Bicycle® How To Play for iPad

By The United States Playing Card Company

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Can't remember the rules? Don't know what game to play with 5 people? Bicycle® Brand is proud to present How to Play. Now on your iPad!

It's exactly what it sounds like: the complete rules to over 75 card games, new and old, written and illustrated step-by-step. Search our database for a game you know to eloquently explain the rules to others, or find a new game someone else suggests. Have an extra player? Search for games by the number of people who want to play. Have a variety of kids and adults eager to play together? You can search games that work for both age groups.

The possibilities are endless. Pull it up at your next poker night when a newbie isn't sure how to play Hold'Em. Find a game for eight when you pull out a deck of cards at a party. Clarify grandpa's rickety rules on gin rummy. Teach your parents to play Presidents. Finally get into the nuances of Bridge and start your own Bridge Group.

Annoying card sound

Just downloaded the app and it seems to have easy rules for a couple of games I checked on. However, I gave it only 3 stars because of the sound. Is there no way to turn off the annoying sound of cards shuffling each time you do anything? Very annoying!


It has many games to play but not as many as I wanted. The instructions are hard to follow. They barely make any sense. This app is almost useless to me. I guess I could use it for finding out new games to play, but the instructions are so poorly worded I just end up searching on the internet how to play the game instead.

No rules for 500?

I could find no rules for the regular game of 500, although they have rules on the Bicycle website. A search for 500 only turns up a banner ad. A search for 5 turns up 500 Rum. Poor search capability and no rules for 500 makes this 2 stars from me.
