World of Warcraft is probably one of the most popular MMORPGs (Massively Multi-Player Online Role Playing Games) ever. Texas hold’em is probably the most popular poker game ever. There’s plenty of crossover between players of WoW and Texas hold’em, just as many MAGIC the Gathering pros enjoy both of these games. So if you think playing or watching someone play online blackjack or poker is boring, think again. Thanks to a mod forked from Anzac Hold’em, you can now enjoy both World of Warcraft and Texas hold’em at the exact same time!
Texas Hold’em and World of Warcraft
Card games and gambling have always been a part of the role playing game experience. Whether it’s a friendly (or not so friendly) game of poker at the local tavern or rolling dice in a back alley, someone in your RPG party is probably going to find themselves embroiled in a game of chance sooner or later. In the old days of role playing games, such games of chance were resolved by a few random dice rolls. Today, your World of Warcraft characters can have a real gaming experience right in the WoW universe.
How to Play WoW Texas Hold’em Poker on Your Computer
To play WoW Texas hold’em poker, all you have to do is download the add-on and attach it as a mod to your World of Warcraft program. Log in to World of Warcraft and as long as your opponents also have the application, you can start playing Texas hold’em poker at any time, within the game. It’s a great way to kill time between quests or battles and to bond with your World of Warcraft party mates.
Rules and Notes Regarding World of Warcraft Texas Hold’em Poker
The rules of WoW Texas hold’em are the same as the rules of regular Texas hold’em. Please note that this does not turn your World of Warcraft game into an online poker site. You’ll be playing for chips, that’s all. You can agree with your opponents to play for Warcraft gold or real cash, but as World of Warcraft is not a gambling site, this is not recommended, especially in locations where the legality of online gambling is in question.
