Used to play Rook with friends and family - this game version (with some of my own rules) is as close to how we played! Love it! I love that there is the option for adding your own twists and character names. Yes, sometimes the AI plays a "stupid" move (like playing a 14 (second highest point card) on the oponent's 1 (Highest point excluding the Rook/BlackBird) even when the next turn they play a non-point card in the same color). But I thoroughly enjoy the game 😁. FYI- I like playing offline.

I've been looking for a card game called Rook that I played all through HS and college. This is exactly what I was looking for! It also let me set up my own "house rules" which rocks. Excellent game! Update: After playing for weeks the game would not start. I cleared app cache, but still no luck. The Android software gave a message saying the BB code had a bug and to contact the developer. The only way to continue was to clear app data and basically start over. I lost all modifications.

Come On!! I like the game. Pretty close to realistic play. HOWEVER: Ths graphics are a little small where the players bid. AND the AI isn't great: if it is pretty obvious that points should be played to assist your partner, do it! The computer partner will hold point cards until it's obvious that the other team has all the tricks. How can you set your opponents if your partner won't help? I wish it could be an option to be multi-player. Other than those complaints, it's pretty close to real.
