Great game!

I like this game a lot. The graphics are nice, and the ads only pop up after a game is completed. That’s reasonable, I think. It freezes sometimes, which is the only reason i knocked off one star. In the “coming soon” screen, it says that this same developer is making a similar app for Senet, a game popular in ancient Egypt. I’ll get that app in a minute if it comes out soon.

Thanks for the review. I am aware of the freezing problem but I haven't manage to find the cause at the moment.
I am indeed making a Senet game (it should be ready in about a month I think. And that's not all :) Ur and Senet are part of a collection of ancient board games that are set to be released this year. You can learn more about it on

Love the depth

You didnt just stop at making this a board game. There are alot of different parts and pieces to keep in interesting. Also nice touch with the cuneiform. Love the art style but if some stuff could get cleaned up visually there is alot going on.

Hi, I am glad you like my interpretation of this ancient game.
I am always happy to improve it so could you contact me directly with some examples of things that should be cleaned up, I'd appreciate it. or Ancient Games' Facebook page (links are in-game in the Menu > Report an Issue)

Love Hate Relationship

This game is a lot of fun. But it’s also the only game I’ve ever played where I find myself screaming obscenities. And then, when I’m playing people live, I’m yelling horrible things about them, at my phone. I don’t even get the satisfaction of them hearing the sh*t I say about them when they send my piece back to the beginning. But I really like the game....the game design is fantastic as well. The customization is a lot of fun. And it’s so cool of the designers that they only play the ads AFTER the game is finished.

Developer Response ,

Ahah, I am doing the same thing when I play! I'll think about adding a "Share obscenities with the other player" button :)
I am glad you're enjoying my version of the game. I am not a big fan of ads (but if I want to keep making those free games, I don't really have a choice) so having them interrupt game sessions wasn't even an option.
