Dead Man's Draw

By Stardock

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Stand on the knife’s edge between risk and reward. The turn of a single card can win bags of treasure or lose it all in this simple and strategic game of chance and skill.

Every card you draw could be your last, but the right mix of wit and courage wins the booty.

“Creative card game that starts out simple and layers on the strategy”
Gamezebo – 9/10

“If you're after a polished and fun card game, this should be your first port of call.”

“‘baller x-treme’ (that is a compliment)”
Tycho of Penny-Arcade

Quarter to Three – 4/5 stars

“Best New Games” and “What We’re Playing”

Dead Man’s Draw combines luck and strategy in a simple card-drawing format. Pulling the wrong card could bust your entire hand, but choosing the right target for a cannon blast or following a treasure map to the best destination can turn the tides in your favor more than any blind luck ever could.

Customer Reviews

Simple card game with fun twists, but one con.

This is a simple card game where you try to collect the most points each round. You draw cards until you either collect them for points, or draw a duplicate suit and lose all of the ones you just drew. So it's a gamble, but it's very fun. Each card also has its own ability that changes the game up a lot, which is what I think makes this game fun. If not for that, it would probably be pretty boring. There are also tokens that beef up the cards, making the abilities of the cards more potent.

One con: it doesn't stay in game if I exit to my home screen or switch applications. It completely exits out, so I lose whatever game I had been playing and have to start over and create a new game. If they fixed this so I could continue the game I had been playing, I would definitely give it five stars. As it is, four stars is what it gets.

Excellent game

This is a press your luck style card game where every card has an effect other than its point value providing just enough skill and combos to keep it interesting, this app was a perfect way to learn the game without reading any rules and the tutorial phases were executed brilliantly by only introducing rules between games to avoid handholding. I will be purchasing a physical copy for my play group, so hyped for this cute between game quickie!


This is a great card game and you should get it, period. Super fun gameplay and excellent card designs make it a winner. I play on an iPhone 6 and I've had no problems whatsoever, and have won more games than I've lost probably because I don't let pirate scum intimidate me ha! Happily, you can actually see the fantastic art on the cards because both the cards and the "board" area are large enough! Thank you, devs - excellent UI & UX!
