The chips were reset for the last time today and it looks like Last Call Poker is making its last call in keeping with its namesake. I will be sad to see it go as it was a brilliant game with a great community.
It was a fun place to hang out and chat whilst playing an exceptional multiplayer Texas Hold'em implementation. The Top Players leader board offered multiple ways to participate and compete for the top spots in several categories. Weekly tournaments rewarded those lucky enough to win the most chips before they were reset. Weekly live events in cemetaries around the country provided players a fun way to meet-up in person and play Tombstone Hold'em, a variant of Texas Hold'em in which actual tombstones are sought-out for pocket cards. And a rich and mysterious storyline provided ARG fans with fodder for their skills.
The resets changed the scenery at the site and the poker tables, as well as the appearance of each and every avatar. Those changes alone provided an early signal that this good thing would not last. And now, it's Last Call at the poker tables everyone.
Kudos to 42 Entertainment and, in particular, Jane McGonigal for the phenomenal experiences being created in the area of immersive and pervasive play.
