CinchDroid

CinchDroid...a game where turning tricks is encouraged, not illegal.


Cinch is an American card game derived from Pitch via Pedro where you take tricks from your opponent using a standard deck of 52 playing cards. This software is focuses on the version of the game the lead developer learned to play in his home town of Jasper, Indiana. Cinch, a member of the All Fours family and similar to Pitch, may sometimes be known as Double Pedro or High Five.

Available on Google Play

Requirements: Requires Android OS 2.1.x or later.

How do I learn to play?

Eventually we'll add a walkthrough hand, but until then check out How to Play from the main app screen. As a new user, it might also be helpful to turn on the Dim Unplayable Cards setting.

Where can I get support?

We do our best to make sure the app works exactly as it should, but should you have an issue or if you would like to request a feature just let us know! The app makes it easy to send feedback, or send a note to support@badwaterstudios.com

Who am I playing against?

CinchDroid currently only supports a single-player mode, so you're playing against the computer.
