Thirty One (You may also know Thirty One by another name such as Big Tonka, Blitz, Scat, or Cadillac) is a strategy based card game where you try to get your hand of three cards closest to thirty one (only cards in the same suit are added together). You play against two computer controlled opponents named Jack and Jill.

"Overall Thirty One is deceptively addictive – it’s another one of those ‘gotta play just one more round’ games that I personally love." - panappticon.com
"A different kind of card game that requires a bit of strategy combined with the mind games of poker - challenging, unpredictable and addictive!" - www.appsized.com
"Thirty One is particularly fun because it feels familiar but is truly unique. All in all, it’s a fun game, and well worth a play." - appgirlreviews.com
"It's a very addicting game and it's very easy to use. 5/5" - Daniel_Mysterio (iTunes Reviewer)
I've never played 31 before but it's a really fun card game! App works well, and for some reason I just keep wanting to play one more game...
Simple but fun
The graphics are pretty simple, but it really doesn't take away from the game. It's a good card game and I really enjoy it.
The game is really slow when Jack and Jill are having a turn. Can't tell if they are taking the card I discard, the computer is very generic about who is losing 'one or two' coins.
