Dealing is far from lifelike. Picker and partner have high trump almost always. Played this game for 40 plus years...this game is not at all like real cards. Boring!!!

If your a good player, you'll hate this game. The computer does not play fair. Computers ace will walk much more often than yours. Computer (in the last chair) will throw a small denomination card on your trick and then drop an ace of the same suit on pickers trick the very next hand even though he's not partner. Its pretty clear the computer knows who you are and what cards are in your hand before they are played. It's a shame because I've been looking for a good, fair sheepshead game for awhile. Thought this was it. Nope!

The computer players do not know the cards of the other players. The computer players do not know the status of the other players (partner or opponent). However, the computer players do use certain algorithms to help determine who the partner is.

What's new

Made changes to improve the card playing logic. Fixed a few issues that caused the game to close unexpectedly.
