    Poker Pals is an unusual, simple, and fun multiplayer title that hides a surprising amount of depth.

    Poker Pals delivers a fun interpretation of poker, with desirable asynchronous play and random match-ups for people without many online friends. It has a high replay value and should come with a warning about time-consumtion, due to the constant, but pleasurable interruptions when it's your turn.

    An awesome mash-up of two classics, and we can't recommend it enough to fans of board games.

    Combining poker and scrabble ends up with a fun competitive game that should appeal to board and card game fans alike.

    Poker Pals is a fresh entry in the asynchronous multiplayer genre that is immediately accessible to all. Easy rules, and easy to play it is a pleasurable way to play during shorter breaks.

    All in all Poker Pals is a great, light iOS app that is a worthy purchase if you have plenty of friends who enjoy similar gameplay types. Just don't expect a real brain teaser.

    It's fun for a bit of casual play with chums and randoms, but nothing special, plus you'll tire of the single-player version (against THREE whole AI players!) in record time.
