Good game. I only have a couple of issues but they are big ones. #1 , why isn't there an option to play with real people?? That is something I would spend real $ for, Invite your friends to play option.#2 I have the difficulty level for your opponents set at 6, (the hardest) and I still win fairly easy. The only time I lose is when my teammate makes numerous mistakes. Everything else is solid! But playing against real people is what makes this game FUN. A chat option with real players= AWESOME!

Glad to hear you are enjoying NeuralPlay Pinochle. Thank you for your review. We are working on improvements to the AI. You can use the Custom AI to make it play a little better than level 6. We are looking into a multiplayer feature. Please contact us at support@neuralplay.com with other features you would like to see.

I've been playing for a long time. Your partners in this game won't play their aces when they get in the lead then they end up getting them cut. I've seen the partner diss aces when they no longer have trump and keep lower cards. This is with the game settings on the highest difficulty. In addition their should be an option to give the opponents the 31 trick points and move on to the next hand especially when their isn't any possibility of saving the meld. It's time consuming.

Thank you for your review. The AI uses an advanced simulation-based method to determine the plays. This sometimes results in odd plays. We are working on improvements. The surrender option is offered to give the opponents points after the bid is finished before play. Please see settings to enable. There is also 'skip hand' that might be helpful.

Great experience, I've learned how to play using this app. It is also fully customizable for more experienced players to enjoy. The only thing I don't like is obviously the AI will never make a mistake bidding or playing tricks. I find myself asking the help button for advice on bidding in order to be competitive against the AI. Although the bidding advice is helpful with teaching me how to bid the meld it feels like cheating... Anyways I feel confident enough to play IRL now.
