this game messes with you
You cannot tell me that this game isn't programmed to mess with your mind when you play the "Granny Gin" (highest) level. You draw a card that completes a set, but to keep it, you have to discard and break up one of two other partial sets in your hand. Whichever card you choose to discard--whichever set you break up--I GUARANTEE that, on the next turn or two, you will get the precise card that WOULD HAVE completed the set you broke up, if you hadn't thrown that last card away. It just happens WAY too often to be random.
UPDATED TO ADD--Now that I've downloaded another gin rummy game (Gin Rummy Multipack by PressOK Entertainment), I am even more certain that this one is rigged--not just so Granny Gin wins FAR more often than she should, but also to torment you with the precise card you needed until your very last turn. I've played this other game for a few days, and even playing the highest-level opponent there, I actually win occasionally--not all the time, or even half, but enough for it to be enjoyable. It's a big change from a game that mostly made me want to throw my iPhone at the wall. So if you're looking for a load of frustration, this game is just the thing--but otherwise, keep looking!
The levels get harder as you progress and the "cheating" that other reviews mention is just luck which cuts both ways. I've achieved Gold wins at all levels and of course Grandma Gin was the hardest but you can still do it. It's a fun game that would be boring if it were too easy but it gets a little more challenging at each level. Enjoy!
They are right, it cheats!
And it’s not just Grandma Gin. It’s quite obvious that Gin Ninja and Gin Computer certainly do as well. It appears their “talent” for winning really comes from manipulating the cards in their favor. Too bad! For me, the program has a lot going for it and I would have easily given it 5 stars if it didn’t stack the deck. Rummy Knight usually seems to play fair, but the higher levels don’t, and constantly losing to a cheat is no fun.
