In this paper, we introduce the design and implementation of a digital card game that combines mobile phone gestures and multitouch tabletop interactions. Conceptually based on interactions in traditional card games, our Poker game application explores different natural ways of interaction, including touching the table as well as tilting, throwing, and shaking a mobile phone. By exemplarily translating traditional gestures into the digital domain, we provide a use case to discuss useful gestures combing mobile phones with tabletop surfaces, as well as to explore a private-public display setting for digital card games at interactive tables. Additionally, the mobile phone provides a tangible feeling similar to physical cards. The preliminary user study showed that users preferred using mobile phones for interaction compared to direct interaction on the multi-touch table.
