Description of MiniCards – Card Deck
MiniCards is the playing-card tabletop sim that lets you play classic playing-card games on your own or with your friends. On your phone, with your friends anywhere – either over the internet or together in the same room.
You can use Sandbox Mode to play any game by creating your own custom tabletop layouts with your very own virtual card deck, or you can play one of the supported games which come complete with rules, moves and AI players. Sandbox Mode is still in development but will receive regular updates in future releases so that ultimately you will to be able to play almost any card game. MiniCards is currently in early-access and early adopters will receive free upgrades when new features are released.
Currently supported games are:
• Solitaire (single- or three-card draw Klondike or Patience)
• Straight Rummy (in this variant melds are placed one per turn and may be added to by other players). You can play single hand games, or to a fixed number of deals, or games until a fixed score target is reached.
• Hearts, the popular trick-taking card game.
• Cribbage (requires in-app-purchase)
As MiniCards is still in early-access we are running a promo where you can invite a friend to play MiniCards and get upgraded to the premium version for free!
AI Players let you play Rummy, Hearts, Canasta and Spades even when your friends aren't around, or along with them if you need to make up the numbers. In-game help in every supported game shows you the scoring and rules without having to leave the game, meaning even a novice can pick up any game and start playing.
The game also has intuitive swipe gestures, high quality card graphics, smooth animations and nice riffly sound effects. Autocomplete and undo actions are available for Solitaire and Freecell. Customise the appearance with a range of playing card backs and tabletop backgrounds.
As this is a work-in-progress, more features are planned for future updates, including more card games, a mod system for scripting your own card games and downloadable playing-card deck designs.
Feedback and suggestions for improvements including which card games you'd like to see are always welcome.
