Who feels like doing math when playing card games? Games that include score-keeping, especially complicated or high scoring games, can sometimes go unplayed because of a lack of interest in any of the players to keep score. Even with a calculator handy, score-keeping can still be a time-consuming process that adds boring breaks between rounds.
I was about to sit down and play Rook yesterday (a card game that involves score-keeping) and decided to see if there was “an app for that” on the iPad. I came across Score This by Roxo Designs.
I was searching for a specific Rook scoring app, but I found one that can be customized to play for most card games with scoring. Score This has a list of options to pick before starting a game: if the higher or lowest is the winner, starting score, whether or not the game includes bidding (like Rook), and the players. Score This also keeps track of player stats (percentage of wins).
Score This goes for $1.99 for the iPad. No iPhone version exists yet.
