Today's post is a tribute to nostalgic childhood memories. One of my favorite card games growing up was called Spit. In this strangely named game, you did not spit at each other as implied, but race to finish your stack of playing cards before your opponent. It was simple enough for a child to do as you merely had to slam down the card that comes in line directly before or after the one that was sitting in the played-out stack. My brother and I were as quick as lightening in shoving our cards on the stack so we could get rid of our cards and yell out "SPIT" at the end of the game! It was great fun, and we always had a stash of candy to dish out to the winner.

Imagine how amazed I was to see that Aces Speed, the other name for Spit, was available on my iPhone. How could I resist this game, especially as it is now free?  You can play your friends and family or compete against the computer in this rapid-fire card game.  Play on the same device in the race to unload all the cards in your hands! Some of the entertaining and helpful features of Aces Speed are shown below:

Rapid, resonsive, smooth game play
Family fun with a digital deck of cards
• Game Center Achievements and Leaderboards
• Single player or 2 player mode
• Variety of difficulty levels
• Tutorials provided for each game

Open the app and decide whether or not you want to play integrated with Game Center. Then you get to  choose between 1 player (1P) or 2 player (2P) mode. Set the difficulty level with the slider bar (there are five levels), and toggle the sound on or off. Most importantly, take a look at the tutorial labeled "How To Play" so you can enjoy the game completely. Trust me, it's not at all hard to play. No difficult rules or strategies. In fact, if you can count, you can play Aces Speed

I started off playing in the 1 Player mode. The game did not disappoint. I tapped the center pile of cards to start the game and off we were to the finish line. The deck at the side of your line of cards is numbered so that each time you flip one over to play, you know how many you have left.  At the end of my game I saw my score, but noticed I had not made the time bonus.  Alright then, the challenge is on! It's time to flex my fingers and get back to my childhood speed!
