    Sword & Poker gives me the same feeling that I get when I play PuzzleQuest. It has got that same "just one more battle, just one more" addictive flair.

    Sword & Poker is just awesome. The poker battles with monsters are spectacularly entertaining, especially as you dig deeper into the dungeon and pick up new weapons and items that serious affect the outcome of a hand.

    The gameplay is addicting and even with a clear end to the game, it'll take you some hours to finish. Everything is well-balanced, and the evolution of the game as you progress just makes it better.

    As ridiculous an idea as it sounds, Sword & Poker is a really fun game, and one that I find easy to recommend as a purchase.
