With showAll you are guaranteed to see all of the original card contents. On a wider screen the height of the card is still fitted into the height of the device, and the extra width is filled in with the content that was off the edges of the card.

I’ve used showAll for books, where I wanted to be sure to not lose any of the height, and games, where I wanted to be sure not to lose any of the width. For one game though it was better to do the noBorder compromise, so that it wasn’t geared towards either wider or not so wide devices. Suggesting noBorder for you was after asking questions about whether you could work in the same way.
