You can read more about the game before you buy it, via the overview below:
Lords of New York is poker the way it oughta be – with a lot fewer of those boring rules! Cheat your way to the top in style in this stylish 1920s-era Poker RPG, where you’ll develop skills over the course of every game to give you an edge on your opponents. Don’t like the cards you’ve got? Switch ’em around. Don’t like the way your opponent is betting? Make ’em regret it. Pick your character, and see how fun poker can be.
Every character’s skills and abilities match their distinct personalities, and they’re all lovingly animated and fully voice acted. They’ll let you know exactly how they feel about the way the game is going, encouraging players to bond with them over the course of a game. Poker isn’t about cards – it’s about the people – and Lunchtime Studios has created a cast of characters you won’t forget.
