There are genre mashups, and then there are genre mashups. (Toucharcade)
We’re officially announcing our new game!
Poker Chess Solitaire (Presskit) is the ultimate board/card game mashup! Try to achieve objectives and clear boards/levels (hence the “solitaire” bit) by making poker hands according to a special set of rules (including chess piece movements, taking cards from the opposite color, checks and so on). Sounds complex? Believe us, It’s lots and lots of fun.
In Poker Chess Solitaire player can only move J’s, Q’s and K’s. J’s move like Knights from chess (L-shaped movement), Q like Queens and K like Kings. Also, J’s, Q’s and K’s can take cards from the opposite color (red suits vs black suits). Players can use this set of rules to rearrange cards in the board so as to make poker hands (every one of the four rows is a 5-card hand) and reach certain objectives. And there’s more to it! But don’t worry. We will teach you every rule while being really, really fun.
