Ratings and Reviews
Great Version of a Great Game
This electronic version of the table game is brilliantly done. My family played the table version constantly when we all lived near one another. Now that we're apart physically, we can still play Qwirkle! Actually, to tell the truth, we play more than before because with this iteration there is no set up or clean up, no need to clean off a table or other large surface area, and players don't even need to all be free at the same time!
So, why only four stars? My only problem with this great app is that the notifications system doesn't always work. For example, I do usually get an initial notification that it's my turn, but there's no number on the app itself indicating how many games I have turns in. This means that after I get the original notification and ignore it because I'm busy, there's no number reminder to let me see that it's my turn like so many other multiplayer apps do. This may seem like no big deal, but I play several asynchronous games with my friends and family in my scarce spare time, and without those numbers working correctly, I resort to loading the game to see if it's my turn or not.
Again, this is only a very small annoyance and should not prevent anyone from purchasing and enjoy this excellent adaptation of a fabulous family game.
Great with a couple suggestions
This a great app. It’s fun and plays just like the regular game. For those who have trouble being able to connect with your friends... it took us a little while to figure out but we got it: make sure your Game Center is turned on. That’s for iPhone users; sorry, not sure about Androids. Two suggestions... 1)The app is great about letting you know it’s your turn if you’re not currently in the game. But if you are in the game playing you have to watch the screen to know when it’s your turn. There needs to be some sort of sound effect to let you know it’s your turn even when the game is open. This is helpful when you’re trying to play and do other things at the same time. 2) Create a chat feature inside the game. That way if you want to comment on your friend’s move you can do so without getting out of the game. Otherwise it’s great. One criticism though... when we were having trouble with the initial setup and I kept trying to click on the support link it just took me to the Oriental Trading site. Don’t include a support link if there’s no actual support. It’s just frustrating. That said, I highly recommend this game for those who love Quirkle. 😊
Good, hopefully will get better
Happy someone made a Qwirkle game app. I enjoy playing it and recommend it to others, but it has some minor issues.
There needs to be a “next game” button to move to the next unplayed online game. When you’re playing a bunch of online games the list gets long and some of the games are hidden; you can scroll down but it’s not obvious enough that you can, so some people forget the games that are out of sight.
There should be a way to turn off the opening move suggestion feature. Once you know how to play that’s just annoying.
It has one little glitch: if I’m playing online games and then move to local games it won’t let me start a new game. The board goes blank, no pieces. I have to close the game and reopen to start a new local game.
And finally, notifications don’t work for it.
