If you’ve ever played poker (and most have), it can be hard not to notice how your hand is shaping up during Savage Worlds initiative. This is especially true when you are acting consistently late in the round on the same number, because dammit, 4 might be a crappy initiative draw, but three 4s should count for something!
This is my current house rule; I am sure many other groups probably do something similar. When initiative is dealt, if a player’s action card gives them two of a kind, they receive a benny. They continue to gain bennies at three of a kind and four of a kind. PCs with the Level Headed edge only get to count the card that they actually act on.
Also, any player showing a full house gets the same benefit as drawing a Joker for that round (though the deck is not reshuffled after). Of course, to ever get to that point, five consecutive rounds have to go by without a Joker coming out.
