    Something for Everyone

    Definitely worth the money. So many different card games to play and there is something for everyone in the family. My 11 year old is learning to play rummy and spades, but still enjoys old maid and go fish as well.

    Who would by any other app?

    Why buy several apps when you can get them all here in one app. You can save a lot of money. Say each game were seperate apps, each $0.99. This has 60+ card games for $3. You're saving over $57!

    There's a great variety of solitaire games in this app. They are very easy to use with the touchscreen. My favorite of the many games is Canfield because it keeps a cumulative total. This app would be better to me if all the games kept cumulative totals, but each game does have a statistics area so you can check and see how well you are doing. I recommend this for ease of use and variety!

    Crazy Eights+ -- Incredible Value

    I was happy to find Crazy Eights. This has all of the card games from my childhood. This app is of incredible value and I wish I had seen it sooner, because I would have saved $2 and not purchased two other applications.

    This app has over 50 card games. I had this app on my iTouch for a couple of
     years . The author adds new game often. They are very good at listen to our
     comments and making repairs or update very quickly. I have spent may hour
    playing the games in this app and would recommend it for young and old. 
    Now with the app on the Nook with its larger screen this app is even better. I
    now play this app on the nook most of the time. If you like to play cards this is
    the app for you. It has most any card game you can think of and a few I have
    never heard of. The author keeps a website that has all the games rules and
    detail instructions on how to play each game. I have found it to be very easy
     to use and its information complete for each game.

    If you like to play cards this is the app.  It has all the good card games in it.  You never tire
    of it because there are so many games to choose from.  Hearts is my favorite because i can practice 
    for when i play for real with real people.

    Fantastic value

    I love this app, it's one of the only ones I play regularly because there are just so many variations to choose from. Some are a bit silly (playing War against a computer is really just clicking a lot) but most are a lot of fun and just challenging enough to keep me interested and pass the time. Fantastic app, highly recommended.

    Great variety of games. Worth the money.

    Plus excellent variety or games and some great options includes rules of play.
    Minus,no option to auto sort cards which would have been great ingames like hearts and rummy.
    I hope a future addition includes this improvement.

    Good, but...

    There's a no "restart" button on this app. So, every time I want to re-do the game, I have to press "New Game" and it really bums me out.

    This is a really good set of games and has a wide variety. The only change I would like to see is for the board to orient itself according to the position of the nook. If I could add a game, it would be a card version of rummicube. The rummy game in the set doesn't make sense to me.
