CNET Editors' review
DreamQuest's 100% Free Rummy Board Game for Windows is a simple way to play and learn Rummy, the classic card game. With a fantastic tutorial and excellent gameplay, this is a great choice for card players of any skill level.
The program's interface immediately made us comfortable, even though we'd never played Rummy before. It has a professional layout, albeit slightly cartoonish, yet the effect was fun and not distracting. The onscreen tutorial was great. This extension of the Help file taught us the rules and strategy of the game, such as melding a hand, runs, and what happens with the dreaded Deadwood. Gameplay is customizable, starting with five different versions of Rummy. You also have the ability to choose between 24 variously skilled opponents. We were pleased to be able to slip into a game of Rummy within minutes and even compete seriously, despite a lack of skill and practice. Gameplay is a simple click-and-drag affair, and the opponents keep you on your toes with challenging, humanlike idiosyncrasies. The program has another great feature: a Hint button that doles out advice whenever you're stuck during a game. Thanks to its handy tutorials, various skill levels, and easy play, we could see any card fan loving this game.
We highly recommend this program for Rummy fans or anyone thinking of becoming one.

Version: 100% Free Rummy 7.07
Wonder why this is such a large download for such a simple game?
That's because it COMES WITH A TOOLBAR THAT HAS TO BE ACCEPTED to get the game. If you decline, as I did, you will find a browser opens automatically, directed to their website.
I ran a cleaner once after it supposedly removed itself, and found some spyware that came with the install program. Ran it again and it detected 2 registry items connected with it- this is all after cancelling, and having run only the first step of the installer. I'm awaiting the results of a full spyware scan now. So far it has detected 6 items that are undoubtedly caused by this installer download.
Skip this POS, and save yourself some trouble.
"the product itself is wonderful...BUT..."
Version: 100% Free Rummy 7.02
the game is perfect! quite enjoyable!! which is why the 'cons' listed below are such a disappointment
the completely and totally false statements regarding this being "100% free," and there being "no limitations," are an utter disappointment!!!!!
