LocaLoco has a new Facebook application game, Big 2 Bonanza, the Best Big 2 Poker Action in Facebook. At the moment, Big 2 Bonanza is available in an open beta version, so there are several missing features. However, the game is completely playable while creators carefully consider players’ feedback using a survey.
What is Big 2 Bonanza? It is a card game based on, well the name suggest, Big Two game. Big 2 is very popular game also known as Top Dog and Deuces. What are the rules? The player that holds the 3 of diamonds in the first round starts the game as he lays down a poker style hand on the table. Other gamers have to lay down their hands with the cards (same number of them) that beats the previous person. If the pair of sixes is laid down, the next player has to lay down a pair of sevens or better. The highest ranking cards are twos, not the aces and that is unusual in this card game. If the player cannot play a hand because he hasn’t got the better cards, he/she has to pass play on the next player. In case every player passes, then the cards laid on the table are being removed and the the first player begins the cycle again with a new poker style hand. The player that wins the round, starts the next round and so on.
There are two ways to play the game: against other real players or against computer-controlled ones. At this moment, it is better to choose the “solo” option, because the game still gains the popularity and there are not so many players online at the same time. At present it is not so easy to start a match due to the fact that four full players are required for the match, but as the popularity of the game increases, it will be more interesting to play it live against the real opponents.
