Sheepshead Tried playing call an ace and the partner/picker would trump the called suit. Impossible! He has to call an ace of a fail in his hand..once the game called the ace of diamonds...again never would happen so had to switch back to playing the jack of diamonds partner game as the "call an ace" game isn't even shheepshead.

Possible Improvements I learned Sheepshead from family in S.E. Wisc. When playing called Ace - the Ace MUST be played the FIRST time the fail suit is played. The Ace of Diamonds can not be a called Ace . Money scoring - we played 5 (cents), double on the bump, triple on the loner. But, you've done a fine job. It would be nice it you could have a wallet, that would let us keep track on our winnings. Thanks, I'm enjoying it.
Close to a great game The trouble i keep running into is if the person to the left of me is forced to pick. The partner remains the j o d but as the hands are played out the player forced to pick has the j o d. The following player lays a fail card and they end up being the partner. The most recent i had the jack of hearts but the following player was picked with the 9 of clubs. I can not find a rhyme or reason on this. Secondly is it possible to update so that if i pick the bid can my partner pick up my smear. Also more advatar
Sheepshead Have played this for quite some time now and really enjoy it. I have programmed in the past so I know how difficult it can be to get all the nuances (AI) of the program right. I can tell that a lot of time has been spent to get this app to the level that it is at, regardless of AI. And NO ads (awesome). Thanks for you efforts. The one thing I would look at is periodically the picker will have the Jack o' Diamonds and someone else will be be called as the partner. Thanks again for your hard work.
Omg Players throw cards that in real game would get u killed, ex, throw off on called ace, dont take trump trick when not p
Not exactly like regular play. I will admit to changes taking place but still have yet to fix the basic problem with this game. One, the computer consistently has better hands than you do and your ratio of picking is much lower than theirs. Second, the computer will consistently throw high point cards on a trick where they should be throwing their lowest so other team always wins. It's frustrating. So I only rate as average due to basic fundamentals of the real game missing.
Sheepshead Its a decent game but the ai players do some dumb plays.the pick the ace feature is horrible tho, they dont follow the rules at all! Over all its fun 2 play tho
The ace of the called suit must be played when the called suit is led. Ace of diamonds is not an option. There are some other things during play that seem strange. I do not write code for apps, so I have no idea how to fix it, but on a number of occasions, it seems the logic of taking tricks is lost and hands are lost or won based on the logic of taking the tricks... The game is OK, but there is definitely room for improvement...
OK for a computer card game. I don't like how when the picker is Ulf and has the J of D the player following him is usually his partner. I have also noticed that some hands have failed play when trump is lead and then same player will have trump the next trick.
Better/Worse I love the fact that you can now customize game settings. 2 things that really annoy me are the fact that it locks up constantly during leister games and the a.i. could be alot more strategic with its play. Always lays trump in order of power from low to high no matter what. Other than that, it's a good way to pass the time.
AI cheats... Doesn't even follow the most basic of SH rules. Picker can NEVER win on a called ace trick. Picker MUST play their fail called suit. Picker can NEVER play an up trump to take the trick. But I just saw the AI picker do that on the first two hands I ever played here! Uninstalling...
Constant bugs Good game. Bad programing. It has serious problems that keep getting worse.
Totally unrealiatic This doesn't even come close to simulating the strategy of a real game. Probably OK if you are just learning.
I just scored 64 points, the problem is I lost to the other team which scored 67 points. 64+67= 131 last time I checked, which is more than the supposed 120 possible points.
Could use better AI Good game, wish the computer players played better. Felt like I was playing against below average players.
Made the turn for the better After new patch this game has had a huge turn around. Still have some questionable moves by Ai but it is much better overall. Also options are a huge plus.
AI have moderate retardation The AI do not play properly.... Throwing off when they should be taking trick and vice versa. Smearing picker. Good to learn to some extent
Great for learning the basics, but terrible for any strategy playing.
What rules are you playing by? When the called suit is played in this game you don't have to play the Ace. The picker doesn't have to keep a fail of that suit. I was tought to play this game by my German father and those plays are not in the rules.
Needs a lot of improvement If picker has Jack of diamonds without forced pick it makes person next to them partner, ai doesn't play correctly they hold onto trump until end instead of taking the trick, picker and partner are always loaded with trump especially with blitzers, needs big improvement.
Great for beginners but would like the option to save the current game. I hated having to restart the game when I was gone for only a few minutes.
Decent AI isn't all that spectacular but it is a fun game to kill time!
Freezes Fun, but constantly freezes. Wish I could save play when logging off.
Best sheepshead app! Great game! After update this is the most realistic sheepshead game out there. Great improvements!
I had someone pick on two low trump the ai could be better
Has problems but overall good I do love this game and for the most part it's really good love that it is Wisconsin rules as I grew up playing this game. But it freezes up so much and right in the middle if a hand. Please fix!
awesome..... New updates are beast! best sheapshead game out there fer android
Addicting Game! Thank you! Nice job on the AI on this. I would say the computer makes smart moves 95% of the time making the game more fun to play. Great work!
Updates get big thumbs up! The new updates to this already great game are a phenomenal improvement and is hands down the best sheepshead game out there. Leister and Jack of diamonds partner let's me play just like I do when my family is together. Thanks for making this incredible! Leister freezes quite a bit after the third card is played.
A good start The app itself and the style is good, just needs some work on the computer players' tendencies. One computer player didn't pick with 2 Queens and 6 trump, sticking me at the end with having to pick, that kind of stuff still could use some working
The game is fun to play Wish we could play real people on it
Don't like the forced to pick! Should be play a leaster if everyone passes. Also would be nice to pick different player's. Getting sick of the same same.
Nice, but missing some options The interface is great. It's missing some common Wisconsin rules, such as double-on-the-bump (aka punish the picker). Also no option for doubles instead of leaster? Do you have plans for online play? That would be amazing.
Can be fun but keeps locking up Get part way through games and it just stops. Have to force stop .
Very nice game but the players don't trump or smear as well as real experienced players. I'm guessing the programmer is from southeastern Wisconsin as diamonds are trump and not clubs as most play in central Wisconsin. Very nice, THANK YOU!
Too many Deficiencies No going alone? No summary of hands, called. ace not played when suit led. No leaster point totals
Hmmm. Computer play is highly questionable. I had JD and picked but ended up with a partner. Would give 1 star but it's nice to play sheepshead again. Screw you Yahoo! For removing game and replacing with arcade crap.
AI isn't the best, trump options need work as well as the actual game play ... still gets the job done for sheepshead
Good but... The called suit cannot be trumped by the picker. Must have a card of that suit in hand. It's been years since I played regularly, but I habw to agree with others that if the computer players were amongst the people I knew, they would be hetting a neer dumped on their head.
Free with no annoying ads! Sheepshead or Sheephead is the American form of the German game Schafkopf. This is 5 handed Sheepshead with 4 computer players. There are variations to the rules depending on who you play with. The rules are very simple and will be easily picked up by anyone that has played Sheepshead […]
