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.

Partner plays stupid It is fun, and i play it a lot. I like being able to play, but the partner is terrible. Can't ever let partner win a bid, the logic is aweful. Disappointed.

This is my family's game of choice! I really wish this app was multiplayer. I would also like to see a running commentary..who played what and such for when I have to put my phone down for awhile. maybe with some domino slang. 42 Has always been about the gossip and story tellin at the kitchen table for us and i think you could create such a feel with a running commentary. Also a skunk flashed when a team loses all marks would be good.

Plays great. Haven't played since I was a little kid. Just how I remember. Ps it doesn't favor the house like one whiner posted. I imagine she just sucks at 42.
