PRLog - Jan. 6, 2012 - SUNSHINE COAST, Australia -- A deck of cards, that universal social icebreaker and provider of countless distorted memories. As sacred as they come, these cardboard symbols of excess have secured their place in the hearts of billions around the world and now into the pockets of iPhone users too apparently.
The ultimate drinking card game iPhone app
Flipped, as it’s appropriately labelled, is a social iPhone app that takes the traditional game of Kings up another level, by allowing players to customise and edit game rules prior to beginning.
Unlike the traditional and more static card game, this outrageous app lets you edit each rule to suit the type of environment you wish to create and it sits right in the palm of your hands…or on an outdoor table.
Benjamin Smith, the creator of Flipped, is an Electrical Linesman by day and entrepreneur by night and is also the co-founder of leading online dating website www.ozlove.com.au with cousin and creator, Troy Henderson. Ben, as he’s known, came up with the app idea over a few afternoon rounds with the lads.
“We’ve always been keen on playing cards, and reckon that they’re the perfect scene setter for gatherings.
“That’s where my mates and I drew the idea from, after committing to a session of Kings and realising that it could be so much more if turned into a customisable iPhone app.
“We developed a set of hilarious rules that are specific to each card and realised how awesome it would be to devise your own rules right there on the spot, before the start of every new game.
“You can even try your luck at Black/Red, by flipping the cards and seeing how many you can guess consecutively.
“The iPhone makes this so much easier, as it’s light and everybody has one, so having a customisable and mobile deck of cards you can take with you on the go is just awesome.
“And that’s exactly the point of Flipped, to take a traditional Kings game and let the contestants make the rules. Simple,“
Developed in conjunction with Australian based iApps Pty Ltd, Flipped is already performing well on iTunes as the iPhone gifting craze has revellers in a spin before Christmas. Available on iTunes for $0.99, Flipped is the perfect party starter.
