Pokergrams

ArtbegottiYou see a handful of cards haphazardly strewn across the table, with vague descriptions around the edges. You're either looking at amateur night at the tarot house, or Pokergrams, a card-based logic puzzle by Ronald Stewart. Your goal is to place all of the extra cards into the grid so that each row and column form poker hands whose best possible ranking is described at the left and bottom of the grid. There are lots of ways to shuffle the cards around, but there's only one solution that matches all of the criteria!

Each grid starts with about ten cards put in place for you as starters. Drag and drop the remaining grey cards into the grid to form the hands. Once a row or column is filled, its description will turn green if it matches the criteria (though the cards may not necessarily be correct) or red (with a notch, as a colorblind aid) if the cards don't fit. Once you've filled the grid so all of the hand rankings are fulfilled, you win! Pokergrams is a simple app with a simple premise, but that doesn't mean the puzzles are simple at all. One important rule to keep in mind is that the descriptions always show the best possible ranking for a hand; if you're not careful, you might accidentally drop a pair into an "ace-high" row and throw yourself off. Can you deal with the challenge and solve these tricky puzzles?

I feel like there should be more than thirteen puzzles available for free.

Great game, can't stop playing! :)

I think it's a pretty good deal for a free, original puzzle game with no ads. The puzzles are clever (very suduko-like) and scale up nicely in difficulty, to the point that the last few of each set are TOUGH. I enjoyed it enough to purchase all of the expansion sets...for anyone who was wondering, there are currently four at $.99 each, for a total of 65 puzzles.

Hi,

I'm Ronald Stewart, developer of this Pokergrams app.

Thanks a lot for the kind review and all the comments here. I'm delighted! :)

@SonicLover - I tried to set a fair deal for people to try the app with no ads. I hope that a set of 13 challenging puzzles are enough for you to decide that you like them. Sorry :)

If you do want to buy more sets, I have made sure that all the sets are just as high quality as the first, and that each puzzle will present a new challenge.

@abfdrumz - I've submitted several new puzzle sets to the App Store for review. I believe they will become available in the next week. I'm sorry if you're waiting for more puzzles but your support really means a lot to me! Thanks again!

No worries, Ronald! 65 puzzles is plenty for now...I'm still working on the hardest ones, and something tells me it's not exactly trivial to design them well.

Cool concept, cool game.

New sets of puzzles have been cleared for sale and should be available now :)

There is a new update available with some small improvements.

I have changed the name of this app.
It's now called
'Pokergreen Puzzles: "The Next Sudoku"'

with apologies for any confusion :)
