    I picked this up for 99 cents in December.

    Great game, some say it is way too easy, but personally I've yet to beat the CPU! :mad:

    My logic for playing must be off, as he seems to get me every time. :p

    I'd recommend it, it's a great game.

    I love when games that I've been eyeballing become free. :)
    I'll definitely be playing this later.

    Yeah, Mek, that sh!t is annoying, however,don't be suprised to see threads started by me in the future w/o screenies and links. I am predominately on iPhone since I travel for a living. Although I will mostly be a little more articulate than some in my judgement.

    And I give props to our mods, Salsamd had those things added to my last thread within moments last time

    Thanks for the heads up. About to put this on my device in a few.

    And yes, our mods are pretty good with editing-in links and other media to a lot of bare topics.
     
  14. Any game that is decent and has local wifi is worth $2 maybe $3. This game is a classic from 1942 and many variations have spawned from it. I just added this today to my list of best boardgames and saw it was $1 and was like wow great deal. Definitely pick this up for free if you haven't already.

    I've had this game for a little while now. One of my favorite parts is the intense music.

    I think that maybe I don't quite understand the game though. It seems to make a big deal about how going first is some big advantage. Seems pretty random to me.

    I've beaten the computer a handful of times, but I'm still not sure of the "strategy" that is spoke of in one of the App Store reviews. I can't seem to pin down a specific "way" to win, especially when I can predict 99.999% of time time where the computer is going to go. It's predictable, but yet I can't figure out what to do with the information. It can get kind of frustrating, actually.

    Still, it's an interesting game, and at least it feels rewarding when you finally win one.

    Haha, I feel the same.


    Exactly! You can tell what's going to happen, but figuring out what to do with this information is nerve wracking.

    I know you have to beat the CPU at it's own game, but it seems the CPU is always a step ahead! :mad:

    This is fun especially for a free game. I beat the computer on easy (11by11) so far and I'm surprised they dropped the price so much.

    I'm curious as to the rationale behind making a game free temporarily, especially one that seems to be at least reasonably well made. Is the idea to ramp up the number of people buying and rating it, thus increasing the paid sales later on?

    Please enlighten me.

    I just downloaded this and played a quick game against "Buzzy" and I won! Whoo hoo :p
    With that being said, means I will probably never win another game on this again. :D

    More downloads, more possible reviews. More 4/5 star reviews, more income later on.

    Yea, you got the right idea.

    Of course, it could also backfire and result in multiple 1-star uninstall reviews.
