Card Game 1001 Description:  

Welcome to 1001 - a refreshingly new and exciting card game for Palm devices. The game is a derivate of the game "Thousand", which is very popular in Russia and Poland. It is easy to learn, but offers enough diversion to be fun and thrilling for a long time.

1001 is a three-player game with a 20-card pack. The aim is to win tricks containing valuable cards. There are 120 card points in the pack altogether and a player who holds both the king and the queen of a suit (a pair or marriage) can obtain additional points by declaring them. Scores are rounded to the nearest 10. If the bidder wins, he scores all the points he takes; if he loses he scores minus his bid. The winner is the first player whose cumulative score becomes more than 1000.

The game has all it takes for an addictive gameplay: fast paced and varied action, nice and colourful graphics, easily readable cards and controls plus score table. The apprearance is adjustable in wide range, you can choose different card backs, names and cartoon faces for your opponent players (can be switched off). There are detailed rule explanations inside the game.

Only High Res (320x320) devices are supported.
