NE1 else addicted ?

This makes no sense, it's basically cookie clicker with cards.

I mean I feel like it would be addicting it's a game based on poker hands.

Also cookie clicker is like tailor made to send consistent dopamine to your brain for a while with all those increasing numbers.

Ghhahahahahh Tp4 messed up, didn't know what increase rank of card meant.

Changed 2 Aces into 2x 2s.  That's what it meant.... wth gon' do with 6x 2s in the deck.

It's not at all a cookie clicker, that's a type of AFK game, which Balatro absolutely isn't.

That said I really enjoyed it though! Even as a former poker player I thought it was really well done.

Sum'o deez cards yo, why do they even exist?

Red card is performing excellently, skip booster = +3x multi, it's @ 30x multi already for Tp4. Seems good early game, since early boosters don't help much, just skip.

The only legendary joker Tp4 saw so far is only 21 multi, so this seems almost as good, and you can unlock / use right away.

OK, for future reference,  ANKH, spectral card,  perfect copies, including the charged multiplier, so if you have a +45 multi, it will guarantee you a +45 copy.

It copies a random joker, destroys all other jokers, but if you only got a big card, then you can sell the other 4, and guarantee the copy.

Tp4 just copied his RED card with that much charge, now guaranteed 90x multi, this is awesome.

This is absolutely ridiculous now. Royal flush with 4 cards.

Okokokok. Doin' pretty gud' so far.

Egg,___________+3 sell value per turn (neg)
Four Fingers, ____all flush and straight played with 4 card
Raised Fist, _____add double lowest rank card in hand to multi, (neg)
Supernova, _____add number of hand type played (flush) to multi
Swashbuckler,____add sell value of cards to the left to multi (neg)
Smeared Joker, __diamond = heart, spade = club suit (poly)
Ancient Joker, ___played suit = 1.5x multi, suit req change each round. (neg)
Blueprint, ______copies right joker abilities.
Cardsharp, ______x3 Multi if card hand (flush) has been played

All flush build, the problem is, down to 5 card hands, it feels dicey.

Save temperance-tarot for fool-tarot, for extra +$50 when it shows up.

What's the hardest hitting hands you guys have gotten? This build is around ~300K. Don't think it has durability, it feels like it'd get outpaced by the Levels-creep soon. Can't use any complement jokers because Negative spectrals won't help, can't afford to reduce hand size anymore, it's already too dangerous for flushes.

Oh boy I can see this game getting addicting. I just played a few hours after seeing this post.

I had to pull myself away after a few hours. It really is a fun and sticky game, especially on 4x game speed. I completely lost myself for a bit there

Vangelis Blade Runner tracks are excellent background for Balatro.

Once you get used to playing, the whole game is just flipflipflipflipflipflipflip.  The sound is so satisfying.

Even with the music off, you can just calmly be enveloped in, and absorb The Balatro.

What are the odds.   Got a +3 lvl Straight flush on a blind skip, never thought it would amount to any use. Then here it is, Spade Royal Flush.

Sumtin's up, the game is messing with you.

It's stifling how early you have to commit to a build.
