Rated it 5* before I still can't believe so few people have downloaded this app. It's the best and I always enjoy playing. I can't remember it ever crashing. What more do serious players want?
Joker and bid issues Opponents play the joker on NT bids while still having cards of the played suit in their hand. According to every rule set, this is illegal. When playing inkle bids, the computer will inkle a suit without a bower. This makes it impossible to know how strong of a 6 bid it is. I've seen the AI bid 6 on a 4,5,6,7. With that said, the AI is still superior to the other 500 games on the market.
When Joker led... Love the app but hate when i lead my joker as first card my opponent leads a bower even though they had a lower card. I would get banished from my family if we did this playing cards!
Good overall Very realistic 95% of the time. Occasionally partner bids irrationally, e.g. 7 Diamonds w only one diamond in hand.
Almost there The customizable rules put this 500 app above all others (no other app allows you to play as close to traditional American rules), but it needs the option to allow everyone to only bid once per hand regardless of what else has been bid. The partner AI does some really stupid things sometimes, too, such as losing a trick by leading the King of trump, and then displaying later that they had the bower necessary to prevent that. The app just needs a few more updates!
Great game but..... After hiding the menu, there seems to be now way to bring it back. Sometimes I just want to restart a new game but I can't. How do I bring the menu back after hiding it?
Version 3.02 fixes a problem where sometimes the total number of wins and losses can be unexpectedly reset to 0.
Version 3.01 fixes a problem displaying buttons on the Review dialog for Android 5 (Lollipop) devices.
NEW!!! A much requested feature, REVIEW functionality at the end of a hand now allows you to review the previous hand played, the previous kitty and the bids made.
