Almost perfect

UPDATE (4 stars to 3 stars):
-- Latest updates fix some async issues, but have made the game sluggish and crashy. Wife and I could not finish our game.

A great adaptation of a massive board game to iOS, with a few quibbles:
-- Async works, but it is difficult/impossible to tell what the other players did between turns.
-- Chat does not persist between sessions.
-- Lack of color blind options. Not a problem for me, though sometimes the pink and orange look very close to each other.
-- Space battles require too many clicks.
-- Research discounts are not clear (even after playing through the tutorial). This discount is already computed, which is a good thing. So I don't understand why the research icons show little discount markers above them.
-- The minus signs for Advanced Robotics and Quantum Grid were confusing. In the board game these were plus signed because you gain influence tokens.

That may seem like a long list, but they are really minor things. Very much looking forward to the expansion!!!

Newest update influence problems

Most of the game works fine but whenever I'm using the influence action it seems I can't influence empty hexes that I'm next to and it really messes up the game

Update Made Game Worthless

On an iPad 4, game no longer runs as I cannot get past the game setup screen. Human or AI selections will not load into available slots, then game simply locks up. I do not know which recent update caused this mess, Eclipse or Apple, but game is useless now.....
