Dead Man’s Draw from Stardock Comes to the PC by way of Steam

Stardock has just released a Windows based version of Dead Man’s Draw which they debuted on the iPad a few months ago. You can get the complete version with no in-app purchases all the Traits ready to play for $9.99 on Steam. I bought the iOS version and think it’s a brilliant game. The Traits and Tournaments make the game incredibly interesting with each player and their unique way to play. Also, trying to decide if it’s worth picking up the next card to improve your score or hit a combo can make for some nerve racking games.

When Stardock first released Dead Man’s Draw, I wondered whether it would come out as a PC game. Well, here’s the answer. They’re deliver the game on Steam and it’s only $9.99. It just released a couple of hours ago and I’m off to buy a copy.

How it Works

Players take turns drawing cards in search of the greatest number of points. The simple point values of each card are important, but their special abilities are even more critical. Swords steal cards from your opponent, Mystics reveal the next card, and combining a Chest with a Key leads to a huge bounty of bonus treasure. Clever use of each card’s special power leads to victory, but daring to draw is just as important – though any card could lead to a dramatic bust, it could also propel you to glory.

Traits and tournaments make every game of Dead Man’s Draw unique. Making your Cannon special ability discard an opponent’s entire suit instead of a single card alters the path to victory for both players. Special tournament rules like collecting the cards from your opponent’s busts force you to approach every turn differently. Dozens of tournaments each bring a unique twist, and each of the 18 traits has a profound effect on gameplay.

Upgraded for PC
