I did a careful review of how the scoring system in Oh Hell ScorePad 2 and I've decided to both simplify and be more complete. Nice trick, eh?
The penalty structure for both overbid and underbid have the choices of 0, bid and taken. I know some of you missed being able to use bid for penalty and this new version will fix that. I also saw, frankly bizarre formulas of "Diff" for penalty. I do use the "Taken-Bid" formula for rewards on underbid but never for penalty. Those diff variations will be removed from penalty leaving a simple 3 choices: 0, bid, taken
The reward structure is also being revised for overbid and underbid. Overbid will just have the choice of 0 or Taken. It didn't make sense to reward based on bid. Underbid has those same choices and the third mentioned before of "Taken-Bid". That one is to encourage players who go over to grab everything they can but not reward them so heavily so they try to do so every turn.
The new round structure for how the game is dealt is working out nicely. You can still play the simple 10 to 1 game, up and down the river or even a tournement session where you go up and down several times!
I expect to be submitting this update to Apple in the next few days. Enjoy!
