From the creators of Four Card Golf, comes another classic golf card game called Eight Card Golf. This game will challenge you to nine rounds of competition against four other players. Each round or hole represents a typical hole in golf where the goal is to get the lowest score possible. During a typical hole, you will exchange as many of your eight cards you can before one of the other players finishes. A player is finished when all of his/her cards are showing face up. Cards are scored by face value except for kings and jokers. You can also create pairs that will reduce your score.

* Play solo game against three computer opponents or play a game with up to four friends on a single iPad.
* Complete in-game instructions.
* Resume last played game at any time.
* 5 different color backgrounds.

Computer sees all
I like this game a lot except for the way the computer opponents are programmed. If a face-down card is one that will complete a pair with a face-up card in the same column, and the same card comes up in the pack or discard pile, the computer player won't pick up that card. It makes me wonder just how "rigged" the game is in favor of the computer opponent. While I have won many times, this "glitch" makes me suspect.
Love this game!
This Golf game is lots of fun. I play it over and over and is challenging but entertaining.
Some reviewers have said it is rigged. I have seen this happen... for instance, in a turn they may have a 9 up and a card down, and they don't pick up a nine from the pile. Obviously, they 'knew' it was a match. However, three turns later they 'forget' that there is a matching card, and they replace it! And, I rarely lose anyway, so I don't mind.
Some reviewers said it miscalculates points, but I think they didn't read the scoring methods. For instance, two sets of pairs of the same card is a MINUS twelve points. Game scoring is always correct.
It's a fun game, and worth whatever small fee there is!
HOWEVER... I got a notice that it must be updated before the next OS. So, my requests:
- please, keep it compatible! Make the needed updates.
- create a setting where I can control game speed.
- let me turn off the bong sounds at the start
- create a haptic buzz when someone turns all their cards, so I know to make a good last turn
Less important but interesting and easy:
- Let me put names to my other players.
OK, but not great
Computer knows the cards, so game isn't completely "fair." However, I'm still able to win most of the time and unfortunately that has made the game less fun over time. Wish the cards were more realistically chosen and some true sense of chance was built in. That being said, I have enjoyed the game and spent a loooooot of time playing it!
