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.

Options include:
- 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.

Enjoy the game, but "Whoops"!

Puzzle love 4 life

I love Bid Whist, so I was happy to find your game. I like some of the updates, but there are a few things that need to be addressed.

Sometimes the game freezes and you have to quit the hand or leave the game. Also, it tells you that you have reneged when you really don't have any of the suit played and won't let you play another card/suit. Or the card does not play when you tap it and when you tap it again the game thinks you have played that card twice and you still have a card left at the end of the hand.
Also, often there are duplicate cards. When the duplicates are played at the same time by two different players, the computer wins the book no matter which order the cards are played in.

Also, often when you bid a "No Trump", 1 card will freeze resulting in no score for that hand and you have to quit the hand to continue playing.

One last thing, I too like the standard cards better, but I like the cute nicknames. I also prefer the playing board to show all of the players and what they bid separately, also how many books they made.

Please Work hard to it.


The app graphics are off center. The king, queen, and 2 jokers faces are bad. Please use stand card faces and not the drawings. They are hard on the eyes and not very good drawings. Actually I hate them. Try to use algorithms that prevent the same card from appearing in two hands. Also some times there are two many cards of a suit in the deck. The “No” challenges don’t show options. I remember where the uptown and downtown buttons are from the other games so I touch that area to play. The no ace challenge has aces, the no red cards has red cards etc. it’s a mess. I still enjoy using the app. It plays better on the iPad. The phone is a Hot mess. Yet I do enjoy using the app. I good love this app, if the developer was smarter.

Dumb play


I was winning the hand and my partner (machine) cuts me for no apparent reason. Then plays a card which is a losing card. If you can change the program to not cut when it is mathematically impossible for the opponent to win the hand that would make it a better game.

Plus the thing bids crazy bids. It bid a 5 no. A 4 no would have won the bid. It was the last bidder. And I’m never t sure it was a good bid. But at least take the minimum bid necessary to win the bid.
