Tsunami Pai Gow Poker has found its title from the old-time story... The gigantic tsunami has carried a small Japanese vessel far away from the shore into the sea. The crew had no provisions on board, and the people had to travel back home for many days with no foodstuffs. After a week of navigation, when almost all the rats had been eaten, the starving seamen became desperate about their chance to survive. The captain said then that even if there was no nutrition for body, there was still food for thought left on board. He ordered the crew to start up a pai gow poker tourney, and the prize for the winner had to be the rat barbecue. The self-preservative instinct made the seamen, mad with hunger, play fiercely. The three day lasted the absurd do-or-die tournament, and when the winner was proclaimed, the men saw the land which meant their salvation. Concentrate! Play the game as if the victory gave you the last chance to survive.
