Kudos to the developers for coming up with an iphone-playable version of PH's favorite card game! I can play over & over w/o any problems. Really nice method to practice for the real thing, I say.:) I checked on the full version & with the added features (like having chips & pot money) I think it might be good also but since our family plays weekly I'm okay w/ this for now. The look/design can surely improve, but I'm not complaining. *clap clap clap*

Options are limited..


This is a very addictive game. Reminds me of the Philippines and my aunts and uncles playing this game under a tree... However please provide all the options when u pick up a thrown card! There have been many times where I could have won some games but didn't because I wanted a different way to play a thrown card. Also I like the token thing. It would be nice if you lose money if u lose a draw or something

Could be 5 stars but .... but keeps crashing!!


Very addictive game but keeps crashing! Please fix. Could you add where we could keep score, by point system or coin tokens, and be able to play with FB friends? Then it'll be 5 stars!!!!!
