Want to join in on the shenanigans?
Since we’re still testing, Poker Night is only available in a limited selection of servers. However, you can play Poker and other early Activities in the public Discord Games Lab server!
Everyone is welcome, though only those 18+ will be able to play the game.
Since the game is still an experimental experience, we’re looking to hear feedback directly from our users so you’ll see Discord devs in there pretty frequently!
