Another Tichu Milestone

No screen shot this time (since it would look just like the ones I posted yesterday) but I thought this was worth mentioning.

Last night at game night, Adam (on his iPad) and Kai (on my iPhone) teamed up against me (on my iPad) and Becky, an AI player. Becky and I won 1075 to 625! Yet another encouraging sign for the AI! Becky still made a few questionable plays but she's getting better. We'll whip her into shape yet.

The three-way link worked flawlessly. No dropped connections. No state corruption. Just perfect! I was very pleased.

Last Night's Tichu Game

That screen shot up there is the result of a game I played against the AI on my iPad. As you can see, the AI isn't doing all that badly! It still makes some mistakes here and there but on a good day it can play an interesting game, and even occasionally beat me. In this particular game, I only just managed to pull out the win.

And for those of you who wondered if this will also be coming to the iPhone and iPod touch, well here's another screen shot for you:

It's still too early to announce a definite release date yet but if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say that it's likely to be sometime this fall. But don't hold me to that.
