Description of challenge doesn't match actual success criteria
Just played the easy Salt Lake City challenge and could not figure out how I failed to "connect all the tiles". Searching online, I found a post from the company founder stating that all the suburb tiles needed to also be connected. The text setting up the challenge make no mention of this and make it impossible to win if you don't know that. I would have thought that a board game designer would use more precise instructions. Only buy this if you're looking for a game that doesn't tell you how to win and you love fumbling blindly trying to figure out the rules.
Love the game. App needs work though.
I like this game a lot but the app needs some work. I'm constantly getting error messages in online multiplayer...the latest being "bad argument #-1 to ?" What the heck does that mean? It's also really confusing to challenge/host my friends. I always end up player random players which is fine but I had hoped it would be simple like in the Carcassonne app. I'll continue to play because I love the game and already purchased it but I hope it will be improved soon.
The interface is probably a nightmare to learn if you don't know the board game well, but if you do it is excellent and provides a great Suburbia experience. It must have been a complicated game to port to iOS, and they did a great job. Engrossing and fun.
