The legendary game (Board Game of The Year 1989 Germany, over one million sold) is back, a fun and challenging strategic board game for iPhone and iPad!

Using the officially licensed caricatures from the original board game, you'll find that not every guest wants to sit next to each other in Café International. So it's up to you to keep everyone happy, by seating them at the right tables, according to their nationality and gender to score maximum points.

Every puzzle fan will simply love Café International! Although the rules are straightforward and the game is easy to play, it's sure to challenge even the most strategically gifted minds. To be awarded maximum points, you'll need to clear as many tables as possible by really thinking about where to seat your randomly chosen guest cards...

Café International is packed with endless fun - it's the perfect way to test your strategic might against friends, family and colleagues!

• Strategically place international guests at tables to earn points
• Optimized graphics for new iPad and iPhone 5 with full Retina support
• Quick tutorial for an easy start

Fantastic and puzzler solo and in multiplayer

Lord do I love this app and the real game. If you like a game that is laid back, easy to play, but is a strategic game that does the math and rules for you in a playful way, give this a go—there’s a reason it won awards in real life (and is still in print). A great game and a wonderful digital version that has a dedicated solo mode included with it. Try closing two tables at once and pick up major points.

Very well-done app, great game

This is a very clever card game. Super easy to learn and play, but it does take some strategic thinking.

I play solo, and I love that there are different options for solo: solitaire, or against the AI, which is very smart.

Everything works flawlessly. And I appreciate the fair price with no ads or IAP. I’m glad there are good developers like this out there.

This is one of my favorite phone card games now.

The only thing to be aware of is, on a phone, the flag icons on the cards are very small. Once you’re more familiar with the cards, however, that becomes less of an issue. Still, many people would probably prefer this on an iPad, especially if eyesight is an issue.

Thanks for a great game!

Awesome implementation

Of a great card game version of a cool board game. Asynchronous play works great, too!
