French term or phrase: Fou du roi
A card game, also known as Le larbin de service. It is played in English-speaking countries, apparently, so there must be a name for it. Any ideas?

Damn fool

c'est un jeu de poker en ligne, ou il y a aussi un "peasant" qui doit donner ses deux cartes les plus fortes au Roi.
les autres terminologies de classification sont Prince, Noble et Merchant....

Notes to answerer
Asker: a) Damn Fool, as the website link you provide indicates, is a made-up game. It does not exist. b) The rules shown there are absolutely nothing like the rules for fou du roi... I can't see one similarity to be honest... so I'm a bit puzzled by your suggestion.
