Politicards Injects Humor and Politics Into the Classic Game of Solitaire With New iOS and Android Versions

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 8, 2012) - With the election season heating up, Politicards Solitaire (http://www.politicardssolitaire.com), brought to users by Silver Creek Entertainment, is bringing the classic political card game to mobile devices with their iOS and Android versions released today. The game is based on POLITICARDS, the playing cards that have enjoyed 40 years of sales success as one of the leading political collectibles in the marketplace.

Politicards Solitaire, now offered on mobile devices and tablets, makes this classic game an entertaining and fun experience, no matter the political stance of the players. Politicards Solitaire is now available for iPhone, iPad, Google Play, Android, Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet for $ .99 per download.

The brainchild of Politicards, award-winning caricaturist Peter Green comments, "At last! Solitaire will no longer be so solitary. Your favorite pundit or politician staring back as you build your sequence playing the game."

Green's newest set of Politicards featured in the game includes hilarious full-color illustrations from both sides of the political spectrum. The deck includes such cards as Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio. It also features unexpected additions to the Landscape like Oprah Winfrey and Donald Trump. In the Politicards Solitaire 2012 game, users can choose from a selection of Avatars featuring Jon Stewart, Dennis Miller, an Elephant or a Donkey. 

The game of Politics, along with the world of Hollywood, has put a whole new face on the classic card game for the 2012 political year. Each of the 52 character cards has a personality depicted in a classic Hollywood movie with a related and significant movie quote. Players can use a pinch gesture on the cards to see it enlarge with the quote.
