The critically acclaimed card game is now available on PC! Dead Man’s Draw is a simple and strategic game of luck and skill that boils down strategy gameplay into a single, tense decision: to play it safe or risk everything in pursuit of killer combos and boundless treasure.Key Features
  • Risk vs reward gameplay – Simple and strategic card game puts everything on the line for a single, tense decision
  • Create killer combos – Clever use of each card’s special power is key to victory
  • Dozens of tournaments – Unique rules add hours of new twists to gameplay
  • Eighteen game-changing traits – Customize your gameplay with special powers
  • Beautiful art without hardware requirements – Enjoy top-tier presentation and intricately detailed graphics without needing an expensive machine
How it WorksPlayers take turns drawing cards in search of the greatest number of points. The simple point values of each card are important, but their special abilities are even more critical. Swords steal cards from your opponent, Mystics reveal the next card, and combining a Chest with a Key leads to a huge bounty of bonus treasure. Clever use of each card’s special power leads to victory, but daring to draw is just as important – though any card could lead to a dramatic bust, it could also propel you to glory.

Traits and tournaments make every game of Dead Man’s Draw unique. Making your Cannon special ability discard an opponent’s entire suit instead of a single card alters the path to victory for both players. Special tournament rules like collecting the cards from your opponent’s busts force you to approach every turn differently. Dozens of tournaments each bring a unique twist, and each of the 18 traits has a profound effect on gameplay.Upgraded for PCThe original Dead Man’s Draw on iOS was praised by users on iTunes (4.5-star average) and critics alike, getting positive reviews from QuarterToThree.com, 148apps.com, PocketTactics.com, and more. This PC version is better than ever:

  • No microtransactions or in-app purchases – all content is available, and traits can be used without spending gold
  • New Mermaid suit ability – Mermaids now allow you to replay a card in the river, leading to even bigger combos and epic turns
  • New Sirens trait – Steal any card your opponent replays with a Mermaid
  • Rebuilt for PC – Higher-resolution graphics and a UI specifically built for mouse-driven play

Dead Man's Draw reviews and comments

The Game is good. It's Fun to make the Decision ... One More card or preferably not. Minor tactical Considerations also play a major role in this. With good Consideration and the correct Use of the Cards, nothing stands in The Way of victory. In my Sense, the Game would have been Worth a Recommendation to me. But once again, the Programmers managed to upset me with a nonsensical, easy takeover of an App. There is no Way to restart the Game and no Way to create a second Player (or even more Player). Nonsense! Where do we get to when Games are only designed for one Player. There are enough Families where Men and Women play. Why then only for one Player? And why can't the Game just be set back to Zero? These simple Programming Skills, to expand a PC Game of this Way, I can insinuate this Game to the Developers. So it can only be that the Developers probably tell themselves: Shit on it, get out with the Box and earn some Coal again. Too bad if that's thought. So my Recommendation: If you can get the Game once for 2 Euros: Buy! Or just if All this doesn't bother you or I just shouldn't have found the Possibility. Then I apologize to the Developers of the Game. Unfortunately, however, I fear that I am Right.

Captivating, accomplished and entertaining games. Different challenges in each ' match ' make the game stay interesting. If Not There was the apparently forever inevitable in-app sale of coins I would have given 5 stars. However, It has not been necessary to buy coins yet, it becomes necessary, I'm done with the game!

The Basic Game principle is simple and easy to understand, but it is still fun to understand and becomes more demanding and interesting, especially because of the Skills of the Cards and the later available "Traits." The App runs without Any problems, no Crashes and you definitely don't have to spend real Money. Summa Summarum a well-implemented game, clear Download recommendation!

A relatively simple game, but in its essentiality a true absolute masterpiece. The skills of the cards are fantastic and full of concatenations, also the other objects add a large number of elements of variation and interest. The campaign and the missions are well thought out and the game really very compelling! A jewel and a masterpiece of its kind! That You always have at your fingertips!!! ;-)

Addictive since the first game thanks to an ideal learning curve: You start to play a simple and fun version with a few rules with a very high alea and progressively introduce the combinations of the ten seeds to become a game Strategic! The online version also features many bonus skills that can be acquired with money won during games or bought via in-app, allow a limited advantage, but the free version is already complete and allows you to have fun for a long time! Every game lasts a few minutes, but it pulls the other one! A Really nice discovery

Quickly followed the first Version, which had an infuriating Bug, the Update, and now the Gameplay is undimmed. Either against a Player in the Pass and Play, or in Solo Mode, many ' Tournaments ' that have different AI opponents and Rules. Coins can be bought to unlock Extras, but are completely optional. The Gameplay is strongly reminiscent of Reiner Knizias Circus Flohcati, and the Special Abilities of the card ' Colours ' create a different Sense of play. While at the Beginning one has the Feeling of ' stupid Gambling ', with the new Card Properties that go with it also funny Tactics are added. A loosely easy Gaming, ideal for the mobile Platform.
