App description: If youve ever heard of something called a computer, youve 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!

Heres an example:

Youre feeling smug as you sit in first place. A five of spades is led. You confidently play your jack of spades, thinking youre 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! The game where even a six of spades can doom you for 26 points in a single trick...

I've never heard of Hearts. Also, ' is a really cool punctuation.

Seems to be a Touch Arcade issue. The apostrophes and quotation marks show up on the App Store itself.

Also, you might want to study up on the use of articles with count and noncount nouns.
