I dreamt for some reason of a very large family, well basically a group of families of the sons and daughters of one older man, who was very rich. So when he died, there were basically a bunch of sons, daughters, sons in law, daughters in law, semi-grown grandchildren, and various other offshoots to inherit.
Now, for some reason, instead of deciding to just make a normal will and try to divvy up the loot fairly between all these various tons of people, instead he made a will which decreed that the various inheritors would play poker for the items left behind. I don't know what he did with the actual money - maybe he divvied it up evenly, but the various inheritors would buy chips for certain amounts of money, and use them as ante to play poker. And along with the game, for each hand each person would select one item that the old man had owned and put it into the kitty, so to speak, and whoever won the hand of poker would win all of the items that had been chosen for that hand.
Now, in my dream, members of the general public could also buy their way into these games, but they weren't automatically informed of when/where they were taking place, like the family were. And my dream also didn't go into details like what happened to the money that the family members/other players used to buy the chips in the first place. But still, the whole idea just stuck with me. I really wish I knew what my subconscious was smoking, sometimes. o_O
Oh, and while I'm at it, this is swiped from thette a few days ago. I meant to post it before, but didn't get around to it, so I'll include it now:
