  • A Problem Sep 17, 2017

    By SirAfrica
    I purchased game and Mountains expansion and everything went fine but then when I tried to purchase one of the maps it took my money, confirmed the purchase, but then said it was invalid and did not make the map available. Press on app support and there is no clear way to reach them. Game is good but how do you reach app support to report a problem??? When there are problems reaching app support I cannot give it a 4 or 5 star rating. Game was fixed and I gave it 5 stars but after recent update it immediately crashes to desktop on my iPAD with 500mb free space running IOS 10.3.3 each time I hit play. Still hard to contact support when you hit app support. The app is again 5 stars. The game is a lot of fun. And I must say that their support response to problems has been quick and efficient. They seem genuinely concerned with producing the best product possible and you cannot ask for more

    great digital implementation of the game. really enjoying it. bought everything in their sale, i persoanlly think paying their full asking price is too much. perhaps controversial, but could be interesting to have an option to extend games by a turn or two, see how it plays differently (perhaps a new feature for developers to think about). the catan app did this by offering you the option to extend the game to 11 or 12pts - added a bit of variety to the game play

    While many civilization building games are marathons, this one is more like a 100 yard dash. You play cards to gain resources, which you have to balance, and choose actions from city building, raising troops, moving your troops, naval movement, destroying enemies, etc. the objective is to control regions of the board and preferably continents which you do by gaining a majority. You have a limited number of turns and curren$y to work with, and often the game is over before you know it, generally 10 minutes or so. These limitations make a quick play, but they also mean that each movie has to be thought about pretty carefully, because you don’t have time to waste. Well done!

    MY FAVORITE ANDROID GAME!! Takes a great deal of strategy! The limited number of turns per player makes this a more intense game than many I've played which involve 300 turns per player. Condensing all of those down to under a dozen turns per player makes each one count all the much more. I have considered a move more intensely playing this game than I have with many other strategy/board/card games. The different maps, expansion, and game variants make this my all-time favorite 5-star game!

    I like civilization games but my schedule doesn’t allow for long gaming sessions. This game is perfect for people like me who like the genre but only have time for shorter games. I’m so glad to have stumbled upon this one! This is very well designed and user friendly. The rule book is a fast and clear read, and between that and a tutorial game you’re good to go. The AI seems balanced to me and I’m enjoying playing against it. Even though the games are brief the strategy is deep enough to keep it interesting without being overbearing. The perfect balance for a sort-of casual gamer like me. I’m glad the game board allows for easy zooming, because even on a large phone the map and icons are small. But the zoom function here is well done and very helpful for people like me who wear glasses. I find the pricing fair for a game of this quality. I’m glad there are good developers like this one and am happy to support their monetization model. Thank you, developers!

    Really like this game. Has more depth and strategy than you might guess at first glance. One thing I would love to see fixed, can we get a custom icon for the notifications and not just a square? It isn't that hard to make that a custom icon.
  • Multi-player needs work. Mar 23, 2018

    By BrChuck
    This a fine, faithful adaptation of a very good board. I would easily add another two stars to my review when the following issues are addressed. Most importantly there are no time limits in an asynchronous game. This means when a player abandons a game, the game goes into limbo. I have two such games hanging as I write this post. Secondly, there does not appear to be a way to set a specific numbers of players in a multi-player game. So if I want to create a three player game, I have to be constantly watching the game lobby to start the game when the desired number of players join. I’m certain the developers will address this in a forthcoming update and I will happily revise the game’s rating at that time.

    Amazing async game. If you have a few friends this is a great casual game to play with friends. The short nature means even a long game only takes a few days!
  • Map pack issues Sep 16, 2017

    By Pilotboy172
    Good game! 5 stars. However... Prior to their map pack bundle, I purchased two of the four maps at full price. Now, with the bundle, I am not able to "complete the bundle" for the last two maps at the discounted price. I need to purchase them at full price.

