I have had this discussion in other card games. I am getting tired of it particularly. The issue is determining how to "randomly" access or trash i.e. select a card from a player's grip.
I clearly tried to explain to my opponent that the best way to "randomly" select a card for either of these functions was to just roll a die.
He did not like this method and was crying about wanting to "pick" the card. I told him, without getting into the subconscious mind argument, that him picking the card was not random.
You have to understand I am from Las Vegas, and we have, card counters, magicians, poker players (tell reading), 3-card monty street peddlers, etc.
First off I am not saying that having any of the above skills is a bad thing, or against the rules to possess such a prowess of the mind. It's just that "randomly" picking a card does not allow you to use them in these circumstances.
I don't see what the problem is, by me insisting, that we use dice. I had a 4-sided, 6-sided, and 10-sided, right there.
So in a tournament, I want to use dice, if he is upset because he feels like he is "lucky boy" by picking the card even tho that should not be used as an influence on this situation (if it exists hah) I believe it does, except for the luck of the die roll. Because this is supposed to be random.
Please let me know how you guys feel. Because I mean honestly a friend player of mine came up with a good resolution.
When I fan the cards out or put them on the table, what he would do is pick which direction is the start i.e. the 1 spot card. So either:
   
   
In turn he would be basically be able to somewhat pick and I would get to roll the die.
This works for me as a "COMPROMISE." Gladly.
But if the player just grabs a card from my hand and I am like "a no!" roll a die...
What is the precedence?
I mean he shouldn't just be able to grab a card from my hand, right? gees
Let me know boys!
