Pokemon Go

Pokemon go is derived from the famous Pokemon characters that originally came as cartoon characters. This game received the best mobile games award for this year because of its immense popularity. The main reason it created quite a stir within the gaming community was because of its influence in bringing together the animated world and the Real Word environment through Augmented Reality. The concept of this game is to find Pokémon characters that are hidden in your real world by moving yourself towards the Pokémon hidden somewhere in your real environment. For example, if you get into the augmented reality landscape of the game you might find the Pokemon at your favorite Restaurant near your home or even near the coffee shop at your office. Google awarded Pokémon GO the title of Best Game 2016.

Super Mario Run

Super Mario run is the latest version of Mario video game. This version is similar to the video game version that many of us used to play in our childhood days. The game was launched for iOS users in Dec 2016. After a 99-day exclusivity period with APPle, the game was launched for Android this year March. The objective of the game is to rescue the abducted Princess Peach from Bowser’s clutches. You will have to travel through several plains, caverns, ghost houses, airships, castles, and more to achieve your mission. Unlike the traditional Mario game, you don’t get to control the speed or direction of Mario’s movement, you tap the screen to jump. If you hold after tapping, Mario jumps a little higher. On many layers, the game takes us into a nostalgic trip. If you are one who doesn’t mind playing a game that can be described as a throwback to the bygone era, then this one’s for you.

2.Identify your opponents

Every rummy player has a unique quality, i.e., every rummy player has a different style of playing rummy. It is their playing style that decides their chances in a rummy game. As a professional rummy player, it is vital that you know the type of players you’re dealing with.

But players who are pessimistic have very little chance.
