I absolutely love this game! I played in many times before I realized I could go back and play the same games and get all the trophies. Now I have completed it 22 times with every trophy for every game!! I love it and would love to see Picket Fences 2. Maybe some bonus cards could be added to block "lose a turn" or "lose a set". The game characters make me so mad some times!! haha I would love to know if there are any plans for #2 or a very similiar game? Thanks for a great addiction!!

This is a fun twist on playing cards! I enjoy going back and trying to beat my scores. Each new build has a differnet twist - taking your neighbors items, sharing items, blocking them from play, etc. My ne teeny complaint is once you choose a card, if you picked the wrong one, you cannot change your midn. Lots of fun for hours.

I don't usually go for card games, but this one got me hooked. It's nothing like the average card game.

Whenever I'm tired in the evening and want something to do while I listen to the radio, this is the game I go to. I never seem to get tired of playing it and I've had it for a few years. It is a great value as you will play it over and over.

I have played this game over & over & over again. I have beat it, achieving expert badges, at least 20 times on standard difficulty, but still never get bored with it. It is very original. I agree with other reviewers on here that you will end up hating the other computer players at times, but it makes the game that much more fun to play. By far one of the best games for the money I have found. You only have room for 10 characters so I have had to delete many a profiles in order to start from the begining again. I have just started playing on easy mode, and to be honest with you, I am finding it more difficult to beat this way. Definately challenging and worth the time and money. I only wish they would come out with a second one. A++++++

A great new card game where you have to compete with four other players to equip a house by collecting sets of cards. When you have won enough games you unlock the next game which is a different set of things to collect with a slight twist on the way to play. You win bonus cards which you use to either help your own collecting or to deter your opponents. These opponents become very challenging to beat and I tried to work out their characters based on how they played against me..... all I can say is, beware of Jackie, she is a bit psycho!!

i LOVE this game. what a cool twist on a card game. i actually found myself talking to the computer players. taunting them. telling them i hated them. i had to laugh at myself. picking cards to try to decorate my condo b/f they did was innovative. and i so wanted to unlock the other places-didn't get it done in the hr trial-but I WILL BUY THIS GAME, AND I WILL PREVAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What can I say except that I LOVE this game and have been waiting not so patiently for a sequel to come out. I enjoy this game so much that it prompted me to write my first review ever! I also appreciate how we have the option to speed up the turns. I don't think I would like it as much if I had to wait for slow deals while it went through everyone's turn. BUT, since that isn't the case I have nothing bad to say about this game. Well...except for that they haven't come out with a sequel yet!!! argh!! I can't count the times I've played it, trying for perfection on every level. I do wish there were more levels of course, but again, I love the game so much I don't even want to complain about THAT lol. I think this game is so unique that if more people knew about it, it would become a classic, like the old DOS sim city. If they came out with a sequel, I would buy it without even looking at the reviews. I wouldn't be able to buy it fast enough, in fact! Thank you picket fence creators and thank you gamehouse.

This is a very original and highly addictive game! Each level uses different items, and have different goals and play styles. The developers have come up with a very intuitive and effective AI for the computer generated opponents. It actually seems as if you are playing another person, not a computer. I hope there is a sequel in the works! Excellent!! 5 Stars!!

I loved this game so much I bought it. Now I need a game #2 . This has to be the best game ever.

I keep coming back & redownloading this game. It's easy but challenging & a lot of fun. It's also different every time I play, which makes for great replay. The strategy you have to use to win is simple enough for a child, but challenging enough for me at 42. I really enjoy this game?

I love this game! I hope gamehouse comes out with more like this. I like that I can relax yet think when playing this game. I'm addicted! Thank you for this game :)

You will come to hate and try to destroy Henry, Joyce and Jackie. Especially Jackie!

That is a game which can play at your own pace. It can be very challenging when you want to achieve all the medal.

Cannot keep my hands off this game, its absolutely addictive and the need to beat the other players is overwhelming. Having them take sets off you, or making you lose turn after turn after turn because you're leading may lead to some harsh words, but its so thoroughly enjoyable its difficult to let a day go by without some more punishment. PLEASE LETS HAVE MORE GAMES LIKE THIS

I'm not too big on card games but this one is a far cry from the usual card games I've played. Play against 3 computer controlled players to collect "sets" of cards. It's fun, addictive and challenging. There are card strategy and bonus card plays involved. I highly recommend this game for those who are usually bored with card games!
