Politicards Solitaire 2012 Debuts for Election SeasonHollywood and Politics Mash Up in Classic Card Game for the PC (July 03, 2012)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/03/12 -- Solitaire is arguably the most widely played game and Silver Creek Entertainment now brings to the Casual Games market the latest and most exciting version based on POLITICARDS, the playing cards that have enjoyed 40 years of sales success as one of the leading political collectibles in the marketplace. http://www.politicardssolitaire.com
The brainchild of Politicards, award-winning caricaturist and creative design genius Peter Green, comments, "Politicards has always been non-partisan humor meant to have a little fun by poking a little fun. These guys are part of our lives, for better or worse. Let the games begin."
Green's newest set of Politicards featured in the game includes hilarious full-color illustrations from both sides of the political spectrum. The deck includes such cards as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee and Sarah Palin. It also features unexpected additions to the landscape like George Clooney and Bill Maher. In the Political Solitaire 2012 game, users can choose from a selection of avatars featuring Jon Stewart, Dennis Miller, an elephant or a donkey.
The game of politics, along with the world of Hollywood, has put a whole new face on the classic card game. Each of the 52 character cards has a personality depicted in a classic Hollywood movie with a related movie quote that was specifically chosen for that personality. Users can roll their mouse over the cards to see an enlarged card with the quote. The rendition of "Stars and Stripes Forever" that plays and the fireworks that explode as you successfully place all your cards down make this timeless game even more fun.
Politicards Solitaire features gorgeous graphics and 3D effects and lets users compare best scores with players from all over the world. Users can also enjoy achievement challenges that take the experience from just a single round of Solitaire to endless fun.
