Battle Poker (WiiWare)

Game Profile

Battle Poker is a family-friendly card game with up to four players battling against the clock to make the best five-card hand possible.

Battles are played across multiple rounds, and points are scored for each round based on the quality of the hand. Each player uses a Wii Remote controller to point and click on a standard deck of cards on the screen. The first click flips the card over, at which point it can be grabbed by anyone else. You've got to have fast fingers and eyes to grab the cards you need before someone else snatches them.

Whats better than poker than BATTLE POKER?!

For a reasonable price (See: less than 1000 pts) this could be neat

How about gaining real money without worrying about losing you're own? If they made that, then I can finally sprout my wings and fly back to fairy land a rich man, instead of broke...

This was recently summarized by ESRB meaning this game is coming soon.

Wasn't gonna get this at first but this looks like it could do well like Jungle Speed! We'll have to wait and see.

Left Field was a Nintendo second party, just like Rare.
They made some big games like Excitebike 64 and NBA Courtside.

But after leaving Nintendo, with Nitrobike and their many poker games they lost some quality.

This looks interesting though and could be something good, but I would only pay 500WP for it.

Anybody tried this game?
