More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 10+.

Get ready for a card game that makes all other forms of entertainment look like deadwood: Aces® Gin Rummy!

The cards are dealt. You pass on the up-card and draw from the stock. Two melds already and youve only drawn once! Sort the high cards down and discard that king. Not much deadwood, but if you knock now, you might get undercut. Its risky either way, but you hang in there, hoping for a spade or a seven.

One more draw...and...GIN!

Cast of Characters

Want to play Gin Rummy against an elegant Victorian skunk? Weve got you covered. How about a dapper beaver in a collar and waistcoat? You can do that too. With 11 different animated characters to choose from, including a variety of well dressed ladies and gentlemen (and equally well dressed farm animals and robots), our cast of quirky characters will charm the aces out of you.

Gameplay For All Skill Levels

If youre new to Gin Rummy, dont worry. The EASY difficulty setting is a great way to ease into the game. If youre looking for more of a challenge, HARD will have you planning every move and really watching the discards. Whatever your skill level, our adjustable difficulty system has the right setting for you.

Traditional Scoring

Games in Gin Rummy can be customized to be played to 100 (if youre looking for a quick game), 150, 250 or 300 (if youd like a game that lasts a bit longer). Scoring follows classic rules with a 100 point bonus for winning, a 20 point bonus for each hand won, and double points for shutting out your opponent!

    Fun and addictive

    Love this app! I am a huge fan of Jungle Gin on Pogo and because there is no app for Pogo for the Nook I got this one. While I don' t care for the graphics as much on this Nook app, the game is fun and addictive. I have never had any problems with loading or playing either.

    Could be one of the best games, but....

    I bought this game last year........It has 3 problems

    1. When using aces in a straight , you can't make an ace king queen...only ace two three. I was told that they didn't have a fix yet. I would have to go back on my receipts to know when I purchased , but I know it was before fall....

    The other problem is that you can't organise your hand & play the cards as you choose.....Since this isn't a problem in their other card games, I don't understand why this game can't let you...

    If they would fix these 2 things, this would be a 5 star game....without the fixes, I rate it a 3

    Addictive

    Love this game. Very addictive. Nice graphics. My only suggestion, when given a choice of avatar, the chosen image should be removed from the virtual opponent list. Sometimes it appears that you are playing yourself. Intense graphics do drain the battery so keep your power cord handy.

    Good graphics

    Cards are easy to read,realistic board set up,but do be careful that your finger selects the proper card for discard as the cards in your hand are close together.

    Great fun for all ages!

    My granddaughter 9 and I over 50 both enjoy playing this game. There are three difficulty levels and 5 ending scores so you can make it last as long as you want. Love it!

    Fun and addictive

    My kids and I play this game a lot and we love it. The graphics are very good. You can change the level of play, as well as your character picture.
