Good game play, but lousy multiplayer
Plays just like the board game, and is easy to learn how to use. However, . . .
The online multiplayer setup is poorly organized and managed, particularly with the Stone Age league. You cannot choose your opponent, and you cannot select a time frame for the game you want to play. So a person who wants to play a relatively quick game can be matched against those who want to play a game that lasts for days or weeks. But the biggest problem with the league is that there are glitches. Sometimes, you are unable to play your turns, games are mistakenly resigned, and your player rating gets messed up. I recently lost a game in which I was unable to play my turn for several days, and my rating was dropped way more than it should have been. So after gradually climbing to the top of the leader board, I was bumped way down for no reason. So needless to say, I am done with their "league."
The other annoying thing is that Campfire Creations never responds to emails, so when problems arise, they don't do anything about it. So if you want to play against the computer or friends, or if you do not care about player ratings, the app is ok. But if you want a better experience, get either Agricola or Lords of Waterdeep. Playdek is a far superior company, and these are better board games anyway.
Fun app - 5 star potential
I love this game. I play the table-top version all the time. It's got a quick way of getting through, rather than the hour+ it takes normally. For 5 stars, I would need to see a few changes. First, the app rules don't match the normal rules. For instance, you don't count resources for points at the end. This makes a huge difference in how you manage your resources throughout the game! Secondly, in this version, you can't add additional workers to collect resources after everyone has played, even if there are available slots. Once you've placed workers on wood, you can't add any more later, even if there are available slots and everyone else has played. Frustrating.
The AI plays really, really fast. I know they do this to keep the play moving. I wish there was a option to speed up/slow down the AI. This would give me opportunity to strategize and watch, rather than blow through a game in 10 minutes.
Big potential here, but a few changes need to be made.
Love this game for solo
I love this game for solo play. I've seen some reviews about it not doing so well with multiplayer, but I am really only interested in playing with my board game friends.
As a solo game it is fantastic. The person who said it does not use the same rules plays differently than I have done, it plays with the same rules as I do on the board game, EXCEPT for the counting resources as a point. I never actually tried to make resources a strategy point, they don't seem worth it to me. I aim to have as few as possible, which is a marker for me that I've played efficiently.
I like the fast play. It is true that it is really fast, I hardly can track it as it is going, but you can, at any time, look at what the other players have collected simply by tapping any of their icons to get a chart of all players.
