Card games

I'm not much of a card game player but I admit I play ever once in a while or when I'm bored. Card games are very relaxing, very strategic and doesn't make too much noise unlike other games. Do you guys play card games on the iPhone/iPod Touch? If so, what game?

I'll usually play solitaire as a just before bed-time game. As you mentioned its very relaxing and quiet.

A link to Fairway Solitaire. I'll play this at lunch, it has a great theme to go alone with its game.

Vote for Fairway Solitaire. A free game with IAP, but I think that we do not want to use this function to walkthrough the game.

Phase 10

All of these are strategic card games that I dominate at

Card Shark Collection is a must if you like card games.

Ascension is one of my most played online card games.

Dungeon Solitaire is a lot of fun - Necronomicon Redux is very similar with a Lovecraft theme...

Iso Cards is pretty neat if you have an iPad and iPhones/iPods, but the IAP for the games is spendy.

I recently tried out PiPlay's Solitaire at http://piplay.com/solitaire/index.html They have 34 free games and are working on more features. They have a facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/piplay.

I second Fairway Solitaire one of my favs and worth purchasing the full version. Also recommend Klondike Solitaire by Finger Arts it's a great free well designed solitaire app

Just curious but what are the biggest features (as well as weak points) in both games?

I am really surprised that nobody mentioned "Carcassonne", "Ascension" (this except drelbs) and "Nightfall" yet. These are the best card/board games on iOS. Another very good strategic board/card game is "Hero Mages".

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

What makes them "the best" though? Not trying to be analytical...I'm just curious. I like seeing what games are all about and comparing games with each other.
