It is impossible to turn off this feature and to make the cards larger. In the lower left corner, the game has a running commentary (probably for the hearing impaired), but again this feature cannot be turned off to make the playing area larger.
I have always liked Hoyle Card Games (this is the third version I've owned), but in my opinion, the designers forgot that users purchase the game to play CARDS, not to be impressed with eye candy. The 2010 version of Hoyle Card Games has definitely missed the mark: save your money.
