What's New in Version 1.3
I never heard of this game but saw from my dominos app. I love card games and am learning this one more and more as I play. I think the person who wrote the rules may be ESL (English as a Second Language) so I thought I understood for the most part but as the game went on I realized I had no idea how to play. My main struggle is how to score. I'm getting how to win now and how to bet, but sometimes I get unexpected hand points, which I don't mind but would love to know how I got them. I think an improvement for the game would be a demo option, and with each first couple rounds, explain each play and how it would be scored and why a certain player wins that hand, etc.
I used to think this app was great, but the more I play the more I see its flaws. The computer gives away points when it isn't forced to. For example, it will give you the two of trumps but on the next hand throw another trump! It also cuts in the high card for nothing! Overall, I'm impressed with the app but it just needs to make the other players smarter. The graphics and speed are great. The set up is very user friendly. I also wish that at the end of each hand you could review the tricks, just to analyze what could have been. And it could be cool to be able to play with just one opponent and go until 11 points. I do recommend this app!
The opponents are terribad.
I don't know who made this game but there is zero opponent comprehension involved. They blindly throw trump on off suit cards with zero game involved, do not take hands when there are things worth taking, and only know to throw trump on trump but will play their jack on an ace rather than an 8. Gave this two stats because its fun to sick around with but with zero opponent logic, this is not a game to have.
