OpenCards / Home


Welcome to the OpenCards wiki. Here you can find information about the game and it's development. The code for this game is licensed under the GPL, so go ahead and feel free to make changes, just don't forget to post back!

This game was created due to lack of (decent) card games for Android tablets.

I used NetBeans with the NbAndroid plug-in to develop this; you are free to use whatever editor you wish.

If there's one, see if you can add more information to the report already there, otherwise open a new report. I can't promise you that I can fix the bug or implement the feature, but I will at least have a go at it.


The first revision of this game was posted on the Android market on the 18th of October 2011. The first revision of the source code was pushed shortly afterwards into this repository.
