Solid App for Whist Players

This game is alot of fun. I’m surprised more people haven’t downloaded this yet. Alot of options are provided to customize your game to the various rules/styles of playing Bid Whist! The NeuralPlay customer team was very helpful and wasted no time helping to clarify my issues with implementing my choice rules. Now that I’ve successfully changed the game to my liking, I find myself playing during any free moment I get! Since Spades is so redundant, it’s nice to finally have a good whist app!

Thank you for your review. Glad to hear you are enjoying NeuralPlay Bid Whist. To get the "Low beats high" setting to work, please try the following. From settings - custom rules, choose "Low beats high". Then on the main screen choose "Custom rules" from the spinner and press "New Game" to play with your new custom rule settings. Currently one must choose "Custom Rules" and start a new game to have the custom rules take effect. Please contact use at for more details.

AI needs improving

I enjoy this app! HOWEVER, the AI needs to be updated. Example…when winning a bid, your partner(computer) should always play their best cards(Aces in other suits, etc), before giving you back the lead.
In NO Trumps, you NEVER play the tops off a suit(aces)unless you can control the suit. Meaning, Don’t lead with ace if you don’t have king, queen or jack. Play a low card, and maybe partner has king, queen etc.
Also, If I win the bid, and my partner has no more trump cards, HIS VERY NEXT play should ALWAYS be a weak card in his strong suit. This is strategy to let me know he may have an ace in that suit.
I hope this makes sense, coming from someone who has been playing bid whist his whole life. Which I learned from my grandfather’s generation, who played in bid whist card clubs practically, his whole life. 😉

Glad to hear you are enjoying NeuralPlay Bid Whist. Thank you for your review. And thank you for the helpful comments. We are continuing to make improvements to the AI.

The AI on level 3, uses rules and should better lead back winners as you describe.

The AI on levels 4+ uses a Monte Carlo simulation to determine the best plays. We find this AI plays better overall than the rules we have on level 3. However, we have found some odd plays where it did not lead back correctly.

In version 2.70, we have made adjustments to make the AI on levels 4+ lead back winners better.

No Pop-up ,

I would give it 5 stars but…

I can’t get it to play fully like the real game, even though the settings say you can. I have it set for low taking out a high, yet when you play, only a no trump takes out a high. That’s not the real rules. Also, I have it set for minimum bid 4, yet the computer keeps sliding in with 3’s. No big deal, just annoying to see for a real bid player. Lol. My final issue is the ads interrupt my music, not ok. I’m ok with ads, I don’t need to hear them or have them override whatever I am listening to. Other than that. Solid app. The computer makes an ok partner, not like my crew, but doesn’t make dumb moves.
