Customer Reviews

Core game is great

The game is easy to learn, fun, and interesting to play with AIs. Perfect quick and thoughtful boardgaming from a master of the craft. The app is nice-looking and pretty well-implemented to boot. No idea why more people aren't playing and rating this; it's definitely worth the admission price and more.

I haven't had a chance to try the multiplayer recently; hopefully the most recent version solved the connection difficulties.

Not optimized for iPhone 6 plus

Love this game and was really excited to see the port onto iOS. However when I open it on the iPhone 6 plus the screen goes black. By randomly pressing I can see high scores, etc but I can't begin a new game. An app that doesn't work unfortunately.

Pretty but a disappointment.

I had hopes for this game, but as with others from this designer it's skewed towards the AI completely.

You always have to start first and with that the game will get first scores almost immediately. Once that occurs you're done.

If you enjoy being a constant loser give it a try. At least it will save you from spending a chunk on the overpriced board game. But at least with that you can modify who gets to play first!

This game is a pass.
