Great but...

I love the layout. Easy to use interface and so many options! Only problem is you can't favorite or save a game. If I really liked it but don't remember the name or how many players/ age group, how am I going to find it? Other than that it's fantastic! I've learned so many new cars games (:

You want to play single player to 5+ players , but tired of the same old games? This app is great for that! I can spend much more time thinking! You probably heard of the game go fish ,but have you ever heard of the game accordion I have it is really fun for 1 person (for when out are really bored and have nothing to do) this app is really great when you are tied of the same old game! LOVE IT!!!!!!!

Needs Work

I love playing cards, and I'm always learning new games from books or other sources, so I was excited when I found this app. I found, however, that while some instructions must be read once or twice to learn, others are poorly written, and no amount of re-reading them makes them understandable. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to learn something from an unreliable or inadequate source. This app needs serious work in its explanatory section; it is currently unsatisfactory.
