Description from the packaging.

Ultimate Cards is a fast moving card game that offers six different games for players of varying skills and abilities. With Ultimate Cards you can play with or against any of a possible 12 computer players.

Can't find enough people for a card game? Use on-screen menus to choose your game and opponents. If you feel lucky, select to play expert computer players such as Uncle Charlie and Einstein. If you are just beginning, you may want to play Aunt Millie first- she's only average.

Try a new strategy, refine your weak points, take risks - Ultimate Cards is a great way to practice. Don't worry if things get tough... you can always use the cheat option to get back into the game. If you're still stuck you can even ask a computer advisor what to do.
