A Seven-in-one card game for iPhone and iPad.
Barbu is a trick-taking game in the style of bridge or hearts. It differs from most other card games in that each hand has different rules.
A complete game consists of 28 hands. In each of a player's seven deals, he may choose one of the seven sets of rules, or contracts, available for that hand.
Contracts are: No Tricks, No Queens, No Hearts, No Last Two, No King of Hearts (Barbu), Trumps, Dominoes (or Fantan).
The objective of the game is to achieve the highest total score out of the four players.
Detailed rules of the game are included.
Enjoy a fun game with excellent game graphics, music and sound effects!
What's New in Version 1.1.2
Correction: Results table is shown after the first round and after every 7th round.
Something Has Changed
There aren't many computer card games out there that are "fair" to the human player. This was only one of two that I had. Was. Something has changed, maybe a new programmer has been tweaking the algorithm figuring that if the game isn't beating the human it must be broken. Whatever the reason, the opponents are now all playing against me rather than each against the other. I used to love this game. It was comfortable, like an old friend. I guess things change.
Best game and great app
Great game, well worth the price. A few things missing:
- the doubling phase
- tracking statistics over time (times won, games you perform well at, etc)
- AI is weak in some games like dominos and barbu.
- more options for game play (no required underruff in trumps)
With those things I'd easy pay... 3 times more!
Glad I found this app
I've played this game with friends for several years and although it's a little different than what I learned, it's still awesome! My new favorite app!
