I posted a question about pineapple OFC and was told that it was not within the scope of the poker stackexchange. I was wondering if we could add Open Face Chinese (OFC) and its pineapple variant POFC to be valid.
I've looked into it more deeply & id suggest that OFC and its variants are On-Topic.
My reasoning being in relation to another game that was suggested, "Pandante", which id suggest is off-topic.
To be a poker variant there are a couple of constraints more important than others that need fulfilling. Those are use of a standardized deck, and use of a common hierarchy of hand rankings. OFC and variants of it have those characteristics.
An argument used with Pandante was that similarities in skill sets (eg. Counting outs, psychology, etc.) were important. I wouldn't call baseball and tennis variants of the same game because they both requires ball striking skills.
I propose reopening the question.
