Computer isn’t very strong.
I agree w another review that even w the smart partner option, the computer is not strong. As a teammate, in cases where it becomes obvious that the only trumps remaining belong to your team, it will continue exhausting trumps and forcing them from your hand unnecessarily, which often leaves you to to leadoff position but no more trumps and just bad off dominoes remaining. As an opponent, when it becomes obvious that it’s teammate has the strongest domino and that it will not be trumped, the computer will often refuse to add count to the hand and thereby set your team. IE sometimes you end up winning when you shouldn’t. Idk. Decent but not strong CPU. Technical issue the “tap” option doesn’t work, you have to hold it down for a long time to highlight trump dominoes in the betting round.
Game is good except for one big problem. Even though I paid for a “smart” partner and challenging competition, I don’t feel like I got that. Partner and opponents continually make rookie mistakes. Partner doesn’t seem to be able to recognize when he and I have all the trumps (or all of any suit), and doesn’t seem to have the ability to utilize the strategy of holding on to a trump to catch count that opponents are holding on to. When we both have all the trumps, he will play all of his trumps, even when he has other doubles in his hand, pulling all of the trumps out of my hand, and often causing us to lose the hand. Very frustrating. He and opponents also sometimes fail to play count when it’s obvious, or likely, that their partner is going to win that hand. Also sometimes fail to play a double when they should to win an important hand. Also very frustrating. In spite of these, I still play it. It has pretty good overall functionality. Just EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING when “smart” partner repeatedly makes stupid plays.
Extremely frustrating! Although the game is 42, the partners are relatively “stupid.” Though this is the case for all the computer players (even your opponents), so at least that is fair. The most recent example, which has happened multiple times - I didn’t have the double for my trump, so I played a lower trump to pull it in. My partner played count (the 6/4) even though he couldn’t have known if I was faking or not (I wasn’t). It cost the game. Also, the game nickels and dimes you to get better partners, to play for more marks, to make the game more difficult, to play Nel-O, to make the last player bid if no one else has (it just re-shuffles for the table), etc. It’s $.99-$2.99 per option or $9.99 for all of them. If I knew the developers were using the money to create a game where you could play with real people versus computers, I’d be ecstatic, but it seems steep just for options (especially when I don’t know if the partners will be any more intuitive or better).
