Candywriter has introduced Dogs Playing Poker 1.0 (http://www.candywriter.com/dogsplayingpokermac.html) for Mac OS X, a comic take on the old meme. It costs US$4.99, requires Mac OS X 10.6.6 or higher and is available in the Mac App Store in the Games Category.
Designed for Texas Hold ’em novices, advanced poker players, and dog lovers alike, users select their dog breed of choice and then enter a five-round tournament that spans a junkyard, dog pound, train car, den, and Chinese restaurant kitchen. On the way, users face off against 19 unique hounds; a fox and a walrus are also included in the line-up.
Poker novices can get up-to-speed on the ins and outs of Texas Hold ’em by completing the built-in tutorial. Experienced players can enjoy the diverse poker playing traits of the various characters and the hundreds of poker “tells” bundled into the game.
