Sehr gut umgesetzt! Wenns geht bitte mehr als nur 4 Spieler im Multiplayer machen

Cant play 2 player multiplayer now

Fun game but latest update broke ability to play multiplayer with 2 humans and 2 computers.

Falls short

This IS Rook for all they call it "Blackbird." Im not sure how they can legally sell it. Anyway, as many other reviewers have said the biggest downfall of this game is the computer intelligence. No human would play as stupidly as your partner "Zeus." And the game is rigged in favor of the computer. They make the playoffs lays for each other your partner is too stupid to make. (For instance, realizing the card you just played is the highest left in the suit and playing points.) There is no random distribution of cards. The majority of the time your computer opponents will get the better cards. Add to that the stupidity of your partner and youll be screaming at the app as I am prone to do. I would love for the algorithm to be changed to randomly distribute cards, for the computer intelligence to increase, and for you to be able to change partners.

Black Bird Great Program

I have had this game for 2 days and it is so much like Rook you wont be able to tell the differance. Some apps you buy and regret. No regrets with this app.

Not too good

If you already know how to play the game of rook dont even bother getting it but if you dont understand how to play this is a good app to learn.

Love This!

CAW!! The all powerful Rook Bird that can swoop down at any time an change the outcome of the game. Been playing Rook for 25 years and am psyched that there is finally an app to play with friend cross-country.

HOPELESS. Simply Unplayable!

It all begins and ends with the hands you are dealt. I started 26 new games, examining my hands, and there are four suits with 16 potentially valuable cards. You need to have a few of those "16" cards to ever win a hand. In 26 deals I got no more than 2 of those cards ever. I used to play this game daily for years. Nowadays I have other apps. Time moves on.
