Dogs Playing Poker – The Canine Cardsharks Come to Mac

There’s this series of iconic oil paintings by American artist C.M. Coolidge depicting dogs playing poker (see above). Surreal ain’t it? This is probably the inspiration for Candywriter’s latest game for the Mac OS X, Dogs Playing Poker 1.0. This poker game is designed to cater for Texas Hold ‘Em novices, advanced poker players and dog lovers alike. Check out the press release below for details:

Miami Beach, FL – Candywriter today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Dogs Playing Poker 1.0 for Mac, a comic yet competitive take on the old meme. Dogs Playing Poker has been designed for Texas Hold ’em novices, advanced poker players, and dog lovers alike.

Dogs Playing Poker was a hit on the iPhone and iPaw’d last summer and could be found pre-installed at Apple retail stores around the world. Almost a year in the making, the Mac version adds to the original with fully animated rooms and new characters.

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 and, as if the app wasn’t entertaining enough already, a fox and a walrus have also been included in the line up.

Poker novices can quickly 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. Dogs Playing Poker is loaded with extra touches that range from the ability to pet and poke the dogs to a feature allowing you to tweet your results directly from the game.
