I just want to report that this morning the new Bridge Game is worse than ever.  For the past few days, I've been able to play when I can remember that to bid Hearts I actually have to put the arrow on Clubs.  This morning I attemted to bid 2 Hearts, put the arrow on 2 clubs and guess what registered?  3 No Trump!  This is not acceptable.

I agree.  It was one of my favorites.  How could they ruin a good game?

Try going to Arkadium directly: support@arkadiumsupport.zendesk.com. While they haven't solved the problems, they have responded directly to me.

I am still unable to play Mahjongg Dimensions or even Dark Dimensions. Both games load slow and the response when you hit the icons is a slow motion explosion. You also must hit the icons multiple ttimes before it responds. Definitely I am not able to do the levels during the allotted time. I contacted AARP about this a week or two ago and was told that they would look into it. Apparently it was not fixed. You sure you can't go back to the old flash drive?

I wonder if the senior executive of AARP has any idea what a mess transitioning the games to the new programs has become! I can't believe in this day and age that such terrible alternatives would be offerred for long-standing and enjoyable games. AARP has effectively eliminated its reputation for providing games for older people to play. Perhaps the senior executive will only find out when the bottom drops out of subscription income and reduced visits to the games (hence loss in advertising revenue). I think Arkadium, which holds the rights to all the old games, must take some blame as well. They've probably put them in storage, and made a fortune by selling new games. The mistake they made was that the games were made for five year olds, not adults, so its definitely a lose-lose-lose situation for  AARP, Arkadiu,, and us.

Check the software you have. Spider solitaire and several others came built-in my Microsoft software for free. My scores are tracked.
