Can I upgrade from Version 1 to Version 2?

If you have and unlock key for Version 1 of Hearts, Spades, Euchre or Backgammon, we have a special offer you can take advantage of. But 1st we need to talk about how things are different.

The new versions work on different principles...membership and microtransactions, sort of a buffet style purchasing of elements of the game using tokens. It doesn't use an unlock key directly as the game really isn't purchased as a whole, just the parts you want.

Your plus+ membership works across games, So it gives you access to all the multiplayer games, Euchre, Hearts, Spades and Backgammon! You can think of it less like buying a game, and more like getting a pass into a theme park. Also items that you purchase work across compatible games, so if you purchase and avatar or environment, it will show up in the other games.

We've also been adding new types of Fooms, backgrounds, decks available for version 2 games which are a hoot!

All those games can be downloaded here at

We have a special offer for folks that have unlock keys, a year of Plus+ membership (for playing online rated games and chat) as well as 1600 tokens so you can purchase the stuff that you used before, your favorite avatars, etc.

If you want to use your Unlock key to access the special offer, you can do so here:

Dont' worry about "spades" being in the link, it doesn't matter with meberships. Be sure to sign-in to that page with the sign-in name (player name) you want the membership be for. 1 name per membership, so make sure its the name you want to use as it's non transferable.
