Yee haw! Ticky Holdem mixes two of your favorite games: Poker and Tic-Tac-Toe! In this funny new card game you plunk cards onto a Tic-Tac-Toe board and build as many 3-card Poker hands as you can. Laugh at the card’s faces, blow up the ones you don’t like, and shoot for the ultimate high score. You've never seen anything like it before!

Say 'howdy' to the sheriff, deputy, showgirl and town folk! Every Ticky Holdem card has it's own personality and will react to your moves with all sorts of comical moods and expressions. We guarantee you will laugh!

This Ticky Holdem add-on introduces the whacky Joker card, who will make the best hand available in any direction, and lets you earn cool achievement awards. Mount up!

Any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 4.2+. An Apple Game Center account is not required but makes the game more fun.

3 Card Poker Squares with Style!

This is a very fun game based on such a simple premise that can get pretty deep. The player tries to get as many 3 card poker hands in the 3x3 grid (these can be on the diagonals, horizontal, or vertical). What you are awarded for your 2-3 card meld is based on its rarity (a pair is worth far less than a royal straight). You are allowed 3 discards (done by placing a bomb on the card you want to get rid of) per round. The game even nicely informs you with each card if it can be used to make an applicable meld on the grid. Once the 9 grid spaces are full and the player is out of bombs or decides not to use the remaining bombs after a 5 second countdown. The more melds created through the game, the higher the multiplier will rise to help boost the points made in hands in the later rounds!

The presentation is very cute with all of the cards exhibiting their own little animations (especially when being bombed) with fun cartoony sound effects.

How can they release a game this cool for only a $1? Well there is a catch, of course, if you want the full experience (achievements, an incredibly handy joker, and no more banner ads) you can purchase the Big Stack Pack IAP.


Ok sure the game has some bombs to blow up the cards you don't want to play but there is more fun than that. If you want a great twist on tic tac toe and love poker you will really like this game alot. The gameplay, music and animation is so fun and addictive I have played this game for hours. It's a free game but I must say I'm so very tempted to buy the Big Stack Pack to get jokers, achievements and no ads but I'm not so sure I really need it. So far this game is perfect but i am really tempted but not so sure $1.99 is worth it for something I really like alot for free. If it has alot of achievements and future update to the game I'm so buying it. Either way this is a steal for free and really worth downloading for sure.

Should be in the top FREE!!!

Great game play! Great animations! If you like card games like Texas Hold'em, you'll enjoy this tic-tac-toe spin on it. This is a hidden gem and really should be in the top 100 (or 25) free games so more people can discover it!
