The Good

Though the game is a traditional card game, there is sophistication to it with the use of Victorian styling, the hardwood and brass look. The presentation is flawless and the game play is a classic one. It is a great addition to those interested in serious card games. It is a great addition to the Aces Hearts and the Aces Spades games from the same developer. The best part is that it is possible to win against the computer in this game. The level of play can be changed as well as the character picture. The graphics are excellent as well.

The Bad

The only bad part is that it can keep you up really late into the night playing, if you consider that a fault.

Summary

Aces Gin Rummy is an awesome card game from Concrete Software Inc. that makes all other card games appearing to be just like deadwood. It is a fun and portable way to enjoy playing gin with a realistic play action for cards, great sound effects and very good prompts along with good score keeping.
