The United States Playing Card Company, the makers of Bicycle® Playing Cards, is proud to announce the launch of Jacked Up! card games, a new interactive twist on traditional playing card games. Jacked Up! card games combine traditional playing cards with a digital application that changes the rules with every hand. In the digital application the “Joker,” known as Jack, interacts with players throughout the game to twist the rules.
Each Jacked Up! card game package includes a special deck of cards, a smart phone stand, and a free app download (available for iOS and Droid phones and tablets). Scan the special cards with the free Jacked Up! Smartphone app during game play, to have Jack reveal new rules that add excitement to each game. Versions of traditional strategy games like Hearts and popular leisure games like War and Solitaire will be available.
Our Cards + Your Smartphone = New Rules in Every Hand!
Roy Gifford, VP of Marketing at The United States Playing Card Company, says “The Jacked Up! interactive card game will not only bring excitement but will elevate the level of play for playing card and digital game consumers alike.” Jacked Up! Interactive Card Games will be available in stores and online at www.bicyclecards.com on April 26, 2012.
