Super Hearts

Double Deck Cancellation Chaos

Super Hearts: 8 players, 2 decks

8 players. 2 decks. This is gonna get crazy!

If you’ve ever heard of something called a “computer,” you’ve probably played (and mastered!) the card game “Hearts.” It is therefore time for a new challenge! Double Deck Cancellation Hearts plays exactly like its classic cousin, save for a very interesting twist: when a card is played that matches a card already on the table, the two cards “cancel out” and can no longer win the trick. However, their penalty points still count!

Here’s an example:

You’re feeling smug as you sit in first place. A five of spades is led. You confidently play your jack of spades, thinking you’re safe. You laugh as the guy next to you is forced to play his queen of spades. No other high cards come out until the very last player who…

…plays the other queen of spades!

Your complexion fades as the two queens “cancel out,” and the trick falls to the player with the next highest card: you and your jack.   The tears stream down your face as you collect the trick, absorbing the penalty points of BOTH queens for a total of TWENTY-SIX penalty points.

You are no longer in first.

This is exactly the kind of chaos you may encounter in Double Deck Cancellation Hearts. Think your heart can handle it?

Super Hearts: Two Queens Canceling Out

Two queens of spades?!?!  Both cancelled?!?!  …I’m in a lot of trouble!!!

FEATURES

– Play against 7, 8, 9, or 10 players

– Play against 7 difficulty types, including the smartest and hardest: the ThumbSnail who “slimes like a snail and stings like a hangnail”

Super Hearts: 10 players, 7 difficulties

Think you can take down 10 ThumbSnails? That’s a lot of slime and a lot of pain!

– Hearts Options: can set the jack of diamonds to -10 points, change how many points a game ends at and whether or not a player with that exact score resets back to zero

After getting those two queens of spades, I sure wouldn’t mind a helpful jack!

– Moon Options: choose how many queens of spades and how many hearts are needed to shoot the moon

Both queens of spades and all 26 hearts… Let’s do this!

– Stats: see how well you fare against a certain number of players and a certain difficulty

– Settings to change card speed, animation speed, background color, etc.

    Hi, I’m totally psyched that you have developed a Cancellation Hearts app. I’ve only played hearts with two decks, so the standard single deck game is totally a let down. In the card game that I’ve played over the years, the jack of diamonds has counted as +10 points for whoever takes that hand. Is this how your game is played? It adds an additional component to the game. If the jack of diamonds is included in your version, I’ll gladly purchase your app.

    • Yeah, I feel the same way about standard Hearts, too! It’s just nowhere near as interesting as Cancellation.

      Well, my game is somewhat different in that the jack of diamonds can be worth minus 10 points. Thus, when that option is on, it’s actually beneficial to take the jack of diamonds in a trick. It’s not the default option upon first load, but if you go to the “Options” menu, you can easily turn it on.

      Just to be clear, there are two Android versions of Super Hearts out nowadays. There’s the free version that you can play through Amazon’s Underground app. It’s fully featured, but Amazon sometimes shows an ad when you start up Underground. And, unfortunately, on some devices, it cuts off the top of my game such that you can’t see the point totals of the players in the top row.

      And then there’s the paid version. Again, it’s got all the same features as the free version, but it never shows ads. And it should always display the whole game screen! =) (But if for some strange reason it doesn’t, please let me know as that’s something I could fix!)

      Thanks for your interest!
