9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Joyce on January 28, 2003
I bought this Gin Rummy game to replace one from Radio Shack that I wore out, and they don't make anymore. This game has only a few different hands, and repeats them over and over. It does not take long to memorize them and know exactly what the score will be and who will win each hand. Also, it sometimes will not let you win when you have a winning hand. For example, in one hand I had 4 10's and 8,9,J,Q&K OF the same suit. It would not allow the 10 of that suit to be played in the straight. Itstead, it kept it with the other 3 10's to make a set of 4. Therefore, the 8 & 9 were not playable when it should have been. Also, I would prefer to keep the sound off all them time, but this game requires you to turn the sound off each time a new game begins.

I have another Gin Rummy handheld electronic game by Radica. My older game is much less complex and I find the same games/deals repeating. This new Gin Rummy by Excalibur has more options and I have yet to find games repeating on me. My only complaint is that the screen is sometimes hard to read in lower light (and differentiate between some of the suit indicators). Overall, I am very pleased.

i got this game for my birthday and spent all day trying to figure it out. the game is vastly different from the one i am used to and even the level 1 is hard, with the computer winning 95% of the time. takes all the fun out. not to mention, that not all the buttons always work. what a bust. had my husband read the reviews, he would not have spent good money on this game. i'll go back to solitaire.

I bought a used one because I was hesitant to spend too much incase it turned out terrible..

As someone who simply *loves* to play Rummy (or any card game), I must say this was a great buy! You see a few solitaire handheld games around but rummy handheld games are quite rare and so I was really hoping this would be worth the purchase - and I'm happy to say it was!

Pros -
1. Really easy to use - just go to the card and click on it type of thing.

2. Sound can be turned off (thank goodness).

3. You win some, you lose some - unlike other handheld card games that get stuck in a pattern after awhile.

4. A set of batteries lasts surprisingly long.

5. Auto shut-off AND continues from where you left off.

6. Screen is clear and sharp.

7.Fits nicely into my hand - comfortable to use.

Cons -
1. Please do NOT purchase this for people who can't see so well. You get used to the shapes of the suits after a game or two (personally I had no problem at all) and although that doesn't have anything to do with the quality of the screen, again, do NOT buy this for people who don't see too well - my grandma simply CANNOT play this game - it's too difficult for her to see the suits.

2. It doesn't 'talk'... Was expecting some "well done!"/"you won!" or something but it just beeps and boops.. haha oh well.

Leave a comment if you have any specific questions or if you know of any other nice handheld card game : ) : )
