The mobile app deals out drinks, suits, and scores
A new mobile app called Beermont Stakes combines horse racing, enjoying drinks, and playing cards. The animated game was developed for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. A simulated race decides the number of drinks that gets passed out upon completion of the game. Beermont Stakes is now available on the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
Beermont Stakes can be played by any number of people on a single phone or tablet. Players or teams can attach their names to their chosen card suit (diamond, heart, club, or spade). A bet can be set between 1 and 24 by each player or team.
An initial deal sets cards adjacent to the seven markers alongside the racetrack. The number of cards shown for each suit multiplies the player’s or team’s bet. Cards are distributed one at a time to decide which horse gets to advance. The first horse to reach the seventh marker wins the game. The amount of the bet is then converted into the number of drinks to be handed out for all players to consume.
The progress of each horse is narrated in the style of trackside commentary during the course of the race. The victory is celebrated with a burst of confetti and a roaring crowd.
The animation provides detailed 2D graphics of the horses, cards, track, scoreboard, and crowd. The game’s playful attitude encourages friendly competition and easygoing good times.
Matt Cestone, the creator of the app, said, “It's long been my favorite drinking game and I thought it would be fun to make it into an app.”
Beermont Stakes is priced at $0.99 in the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
