Fun but aggravating
This game is fun and quite addictive and I absolutely love it. I only play solo games since i do not have a Facebook and don't desire to have one. However, I find it extremely frustrating when I'm playing solo mode and I win, but somehow I am placed low on the leaderboards. There are games when the amount of cards each player has is near one another, which makes it understandable for the computer players to have beat me by score. However, for some reason the gold computer player is always the top scorer. There have been times when I've had a 20 or more cards lead on the gold computer player and I'll win, yet it always beats me on the leaderboards by score. At first I didn't mind, but after a while it becomes annoying and aggravating. Besides that, the game is really fun. If the scoring won't bother you then you'll definitely enjoy this game!
Fun but the update made it worse.
I love skip bo but my significant other hates the game. I love playing this game in solo mode. Before the recent update, I found it to be much too easy to win even on hard. Now I find it frustrating that the computer wins in the first 2 turns most of the time. If I can stave them off past the first two hands, I still typically win. However, the scoring is utterly pointless. I will beat the socks off of the other plays and win with a lead of 23+ cards, yet I still don't even get 1/2 the points of the computer and am always in 8th or lower place.
The multiplayer settings are horrible as you wait days for someone to play before you get a turn again. There needs to be an option to play with real people or a mix of real and computer players on one device as in the monopoly app where you can pass the phone/tablet from player to player.
Addictive but frustrating
I enjoy the game and play it a lot. But he A.I. is definitely unbalanced. A.I. Players tend to get their Phases accomplished in the first round of drawing way too often, very unrealistically, having multiple wild cards in every hand. While you the player are lucky to get any wild cards. And it seems the player is almost always the primary target of all skip cards played by A.I. players, regardless of how many payers there are or who is in the lead. But despite these unbalances it's still a fun game. But unlike the real thing you can't throw pretzels at the opponents that are targeting you.
