HORSE is also shooting baskets as in basketball. Each basket you make you get a 'letter' i.e., make a basket and your score is an H. Make another basket and your score adds an O to the H. (we won't say that name) The first person to spell HORSE wins.

HORSE is actually an acronym describing a combination of five poker games:
Omaha Hi/Lo
Razz (Seven card stud low)
Stud (Seven card stud high)
Eight-or-better (Seven card stud high-low)
