    Gameloft S.A.

    Who doesn't love UNO? I mean seriously, who doesn't? It's a great time killer that you can take with you anywhere and almost everyone knows how to play it. From the cute girl sitting by herself at the coffee shop to the homeless guy on the street corner. A game is there if you've got the cards -- or the app. Might wanna try playing with the cute girl in the coffee shop though.

    Phase 10 is a different but fun card game. Try and score points as you go through different phases of the game against the computer opponents. Don't worry if you don't know how to play, the Help section tells you all the rules. Still, it's a tough game to try and win against three other people. But that's half the fun, isn't it?

    Magic 2013

    Wizards of the Coast LLC

    I'll start off by saying I don't play Magic the Gathering. I never have. I don't understand it. I booted up Magic 2013 and was lost from the get go. Lucky for me, they have a really good tutorial for beginners. They'll even change the difficulty for newbies to help you out. After playing for a long time, I am now a Magic the Gathering grand master and I'm going to take my skills on the road and beat everyone in tournaments around the world. Just warning you ahead of time.
