    I tried this. Fairly average; rules are only barely customisable (two modes for each game, and the modes aren't explained in-game). Cards are a bit too small for the wife's TV (which is mid-sized), can be hard to identify clubs vs. spades, and overall it's uncomfortable reading numbers from the cards. No recordkeeping at all, despite the ability to choose which Mii to play with; change is purely cosmetic, your Mii's face sits by your cards. Found a bug which surfaced when I finished a game of Solitaire; the "You Win" music continued to play after exiting to the menu, so the menu music was playing at the same time. Win music appears to play indefinitely. No multiplayer at all, which makes sense for local play as it's a card game, but online play wouldn't have hurt it. Only worth having if you have literally no other way of playing these games (Hearts, Rummy, Canasta, Euchre, Solitaire, and Cribbage). Either pick up a deck of cards, or if you have a DS, Clubhouse Games allows far more customisation, keeps score, has plenty more games; HB Arcade Cards is just outclassed by most other card game compilations.
