A standard game of poker is getting a pretty drastic overhaul in a new Kickstarter game titled Drawing Dead. Players face off as various Wild West saloon patrons in the card game with the highest possible stakes, their souls. Half poker, half tabletop game, the gorgeous Day of the Dead inspired artwork and deck design certainly seems worth checking out for anyone who calls themselves a card game fan.
