Submitted by kyru on Wed, 06/25/2014 - 00:07

Several weeks ago a new update for Chipper went out.

The update added a bidding help button to the main game as well as a standalone Bid Helper that allows you to select 6 cards and see bid estimates for that hand. Also updated the bidding algorithm to lower No Trump estimates, you should see AI bidding of No Trump go down significantly.

I sent an update to Chipper up to the Play Store today. It fixed several issues, changed some things, and added one nice new feature.

The new feature is a Quick Play button when you are passing on a hand, it speeds up the play of the AI players so you don't have to wait as long to get to the next hand. This can speed up gameplay a great deal and get you back into the game even faster then before.

Full changelog is on the game page here.

Chipper Released

I just today put out my latest game: Chipper. Chipper is 4 person trick-taking card game that is largely played in the region I grew up around west-central Wisconsin. If you are not from there this game probably isn't that interesting, but give it a try anyways.

I've wanted to make a game for this for a long time, with many aborted efforts over the years. I finally buckled down and got it done for Android. The AI was the funnest part to write for it simply because getting it to bid and play correctly required going over how I play myself.

I wanted to get a version out now so that I have something out there. Future versions will hopefully add more features included saving and resuming games in progress as well as more variety in the ability of the AI to play the game.

Chipper is available for free on the Google Play store
