Championship Gin Pro for Windows PDAs, Cell Phones

DreamQuest Software Releases Championship Gin Pro for Windows, PDAs, and Cell Phones

Skill and concentration are coupled with tense anticipation in this silent race to the finish.

Boulder, CO (August 27, 2003)… DreamQuest Software today announces its newest game, Championship Gin Pro. The company has created the first cross-platform card games, allowing gamers to play on and against a variety of devices including Windows PCs, Palm OS and Pocket PC handhelds, and even Symbian OS cell phones.

A new addition to the Championship-series card games by DreamQuest Software, Championship Gin Pro offers a fun and exciting gaming experience for casual and hardcore fans alike. The player is in control, choosing from popular variations, five difficulty levels, and hundreds of game options. One can challenge the playful computer champions, engage friends over a local network, or even enjoy competing and chatting online in DreamQuest Software's free Internet lobby anytime, anywhere, and on any device. For more information or a free 10-game trial version, visit http://dq.com/gin.html.

"Gin's heart-pounding anticipation will attract players old and new," said Christopher Williamson, DreamQuest Software's president and CEO. "At its most basic, it is a tense, silent race. Skill and concentration are necessary to be the first to layoff your cards so your opponent gets stuck with all the penalty points! Our signature cross-platform technology even allows on-the-go business travelers to join in on the fun from their PDA or cell phone."

The interactive tutorial and practice options will show Gin novices how to play. Seasoned pros can try to corner one of the eight animated opponents, who use advanced strategies with a humorous twist. The five skill levels provide everything from a relaxing game to challenging tournament-style action. Each game is made distinctive by selecting from over 200 colorful deck and table combinations, enhanced by dozens of player taunts, game sounds, and soundtracks. Custom skins allow players to share their favorite themes and characters with their friends.
