What's New in Version 1.72
Restored the ability to play against game center friends in most recent versions of iOS.
Simply a great game!
Worth the purchase! If you like the Lost Cities card game and can't get your family to play with you all the time, definitely pick up this digital version.
I was tired of all those low quality free games and games that make you wait long periods to play again. I can play this one as much as I want, however I want, wherever I want. No internet connection required so I can play on the plane.
I loved the Xbox version and this one for iPhone is even better. You can tell a lot of time, quality, and testing went into this game. The UX design is very professional, down to the detail of the parallax effect in menus just like the iOS home screen. I thought about writing this game for myself because I couldn't find it on any online marketplaces anymore and I am impressed how they fit the game into the small form factor. It plays very well on the phone. Please make an iPad version though!
Great game, terrible server stability
My wife and I love this game and at times have had games going asynchronously for months on end. The problem is, it is inconsistent in giving notifications when it is your turn. Sometimes you have neither the badge or a notification and the only way you find out is your opponent tells you. But even then, sometimes you take a turn and it doesn't register. I've taken the same turn a dozen times before it actually sends. Sometimes I take the same turn dozens of times only to give up and remake the game. When you try to rematch after a finished game it often confuses takes a day or two for the game to actually start. My wife and I will look at our phones and both hit rematch only to see one or both of our phones saying that you are waiting for your opponent to decide. Just buggy and has been for a LOOONNGG time. Not a recent problem, but a constant for a few years.
Game great, but UI issues
As I just lost a game due to the poor UI, I feel obliged to post. When it's your turn and the cards are larger, they're still too close together and so far too easy to grab the wrong card. It's also far too easy to place a card in the play (instead of discard) pile.
Additionally, a badge on the app icon telling you it's your turn is really needed.
