We discuss how to implement a secure card game without the need for a trusted dealer, a problem often denoted “Mental Poker” in the literature. Our solution requires a broadcast channel between all players and the number of bits needed to represent each card is independent of the number of players. Traditional solutions to “Mental Poker” require a linear relation between the number of players and the number of bits required to represent each card.
