    I always liked video poker and video blackjack. They both offer card-play entertainment  for some quick fun. I never took the gambling part seriously, so in my case, its always been possible to walk away with funds in hand when the games would end at a casino. My love of these games inspired me to create my own versions as an alternative to real casinos or online gambling with money. I haven't done online gambling. The Android or iOS game experience presented here is good. That's why I've shared them with you. Both are mobile apps that don't involve real wagering. That is, you don't bet any real money so they are suitable for most ages. The rules for Video Poker Jacks or Better could not be easier but they take some studying to master. Out of the fifty-two card deck you draw five cards from which you try to make the best combinations. Two Jacks, two Queens, two Kings, or two Aces return one to five credits depending on how many coins you've wagered. Nine combinations of cards with the point allocations are at the top of the game screen: Royal Flush: Ten, Jack, Queen, King, Ace of the same suit. Full House: three of a kind together with two of a kind  Flush: five cards of the same suit Straight: five consecutive cards, for example: six, seven, eight, nine, and ten of any suit in any order on the screen. Would you rather work with two cards instead of five? Step over to Blackjack 21 AA. Get as close as you can to twenty-one without going past 21. Caution. You are playing against an AI dealer so beware. Take a look and listen... Good luck! Blackjack 21 AA and Video Poker Jacks or Better. Android or iOS.

    As I've previously written, I joined Literacy Volunteers of America to help adults learn to read when I was an undergraduate at Rutgers University. See Spelling Runners Literacy: Driving A Game App. Sadly, not much in the USA literacy universe has changed since my university days. In Boston, Dr. Jim O'Connell stated in a March 2, 2023 NBC News video profile that 25% of the homeless men he treats on the streets of Beantown can't read or write. My home base of operation is the Greater Philadelphia, PA region. Achieve Now, a City of Brotherly Love organization is committed to "helping Philadelphia families battle systemic inequities. They see literacy as a social justice issue." According to Achieve Now, "22 percent of Philadelphians aged 16 and older lack the most basic literacy skills. 52% of Philadelphia's adults are functionally illiterate, and 67% are low-literate, reading at a sixth- to eighth-grade level. Almost 40% of adult Philadelphians struggle to fill out a job application, to read doctors’ instructions on their medicines, and to help with their children’s homework." Statistics don't lie. Achieve Now also states that "Philadelphia ranks 92nd out of the 100 largest U.S. cities in educational attainment. 17.4% of adult Philadelphians—an estimated 225,000—do not have a high school diploma, compared to 10.5 percent in Pennsylvania at large." When I was in the third grade, I was lucky because comic books and books were always in the home. Even though I was a rambunctious kid, my third grade reading level was that of a fifth or sixth grader. This is why when you take a look at several of our apps, word game or people name games are positioned center stage. I'm not naive enough to think that a software application can cure illiteracy, but working or playing with words can benefit those who want to move forward. In putting together the Word Sprinters game, another developer on my team helped me pack almost 500 words into the mix. I wanted the words to appear faster than my own app code would allow. The co-developer did some of the heavy coding changes, and I researched which words would make the final cut. I personally selected three, four, five, six, seven, and eight letter words popping them into the game mix. You'll see in this short 16 second video how the gameplay gets you physically involved. Someone you know might gain more confidence by using this app (with a dictionary too) but I doubt that will be needed. Word Sprinters was formerly called Spelling Runners

  • 0 Play With Your Inventions Anytime

    Sometimes a name can be misleading. The Black History Inventors Quiz is a trivia game. What else is it? It's three total games to enjoy, plus a drawing design tool to sketch your own invention! Next we add a long list of inventors with descriptions of their work, and you have a complete resource to discover. Here's what one user had to say (who wanted to remain anonymous) about this Android app. The review is posted on the Black History Inventors Quiz Google Play page: "Originally download the quiz for fun and ended up liking this a lot. The quiz actually ended up including mini games nd they are a great way to pass time in between classes but what I enjoyed most was the built in encyclopedia of feats and inventions by black inventors and it also had a little info about the inventors themselves. I was kind of surprised how many answers I didn't know starting off but my memory was certainly jogged! I can see how this app can serve a huge purpose in the lives on students especially the younger ones since they would enjoy the mini games much more than I would. That being said this app is a great resource for all ages!" Watch this then grab the app:  More about The Black History Inventors Quiz
