    Hi,

    Just wondered if anyone fancied a poker tourney, if there's enough interest we could try to get some prizes together.

    Or if you would rather it was another game, post in here.

    Cheers,

    I would go for a poker tournament (or another card game one) but please do not make it that watered down piece of filth masquerading as poker in 42 all time classics.

    No real concern for prizes and I think it would be better if it was ultra quick (monday to friday quick).

    You're free to hold your own competition but GBAtemp will eventually organise another competition with a certain DS game...

    I lover poker, but I feel that the poker included in both of those games has very limited authenticity in them. I find it very, very hard to bluff. So I say no.

    I missed the last 2 tournaments all because I didn't have a wireless router and the official Nintendo USB dongle wouldn't work.... but POKER? Man, I'd suck at that.... Is it true the Metroid Prime tournament got called off because of trainer patches being released?

    what happened here. a poker touney would be pretty cool, but i wouldn't bother organising prizes. The winner should be satisfied with just the Glory!
