Description from the packaging.

With Card Sharks you can shuffle the games and the players!

O.K. So you've got the itch to play some cards. Maybe a little poker, a little blackjack or even a game of hearts. But all of your card-playing cronies are out of town. And you definitely don't want to play another boring computer card game, complete with the proverbial invisible dealer. You want to see your opponent eye-to-eye.

What are you gonna do, bunky? Fly to Vegas?

Relax. Save your dough. Invite the Card Sharks over.

Accolade's Card Sharks is more than just three challenging card games on one disk. Card Sharks is the first interactive computer card game that allows you to play with and against articulate, animated characters. No kidding. Just boot up Card Sharks and you're sitting across the felt from some vibrant, funny people with loads of personality.

And they won't stink up the joint with stogies.

Just call up Luigi, Milton and Lady Vanderbilt for a friendly game of hearts. They'll even let you keep score. Or maybe you'd like to get into some rapid-fire blackjack. Sam the dealer enjoys a good game of 21 almost as much as he enjoys a good joke. And when was the last time you played poker with the world's most powerful leaders? Card Sharks comes loaded with three varieties of poker and three verbose politicians.

Accolade's Card Sharks. When your friends fold, the Sharks are ready to play.

  • Card Sharks is real cards with gutsy gamblers and a hot casino pace. But don't cash in yet. You can tune-up against "average" players at a slower level.
  • Card Sharks lets you select the characters you'd like to play with. Each has their own distinct personality and card playing ability.
  • Looks like a friendly game of hearts, eh? Guess again, Luigi, Lady Vanderbilt and Milton take their cards seriously. Win, or suffer their insults.
  • Don't they look familiar? Rub elbows with world leaders in each game as you play three kinds of poker: Seven card stud, Five card draw or Texas Hold'Em.
