Galactic game design

Since they have trouble playing any form of poker, except for open-face Chinese, I was commissioned to come up with variations of hold'em which they may find more entertaining. I proposed the following 3 :

1) "1-card" hold'em, in which each alien looks at 1 hole card only, with the option of looking at the second at any later stage during the hand.

2) "Surrogate" hold'em - the aliens cannot read our human minds, so each will appoint a human to look at the cards and play for them.

3) "1-card surrogate" hold'em, also made up of alien-human pairs, where the alien looks at 1 card only, the human at the second card, and then they are free to do whatever they like.

Can you guess which one is the most popular?

I contacted Panda Express from here and requested leave of absence. I should be back in time to serve you.

I'd guess they prefer option No. 1.

Memphis MOJO, why option 1?

In other news, I will be dropped back to earth this week.

Was thinking the aliens would down on earthlings, so would want more of the control.
