"When I have fifteen minutes to kill, Poison is one of the better ways to go! (Forgive the unintentional pun.)"

- Tom Vasel, Boardgame Reviewer

From the mind of award-winning designer Dr. Reiner Knizia comes this simple and addictive card game!

It’s an exciting battle of skill, luck, and nerves in Reiner Knizia’s Poison. As potion-makers brewing magic elixirs, players play numbered Potion cards into one of three, colored cauldrons, being careful not to overfill them. The player who overfills the cauldron must take all of the cards that go with it, including any of the deadly Poison cards that were mixed in! Players with either the most or least of a Potion at the end of the game might just have a chance of surviving the potions lab and winning the game.


"All in all, I think that Reiner Knizia’s Poison is an excellent iPhone game. It is the right level of challenge that I want from my iPhone: something that is interesting, plays quickly, but can be put down easily if more pressing matters come up. The value you get for the low price of $2.99 makes this a worthwhile purchase. I highly recommend it for both German game fans and iPhone game enthusiasts."

Great little card game!

I'm a big fan of Knizia's (Modern Art is my favorite) so it's nice to see one of his games make its way to the app store. Poison is a simple card game but with quite a bit of press-your-luck style decision making. The graphics are based on the original card game (what you'd expect, I suppose), though the sounds are really quite good, and the computer players in this game don't take it easy on you. Playing with four, five, and six players is nice, though four definitely plays the quickest. Hopefully the developers update the game with some hot seat play (but not before they make Modern Art!). Poison is definitely one of the best card games in the app store right now.

4/5 stars

Very fun!

This is a really fun card game! It's really cool to set "traps" with your poison cards (put poison cards in cauldrons you know you can't take). I had a little trouble at first understanding the rules, but once I got the hang of it I was hooked. Definitely going to stay on my iPhone for a while.

4/5 stars

Very Impressive Translation!

I would love the 3-6 player option (since that's what the game supports in real life). I would also LOVE Multiplayer even if it's just one other human on the same network. It would really enhance the game greatly.

Other than that I think you've created an app that does the good Dr. Knizia proud. I hope to see more ports of his games (Ra, anyone? Modern Art) to the iPhone, especially by a group as talented as Griptonite.
