Ratings and Reviews
Best iOS board game implementation I've ever seen
I can't believe how well executed this is and all the little things they added- almost too many to mention. I like the ability to view any past game board state, the score line plot, the emoticons, the voice-overs and music, the scoring, the art, the tutorial, the animated visual cues, the ability to cool-switch between active games by tapping the top right avatar that shows when it's your turn in another game. Mind=Blown!
Fun but fixed
I've been playing this game for a few months now. Although playing against the computer is fun I'm convinced that it's rigged. I'll keep playing it - a game is quick and fun - but be prepared for some occasional astounding frustration with the cards your computer opponent is dealt.
Really, no iPad version?
3 generations in and people are still making iPhone only apps? Shame on you. Had I realized that I would never have bought this app. Maybe they should change it to read "developed for iPhone/iPod touch" instead of "compatible with iPhone/iPod touch, and iPad."
