Product Description

Poker of the Dead is a Hold'em Poker solitaire game.

Zombies are trying to break down your door! Play "heads up" poker against them to stay alive. Fortunately, zombies aren't normal poker opponents. They have no brains, never fold, and will always call your bet. Play the odds to fend them off and earn new high scores. To win, survive all seven days (10 hands per day). At the start of a hand, you and the zombie are dealt 2 cards each. Next follows 3 betting rounds, over which 5 shared cards are dealt. At each stage, you can call, raise, fold, or go all-in (if available). The best 5-card hand wins the pot. Win 3 hands to activate the "all-in" shotgun, and use it to double your money and blast a zombie. Each new day increases the stakes with higher ante and bet amounts. If you run out of money, the game is over. Poker of the Dead features a full tutorial, detailed game statistics and 12 special challenges to complete.

Can you survive the horde of poker playing zombies? Try Poker of the Dead today!

I'm giving Poker of the Dead 5 stars for several reasons. I was a bit weary at first about purchasing games on my non touch kindle but with this game, this has proven to be a complete non issue. The game offers a very simple and easy to use game interface that works very well with the buttons on the face of the Kindle.

As for the game itself, it's nothing too extravagant which in my opinion is part of the overall appeal. Very simple straight forward poker game with a bit of a twist which separates it from any other poker game I've had the opportunity to play before. Although the actual game length is a bit short from start to finish, there are a ton of challenges, some more difficult than others, which will keep you wanting to play when you have some time to spare.

All in all I am definitely happy that I stumbled onto this game in the marketplace. I find myself playing on lunch breaks at the office, in between reading e-books, and whenever I have some time to kill. Definite good buy for anyone looking for a fun little distraction from whatever it is your doing.

I'm giving Poker of the Dead a full 5 stars, because there's nothing more I'd ask from the game. It's not a full blown Texas Hold'em game, doesn't pretend to be one, but instead, gives the game its own special gameplay that works really well on the non-touch Kindles. The game can easily and comfortably be played casually using the 5-way controller. It's fun for short time periods, or extended play (try to beat your own score). Killing zombies by going all-in is fun and different.

This isn't a very deep game, but it doesn't need to be. It's great to take a break from reading, play a few fun rounds, and get back to reading. This game is relaxing; it's doesn't requires a lot of brains, but that really depends on how you bet. ;)

Okay. So my mom asks "what are you doing on your kindle?" I reply with, "I just shotgunned a zombie." Guess what I was playing. Poker of the dead. Poker of the dead is a fun gambling game for kindle. You gamble your money with zombies, but thats not the only thing thats at stake. If you win, you shoot the zombie. If you lose, well, no more brains for you. You face different zombies, increasing in difficulty as you go along. Poker of the dead has a classic betting platform, but also high scores and achievements. 5 out of 5 any day.

I'm so glad I bought this game. This has become my favorite Kindle game now. I have 52 so far. I'm new at playing poker so this game is perfect for me. Not too easy and not too complex. And so much fun!!! Actually I resisted buying it for a while because I don't like zombies. But I got bored playing the other Kindle games and reading all the free books on my Kindle. So I decided to give this game a try. I'm so glad I bought this game! I'm becoming a better poker player.

Alright, I know this is suppossed to be a fun take on poker & zombies.

My real problem with the game is the game engine used to make the poker hands. So I've played 30 games, or 1054 hands.

3 Four of a kind
60 Full Houses
95 flushes
130 straights.

Play some real poker and see how often these hands come up. The truth is much, much, less. Been playing real poker for about 3 years now, have only seen 4 of a kind once, in over 5,000 hands.

Even though it is a pure luck game, since the Zombies never fold, you should expect to win 50% of all hands played. The programmers definitley gave the Zombies an edge. If there is a 4,5,6, 8 on the board, the Zombies will have the inside straight at least 50% of time. In real poker, is about 7% of the time. In two handed poker, losing 8 Fulls of Aces to Aces full of eights as about a one in 100,000 chance of happening. It has happened twice in this game.

Game would be a lot more fun if the poker hands were at least slightly more realistic and you could make a final decision at the River card like in real poker.
