Fun, but no doubt "math" is off with higher ranked players The game is great, but the higher ranked players aren't more skilled, they just get better cards more quickly. As many users already pointed out, the higher-ranked players knock within 3-4 discards at way too high of a rate. In my opinion, the way the algorithm works is not to make them better players, but just give them better cards. The highest ranked players almost always have 2 aces from the start. I also agree that the score plays into how good of cards they get. I still enjoy it.
Great Gin App Nice and clean looking with a lot of useful features. Best interface among gin apps ive played. Bill is actually the hardest to play against (60% win) compared to the higher ranked players where i win 60-70% of the time. Unfortunately simple strategy allows you to win often with this scoring system. Maybe try the +25 bonus to gin and undercut rule and i guess it will be more challenging...
Okay, but not fantastic Not standard Gin Rummy rules, game often knocks after just a couple of hands, even at the so called 'weaker' players, which means that the shuffle is loaded in favor of the AI. I've got quite a few games from this company, but this was a disappointment. The ability to set the match points to more than 100 would be better, I've never played Gin with such a low match score.
Excellent Really good game with a good description of the rules. Lots of different opponents to play. Obviously ads are a bit annoying but it's free and these people need to get paid, so I can't complain! Also, a link to the paid version might be good. Can't seem to find it in the game.
Fun at first Hard to believe the computer can knock or gin after two or three draws. In fact, this happened in almost 7 out of ten hands I play. In addition, I have been up 70 or 90 to nothing countless times only to lose. These observances only occur with players rated 5. I know the developers are going to state their statistics match real life but something in the algorithm is off when playing the harder opponents. Too many comments stating the same for it to be an anomaly. Good game otherwise and can pass time.
A tad bit confusing. There are times that it seems like I should be able to knock but it doesn't let me. For an example I had a set of 3 and a complete set of all 4 but it wouldn't let me knock. My opponent then knocked with just 2 sets of 3. Maybe I'm just not understanding this. Please help.
