This game, unless you have all your opponents set to complete idiots, will CHEAT. The AI is geared in such a way, that the AI will always WIN.. This game, SUCKS, and I will not re-install it ever.. I have found much better
Love the interface. Hate the logic of your partner. Can't bid tightly. Your partner may bid three, but might easily be able to take 5. If total bid is higher than 11, partner will throw away 4 of those possible 5 tricks and leave you one trick short. If you "undo" to the beginning and re-bid such that total tricks are less than 11, partner will take all 5 and leave you holding 2 or 3 bags. Stupid stuff that no partner would ever do. I hardly play straight through a game anymore. I bid appropriately and if partner does stupid stuff in a round, I "undo" the round and bid to take into account the partner's stupidity, sometimes 2 or 3 times! Partner sometimes ruins your nil with stupid stuff, like leading with a lower card that will catch you instead of a suit you've already shown you're out of. It's a shame because the interface is the nicest out there and I like not having ads (paid version).
The game give penalties even when you turn that feature off. Go back to old version. Fix it so you can play real people as well.
Getting more and more frustrated by stupid play by partner going nil - like having ace and king of clubs and discarding a Jack of spades. Could we have a control that lets you block your partner bidding nil. Also opponents seem to improve their play while my partner(s) get progressively worse!
After the last update play is slow during the bidding process then gets back to normal. Aggressive bidding is one thing but watching your teammate throw away an Ave or King for no reason is frustrating.
Have played free version for several years and think it,s the best out there but having paid to avoid adverts am still getting them and IMO updates have not improved game
