Based on BGG Entry: Tichu

Notes: BGG user Christopher Holdren (MystcMage) sends Android users a valentine with the February 14th announcement in the forums of his release of Tichu available for Android devices. Supports both phones, and tablets in stretch or zoom mode. According to the in app FAQ, there are multiplayer capabilities in works. Note this app has a different look and feel, and is not a port of the Tichu app for iOS done by Steve Blanding, but this is the official app for Android licensed and authorized by the publisher, Fata Morgana Spiele.

App Description wrote:

The popular card game comes to Android to test your strategic thinking skills The popular card game Tichu is now available on your Android device!

Tichu is a strategic partnership card game whose goal is to be the first to use all of your cards.
It may seem like a simple game, but ask any Chinese bus driver and he'll tell you it is a challenge for beginners and experts alike.

Your computer opponents will pull no punches, calling Tichu or Grand Tichu nearly 90% of the time.
They also look for ways to go out at every opportunity.
This does not mean the gameplay is incredibly slow.
The computer players will go as fast or slow as you can handle.
If the difficulty proves to be too much, you can turn on the in-game hints and a view of your opponents cards to see why they make the plays they do.
Whatever your skill level, you will find Tichu to be a fun and challenging game!
Post any bugs/suggestions at and I will have a look.
