Fantastic game!!!

Ever since this game came out I have become addicted!!! It's so much fun and there is so much depth to the gameplay with a combination of strategy skill and luck. I think this game is among the best mobile games out there and I would recommend it to anyone


I got this game after seeing that my friend got it I thought it looked really cute. So I got it on my iPad and it keeps crashing!!! It is sooooo frustrating! I got it from the Apple price drop if you don't know what that is it is a App that lowers the price of Apps. Get Apple Price drop it is cool.


Outstanding! Love the graphics! So much fun to play!! I highly recommend it!! ❤
