**************************************
Double tapping to play a card is supported (it must be enabled in the options menu). If enabled, tapping a card once will select it, and tapping it a second time will play it.

This will allow you to change selected cards if you accidentally select the wrong card! Simply tap the correct card, and the first card will be unselected. Tap the second card again to confirm playing it.

The AI is just challenging enough for a while, but could use a little boost. Graphics are basic, however it doesn't take away from the game. Many options to customize gameplay. This app is as good as the best as NeuralPlay, and I use them for most every card game I play. Great work. I'm willing to be part of any discussion on the evolution of the app.

It's about as good as sheepshead with AI can get. I would like one change, the AI partners *need* to have a rule to lead the queen of spades every time. Obviously there are lots of little mistakes they make because this game is complex, but that one is the easiest to fix and most obvious.

The Program is NOT random. If you're leading in a Tournament, the other robot player partners will make plays that cause you to lose. Late in a game, the robots often times have no idea what to lead. Often times, the robot players purposefully throw away good trump tricks when they have smaller trump to toss. The Developer is either not a good Sheepshead player... or he/she doesn't know how to program quality strategy. And there appear to be other non-random variables at play.
