In the early part of the 20th century, Five Hundred was the favorite social game of the United States. It was finally eclipsed by Bridge but is still played worldwide by millions, particularly in Australia. It was devised and introduced in 1904 in the United States. Five Hundred can be thought of as a combination of Euchre and Bridge.
Players around the world play five hundred with their own rules. And as I have discovered individuals play five hundred with their own rules. I am an Australian and the rules of i500 are the rules I have been brought up with. Customs setups can be made to adjust the rules to better match what your used to. I cannot create the options unless you ask for them.
* Full rules for my brand of Aussie 500.
* Details game stats.
* Full Hand history.
* WiFI/Bluetooth multi player.
That depends on you!! If there is enough interest I will include:
* Game center leader boards
* and of course suggestions

Good fun, some bugs
I've had a lot of fun with this game so don't want to be too critical.
But a few bugs with the game play logic.
For example, Hearts are trumps and my partner is playing last. 2nd last trick, the 3rd player plays the Joker then my partner plays the Jack of Hearts (bower). So plays the 2nd highest card on an unwinnable trick. The next trick he then plays the Queen of Hearts. So my partner had the Jack of Hearts and Queen of Hearts, but played his best card and a trick that had already been won by the Joker. Makes no sense!
It's like there is a flaw in the logic that doesn't recognise the bowers under certain circumstances. So thinks the Jack is lower than the Queen.
Overall a good game but these little bugs are frustrating.
Good Job - great work
It's been a while since I played 500 and it didn't take me long to get the hang of it again - this version is really good. Can you add something in-game so we can send you suggestions or ideas. When the cards are first dealt I noticed that they look like they are sorted but not always is the sort correct - weird. Could we have a running total of the game - which team won what etc - like a score card? Not sure if it is there - but a resume? Wondering if I could sent my partner a facial expression - like : it's all yours, or hopeful etc.
Could be so much better
This game is fun and the only version of 500s I've been able to find, but it could be made so much better.
-needs an option to save game (because I rarely have time to sit and play to reach the 500 score) but once you exit you have to start a new game.
-option to slow the speed of the game down.
-the ability to go to the menu whilst playing instead of having to close the app completely to get back to the menu.
-more options to customize how your partner and the other team play the game.
-there also could be an option to force the dealer to make a bid if everyone else passes.
-the team who doesn't win the bid should get 10 points per trick they win.
