Who is Table 631 for?
For anybody who feels one or more of the following:
- Prevalent online casino games are manipulated.
- They involve complex rules.
- Traditional cards are boring.
- They lack the element of surprise and suspense.
- When you get your cards, you sort of know whether they are good or not, making the game predictable.
- Nothing new has come for decades.
- Games should be engaging and rules should be intuitive.
- They should be super FUN!
Why Table 631?
Table 631 is the only innovative multi-player game which aims to provide:
- Thrill of pure randomness
- Royal casino experience
- Simple yet highly engaging and strategic game play
How does it work?
The dealer puts 6 cards on the table and further gives one card to each player. Unlike traditional cards, these cards have numbers on them!
Players place bets strategically by looking for cards that are numerically close to their card.
When players place equal money, the dealer removes 3 cards from the table. Players get another chance to place bets.
When bets become equal again, two more cards are removed, leaving the last card behind.
Players place bets on the last card until they are equal. Whoever is closest to the last card, WINS!

Help us build our dream
We chose Kickstarter because of our belief in the community. It's the best platform to convey our idea and seek your help in making it the best online casino game ever! We have put in a lot of effort to conceptualize and prototype this game, with your support we want to take it to the next level!
If we are able to raise $50,000, our plan is to integrate Table 631 with Skype and Google hangout so that you can enjoy it with your distant family members and friends.
We have conceptualized three more games aligning with our vision (innovation, simplicity and, high engagement) and if we get your support to raise $100,000, we will be able to launch all 4 games by the end of this year!
People like to play cards games during social get togethers. They are fun! For the most part, they help boost comradery between the players. However, all famous card games have one thing is common; the users need to learn how these games are played! They need to play quite a few games to get themeselves familiar with it and overcome the learning curve. Some newbies also keep rules chart with them for reference. But, aren't games supposed to be immersive? Why can't the rules be intuitive and simple enough to prevent users from the pain of learning and remembering these rules?
The initial phase is almost like a disappointment, which almost everybody has to go through where they are outperfomed by others. Aren't games supposed to be fun?
I attended a halloween party last year where people were playing Poker and I was asked to join them. I felt a little hesitant to join as I know I am inept at playing complex card games. The first few games were all disappointment as despite of getting good cards, I didn't know where I stand on the rule chart and I kept losing. After getting a hang of the game, I started winning a few games. However, I wasn't fun. I left the party feeling jaded!
I pondered over it a little and realized that traditional card games, in general, have complex rules which affects user engagement a lot. There is a good deal of initial roadblock that prevents new players from getting on board. I then approached a few friends and relatives to see if they felt the same. I was surprised to realize the gravity of the problem. A lot of people mentioned how they feel repugnant to card games because of the same reasons. Additionally, people told me that the fun and excitement gets over, soon after they receive their cards, as a lot of times they can guess their likelihood of winning the game. This makes their experience less exciting.
After researching more on it, I found out that online casino games don’t draw out randomly to make the game more engaging. A lot of people often complain about this as it makes it unfair.
I then thought about creating a game that is fair, highly engaging and simple to understand which led to the invention of Table 631!
Our first step
I paired up with a couple of my friends to utilize their background in design and technology in order to craft a delightful gaming experience. The problem statement was clear to us and we started working on the solution. The first idea we conceived was that the game should be number based..I mean who doesn't understand numbers.
We would give each player a card with a number on it and show a range of numbers in the center. After the first round is over, we will pick a number from that range as the final number.
The winning criterion should be such that the user should not be able predict his likelihood of winning as soon as he gets the card. It was like giving each player a key and keeping the locks in the center but the player can’t tell whether his key can open the final lock until he reaches the end of the game.
The winning rule
After much research and testing, we concluded that the card which is numerically closer to the final card in the center will be the winner. This was in sync with our lock-key model. The player wouldn't know what the final number will be so, he can’t predict his winning chances when the game starts. However, he can still bet based on the numbers in the center that he thinks are in his favor.
Refinement in the game
We tried out this concept on a few friends and it worked well in some occasions but in had some issues. If the range in the middle is say 56-66, then the user with card value like 27 would get an idea that their chances of winning are very low. Hence, it won’t be as engaging.
We then decided instead of a range we will open 6 random cards in the middle, reduce it to 3 after Round 1 is and finally, reduce it to one card after round 2 is over.
We tried this out and it has been received as very engaging, exciting and super fun.
Risks and challenges
We have been working on Table 631 for more than 6 months to conceptualize, design and develop a prototype for it. We need more resources to take it further. With your help and support, we will cover the expense of hiring more developers and designers, purchase better server plans, and buy more devices for testing in order to provide a delightful gaming experience on major mobile platforms for FREE!
