FYI, two new Kindle apps:
POGO Hearts, Spades and More! (5 Card Games for Kindle)
by Electronic Arts Inc ($3.99)
TakeNote (A Note Taking Tool for Kindle)
Play 5 popular card games: Hearts, Spades, Euchre, Gin and Canasta.
In Hearts, the object is to win as few points-paying hearts as possible or to win all of the points-paying cards at once. The winner is the one who finishes with the fewest points at the end of the game. In Spades, the object is to bid and win a specific number of hands, by playing the highest card by round or by playing the highest spade. The team that bids and wins the most hands, wins the game. In Euchre, the object is for you and your partner to get as many tricks per round as possible. You get tricks by having the highest trump card or highest suited card if no trump card is played. The team that scores 10 points first wins. The goal of Gin is to make sets of cards, based on runs in suit or matching rank. The player who can make the most matches earliest typically wins. In Canasta, you make sets of up to seven cards. The player who first makes sets of all his cards will make the most points and typically wins.
Learn and master each game through in-depth tutorials with rules and tips on how to improve your play and track your stats across all 5 games.
