Great Game - Invite a Friend Doesn't Work Smoothly!


Firstly, this is a great game and playing against the computer opponents works perfectly.

That siad, we bought this game so that we could play on multiple devices within our home. The game is supposed to let you do that over the new apple implementation of game center that uses messaging; This just doesn't work easily!

We got it working once, after much difficulty, where more often than not it drops you in a live game with some random online opponent instead of the firend you are inviting. It now no longer works at all. It states we are in a game but it is waiting for the other opponent to decide on a rematch; selecting yes just drops out to the main screen.

Since aplle have recently been attempting to self-destruct with there implementation of hardware and software "improvement", it may be that resolving this is currently outside of the developers control.

Very nice implementation

I've been really enjoying this app - the graphics are great, the gameplay is quick and the AI opponents are well balanced.

The one thing missing from this game, and it's a real shame, is the ability to play a "pass and play" game.

If that were added it would earn its fifth star!

Great game, dodgy skill awarding


I love this game, as does my wife. We're both addicted to playing it, both against each other and the AI. I highly recommend it, it's well worth the price; we even own the physical version.

AI is where the game is a let-down. After many hours playing I'm convinced that the algorithm used for awarding skill points at the end of the game is skewed. Time and again, if I win against the AI with a whopping score (say +79 to -14 in my favour), I'll get a skill increase of a paltry 2.1% and the AI loses only 1.3%. But if the AI wins - even on a close win (say 23 to 20 against me), the AI is awarded a whopping 5.4% skill and I lose a massive 5.1%.

This has happened numerous times - both to me and my wife, and we are both experienced players. We've analysed the board after the game but still cannot understand how the game is making the skill award decisions. Clearly the skill awarding is heavily weighted in the AI's favour.

If the makers could either explain why the skill award is like this, or fix it, then this would be a rare 5-star game.
