Having already established that the collective genius of the AIs in Super Sevens constructed a time machine to travel to the past, it’s no surprise that they also scouted the future in order to continue their chart dominance.  There will be a lot of hopeful entries in 2016, but only a few will emerge victorious.  Here are the Top Ten Best Card Games Apps for iOS and Android… in 2016:

When asked why Simple Sevens for Android was taken down by its iOS brother in a heated matchup, S.S. Android replied, “I just couldn’t handle that new Super Button.  Too much, too cool.  He deserved to beat me.  There’s no shame in second place.  What?  Tenth?  Are you sure?”

Simple Sevens for iOS refused to answer any questions.  He spent the whole interview pushing his Super Button while talking smack about his Android brother.  Though when prodded about only coming in 9th, he admitted his Super Button just couldn’t compare to all the features of Super Sevens.

When it was not-so-subtly implied that Super Sevens for iOS was occupying a whole lot of spots on the charts due to some recent weight gain, Super Sevens for iOS responded, “Hey, man, I recently shrunk my file size.  And it’s not like I ever see you at the gym, Phil.”

Best Card Game Apps of 2013, Hidden Gems

You have to dig pretty deep to find some of the best games.  Just how hidden were these gems back in 2013?  They were so hidden they didn’t even exist!  But if they didn’t exist back in 2013, how did they make it onto a “Top Card Games for 2013” list?  The only possible explanation is that the AI in the game is so smart that it created a time machine to go back in time and promote itself!  Wow!  Amazing!

Super Sevens

Maybe “The Merciless” AI should change its name to “The Master of Space and Time”?  If you couldn’t beat it in 2013, just think how much smarter it is in 2015!

Back in 2013, Simple Sevens recently just added a new “Super Button” the other day.  (Uh… this time warp stuff is getting very confusing…)  Anyways, try out the new button to sample some of the cool features of Super Sevens!

Super Sevens for Android Update – Amazon Coins

(04/02/15 – UPDATE:  This promotion is now over.  You will no longer receive 60 Amazon Coins for downloading Super Sevens on the Amazon Appstore.  Thank you to the one person who bought it during this promotional period.  Did you like it?  Was it fun?  Did you tell all of your friends and family members about how awesome it is?  I guess your family doesn’t value your opinions.  That’s ok, thank you for trying.  It might just be that your family is more interested in “Hearts” than “Sevens”.  If that’s the case, you should totally let them know that there’s a new card game by ThumbSnail Studios out on the Amazon Appstore called “Super Hearts:  Double Deck Cancellation Chaos”.  It’s really fun, and I’m sure everyone you know will like it.  Hopefully they’ll listen to you this time.)

Super Sevens for Android on the Amazon Appstore now rewards you with 60 Amazon Coins when you buy it!  Each Amazon Coin is worth $0.01 when making purchases through the Amazon Appstore.  Click here for more details on Amazon Coins.

Super Sevens for Android Title

Note the new Achievement Button on the title screen!

Some of the Achievements to obtain in Super Sevens. (Oh yeah, I owned “The Casuals” in Double Deck mode.)

Super Sevens Dealt onto the App Store

Super Sevens by Jeffrey Derrenberger (ThumbSnail Studios) is now available for download on the App Store for $1.99!

Download Super Sevens on the App Store
“Sevens” was my absolute favorite card game as a kid.  Whether grandparent or parent or aunt or uncle or ambushed mail delivery person, I wanted you to join me in a game of “Sevens”.  It was a fun and simple game that was nonetheless very exciting for a young child.

Super Sevens not only includes that classic card game but also expands on it by offering a vast array of choices and challenges:

-Play with up to 10 different suits

Super Sevens - 10 Different, Colorful Suits
-Play against 7 unique computer opponents:

The Giver
The Friendly
The Sincere
The Casual
The Determined
The Obnoxious
The Merciless

-Use a double deck to face a completely different strategy:

Super Sevens - Double Deck
-Fully customize your game type (or opt for a random selection!):

Number of Suits:  2 – 10
Midpoint Card:  2 – 10
Number of Players:  2 – 10

-Perhaps you can defeat The Merciless in a single game.  But can you outlast them for several rounds of Hearts-Style Sevens?

Super Sevens - Hearts-Style Mode
DEVICE SPECIFICS:

Requires at least iOS 5.1.1; thus, Super Sevens runs on any iPad, any iPhone 3GS or newer, and any 3rd generation iPod Touch or newer
