The Silver app lets you play 2-player games of Silver (the card game from Bezier Games, Inc.) against a computer AI. Learn the ins and outs of the game, and practice before taking on your friends!
Your goal in Silver is simple: have the lowest sum by the end of four rounds. To accomplish this, use abilities from the cards you draw, and from cards that are already face up in your village, which consists of five cards. You can trade in matching cards, and also trade out your cards for ones you draw to make matches or to lower your score. End a round early if you think you have the lowest sum by calling for a vote; if you’re right, you score 0 points, and get to use the Silver Amulet of Protection the next round. If you're wrong, though you get the sum of your cards plus ten points!
The app walks you through the game, and the comprehensive Help screen gives you all the details you need to be able to play. While you’re playing, view detailed card abilities just by tapping and holding on them.

Interesting game with frustrating controls
The core game is solid (but not great) card game. There’s very little reason to try up to higher score cards (barring the 13 wild card) thus greatly reducing the risk-reward mechanic relative to dumb luck. However the controls are quite bad. Depending on how exactly you click on a card, it will either play the card, allow you to trade cards, or allow you to look at your hand. If you don’t do it quite right, it will do something other than what you intended. I find that seemingly half of the games this happens one or more times, making the game incredibly frustrating. Obviously that thankfully doesn’t occur in the physical card game.
Fun game but it’s glitchy and cheats
Got the iOS game after have fun playing the board game. Figured it would help me build my skills as well as help pass some time. It plays just like the board game with just the AI. The glitches seem to only happen when you switch to other apps while a game is in progress and typically means you have to quite the game and lose your round. The biggest issue is the game cheats. I started noticing the odds of a 12 or 11 coming up right after I called the game didn’t seem statistically possible. Since then, I’ve witnessed cards changing. On multiple occasions I’ve had multiple 4 cards showing and could see then next 2-3 cards. Then, after calling the game, the next card becomes something different (like a 12) allowing the AI to use that card’s ability. It’s one thing to think you lost because the game cheated, it’s totally different when you know you lost because the game cheated.
Glitchy but fun
In preparation of getting the actual game I have downloaded and played the Silver app game about 100 times. Major drawback is that there are some serious bugs in the app that prevent it from earning 5 stars.
Sometimes unable to select cards to discard; sometimes cards stall mid swap; sometimes an incorrect card is put into my village when playing a 4 and the usual culprit is another 4, regardless of what was actually available and selected; sometimes the app stalls during game 3; and the difficulty level should be adjustable so that as we learn more it gets harder to beat.
What about multiplayer or Bluetooth/online play?
