Choose from two exciting fast-paced games in this two-game app from Appracatappra! Build and win poker hands as quickly as possible against your opponents from the swirling decks in Cascading Cards, or test your word skills at lightning speeds before the letter tiles are swallowed up in the whirlpools of Cascading Words.

Play up to 4 players or against the AI’s in either game for winning scores and achievements. Control the length of the games and the intelligence levels of the AI’s as you learn to master CASCADES!

App Includes two games in one:

Game 1: CASCADING CARDS: A fast-paced card game where all players play at once, scrambling for cascading cards before they disappear from view in order to build five-card poker hands and score as high and as often as possible! Earn points for each hand you decide to score, based on standard poker hand rankings that include wild cards!

Game 2: CASCADING WORDS: A fast-paced word game where all players play at once, scrambling for cascading letter tiles before they disappear from view in order to build words and scores as high and as often as possible! As in other select word games from Appracatappra, use this unique blend of crossing words with the suits in a deck of cards to achieve bonus points that can double, triple, or even five-times your word score!¬¬ Poker suit bonus combinations and point distributions are listed in the in-app help menus.
