Works well for a learning single player

My son is teaching me how to play, and this app is great for single player and being able to adjust the skill levels of the other
players. I tried a different 42 app, but my partner kept making stupid moves. This app’s partner is much smarter! Worth the
$1.99 to not be frustrated.

'First I do like this game, but I agree with some of the others, the AI’s don’t play right sometimes period. But my main issue
is when you have a lay over 84 hand (ex. 6 trumps and a double), and you have to play it out. If you have a lay over hand there
needs to be a lay over option after you

'I have played this game every evening (for the last 6 months)with my dad who lives more than a 1000 miles from me. Very seldom
do we ever miss a night. I just want to thank you for creating this game that makes it possible to play online. My family has
played 42 for many years and this version o

'Lead higher dominos'

'Please fix the lead strategy, particularLy the first trump trick of the hand. When the lead does not have the double Trump, they
almost always lead with their lowest Trump, which allows others to catch it with a low Trump. Rather they should lead with the
highest Trump that is not points to try and

'Great App - Fun To Play'

'I agree with the other reviewer about the partner play that seems to be lacking especially if you are playing SPLASH or PLUNGE.
\n\nWould be fun if we could bid SEVENS.'

'Mute button'

'Needs a mute button. I play while traveling and listening to music. The domino noise is constant interference'

'Best 42 game available.'

'There are 2 42 games available. This one is far superior to the one titles 42 dominoes. Only thing not included is the ability to
bid in 7s. Any chance that update will come?'

'Play options'

'I haven’t been able to go splash or plunge, I’ll bid two marks and and ether 3 or 4 doubles and it won’t give me the option
to do it. Also, low with doubles are low in their suit would be really nice to add.'

Good game

Needs some work in multiplayer. Love the game, but can’t finish with an invited player. Please fix!

My husband and I have the same type of phone but he can splash and plunge whereas my app won’t allow me too. Why does my partner
not play out the highest trumps first. This is critical with most partner hands. Overall it’s a fun game.

Bad Players

Partner bids and play is so bad.
The opponents as well.
Playing with three idiots.
I don’t think creator has ever played the game.
For instance; EW bids 31 in sixes and leads 6/1, I have no sixes, I gamble my partner has double six and play double five, They
play 6/3 and partner plays 6/0, then la

Please fix - conservative

If my partner is set as a conservative bidder, they should never bid with only two trumps (when those trumps are not the top two
trumps). That's not conservative; it's silly.

Decent game but limited variations

It is a decent version of 42 but is missing most of the variants that I am used to such Nello doubles low in suites, closest to
7, etc.

Not for Beginners

This app plays great, no complaint there. But for me, a beginner, it is fast. The game needs to have a “go back” one move
feature and a “replay this game” option, to allow the beginners to see what impact a different bid or play could make. I
couldn’t find any other apps that might offer this fea

Partner play questionable

I love the game but my partners play is sometime very lacking, especially when playing splash. I just played a game where he had
bid 31 and I had 5 doubles so I bid 2 marks and went splash. The led out his trumps then led an off which I caught with a double.
I then led a couple more doubles. On the

I have not played enough to see problems identified by other comments. The problem I encountered is the multiplayer option. It
says I can't play multiplayer because I'm not registered, but it does not show me a way to register.

I love 42

Play this very often despite parter AI inconsistency. I try to outbid my partner so I can maintain control. The real issue I am
experiencing is a flaw or glitch. I led a certain number and no one else followed suit even though there was still one. Umber out
there in the suit which was laid two trick
