What is the Arc Client?
Install Arc

Will we see a Tongo game?

Will there be a Tongo game inside STO? Secondly what are the odds of getting a Texas Holdem program for the players ship?

    Maybe, since they were playing it in Quark's Lucky Seven. But, I wouldn't expect it, as it would likely be to much effort for Cryptic to code.

    The thing is that IIRC there's no official rules for it, at least not complete ones.

    The way I figure it, especially from the look of it in the episode, is that it's a game version of a stock market. Granted a game version with Latinum on the line.

    Which we see the basics of, Buy, Sell, Hold, and Withdraw. Though for a game, Withdraw would have to be changed to Pass. Leaving Withdraw to be leaving the game.

    The game would be, say 5 random commodities. Like R&D mat, Food, Drink, Weapons, the commodities on the vendors, etc. So each time you leave and enter a game, you might get one you had been in before, but chances are, you're going to get a new game.

    The main thing here is that, you're not playing the computer. You're playing against other players. So this would have to be a network, say put a Tongo table in the same areas as the dabo tables. Now, if you say each game is a max of 5 people, that you're playing against and trying to outwit in the buying, selling, holding and passing.

    To add some more fun to this, each player can target other players for the Ferengi fun, and pay to have the hit with Audits, Inquisitors and such. Which would be doff assignments in the game, that would award diplomacy/marauding and trade exp. For example, you get hit with an Audit, you get a short little doff assignment, say 5 minutes, of "Bribe Ferengi Auditor". Succeeding at these means your clear. However, failing means you lose a turn or lose commodities you bought, or funds you have on the table.

    With that, all that's left is figuring out the bribing prices, as well as the amount of GPL each player starts with.

    It also seems to have elements of a card game like Poker as well, based on the cards the player has, and seems to also have an element of bluffing as well.
