Based on the game “Gipsy King” from Cwali.
You are a caravan leader, trying to be the gipsy king by placing the caravan in the free lands near the wonderful lakes. After all the lands are filled with caravans, players will score points.
Points are scored for controlling lakes with gold coins and connected caravans groups.
After first round of filling the map, a second round is executed (with some minor changes). The player with the most points after these two rounds, is the winner and is crowned as the Gipsy King.
Can you be that player?
Support for new iOS
- Correct handling of "Pass" command

Ratings and Reviews
Good and very, very quick
There are very few board games that are both strategic and can be played out in a matter of minutes, but Gipsy King fits the bill. While it is graphically a bit sparse, the gameplay is more than adequate. It is a very good value for only one dollar.
One small bug exists in the game, though. The second half of the game is supposed to allow a double placement to take place twice, but the current version does not enforce this and allows more than two doubles. I hope this is addressed in a future update.
Quick and thinky
Gipsy Kings is a fine implementation of the boardgame. It's fun, it's got a decent amount of strategy, it plays quickly, and the AI's pretty good. Great for when you've got five minutes to kill, or ten, or fifteen, or. . .
