Feature #1: Hand of Straights

Implement the "Hand of Straights" feature for our "Game" project.


For the first feature, we will be working on a variation of Poker. In traditional poker, players form sets of five playing cards, called hands. This feature is concerned with a hand of Straights. Traditionally, a hand of straight is formed by five cards of sequential ranks, such as 9♣, 8♠, 7♠, 6♥, and 5♥. However, in our variation of Poker, a number kk will be determined by rolling a dice 🎲. Then, a hand of straights is only possible if kk sets of cards can be formed using all of the cards in the hand. Each group will consist of kk cards of sequential rank.

If the dice rolls a 1, we roll it again. Therefore, you can assume that kk will always be in the 2 - 6 range.

Let’s try to understand this better with an example:
