This game has the card games from the 2004 edition - and more. The 2004 edition was a great family title and this version builds on that one (with no significant change in graphics - but they are fine anyway), with the number of solitaire games in particular being increased. So, a great game got better! Also, unlike the 2004 version, this game, once installed, will run straight from the hard drive without the game disc in the drive. And, if you have a widescreen monitor and are wondering whether the game will look ok when stretched to fit the wider ratio - well, the game fills the whole screen (full screen mode) and stretching is not noticeable or off-putting. You can (as before) choose to play the game in a smaller window on your desktop, if you wish.

The games:

Blackjack
Bridge
Canasta
Crazy Eights
Cribbage
Euchre
Gin
Go Fish
Hearts
Memory match
Miami Solitaire - 55 mini solitaire games themed around a Miami backdrop / story
Old Maid
Pinochle

When I installed this game, it started by asking me if I wanted to install unchecked material, I ticked yes.
It then installed Smile before it installed Hoyle.
The Smile messed up my internet by installing Bing which I did not want, so I had to uninstall the whole thing and restore my original internet.
I have not reinstalled Hoyle because I do not know how to avoid this happening again

SO disappointing as I love Hoyle Card Games - had them years ago, got lost in move - & thought it would be good to update. Cannot get it to install - when you do what it says on the instruction sheet, up pops a window titled "Burn a disc", and it asks how you want to use this disc. You have to tick one of two boxes - but obviously none of this is relevant - you don't want to burn the disc. Too late to return it I think, time's been short recently, so.....

Very disappointing. I was looking for some simple games to teach my son, such as Whist, if it is there i have not found it. It was very much geared to gambling games with various types of poker and blackjack. Not of any interest to me or my son. As for 150+ games.... they must be hidden in a deep dark corner some where. I did not find it very user friendly as with some of the games you could only close the program and go back in if you wanted to change game.... no return to main menu ! I did have to use mute all the time as the music is very annoying.
I am still looking for good software that offers various whist games.

This was purchased to replace a program disk that has deteriorated to the degree that the program disk had split. It is primarily used by my wife to play Cribbage which she has found most useful in practice for her Cribbage league. It is an excellent program for her and we have found that Hoyle Card Games is an ideal practice medium for her. In short an excellent program at a very reasonable price.

Unable to hear the caractures voices due to the high volumne of music blaring all the way through the disc and unable to turn it down. Other copies of earlier editions were not to bad but this one was terrible. My rating is -1000
