Okay you 'fellas' you all know Samantha Fox, right. You've ogled at her pictures, watched her on television chat shows, listened to her record. Now play her at strip poker. Well, it's not really Sam Fox, but your humble Spectrum who plays the game and supplies pictures of the lumpy page three girl. Samantha Fox Strip Poker plays you at the classic Seven Card Stud poker game. Both you and the computer start with 999 credits apiece and you must win as many points as you can by betting on your cards. Every time you reduce the computer's points by one hundred you are rewarded with a digitised picture of Sam Fox taking her clothes off, starting with her gloves at 800 points then the rest of her clothing piece by piece... If she starts winning back the lost points then her clothing is retrieved and if you start losing points then she starts ordering you to take your clothes off, whether you comply or not is another matter.
The game is controlled by two keys one to choose one of the options presented after a dealing and the other to select it. The game is made foolproof by the computer referee who only gives the options relevant for that go, eliminating any mistakes which could otherwise be made.
For the uninitiated Seven Card Stud is a game where the player has to try to make the best hand possible out of the seven cards dealt, the best hand winning the 'pot'. When a hand starts the player is dealt three cards, the third being dealt face upwards so your opponent can see it. From these three cards you must decide whether to pass (throw them in) check (keep your cards but not bet) or bet. The betting continues until either a player calls or both players check. When that happens a further card is dealt and the betting continues. If you have what you think is a jolly good hand then you can up the stakes by raising. The game follows this pattern until all seven cards have been dealt, then the betting continues until a player calls, then both hands are shown and the best hand winds the pot. Throughout a hand there is the option to pass and other relevant options can be chosen if desired.
On the 'B' side of the cassette is an added bonus. No Sam Fox, but a four player Seven Card Stud poker game. The rules are the same but here you can play against up to three computer opponents. In this game there are another two options auto where the computer takes a decision for you and demo, very useful if you're new to poker and want to see what the game is about (try playing two computer players against one another).
