I’m not good at Blow The Cards. The entertainment for others around me wasn’t found in the game itself. It came from watching me try to play the game. There’s something hilarious about watching someone turn blue in the face while they try to blow into the microphone. As soon as I find someone else to play this game so that I can sit back and laugh, I’ll let you know just how funny it is. Right now, I’m just going off of the reaction of people around me.
Blow The Cards is played by tapping the screen to indicate which direction you want the cards to go and then blowing into your iPhone’s microphone. Blowing harder apparently doesn’t mean the cards will move faster. My child thought I was going into labor. I felt ridiculous. There’s an ambient wind that blows in different directions, so you have to keep changing the direction that you’re aiming the card to match the wind. Even though I knew this, it still didn’t make any difference in my ability to play the game decently. Your goal is to blow all 52 cards off the deck as fast as you can. I made it through 10 before I had to clean my phone.
There are two different modes of play. There’s single or versus. The versus mode doesn’t connect to Game Center. It’s one of those apps that you play with actual people around you. That’s right. It encourages socializing. I know that’s a scary concept for some of you, but I promise that it can be done. Personally, I’d rather simply limit the number of people who witness me blowing spittle all over my phone.
