Edit: My first reaction to this new version was poor and boy was I wrong. Been test playing it to death for the last week and must say the new AI is brilliant! My partner is actually an asset now. Hands down my favorite App of all time, I say this because I play it several times everyday and never gets old. -End edit 02/17/11
Beautiful, elegant, and genius in it's simplicity while still being very strategic and hard to master. AI could be better at times and while adjusting skill levels can help it still isn't perfect but few AI ever is great. Haven't played against real people yet but that would probably make the experience perfect. Can't really say enough good things about this game. I have a stupid amount of really good games on my OS but this is the only one I play every day and don't see that changing anytime soon.
A great game gorgeously brought to iOS

Tichu - The maker of the iDevice version of Mu (one of the best iDevice games around) is back with a lush implementation of the gamer-geek obsession called Tichu. Few card games have captured hardcore gamer attention like this ladder-climbing game that has always confused me because of its similarity to Daihimi (which I’ve played thousands of hands of) and Gang of Four (certainly in the hundreds prior to my learning Tichu). You play card combos and other people play higher ones until you run out.
Simple enough, huh? No, it’s a deeply mannered game with four special cards and the option to bid extra points if you think you’ll go out first during the current round. Steve Blanding has reused the smart user interface of Mu, which nicely packages the card game experience; choices are just what you expect. I challenge you to find something unintuitive about his designs. This is a hallmark of Apple products (‘it just works!’) and Blanding has it down pat. Should you opt for the AI player experience, you will definitely find yourself yelling at your partner for aggressive Tichu calls followed by often less-than-aggressive play but the real way to enjoy this game is by playing a linked game. It is simple to link up when you don’t have cards handy. While I still advocate play of the AI for building your experience (and Blanding’s tutorials/tips are terrific), the game shines most when played against live players. Tichu is available for both the iPhone and iPad; it looks particularly nice on the latter in landscape mode. A big winner and something you should already have downloaded...
A 5* Board Game come to App Store
If you familiar with board games this is one of my top 3 board game on my list. And now it come to App Store ! ! No reason not to buy it ! Despite it was my favorite game, I rate for 5* also because of it great art work and design on the app. Try it, I play this game with friends ever week over last years, and now I bring this card game with me to anywhere. Try ! It's not a game for everyone but it's worth trying because you might be crazy about it XD
