A revolutionary new way to play cards where mental skill and savvy replace chance.

Play for fun or compete indirectly against other live players in Skillz® real-prize tournaments!!!

Pick’Em Blitz® is no-betting, all-skill UnPoker where cards are dealt to the players based on player card selection rather than randomly like poker. As a result, it is a very different game for skill has replaced chance while playing directly against 2 to 4 bots.

The interactive tutorial teaches you this enticing. fun game that is easy-to-learn but hard-to-master!

It’s you against some of the smartest bots in the West. From hand-to-hand, you share with them the same face-up, randomly dealt two community cards and card selection limited deck that contains fewer than 30 cards. Then on each of five player card selection rounds, after every player
privately selects a card from the limited deck, any player who has selected the same card as another player is dealt a no-value THWART card. Otherwise, that player is dealt their selected card.

What is your strategy in trying to make the best poker-style hand? Do you try to a) build the best possible hand, b) block another player or c) improve your hand but avoid being blocked?

In Pick’Em Blitz®, player card selection adds the exciting dimensions of building and blocking to gameplay to create a playing environment that
is highly interactive, engaging and competitive.

A tournament game consists of three hands played in 2 minutes or less. Earn points for the quality of your hand if you win — or consolation points if you don’t. You also get points for time left on the clock.

There is no betting! Just smart playing.

Your final tournament score is compared to another live player who is playing with the same exact cards and bots. And whomever gets the
most points... wins!

Pick’Em Blitz® is an absorbing, exciting game for all. Playing it also makes you a better thinker, strategist and card player! (And maybe rich, too!)

Note that Skillz® real prize tournaments are not available in the following states: AZ, AR, CT, DE, IN, LA, ME, MT, SC, SD and TN. If you don’t live in a real prize-enabled region, you can play for fun with Skillz® virtual currency.

AmytheSparrow ,


I like this game. It would be even more fun if the cards were bigger. It does at least have a feature where if you click on a card it pops up a slightly bigger version so you can see it and confirm that’s the card you want to play. I love that feature! Helps a lot towards minimizing mistakes.

But if they made my cards go the whole length of the screen, and put the opponent’s avatars above that instead of beside it, there would be plenty of room for the cards to be bigger.

I’d also like the tutorial to explain scoring. I want a list of which things are worth more, flush, straight, full house, etc. I also can’t figure out what determines who gets first if two of us get the same thing, i.e. both full house.
