Welcome to the Matrix.
CardGames.io is a game site focused on classic card and board games. Our goal is to make great versions of the games you already know and love in real life. We try very hard to make the games simple and easy to use, and hope you enjoy playing them as much as we enjoy making them 🙂.
Q: Why won't you add rule-variations/replayable-games/any-other-feature? It would make the game much better.
A: We get a lot of requests from people that just want one tiny little feature added to a game. What they don't realize is that if we start implementing all the suggestions we get then the games will no longer be simple. The number one praise we get is that the interface is simple and uncluttered and it's easy to play. That's very much deliberate. There is no login, no loading screens, as few options as possible. We want to keep it as simple as possible, and that means each game only has one set of rules, you can't choose variations, we try to add as few controls as possible to the screen etc. So, don't feel bad if you make a suggestion and I deny it, we deny 99% of all suggestions.
Q: Why can't I see my statistics on another computer?
A: This goes back to simplicity again. We don't want people to have to login to the site. We don't want to keep passwords in a database and be responsible for them. Your statistics are stored in your browser, we don't store them anywhere. That means that as soon as you switch browsers you won't see the same statistics.
Q: Do the computer players cheat? Are the games fixed?
A: No. In all the games the cards are dealt randomly at the start, and the computer players make their decisions based only on knowledge of their own hands, and knowledge of what has been played. Basically they use the same information as a human player would have available to them.
Q: I saw an offensive ad. Can you remove it?
A: If you see an ad that is offensive to you then please contact us and we'll try our best to block it. Due to the way advertising works we can't always immediately find the ads to block them, but if you send a screenshot of it, or you remember any text on it or a url then there's a much higher chance that we can find it and block it.
Q: I have an amazing business proposal for you!
A: Thank you for your interest. You're free to send it our way, but do note that we are a fairly insular company and aren't very receptive to unsolicited business offers. Please read this answer on the longer FAQ page before contacting us.
Q: I have a question that wasn't covered in this FAQ!
A: That technically isn't a question, but that aside: these questions are the most commonly asked ones, but for a few more questions that commonly pop up in our support email you may find your answer on this page, which covers things like what the green checkmarks mean, if we will add specific games or options, and so on and so forth.
You can always contact us with any questions, suggestions or issues. It's generally best to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, but you can also find us on these sites:
