Description

A poker puzzle to play by yourself

Selfie Poker is a unique combination of poker and modern puzzle games. Designed specifically for one-handed offline play, it's a perfect fit for whenever you have a free minute.

Every round you need to build 3 poker hands so that weaker poker hands are placed on top of stronger ones. With 6 cards to choose from, you have plenty of interesting options every turn. Unused cards persist between rounds so every choice matters!

Get lucky and score tons of points for stronger combinations on higher levels, or fight for survival with bare pairs. It wouldn't be a poker game without luck involved!

Store memories of your best hands as photos, and share them with your friends.

The game was heavily inspired by Chinese Poker with its many variants (especially Open Face Chinese and Pineapple) and mobile puzzle games, like Threes, 2048 and Merged

STUPIDITY MANAGEMENT

This would be a 5-star game except for the manner of dealing out losing hands i have nothing to do with. The game starts and i’ve lost because i only have one card left to draw and it doesn’t pair with anything. Which means some programmer played may hand poorly and then handed it over to me. Intolerable, and worse, unplayable.

I see no good reason for an app to arbitrarily destroy a lot of well thought out play. Ultimately it’s the company’s loss. Delete.

Thank’s for your reply. I have, believe it or not, retracted reviews in the past, so you will understand that I cannot agree with your response, so much so that I have deleted your app. You obviously cannot see the foolishness of playing someone’s entire hand and then handing them a silver-plated loss. The first series I played upon downloading your app gained a score of over 500. Since then I have only cracked 200 a couple of times, and what you refer to as “poor play” is only the most brilliant play as to have survived. Your system needs a serious rethink. Out of all of my losses I have only earned (by my terms) 4 or 5 losses compared to the dozens that are just handed to me. I know what poker is all about. I’ve been at it for a lifetime. Pity you can’t bluff in your app.

Developer Response

Hi. Thanks for the input.
Just to clarify things, dealing out cards between rounds is completely random. We don’t control randomness in any way.
I agree that it could be frustrating to be “handed” loss at the begining of the round, but this situation happens only if player did poorly in the previous round. The whole idea of the game is that you start the next round with cards left from the previous. I personally feel, that situations when we are doing poorly and have to rely on luck to survive are exciting and crucial for the game. Also, there ways to strategically limit impact of luck at this step.
At the same time, I understand your frustration and agree that it has it’s merits. Thanks for playing.

Love it

Simple but very replayable. One question, let’s say the bottom and middle rows have two (different) pairs each. How is their relative strength determined? 1: Addition of both pairs, or 2: the presence of two respective stronger pairs overall? (This is hard to explain...) Bottom row = AA 88, middle = TT 99 would win by method 1 and lose by method 2.

Developer Response

Hi. Tiebreaker in two pair vs two pair situation is a strength of the strongest pair. So AA88 beats TT99 because AA beats TT. This is a standard for all forms of poker. It might get a little confusing so we've included a tiebreaker example for most combinations in a Help tab. Most of them are obvious, like A-high flush beats K-high flush, but two pairs and full houses are really hard to remember (for full houses tiebreaker is a strength of a trips, so AAA22 beats KKKQQ).
And don't forget we still check hand strength for High Cards so having A-high at the Top and K-high at the middle row will lead to losing the game.
Good luck!

Game mode suggestion

It would be cool to have a mode where the not used cards are put back in a fixed order instead of at random.
