Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6):
Kids say (1):

Phase 10 is a great family card game, and the app is an accurate translation of the game. The game consists of creating certain melds (for example, two sets of 3 or a run of 8) during each round of play. Each player must work through all 10 phases on their own -- if somebody goes out before you reach a phase, you continue working on the same phase again the next round. The first player to finish 10 phases wins, with scores as a tie-breaker. The game is well-designed with a variety of options that can be adjusted, like table talk and card speed. Players can earn a lot of different achievements, which keeps the game exciting even though it's for one player. Multiplayer support would make an excellent addition but is not currently supported.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
