Play the classic card game Hearts online.
Hearts is an "evasion-type" trick-taking playing card game for four players, in this case you against three computer opponents. It is an evasion type game in that you try not to win any points. Points are scored against you if you win cards of the Hearts suit or if you win the Queen of Spades. An interesting wrinkle though, is that if you win all the points in a hand, all other players are awarded those points and you score zero. Once one player reaches 100 points, the game is over and the player with the least points wins.
Those long time visitors to dkm may remember the "CardSharp" suite of card games. Well, they are now being rewritten to work well online (including tablets). Hearts is first off the rank with others to follow.
