Long-time user; great fun.
I've played GrassGames Cribbage on a desktop, iPhone, and iPad over the last several years. I enjoy this app, especially the ability to play on the network against some very talented players. When I simply want to play a few hands of "crib," I am able to play against the computer.
My only criticism of this app is that the algorithm seems to deal "unnatural" hands. By that I mean that most hands are easily playable for significant points as opposed to the reality of dealing from a card deck in a game at home. It also sometimes seems as though really highly-ranked players generally get better hands (more playable combinations) than do those with lower rankings. Then, perversely, they will get awful hands for days on end and see their ranking plummet. That's my sense of it, I don't know if it's true. Maybe this is the warped perspective of someone who hasn't been able to crack back into the Top 10 for over a year after having enjoyed that for a long time.
Been enjoying this app for a long time now - it looks good, functions very well with no bugs.
Computer wins most of the time
I am a seasoned cribbage player and am familiar with the nuances of the game. I don't mine losing some of the time but losing most of the time to the computer is no fun at all!
I have played probably a couple dozen times and have won a total of 2 games.
I don't get the cards the computer gets. It's like trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
I read a similar review who actually counted the times lost vs won and the computer consistently won more often.
Don't think I can continue playing.
