Pit your sheepshead skills against One Eye Jack, Crack Meister, Ace No Face and Queen Betsy. Sheepshead, THE Game is a fun, challenging and easy to use Sheepshead card game in which you play against four computerized players. The game supports Called Ace or Jack of Diamonds as partner. Blitzing and cracking adds to the excitement.
Tap a card to play or discard the card. The game plays only in portrait mode for phones and only in landscape mode for tablets.
If you own a Windows pc, you can download the game on to your pc and play the game for 7 days free.

Ratings and Reviews
You’d be kicked out of Wisconsin
If Picker throws fail on a lost lead. Lead pickers fail, please!
Opponents sit on their Queens. So many lost tricks.
If the lead comes back to first lead and picker and/or partner had already trumped it(barf)...don’t lead it again.
If the the picker has top trump (barf) don’t be cute...lead your cards straight...I’m not a moron..
Just missed Schneider cuz winner of off suit didn’t lead it back...basic sheepshead play. Argh!
Best game app but
Some play is incorrect. For ex. When you have all three aces and call a 10 the ace must be played the first time the suit is led. Today picker played a king, kept the ace, and was able to lead the ace on the last trick when no trump was left.
Also, when an unknown is called and picker has more than one your game does not allow him to fail off the second one. In real life this is allowed as long as picker keeps one in his hand for when the called is led.
And the contact us page doesn't seem to work-does not submit.
There is no doubt about it, this is the best Sheepshead app out there. Very rarely does the AI make a questionable play. If you are an advanced Sheepshead player you will not be disappointed with this. Trust me.
