You can now play the challenging card game Hand and Foot on your mobile device! Hand and Foot is compelling card game where each player is dealt two decks of cards: one 'hand' and one 'foot'. The object of the game is to build melds of cards to form 'books' which are groups of seven or more cards, score as many points as possible, and play all of the cards in your hand and foot decks as quickly as possible. The best Hand and Foot players are those who can accumulate large point totals and quickly go out which traps the other players with cards in their hands and thus leaves them with negative points.
If you enjoy card games such as Canasta, Gin Rummy, or Hearts, than you will absolutely be blown away by the uniquely challenging Hand and Foot! After a practice round or two, a new player can quickly learn the rules and enjoy this extremely addictive game!

What's New in Version 4.5
I am enjoying this app, and have played Hand and Foot in "real" life. I find it interesting that those "players" on this app have different rules than I do. If I take from the discard pile, I get the next 4 cards from the discard pile. If one of the other "players" takes from the discard pile, they get 4 new cards. I'd pick up if I didn't know how many red 3's were in the cards I was getting. Also, I have to have 2 of a card in my hand to pick up, but the other "players" can pick up at any time. And...the other "players" can be out of cards, but NOT out of the game if they have not fulfilled their books. If I try to do same, I get told I can't do that. Can I switch places with those other "players" lol But I do find that I have to use more strategy and be aware of my game especially since there is no talking or interaction like playing for real. If it weren't for the differences in the rules, which is confusing at times, I'd have given it 5 stars. I'd also like to have the option to play partners as I have done in real life. For the money, it helps me work on my skills.
Worth the $ 1.99!
I've been playing this for a couple of years and it's not perfect or like the way I play with friends. But great to have when there isn't anybody available to play. I don't like the last upgrade, it took away the cheat option...I won more with it. I also wish it allowed for playing partners but for
$1.99...it's a deal!
I am wondering if you are gonna fix the bug that takes extra cards out of my hand when I have picked up out of the discard pile then discover I don't have enough points to meld and try to backup...lose cards from my hand that were mine before I picked up!!!
Updates have helped.
There was an update a while ago that really helped this program, and there's another update today that I haven't had a chance to try out yet. The programmers have done a great job over all with a really difficult game to put into an app! I have spent many wonderful hours playing this app, even with its limitations. I can't wait to see what the new update will bring. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication and for listening to our recommendations!!!
