Default Reiner Knizia's Qin

Hi,

Anyone tried this?

https://itunes.apple.com/app/reiner-knizias-qin/id567859617?mt=8

Looks like an interesting mix of Tigris & Euphrates and Ingenious.

I've never heard of the developer before.

They are also developing Niagara and St. Petersburg.

It's from Reiner Knizia, seems like a Tig&Euf in China?

Seems to be pretty light on rules as well:

I think I'm going to stick with just T&E for now, definitely more interested in St. Petersburg.

30 minutes playing time? Hmmm... Seems very light for a board game.

Good game overall. It's an otherwise solid implementation of QIN but set back by AI that very obviously knows what your hidden pieces are.

I let Elately know and their response was "We'll think about it". Not terribly encouraging when with such a huge oversight they are only thinking about possibly correcting it. Oh well. I will certainly think twice about buying any future games by them if they don't do something about this.

So, should I get this? I have T&E but I am not very good of grasping the game mechanics (i.e. how to win)

This is much simpler than T&E. I recommend it highly, but with this caveat: I play for the single player experience. It appears from Crunc that the online experience has issues. Since that means nothing to me, I can't speak to it.
