You probably know the term Scrum Poker or Planning Poker. At its core, this is a technique or method for the playful estimation of work units during Backlog Refinement.

Early feedback on feasibility and implementation options Rocket Poker helps you factor out natural group dynamics in the planning process so that everyone can have their say, not just the dominant participants.

That's why Rocket Poker is your alternative to other Scrum Poker Tools

In order to understand why Rocket Poker is the perfect Scrum Poker tool, it makes sense to briefly tell the story of how it came about: within the Accso team, agile IT projects are part of everyday work. No wonder we use Scrum Poker in our day-to-day operations. However, no suitable products met our requirements. So, it was not suprising that our team took this problem into their own hands and developed "Rocket Poker" as a community project. Since we are probably not the only ones with this problem, we decided to offer our tool to everyone who would like to use it.
