This game is just first-class awesomeness. Sure, the author could have written all the tons of scripting and manipulation to make a poker-playing card game and that would have been enough. But instead, this author went way beyond that and included hilarious pictures on the cards and even a story about aliens who somehow know how to play poker in the first place!

I loved the way that it kept going for a long time, forcing you try and beat more and more aliens as the game progressed. I’m not sure how I was able to beat so many so easily, and I wonder if the game might be slightly tipped in my favor (or if the AI behind the aliens is as dumb as the aliens or even non-existent). But it was still absolutely tons of fun. I don’t know why this isn’t rated eight by everyone who plays it – I’m guessing those are alienphobes or something.

This is a really great example of some of the extremes that are possible with this site and the scripting languages and variables that are available to authors. Yes, you can write some great stories here, but if you learn more about how these things works, you, too, can create masterful games like this. Thanks so much for taking all the time it took to write this thing and for sharing it with the site!

It's hard to grasp how much smart thought and tough work went into this. It's not a perfect game, but it's still a pretty satisfying time sink. The aliens being able to raise the bet was a great feature.

There was a moment when I said to myself, "I guess I'm betting the farm." I bet 30 and the aliens raised. I had no choice. When I won the hand it came with a victorious feeling. This game can be kinda tough, especially if you have the discipline not to cheat it.

A feature that would have been cool was a way for your character to cheat, within the confines of the game. Maybe a way to keep a card hidden behind your ear. As only a common man though, I'm not sure how much more scripting that would have made necessary.

This is pretty fun with a great sense of humor. I'll be suggesting this to friends.

This was actually really fun. I didn't have high hopes because I hate card games. It was quite entertaining and had a good humor element. I shudder with dread at the thought at the amount of scripting and that which went into this, so well done doing that. All in all it was a great game to play and had me entertained for quite some time. Really well done, great job.

One of the greatest games of Poker I've ever played, if not the greatest.

I loved it. The aliens being able to raise was a good touch. I also loved the extra things that happen.

The coding must have been a serious nightmare! It's truly impressive that you were able to create poker like this. However, the story itself was pretty random. I'd love to see this incorporated into a really good story. But still, very well done and impressive despite the lack of a more interesting backdrop.

Ok, this game offense, but it was weird, unlike anything I've ever seen. I like the plot, and I love how much effort you put in it, but maybe offer some more info about how to play this...? Overall, it was really fun.
