- 22nd March 2008: Luca Elia - Show Hand is a poker game by Astro Corp. The game is aimed at the italian market (this version at least), and seems to be locked to the default settings (cards with fruits, etc.). It runs on Astro Corp.'s older platform, on which they developed several gambling / slot / poker games. The hardware is indeed pretty straightforward: a 68000, 256 colour sprites, and an OKI sound chip. Thanks to f205v & MAME Italia.

- 18th March 2008: f205v dumped Show Hand.
