Pochecko is inspired by two great games, Texas Hold'em and Chess. It was conceived as a fun way for players to build poker hands on a game board and outmaneuver opponents.
Originally, Pochecko was an 8 player board game, which used an 8 sided die (pictured above). This theme was changed to better serve the game's mechanics. Thus, the game now has up to 4 players and uses a 12 sided die.
The Board was colorized and cards were assigned to spaces to give each player equal access to card values and suits.
The Board was re-drawn using Trimble SketchUp. Some outter layers were stripped off of the board, game pieces were selected, and a list of poker hand values was added. It was in this format that the game was presented at the New York Toy Fair 2013.
". . . especially fun . . ."
