What's New in Version 2.1
-Optimized initialization of Game Center games
-Bugfix: Player colors will no longer be switched in some situations during turn-based online games
Programming flaws lately...
I noted it a couple of times and thought it was my imagination...but it happened again tonight and this time there was no mistake. The computer opponent is playing imaginary cards. I know this because he only had one card and I carefully checked the direction he could play before I moved. This is a major technique, knowing where your opponent can place markers. In the case I am relating he not only played in a direction that was impossible--he kept his single card! In other words he played an imaginary card that wasn't even on the board.
This game is great when playing against human opponents. The game is quick, easy to teach and learn, and fun for a wide variety of board game players. It's also the only affordable way to get an otherwise out of print game.
I recommend staying away if you're a solo player, though. The game has 3 AI difficulty levels and the easiest one is nigh impossible to conquer!
One of my favorite games
Very original game, beautifully implemented, whether you play online, or the multiple scenarios against the AI.
