Ratings and Reviews
My biggest gripe about this game ap is that the 'other' players don't know how to through off. For instance, if I'm picker and I lay down the queen of spades and my partner has the queen of clubs, my partner will play it instead of playing a higher point trump or a lower power trump.
Also, when selecting no trick leaster the ap will freeze at the end of the round and you have to start a new game. Very annoying.
Good for practice
The automatic players don't have all the forethought of human players but that's to be expected. I also don't like the way that when everyone passes, the dealer picks redeal , doubler, or leaster. There should be an option to set one of those three as the default when no one picks. Don't like that part at all.
I don't know why the developer has not fixed the quirks. We have all paid for this game, and the playing is completely poor. Sometimes the partner even plays the called ace before the suit has been led, and other times, someone who is not the p smears instead of trumping when the picker has played. These could be fixed, easily. Has he been selling this and not improving it? That is poor business practice.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
