Money is a fast-paced and addictive card game based on the original tabletop eurogame release by Reiner Knizia.
"[O]f the iPhone card game apps we've played so far, Money is our hands down favorite."--Sebastian Blanco, TUAW
You start the game with six bills of random currency. Your goal is to concentrate your reserves into just two or three types of currency before the game ends. To do so, you must spend the money you already have. It takes money to make Money!
Though Money is one of Reiner Knizia's deepest (and richest) card games, it's all been carefully fit into this iPhone release. Recolored bills make it easy to read your currency. Simple gestures allow you to examine your own hand and the bids of your opponents. Everything is animated, for a colorful play experience.
Finally, six different AIs, each with their own personality, help make every game unique. You can slowly discover the AIs' strategies to improve your chances of winning.
Money is one of RPGnet's MobileEuroCard series, all of which share common gestures and animations, making it easy to dive into any game as soon as you've learned your first.
NOTE: Though Money uses GameCenter for leaderboards and achievements, it does NOT support multiplayer play.
Update and cleanup for iOS 10.0.

A great surprise
There's nothing impressive about the screenshots, but don't let that fool you. Even the instructions put me off the game for awhile, they really do very little to get a new player excited. But I decided to give it a shot and within one game it had me hooked (the mechanics are far simpler than I thought they would be). Perfect to get my brain going in the morning and just long enough to play during a break during the day. As a fan of iPhone ports Carcassonne and Catan, I'm extremely pleased to have found something a little more bite-sized for my gaming fix. Wish the graphics, animation, and sound were a little more polished, but if you're like me you'll appreciate a good game more than the presentation. Giving it five stars because I play it so much, but developers should really figure out online multiplayer.
Easy to learn and addictive
This game literally takes about 5 minutes to learn how to play, but then takes longer to create and adapt a successful strategy. I am usually reluctant to buy card games, dice games, or board games, because they often take too long to learn how to play, and the interfaces are usually kind of sloppy. This game is definitely an exception to that rule!
There are several AI players to play against, and all of them have slightly different strategies. Rarely do they make stupid moves, but if you pay attention, you will be able to beat them.
The entire game is played in less than five minutes, but you I'll come back and play it again and again, which is, of course, the sign if a truly great game!
Fun game marred by awful interface
I like the card game and this version is true to that experience and therein lies athe problem. It actually takes as long to deal out the cards as in real life (actually longer) which is just plain silly. Too much wasted time. Same thing for AI turns, even with the delay set to none.
There are also a couple of problems with the game and interface. When you slide your bid it sometimes stops before your finger stops. The other bug is rare but I have seen a player bid get messed up so that only one card is showing but the listed bid amount is higher and the bid remained face up during the deal. Lastly the bid of the player on your left is hidden by the turn indicator.
I would love to rate this app 5 stars as I like the actual game but the interface issues and bugs prevented that.
