Love This Game!

I used to play Machiavelli when I was a kid, and loved it. I haven’t played it in literally decades, so I was happy to find this game in the App Store.

There are tons of customization options for gameplay, and the game runs smoothly.

Definitely worth the purchase to remove ads and support the developer. Highly recommend!!

I like it but...

I can’t access the option to contact you, the developer, because the game keeps freezing and quitting after allowing me to play one round! Not sure how else to get in touch with you directly!

... the latest version is now freezing upon startup, loses my progress, and oftentimes just quits. This has only been happening a few days, but I cannot find anywhere else to make this comment. The link to their web site brings you to a page that doesn’t appear to include a help button. So, I’m not going to keep using this until it is fixed.

Additionally, the computer play in general is pretty strange. Cards are added and rearranged in such a way as to look like there’s so much going on when in fact sometimes the existing melds remain the same, with must a small resultant change. I find that excessive shifting of cards distracting.

Otherwise, this is an interesting and challenging game.

Write an email to

There will be an update in the next few days resolving the problem you are encountering, thank you toll for your patience

To contact technical support just open the help menu and scroll to the Contact Us option

You are right carda movements can be exaggerated
Now you see the evolution of computer reasoning that make various choices while evaluating its moves, in the future I'll try to address this

The game strength instead is auto balancing on your strength and probably you are quite strong, I can check this if you contact me directly from the game using the 'Feedback/Contact us' option of the Help menu.

thank you for your feedback

Great game

I play the game a lot and really enjoy it. I have played even befor I had an electronic option, BUT since the last update the jokers will “stick” to the card next to it.....extremely annoying.

Touch and drag to move a single card, touch WAIT and drag tuo move a group of compatibile cards . You can change this from Menu -> Settings -> Gestures options
