100% Free Gin

CNET Editors' review

DreamQuest's 100% Free Gin Card Game for Windows provides all the tips and features necessary to play and win the classic card game Gin. This game software's excellent opponents and tutorials make this a fantastic option for card players.

The program's interface instantly grabs your attention with its cartoonish welcoming graphics and excellent tutorial. This in-game teaching tool teaches you all the rules, from making a meld to when to knock and how to draw cards. The program provides dozens of variously talented opponents, which is a nice touch. We were able to cycle through them quickly and easily. In addition, there are five different styles of Gin to choose from. Game play is a simple matter of clicking and dragging cards to make your ideal Gin hand and virtually knocking when you think you can win. The opponents are challenging and perfectly match their advertised skill sets. The program offers a nice feature that lets you receive Hints if you're stumped. It will clue you in on which card to drop or which to pick up from the pile. Overall, this gameware makes great efforts to teach newcomers with its tutorials, but it will still challenge experts with its opponent choices and its level of play.

Like other DreamQuest game programs, 100% Free Gin Card Game is freeware.

    "BEWARE OF THIS PROGRAM -- IT CONTAINS MALWARE"

    April 11, 2014  |   By R_E_C

    Version: 100% Free Gin 7.42

    Pros

    THERE ARE NO REDEEMING QUALITIES ABOUT THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE

    Cons

    Installed it as I did, I told it NOT to install all the crapware that comes with CNET stuff. I declined everything. As I was installing, it lite up my malware and anti-virus software. I uninstalled it, but it had already installed all sorts of tracking stuff, including the YAHOO! TOOLBAR, WHICH SUCKS. I quarantined 78 PUP's and uninstalled the Yahoo toolbar.

    BEWARE --- I also reported this to CNET

    Summary

    DON'T OPEN IT OR INSTALL IT

    "What you expect"

    August 12, 2012  |   By bat-bot

    Version: 100% Free Gin 7.42

    Pros

    plays gin!

    Cons

    totally unnecessary graphics, animations, character bios, etc
    you can't really change anything to make the game less atrocious without paying for it.
    it's generally feature-bloated

    Summary

    this game might impress a young child, but probably not anyone who has seen other basic computer games since 2002. There's too many graphics, characters, etc and it feels like it ought to be a web-hosted flash game over a downloaded game.
    Overall, I found it enjoyable, once I got used to the unusual rules ["knocking", which i was never taught, and how/where to knock; no discarding your draw] and I was able to easily beat the computer.

    This might be a good intro game, but overall it's just ugly and bulky looking. I want to play quick games of gin and gin rummy, with few distractions. This game is too involved with it's self and childish, I'll be uninstalling it.
