Ratings and Reviews
I was taught this game in high school by some Vietnamese friends. It’s pretty close to how I learned. A couple minor things I think would improve the app. First, the version I learned had a rule that if everyone passes the person that played the last card or cards could play all cards of that type (single, pairs, trips, runs etc etc) that were higher in their hand. I believe this would speed the game up and would reduce the number of times someone waits till they see a red 2 to play their trap. The other minor issue is there’s no way to turn in all of your pigs at once. I just got an achievement that rewarded me with 200 pig skins and to turn them in I have to press that button 200 times. Please consider adding an option to turn in all at once. Other than these minor issues I love the game and I’m hooked on this app. Thank you
Cool game but there are some room to improve. It seems like the person who wins usually have higher chance to win again because they get to go first. It also seems bombs are so frequent. Lastly, there should be an auto pass if the user has less card in hand than the straight thats being played.

Hi, thank you playing Pig Hunters! The winner goes first rule is there to offset some of the luck that's involved in the game. If the person with the lowest 3 gets to go every hand then there's more luck involved. Also, going first is a reward for coming in first place.
Regarding the bombs: it may seem more frequent than when you're playing in person, this is because you actually play more hands online. Rest assured, our shuffling system is 100% random.
And your last point is a great suggestion! I'll forward this to our game design department. Thank you again for your support!
3 of Spades
I’ve read the developers responses to why they let the winner start instead of the 3 of spades and it doesn’t make sense. The 3 of spades is a huge disadvantage, so the rules balance it out by allowing/forcing them to go first, but they also must use the 3 of spades. The fact that you can start the game with a 3 card run ending with the ace of hearts is ridiculous. (It’s easy and unbeatable)
Too many times have I seen the winner of the last game lock the other 3 players from playing any cards at all. When you play by the rules this rarely happens.
If you insist on not playing by the rules and allowing the winner to go first you should at least force them to use their lowest card in their starting combination.
This game also doesn’t let you use 2’s in a sequence? They cap runs at the Ace of hearts. What gives?
The game is fun, but the rules being changed makes it much less enjoyable.

Hi, thank you for your support! The great thing about the game of Tien Len (Thirteen) is that it's played by people from many different countries. Because of this, the game's rule might be understood slightly different depending on the country. For our game, the lowest 3 gets to go first unless there was a previous winner at the table.
