Ratings and Reviews
Great game, but Spades and Hold ‘Em have small problems
I don’t know how to play 90% of the games in this app, but I love the ones that I do know how to play. My only complaints are that Spades cannot be played with a partner (not even a computer partner), and everyone knows that Spades is played with a partner. Also, Hold ‘Em won’t let me control my wager. I can only wager one chip at a time. It won’t let me go “all in”. But other than that, I really like this game. I will give it 5 stars when they add a computer partner to Spades and allow me to go “all in” in Hold ‘Em. But for now I give it 4 stars. But still the best card game I’ve found thus far for the Mac.
Entertaining, lots of games… AI is bad for breaking rules
Has probably more games than I will ever use and for the most part is very entertaining. My only problem is the computer seems to be able to break rules at its desire. For example playing Rummy500… The computer made a run of hearts all the way from the Ace to King. The problem was, the 2, 4 and 7 were in my hand.
Also the ability to deselect the card rather than be forced to make the move even if you just tapped without moving would be nice. Another would be the ability to see cards that are on the board already as the placement blocks your ability to see what cards have been played.
All card games in a single App. Love variety
I love this app. It has all of my favorite solitaires games in one place. The only thing i miss, that Windows versions has, is the moving cards. You have to click on the mouse pad and drag the card instead of tap/double tap and drag. Not a big deal if using a mouse though. Also, Cntr+d to deal is not working. A programmed hotkey undo like Cnt+z would be great. All that being said, the app is great. Even without my recommendations, I still think this app deserves a 5 star rating.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
