iTressette X4 educational

DESCRIPTION

Educational version of the application iTressette X4, to learn, directly by playing, the main tactics of the classic Tressette.

Tressette for four players is one of the most loved, played and debated italian card games. In this version of the application, you can play true games having the possibility to follow the deductions of your partner and of the opponents.

You play in stand alone mode, the other players being simulated via software.

The cards of the simulated players are visible to you only. The other players play as in a normal game of iTressette X4, without “looking at what is in the other players’ hand”. At the end of each trick, the game stops and you have the possibility, if you want, to see the rationales behind the choices of the simulated players (rationals and justifications are in italian only). When it is your turn to play, you can ask for a “motivated” suggestion about the card to play. The suggestion is in italian but the suggested card and the relevant declaration, if any, are highlighted for an easy identification.
