Five Suits Lite (formerly named "Five Crowns Lite") is a turn-based card game based on the Five Crowns game by Set Enterprises, Inc. With this lite version, you can play 6 rounds of Five Suits on a single device against other players in the same room or against the computer. The lite version also includes a free trial of Wild Card Protection for up to 10 games. The full version of the game Five Suits Connected is available in the App Store. The full version adds the following features: (1) play online games against friends and family or find new opponents from around the world, (2) access to online leaderboards tracking most wins and lowest score, (3) play full 11-round games, (4) access to in-app add-ons to assist in game play including Wild Card Protection, Ask AI for suggested moves and Game Log which reports every move in the game, (5) different background options and (6) access to new features as the game is improved. Feedback is always welcome and has helped shape the game. I hope you enjoy!

The objective is to obtain the lowest number of points after playing all eleven hands of the game.

The game consists of two 55 card decks ranging from 3's to Kings of 5 suits. There are an additional 6 Jokers in the deck. In the first round, 3 cards are dealt to each player. Each round the cards are reshuffled and an additional card is dealt to each player. This continues until each player is dealt 13 cards in the last round.

Each turn starts by either drawing a card from the deck or picking up the top card from the discard pile. The turn is completed by discarding one card. A player can meld some or all of his or her books and/or runs during any of his or her turns. When a player melds all of the cards out of his or her hand they "open". When a player is able to open, the remaining players each have one last turn. Each player will pick up a card, lay down a card and meld his/her books and/or runs to remove those cards from his/her hand. The remaining cards count as points against him/her for this round. The player who goes first in each round rotates. Play continues until the eleventh hand when the Kings are wild. The player with the lowest score wins.

A little hard to get used to at first

A little hard to get used to at first, but once we caught on, it plays like the real thing. Love the “Oh, yeah”, when you meld your cards!

Great Game, But Occasional Scoring Errors

This is a very fun game, and 95% of the time works smoothly. But occasionally, it records an incorrect score. For example, I was playing a two-player game. The other human player opened. After I melded, I had one 7 card left. The game scored me 37! Check your score each hand!

Good practice for Five Crowns

This game is great practice for Five Crowns! Additionally, I was having trouble with the size of the cards and the support person was very patient and told me how to change it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your patience and I’m glad that the Large Cards add-on addressed your concern. Enjoy the game!
