Scala 40 ROCKS


I have enjoyed Scala 40 for quite sometime now. Playing Scala 40 is challenging and fun. I only wish there was more of a community to play Scala 40 online live games. Being able to play against live competition more would make this game even more exciting. Maybe add some more fun options like different decks, and in game options (being able to pull from the discard pile if there's only one card on that pile), and having a resonate profile with names and emojis/pictures. Other than that great game ✌🏾️

Developer Response

Hello Thad2sana,
There are many Italian players, while few in America, you’ll find more online players from 18:30 to 23:00 Italian time (CET)

There are some options to configure the game, a few related to the deck aspect and many others related to game rules, including the discard pile one you are requesting. Your player name (nickname) can be modified in the Game Center configuration which is accessibile from the Settings app.

Have a nice day

Fun to play but too many people do not finish the game. They should be penalized. No mention of that in the rules.

Developer Response

Hello TrvInut1,
you're right some people interrupt the online game,
if they interrupt normally by pressing the stop button they are already penalized.
If the turn of their network there is no way to understand which of the players closed the network, so the solution for this would be to assign a penalty to all players. In case you have some ideas at this subject and want to evaluate about it with me, please write at the technical support form the Help -> Feedback / Contacts menu
