Poker Blitz!

September-December 2009

I was on the original concept and prototype team for a new Zynga game on Facebook, Poker Blitz!. The challenge was to explain Texas Hold'em Poker to a player who had very little poker knowledge or experience. Here are some early explorations of different ways to lay out cards to show it's a combination of each player's hole cards + the community cards that make a hand, different variations of hand strength meter designs and placements, and friend ladders.

Other screens including the start screen, power-ups store, avatar store, and hand summary popup.
