Let's play cards.
Of all jokers, 8 out of 10 are lavender. According to Doc Greeley, the bishops' deck has 1 out of 6 cards that are lavender and 5 out of 6 that are true blue. That means that roughly less than 1 in 100 true blues are jokers, but 1 in 5 of the lavenders are jokers.
On any given draw, the chances of picking a joker are 4 in 100, but the odds that a joker will be lavender rather than true blue are 23 to 1.
Gentlemen, place your bets.
