Found this game through WarpDoor; great game!  Very good, appropriate audio (love how the music develops as you play) with an evocative and cohesive aesthetic!  A very interesting design for a game that I think has a lot of potential; definitely like how your reward grows as your risk, so like early on you can go a little risky.  Even in this jam game form, I had a lot of fun and thought the length of the game was right around that sweet spot.

Definitely felt like some assists were more powerful than others in some circumstances (I always go for box assist if it's in middle row or column).  Compound this with the ability to pass for minimal penalty the dominant strategy seems to be lead risky and then fold if you can't guarantee a win.  As such it's just a matter of patience before an inevitable finish.

Really slick visual and music. The concept is very interesting too although I keep loosing :D Even had a +9 help card and managed losing. Don't know if that's a bug

This could be very fun and I love the idea, however I seem to lose almost every round because before I get a hint token, I just get a vampire. I understand that it's supposed to be an accurate depiction of gambling, but it's just not fun enough.

Everything else, music, UI, graphics, idea, are on point.

Good point. The difficulty is a bit too harsh right now. I'm planning to tweak it tho. Stay tuned!
