candywriter's comments:


Candywriter is proud to announce the release of Imagine Poker 2, an all-new rewrite of the original. Imagine Poker v1 was one of the first 552 apps on the App Store when it opened on July 11, 2008. Since then, the game has proven a steady success and has achieved over 300k downloads and several million games played. Imagine Poker 2 adds tons of new features plus new rooms and characters. While the game is a complete rewrite, it is actually published as just a 2.0 update to the previous version so that existing users can update at no charge.

Okay Obama should be really conservative and do like nothing (it's the truth...) also he should be pretty stoic. Also he should be Honest and smart (idk)

Mona Lisa should be really aggressive, deceptive, and really emotional, really really emotional. Like they goes fricken crazy if she loses or anything bad happens.

The Tooth Fairy should be invisible because no one ever sees her. (him?) Though playing poker by putting your cards/bet under your pillow and going to sleep would slow down the game a bit...

She raises a lot, but only in small amounts, due to the flow of pocket change coming in. She'd probably stick to small gains/losses due to the same reason unless the pot gets big fast - when there's a lot of money there she's ready to grab it!

1. Barack Obama - he plays the game smart - uses his cards right but his opponents are jealous of him. He is an aggressive player.

2. Cleopatra - she gets emotional at times when she wins at cards. She can play deceptive with her seductive eyes so you can never tell her true cards!

3. Mona Lisa is honest and yet conservative. She plays cards slow but you can really tell what she is up to.

4. Merlin is a practioner with cards magic. He has his secret moves with cards with his cards.
Now you see it, now you don't!

5. Genghis Khan always like to win a battle especially cards! Let him win or he will growl and kill you with his sword!

The abominable snowman should be aggressive and somewhat stupid relying on luck, getting angry and throwing snowballs at the screen when he loses.

Amelia Earhart goes on a beer run halfway through the game and never returns.

Cleopatra has someone else hold her cards and play her hand. She seems disinterested.

Mona Lisa - great poker face. Seems sneaky, but I just can't tell.

Napoleon - hides cards in his shirt... watch him closely. Likes to go all-in and usually wins.

Robin Hood - gives winnings to player's with few chips

Sherlock Holmes - deduces player's cards from environmental clues, but folds often

Marie Antoinette - loses often, but she's used to losing things, so.....

Abraham Lincoln - Honest Abe.. so he must never ever bluff

Robin Hood - Agressive play towards players with the most pot and easy against players with the smallest
