Was good, not anymore.

This was a good game, especially in Acey Deucy mode, but not anymore. Several functions that used to be available have been disabled in an attempt to get you to pay for the overpriced full version. I’ll be deleting it.

you owe me 5 bucks ,

Dreadful Game

The engine for this game is horrible. I just played in Acey Deucey mode, I rolled one Acey Deucey to the CPU’s 9, and my 14 doubles to CPU’s 25... I Still won the game by 15 points. Bad engine and bad roll stats.

I'll give it an extra star because ...

It doesn't cheat quite as outrageously as the Mac version of the game, only about 70% of the time. It's a shame, if it wasn't for the crooked dice rolls, this would easily be a 5 star game.
