    Love it! Plays as it should.

    Any versions after 7 are almost unbeatable, even on "beginner" mode because the picker almost always gets both black Queens and is trump tight. The partner always has a ton of trump if the computer picks, but rarely when the player picks. Not sure what changed in the card logic.

    Only wish if you had two of called suit you could fail off one on different suit before called suit is played.

    The computer will play the wrong card when picker and partner are known. The computer will play the lowest card vice the lowest points.

    The game has tons of options and the AI is pretty good. It is a lot of fun and well worth the cost. It is seen a number of updates with new features being added each time. The only thing it lacks now is the ability to call missdeal if there is no face and no ace in your hand but that is a very minor issue.
