Freezes up, unplayable now
The game freezes up to the point of being unplayable now. I'm guessing it's because of the update.
I really enjoyed the game, despite the drawbacks others have mentioned—general lack of randomness in rolls, favoring the computer radically, yet ensuring that the player wins most of the time—but now I can't play through a complete game without a freeze. That's more than just a bit frustrating; it's unplayable. I've deleted it from my iPad, but will check back to see if an update resolving the issue gets released.
It makes you wonder if the developers are trying to drive players to a paid version, but I'm not likely to pay for something that is buggy.
It's a shame...
...that the latest update, which promised improvements users were seeking, was simply a way to insert an onslaught of annoying ads, particularly videos. They'll use up your data plan, but also they hijack your volume control so that you cannot play without the volume suddenly being cranked up on high to annoy the people next to you. Oh, so you can forget about playing it at work, too! It's too bad because the underlying game used to be pretty decent.
Good practice for when you play the world's greatest cheat. ALWAYS comes in off bar & hits any open man. INVARIABLY goes first with optimal rolls. FAR TOO MANY doubles, guaranteed when losing. A waste of time. When will someone develop interface with independent dice roll add on?
Latest Release: I did not think this app could get any worse, I was wrong. Now it just hangs and does nothing. Nice work Trivial.....next time try testing before a release.
May be a good thing, time to move on.
