Revisit the Wild West with Frontier Faro: First multiplayer faro game for mobile

The frontier towns of the Wild West were filled with opportunities, gunslingers, ladies of the night and of course, gambling houses. And in those gambling houses was played a game called Faro, long lost to card players and gamblers of today. Faro was the most popular game until the first World War, but later faded away because it was perhaps the only game which gave no advantage to the house over the players, if played fairly.

We at Migoi Studios, a small development team from India, present to you the first ever Faro game being developed for the mobile devices. We'll be posting regular updates on this thread and encourage all card game or Western aficionados to give us their feedback on the project. We'll be starting the beta tests soon.

To kick off proceedings, presenting the Jack, Queen and King.

We'll be launching a micro site for the game soon. Till then have a look at the first draft of the saloon that's going to adorn the site.

The cards look nice but have you tought of making four differents sets of Js,Qs & Ks?
Like a sets with the cowboys, one with bandits, another with indians and the last with mexicans (or federals or whatever fits).
I think variety helps a lot the lasting appeal of a game

@Malaussene

That's a really nice suggestion. We are looking into how we can fit this into the game. Thank you for this and keep supporting us.

Cheers
