Challenging, strategic, and fun
I return to this game every few months because I have so much fun playing it. I've recreated players 5 times so that I can walk through the game play over and over again. This time I've decided to try and get all the trophies. I felt like some of the games are impossible to get all of the trophies, but I got them anyways! I'm super stuck on the trophies for Game 6, and I'm hoping I will have the perfect game that defeats it! Lot's of fun and way more challenging that the other card games I've played on Big Fish.

A Surprise Hit For Me
I love this game even though I'm not a big card game aficionado. It doesn't over-tutor you (a pet-peeve of mine) so you just jump into the fun. If you're unsure of the rules (which seem pretty obvious) you can click and see them, no problem.
There's huge replay value in beating your previous scores and it's just really fun to play.
The only bad thing is the horrible things I've called Henry, Joyce and Alison. I hope you'll forgive me. But you guys were teaming up on me something awful. Plus, what is it with Henry always starting first? I just Quit/New Gamed it until I started first.

Cute Twist on Gin Rummy
Enjoyed this one! 10 card games each with a different twist on gin rummy. You play against 3 computer opponents to complete your house etc (i.e. complete a set of 3 "cabinetry" cards, a run of 3 "dining room" cards, etc.). Nothing too exceptional, but fun to play. Don't regret my purchase, but would be nice to get a little more time gaming for the money.

One of my favorites
Just searched for Picket Fences hoping to find out there is a sequel - no such luck! Come on developers, this is a winner. Hours of fun and yes, I do get annoyed with the neighbors and call them names. I am not too fond of the "screw the neighbors" aspect of some levels and would like to have some of those features as options. Love that each level has slightly different rules so there are different strategies for each one. Good music and characters. Garage Sale is my favorite level.

Gin Rummy with a twist.
I understood the concept of the fairly well and early on. And, yes, I did win all but one hand in the hour demo. However, it was more of a strategic card game and I just didn't find it relaxing. I like my card games to be more laid back.
You goal is to have a run of 3 cards. For example, 1,2 and 3 of non-gold kitchen, living room, etc. will get you "low end" sets but the same thing in GOLD cards will get you a "high end" set and more points. Keep as many GOLD cards in your hand as possible because they help with total points.
I recommend everyone try this unique card game. But, definitely try the first few hands on easy so you get the drift of it. You can always change the difficulty.
If you like card games or games of strategy - this game is definitely for you. Unfortunately, it's a no go for me.
