Play Tonk on your iPhone!!
Tonk (or Tunk) is a fast paced card game similar to rummy. It's a popular pastime for lunch breaks.
- On your turn, touch the deck to draw a card. Call "Low" before drawing if you think you have the lowest hand.
- Rearrange cards in your hand if you wish by dragging them onto each other.
- Select cards by touching them and either discard one or play a spread (3+ of same rank, or 3+ of same suit and consecutive).
- You can also play on existing spreads already laid down.
- Win by getting rid of all your cards, or by successfully calling "Low" with the lowest hand. A bonus is awarded if you 'Tonk out' by playing all your cards without discarding.
The cards will animate to their destinations and there is background music to select from (or turn off).
Your progress is maintained as a 'bankroll' displayed at the bottom along with a description of your rank. See if you can reach the PRO status as you play against the iPhone computer!
What's New in Version 1.1
- AI opponent will now call Low.
- Card images easier to see and read.
- Easier to tap deck and pile
- Reduced size for easier download
Thanks for your continued suggestions and feedback!
This is a great game. Reminds me of when I was a kid, maybe still. Anyway, great game. Would however like see that annoying click and cheering disappear.
Great app! Wish you could turn the clicking off though. That gets annoying after about 10 seconds.
I love this app. I'm at $1,400! It would be great if it looked cooler with multiplayer. With not annoying sounds that can be turned off without putting my phone on vibrate.
