Trump rules changed again
I've played about thousand games of Pinocle with this app, I don't play much else except Tetris to pass idle moments. I do enjoy it overall, and also agree with most of the negative reviews. After a while it's easy to predict what your partner will play though it's often nonsensical. I rarely yield the bid to my partner, and it's best to be aggressive in bidding. My main complaint lately is that the game forces you to use trump if you can't play the given suit. I like to yield to my partner in the middle of the hand to allow him to play his Aces. It's disruptive if I can't throw some trash down and must pick up with trump.
Can not understand
Why this AI refuses meld I do not understand. The AI takes the bid, I send the AI a marriage in spades (the trump that the AI called) along with two Jacks of Diamonds.
Then the AI sends the two Jack of Diamonds back and ends up with a total meld of 190, instead of the 490 it could have had!!! The AI does this EVERY TIME I send good meld to it and refuses to send me a Jack of diamonds when I call diamonds trump and we end up with a single pinochle instead of a double run in diamonds. Something is really wrong here!!!
Review part two: as incredible as the AI refusing meld, it also wastes aces. When I lead an off suit ace and the opposition has two or one of the aces, my AI has an ace and a ten, the AI plays the Ace! Great, I get ten points, wow who! Then I play a king and the player to my left beats it with his ten leaving my partner (the idiot AI) to follow it a ten BECAUSE the idiot sluffed it’s ace on mine!!!
Review part three: three time now the AI will lead an off suit 10 and lose the trick then I find out it had two aces that it could have played. This app is frustrating in the extreme. But wait, it gets better. The opposition bids and plays brilliantly, go figure.
They won’t fix problems with game
This is pinnacle but the developers are so stupid that they don’t count single pinnacles. If you pass 3 legs of pinnacle, they don’t melt the single pinnacle. When you pass a pinnacle they will return either the queen of spades or the jack of diamonds rather than melt it. I have written them but they do nothing. Also when say you have a double ace of spades and the queen you will loose so you pass one ace so they could take the queen, they play the ace on your ace. Learned along time ago you can’t cure stupids. When you pass the two jacks of diamonds which make 300 pinnacle and the game passes them back in lieu of melting two marriages which looses the game and they do it every time this game has a real problem and they never fix any of the problems They even pass back the jacks or queens when they do have 300 pinnacle
