FAQ
===
(1) How can I lay down my hand?

Tapping the green check mark icon or red x icon will end the current hand. The check mark appears when you have enough points to meet your bid. The x appears when you can no longer make your bid.

(2) How do I display the hidden played dominoes on 2 mark bids?

Within the trick dialog, tapping any domino or hidden trick icon will display all played dominoes.

(3) Can I undo a bid or trump selection?

If you are the high bidder, an undo icon appears. Tapping the icon will undo the last bid, trump, or contract selection.

(4) What are the different AI play styles?

Conservative: Only bids above 30 with really strong hands.
Normal: Bids on a mix of hands. More likely to bid 31-35.
Aggressive: Bids on most any hand if there is a chance to make it.
Once play starts, the three variants generally follow the same strategies.

Wow! It's free. It's 42. Yet I suspect my computerized opponents cheat. Much more often than not the seem to play into each others hand. Maybe the have signals like my cousins. It'd be super-cool if this were networked so I could play with friends. Oh! My computerized partner is a moron.

Almost great The only infuriating thing about this is the lack of a "lay down" option. I'm tired of having to sit through CPUs 84 hands, where after the first trick, in real life, the player would knock over his hand, revealing the remaining 4 trump and 2 doubles. Everything else about this app I enjoy, and by far the best 42 simulator I've ever played.
