*Stay connected with Five Suits* - Based on Five Crowns, Five Suits Connected is an online turn-based card game. Play remotely vs friends or play alone.
Five Suits Connected (formerly named "Five Crowns") is an online card game based on the Five Crowns game by Set Enterprises, Inc. It is a turn-based card game that the whole family can play. With online play games can be played with family, friends or someone new from around the world in a match that doesn't end until all rounds have been played. Online play also features in-game messaging for interacting with your opponents. Five Suits Connected can also be played offline on a single device against others or against computer opponents.
The objective is to obtain the lowest number of points after playing all eleven hands of the game.
The game consists of two 55 card decks ranging from 3's to Kings of 5 suits. There are an additional 6 Jokers in the deck. In the first round, 3 cards are dealt to each player. Each round the cards are reshuffled and an additional card is dealt to each player. This continues until each player is dealt 13 cards in the last round.
Each turn starts by either drawing a card from the deck or picking up the top card from the discard pile. The turn is completed by discarding one card. A player can meld some or all of his or her books and/or runs during any of his or her turns. When a player melds all of the cards out of his or her hand they "open". When a player is able to open, the remaining players each have one last turn. Each player will pick up a card, lay down a card and meld his/her books and/or runs to remove those cards from his/her hand. The remaining cards count as points against him/her for this round. The player who goes first in each round rotates. Play continues until the eleventh hand when the Kings are wild. The player with the lowest score wins.
This update addresses an iOS 16 bug that was causing crashes on the New Match screen. The fix also now allows you to select from a list of recent online opponents when setting up a new match.
Thank you to those who have provided feedback and helped improve the game. Feedback is always welcome.

May need work again
Every time I have played this game, I have opted to play a full, 11-round game, with four players—three computer and one human (me). And up until today (1/8/19), I always—yes, always—got through the entire game with no problems. But earlier today, after I had played two games in full, I went to play a third one, and before it was even halfway over (I don’t remember exactly when now), the app shut down automatically. I reopened the app and had to start over, and it again shut down at some point before the halfway point. The latter two things happened again, after which I gave up. In each of these cases, I was very upset. When I purchase an app such as this one, I plan to always have it work right at all times no matter what, and don’t want to do any thinking about it crashing after a certain amount of time. So please fix the bug that keeps making this app quit.

Update 1/11/2019: Please download version 1.34 from the App Store and let me know if the issues persist. I believe that this update should address the issues you’ve been seeing. Thank you!
Thank you for providing the information on these crashes. If possible, could you reach out to me at FiveCrownsApp@gmail.com and provide detail as to what your last action was before triggering the crash (e.g., moving cards around via drag and drop) so I can replicate and fix the bug? In the meantime, I will also try to to replicate the problem and address on my end. Thank you for your support!
Buggy but still very fun!!!
I really love this game, but the app is a little buggy. For about a month I had a ghost match that was highlighted in green as if it was my turn to play, but each time I clicked on it it brought me to a different (and completed) match. That issue disappeared in the last couple of days. More frequently / more than half the time, it will switch random matches that I have started with normal scoring rules to make them alternate scoring rules. (This is a real bummer to me as I actively dislike using the new / bonus system and prefer the classic gameplay.) Another reoccurring glitch is that it will abruptly end my turn when I’m in the middle of it by either reverting my hand back to the way it was when the turn started and switching to my opponent’s turn or by discarding something random from my hand and switching to my opponent’s turn. (This doesn’t happen super often, but I’ve experienced it about four times in about 150 matches.) Lastly, however you set up the notification settings when you install the app seem to be unchangeable afterwards. (My mom had notifications on when she installed it, and she cannot figure out how to turn them off. (She works in IT.) I had notifications off when I started it, and I have not figured out a way to turn them on. (I never hear when it’s my turn unless I’m actively in the app.) Other than those glitches, I love this app, and I really love this game!!!
During the last year I have played Five Suits Connected with another couple every night at 6:30! For several weeks, it was the only event on my calendar! As life has started getting back to “normal”, we are missing playing some nights, but the game really helped our loneliness during the lockdown.
We have been playing the box card game, Five Crowns, for almost 20 years!! Four of us travelled to all 48 contiguous states over 10 years, playing the game in each state! And before Covid we played together twice a week! Your online version helped us stay connected & continue our addiction 😳
