Mistigris ( poker )

1) High poker (usually draw) with the joker wild.
2) The joker, when it can represent any card. The name comes from French, and is close to 100 years old. It originally meant the jack of spades, especially when accompanied by two cards of the same color in the old games of bouillotte and brelan, both similar to modern poker, and later was used for the blank card that came with a deck of cards, and then for the game played with that card. That blank card later evolved into the joker. Also spelled mistigri.
