How does Planning Poker work? The idea behind planning poker is simple. Individual stories are presented for estimation. After a period of discussion, each participant chooses from his own deck the numbered card that represents his estimate of how much work is involved in the story under discussion. All estimates are kept private until each participant has chosen a card. At that time, all estimates are revealed and discussion can begin again. It’s really free. Forever. Mountain Goat Software is providing this tool with no strings attached.

Practical Agile is a free fully featured Scrum tool that runs on a XAMPP stack. It allows you to create and manage Projects, Iterations, Epics, Stories, Story Tasks and Comments using a tool that is simple, easy to use and only does what it needs to do. One of the more useful features is that you can have a hierarchy of Stories or Epics, something that is normally only included in scrum tools at a substantial cost. The hierarchy is easily accessible from most places and visible for each story that is part of a tree. This means Stories can have children (and obviously parents) to an almost infinite level.
This tool is designed to be useful for Agile project management for the developer or first-level manager. It takes a Scrum management approach: Manage by backlog, inform by information radiator and track issues through ToDos.