  • Fun game, but full of micro transactions Oct 26, 2017

    By NinjaDeathStrike
    This game is intuitive and fun, but I’m afraid it’s not really worth the price of admission. I’m a primarily single player gamer and enjoy games that are still fun offline. Here, $5 gets you two maps. Everything else, including more maps or options cost additional money. I feel like I paid $5 for a demo version and not a full game.

    By Rustybolts K Pears
    A bit of a rip off, gameplay is excellent. It can be played in a very short space of time although the strategic nuances involved are deep and engaging and will take some mastery which adds to its longevity. However despite being a good game it also commands a premium price for a mobile game, which does not unlock the full game. This would not be so bad however if more content was unlocked from the offset ( only 2 maps are available), but what really adds to the feeling of being ripped off from this initial outlay are the exorbitant prices of the unlocks, which only unlock a singular map or gameplay change. To fully unlock this game would command a price in the excess of the most expensive premium android games and in the region of a full priced pc title. This is a huge shame as this really could have been great if not for the greed of the devs. Even with most recent update with the edition of a map pack for purchase does little to help the purchaser to not feeling ripped off as too little is offered from the initial outlay. What you are getting is a demo, of which you have to pay full price for, then you are then asked to outlay the same again to get the complete game. It would have been better to include more content and lower costing addons or all the content for the initial price, or offer the basic game as free with the content costing, as it is its a...Huge ripoff.

    By Fartinglsutiger
    I have all the board games. This game is awesome I especially like the multiplayer. Little discombobulated about paying $5 for mountains which has negligible general effect on the game but just consider it a helping fund the developers for making an iOS version.

  • Pretty Much Perfect Mar 5, 2021

    By ph349397
    Could Acram just take over all digital board game design? The UI is insanely polished. I’ve played the game about a dozen times in 24 hours and I’m ready to take on higher AI difficulty. Edit: one thing I can’t stand about online multiplayer is that you can’t add AI players to a multiplayer game. Seems like this could be done and would make it easier for two people to play online multiplayer but not have to resort to a two player game.
  • Nice quick game Sep 17, 2017

    By rktca
    This is a fun, quick game. Make sure to turn off the high speed frames per second, it absolutely eats battery and I cannot see a difference. Text is usually too tiny, especially on my SE. Some of the button placement could be more convenient, and stronger indicators for when your movement is complete would be nice. E.g. Move the end turn button to the upper right where it's easier to press, and next to the indicator for remaining moves (which I didn't even notice for a while). Also make it bigger, why are the buttons so tiny? In general it seems like there is dead space on screen so I wish it could be used more efficiently. I'd have to think about how to make that happen though.
  • Multiplayer could use some enhancement. Nov 25, 2017

    By Trocergian
    Fun game but in multiplayer none of us get any turn notifications (asynchronous games) and you don't get any indication something was added to the room message board. Not showstoppers but definitely irritants to an otherwise fun experience.

    By Rebekah Witherspoon
    Love this board game, and the app is well done. Purchased the $4.99 map expansion pack, and it was worth the money, because each map has different rules variations. The only issue is that this app is a battery killer. ***Please add an option to turn off animations to save battery.***
  • Fun for what it is Feb 20, 2018

    It's a well done little conquest game done with cards. It's limited but there's real skill involved in winning which I like. It's also quick, for those times you want a lighter games.
  • Great game, kills battery Nov 26, 2017

    The game is really fun and well done. I just wish it didn't drain my battery so much. It is such a problem that I can't play as much as I'd like.

    Mechanically it is similar to the board game but judging by the name and designer I was expecting the actual board game not a modified version. Would get a refund since this version is a bit simpler than the original game.
  • Sep 17, 2017

    By DARREN BUTLER
    LOVE the gameplay and the graphics. The AI is challenging. 1.99 to unlock each extra map and 1.99 to unlock mountain expansion seems a steep after paying 5 bucks for the app itself. The addition of a 5.00 option for all the maps make it a little less hard to swallow buying extras after. So for an additional 7.00 (amount rounded up) you can unlock all maps and mountain expansion.
