    Gotta say, I never expected this game to go free. Everyone should get it now if they haven't yet.

    The iPhone version doesn't appeal to me (with how it's set out) but I'm downloading the iPad one now, thanks guys!

    Thanks. I had the iPad version for a *long* time, though didn't play it much yet. Grabbed the iPhone one, then, hopefully I'll manage to play a bit on the go.

    A question here: can this be played as asynchronous multiplayer?

    Is there the Red expansion on iPhone? I seem to be able to start a Red campaign, though I haven't bought anything?

    I'm curious about this as well -

    I"ve never played, so I have no idea - On the iPhone, if you start a Red campaign, does it actually start a red campaign, or does it just default back to the original campaign if you haven't bought the Red IAP in another version/build of the game? I don't see any IAP, so if not, is there any way to buy the Red campaign in the iPhone version, or do you need to own another copy of the game?

    My understanding is that the Red campaign is included in the iPhone version, free of charge, since there is no IAP in the game.

    Yes, there is asynchronous multiplayer, however remember that this simply means everyone are making their turns at one because it's turn based. The pace is the same; you still have to wait for your opponent to make their turn.

    Has any of you actually confirmed this? I can't distinguish between the regular and red campaign, so...

    Also, didn't the Red upgrade feature co-op multiplayer online? Where can I test that?

    The last line of the App Store description says:

    - If you already own the Red expansion, these features will be available to you via your existing account

    So my guess is that you need to have bought the red campaign in another edition (PC/ iPad) to be able to play it.
