Exactly like board game, but better
This plays and scores just like the board game, only better. In two player, only one person can collect resources in a given area but both can hunt for food. I haven't tested with more than 2 players.
Both my husband and I own this. There is a little lag while playing via wifi but that's fine. Very fast when playing against computer.
The only issue I've had is not being able to use wildcard resources to feed people. They have to be converted to resources before the feeding stage.
I LOVE that there's no set up or fiddling with pieces. We do own the board game and have for years but this is easier to pick up and play.
What I've noticed from other ipad board games is sometimes you find out you've been playing it wrong on the physical board game and when you retread the rules it confirms it. This was the case for us with both kingdom builder and even ticket to ride.
Definitely worth purchasing.
Fun app - 5 star potential
I love this game. I play the table-top version all the time. It's got a quick way of getting through, rather than the hour+ it takes normally. For 5 stars, I would need to see a few changes. First, the app rules don't match the normal rules. For instance, you don't count resources for points at the end. This makes a huge difference in how you manage your resources throughout the game! Secondly, in this version, you can't add additional workers to collect resources after everyone has played, even if there are available slots. Once you've placed workers on wood, you can't add any more later, even if there are available slots and everyone else has played. Frustrating.
The AI plays really, really fast. I know they do this to keep the play moving. I wish there was a option to speed up/slow down the AI. This would give me opportunity to strategize and watch, rather than blow through a game in 10 minutes.
Big potential here, but a few changes need to be made.
The criticisms are wrong. This game plays exactly like the board game. I think that theskip2 has been playing the board game wrong.
If you have placed workers in an area, you may not place more workers in the same area later in the round even if spaces are available. This is even true of the food gathering area.
In this version, as in the board game, left-over Rees (except food) count for a point each. In fact, I just lost a game by the differences in left-over resources.
The best thing about this game is that all the math is done for you automatically. This is what really speeds up the game. It is also much easier to check what resources other players have available so you can plan accordingly.
