Customer Reviews


I was looking for a turn-based strategy game that I can play for 10 minutes at a time, or keep me entertained on a long flight, and this fits the bill perfectly. I thought it was a bit too challenging at first, even on “easy” games, but now that I have the hang of it, I win about 25% of the time, which keeps me coming back for another try.
The game offers a ton of variation. You can try numerous strategies, the AI isn’t predictable, and the variety of cards make every game unique.
My only wish is that the easy mode was a little easier, especially for a first-time player.

Bought the app to teach me how to play

My husband loves board games. I enjoy them as long as I understand them. The rules to this game confused me resulting in the game sitting on the shelf for over a year. This app continues to teach me new strategies and techniques without the frustration of having my husband tell me I am too slow. Once I understand it completely I will kill my husband while playing. Takes the frustration out of learning (to an extent as it took me two days to beat easy). Addiction and fun as all board games should be!

Amazing but multiplayer needs to work on cellular

This app is brilliantly designed and makes playing this game with friends an absolute joy. It is by far the best app board game I’ve ever played.

The support for the app is also fantastic. There is a current issue where the multiplayer doesn’t work over IPv6 which is affecting myself and I’m sure other users - but they have let me know they are working on it and expect a fix soon.
