What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Phase 10: World Tour is a card game for iOS and Android devices. In the vein of Uno and rummy, it has you trying to get rid of all your cards by putting them in the appropriate piles. As such, it has no objectionable content. Even when you play against another person online, there's no communication between players. Players use in-game currency to play, which can be earned by playing or watching ads, or purchased in packs from the in-game store with real money. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared, and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

In PHASE 10: WORLD TOUR, you play a rummy- and Uno-esque card game in which you have to get rid of all your cards. To do this, you have to put them in the right pile as dictated by the computer: four of the same color, three in a row, and so on. Be the first to empty your pile and you win ... unless, of course, it's a two-round match, in which case you move on to the next round.

Is it any good?

While fans of rummy and Uno will have fun with this matching game, it won't win over people who don't enjoy traditional card games. Phase 10: World Tour has you trying to get rid of all the cards you've been dealt. To do this, you have to place them in piles where they meet certain conditions, such as three of the same color, four in a row, and so on. You also get to toss a card when you finish a pile, or have to take one when you have no other choice, while special cards work as wild cards or block your opponent from taking their turn.

While card sharks may appreciate this game, people who don't like card games will find it overly complicated and even a little redundant. The same goes for people into such faster and more action-oriented card battle games as Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering. Some more mellow card players might also get frustrated with how this can be as annoyingly exact as a relative or friend you won't play cards with anymore because they only count your six in a row if the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 cards are placed in the correct order. Still, if you're someone who likes playing rummy, Uno, or similar card games, and are OK with sticklers for rules, Phase 10: World Tour should provide a nice distraction when you can't find anyone to play against.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about advertising. Phase 10: World Tour rewards you for watching ads. Do you think that it should? Do you watch the ads? Is it fair that this game is making you watch commercials?

  • When does it make sense to pay to play a free game? Would it be better to simply pay a fee, even a small one, to avoid interruptions to your game sessions?
