any of their open rows and then discards the third one face down. The process is repeated until players have finished their 13-card hands. It is important to remember the discarded cards because they can give you an advantage over your opponents.
