Bid Whist is a popular book (or trick) taking game in which two teams of two players try to win the bid or set their opponents. If you're familiar with spades, bridge or hearts, or if you just like a very strategic challenge, you will love this game.
- Deuce of Spades as third joker
- Low bid beating High bid
- Board of 4 instead of 3
- Register to compare scores with other players
- Ace is always the high card in non-trump suits, whether uptown or downtown.
- Your hand is automatically arranged based on an uptown/downtown bid and the trump suit
- The kitty is not sported
- Over books are not counted
- To be credited for a Boston, you must bid and win 7. Simply getting all the books will not count for a Boston if you bid less than 7.

IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO UNDO THIS UPDATE, PLEASE POST INSTRUCTIONS!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!
My sister updated in December, and warned me not to. So I managed, for MONTHS, to avoid updating after reading all the bad reviews. Several times I accidentally pressed "update all" but managed to stop it by pressing the button again, which aborted the update. This evening, I must have hit update without realizing it. Ugggghhh!!! I used to be able to intuitively tell what I should do with my hand, but no longer. UI is too cluttered. Text boxes are busy with unnecessary info. Cards are too small. Player names are no longer clever. Lame. Will miss playing, and will definitely be deleting. Wish I could give a -5 rating. 💩💩💩💩💩
I hate your update. I find no more pleasure in playing bid whist with your new app. Jerod please do me, my sister, my brother and all the people that I know that played bid with your app a favor and leave excellent alone! I want my big cards back with the simple screen. Your current screen is TOOOOO busy. It gives me a headache and I can't see or figure out what the cards are. A 7 or a 4. I can't tell. Please change it or you will lose us. Your rating now is 1. That's not good when you were at 4.5.
This is the only decent Bid app. The update is horrible. The interface was already subpar in the original app, this is worse. It's too bright and the cards are too small. I really don't like it at all. Please get a good graphics person or research other games, Toggle, Ruzzle, Candy Crush , etc. Their graphics and interface are engaging. The algorithms are off for the game plays too; it plays winning cards out of turn. Please get something better; I want to support you and I love bid!
