The legendary game (Board Game of The Year 1989 Germany, over one million sold) is back, a fun and challenging strategic board game for iPhone and iPad!

Using the officially licensed caricatures from the original board game, you'll find that not every guest wants to sit next to each other in Café International. So it's up to you to keep everyone happy, by seating them at the right tables, according to their nationality and gender to score maximum points.

Every puzzle fan will simply love Café International! Although the rules are straightforward and the game is easy to play, it's sure to challenge even the most strategically gifted minds. To be awarded maximum points, you'll need to clear as many tables as possible by really thinking about where to seat your randomly chosen guest cards...

Café International is packed with endless fun - it's the perfect way to test your strategic might against friends, family and colleagues!

Strategically place international guests at tables to earn points
Optimized graphics for new iPad and iPhone 5 with full Retina support
Quick tutorial for an easy start
Help function for when you need visual clues
Choose from Multiplayer, Solitaire, Classic or Time Game
Add up to four players in Classic mode
Challenge against up to 3 computer opponents each with 3 levels of skill
Play friends, family and meet new people around the world through turn-based online gaming (asynchronous multiplayer) via Gamecenter (iOS 5 or newer)
Game Center integration for worldwide high score and achievements

For an optimal adaptation to your iPad or iPhone, we blended the most popular rules of the boardgame and the cardgame to a great new playing experience. With a medium-sized and variable floorplan, this version offers not only the best possible overview about the available tables, but also revives all the well-known elements of the boardgame, like the bar and the Jokers.

A month has passed: Any news on multiplayer?

I have been waiting to pull the trigger until multiplayer was added. I wonder if it will go on sale on the 29th to celebrate the new version.

But then we couldn't afford all the champaign we need for celebration

No, seriously: I am sure you'll find the multiplayer alone worth the value of a Big Mac menu, and you can enjoy it much longer. Let alone all the other features on board

You may consider that you are going to need a considerable base player online to be a great experience, and people would buy the game with a sale (like him or like me).

Just saying!

Heavy Devil is my latest game, check it out! AppStore GooglePlay

I don't think that I am necessarily an expert in playing (unless you believe in conspiracy theory of developer favoring his own player somehow by dealing better cards ). I just played some first automatches, and lost them all

I think there are already plenty of better skilled people out there and automatching, so if you have no friends to invite, just try it (maybe we meet ;-)

Multiplayer update's out! I should have bought this months ago. It's the kind of board game with rules and gameplay that are easy to pick up, but that still require foresight and strategy to win.
