I can't stop playing Pocket Card Jockey, the 3DS Solitaire horse-racing game

Watch on YouTube | Subscribe to Polygon on YouTube

Pocket Card Jockey is a game about playing Solitaire to make race horses go fast, a cocktail which is absolutely inscrutable, punishing and potentially even more difficult than actual horse racing. Also, I absolutely cannot stop playing it. It's got some sticky hooks — which you'd expect, considering it was made by Pokémon series developer Game Freak — and a surprising amount of skill and strategy to it as well. Also, you can adopt a horse named Fire Boy, which Nick and I do in the video posted above. Godspeed, Fire Boy.
