Customer Reviews


So many reviews neglect to consider that an app is free of charge. Appreciate the work on a classic game, and appreciate you making it free.

Some thoughts to consider though - game play is too fast. Part of the fun is counting the cards. The game is so fast I find myself just reading what the results were then on to the next hand rather than actually looking at my opponents hand. Adding a settings feature allowing me to slow down game play would be great!

Secondly, I think algorithms might be off, or whatever the computer uses to calculate who gets dealt what. I find in the games I've played my opponent gets unrealistically consistent good hands. I think adding a settings feature with a difficulty setting would help this.

And thirdly, rate of play. It's a bit to "instantaneous" for my liking, as soon as I play a card, there's immediately another card on the table giving me the feeling that I'm racing against the clock. Adding a settings feature to slow down rate of computer response to help you keep track in your head would be great.

I know it was all speed concerns, maybe I'm just getting old. But thanks for a great FREE app that doesn't have ANY in app purchases. I will continue to follow/support you guys for those two reasons. Good job!

Deck is not stacked

A number of reviewers have said the great hands Mr. "AI" gets seem too numerous to be random. I don't find that to be the case.

One reviewer says he wins 62% of the time. I am currently at 61%. Mr. AI plays well and has a good algorithm behind him. But if you play excellently, you can beat him slightly more often than not.

Many beginners just keep the cards that maximize the points in their hands before the cut. They don't consider probable point differentials that can be created with certain cuts and their odds. They will keep a couple of extra points in their own hand even if it sets up the possibility of Mr. AI getting a killer crib.

Pegging cards and order of play are where many games are won or lost. As is positioning and mid and end game strategies.

If Mr. AI is getting way more great hands than you, consider it may be entirely your fault.

Overall good game

I enjoy the game for the most part, but some improvements could be made.
Good: generally plays well, not too easy to beat; game moves as fast as you want; easy to read graphics.
Not so good: sometimes makes a bonehead play, (like not making an obvious pair); interface could be made so you can use 1 hand on iPad; should be able to turn sound off.
Overall a good app.
