Love this game!!! ❤️ 💕 💗 📱

I love strategy games. ♟ I love this box game and so I decided to get this, it’s the best! But, the hard level is so hard! I guess I’ll get it eventually, the middle level is sooo easy for me and I really don’t get why the hard level is again, so hard! I really recommend this game for people who like to be challenged, like strategy games, and just simple games in general! This game is one of the only games I like and play! (Yep! It’s really true!) Do again, my only complaint is that the hard level is way too hard! They always win. 😞 If you fix this and make more levels, THANK YOU so much! Five stars if you read and fix this!

Fun but limiting

As far as I can tell, unless you purchase the full version, you can only play the easy version against the computer and you always win easily. There doesn’t seem to be any way to play online despite the fact that it acts as if you can and appears to be searching for an online opponent... forever! I tried to hook it up together to play with a friend to no avail also. Very disappointing...

Love it

This game is supper fun. It can be challenging at times but it seems I always manage to find a way to win or close to win. I would like to make one correction- when we click on a line I would like it to pop up with a sigh that says something like” are you positive you want this line/box” because sometimes I click a different line because They are so close
