I'm gunna go ahead and repost the end of my last long post cause I feel as if it got over looked and I need some honest feed back before I purchase. So here's my question...

Say I never got big into card games like this. I played some TCG's back in the day and have been loving Yu Gi Oh BAM until the last update made it slow. Would I like a card game like this or should I look elsewhere? The deck building I really love, but I also enjoy collecting new cards to try strategy wise. I know there is no collecting in this, but could that be over looked because of the deck building?

Thanks guys, again.

It's a fun game but, much like Penny Arcade, realize you are working with a pretty small card base. Each game will feature some 7 cards always available and then another 10 taken randomly from a set of 16. Other than the Private Maids (all 10 are unique and you're only shown a random 2 at a time), you and your opponents are working from the identical set of cards to choose from in the game so the differences in your decks are often pretty subtle.

I read this while on a crowded train, mostly comprised of men, and none of them were looking at "x-rated mangas." Compared to a place where "that simply doesn't exist," any number is going to seem "large." The thing is, I think I've only seen someone reading anything "x-rated" once on the trains here. So yeah, more than in the US, but far from a large number.

I showed this to my wife, saying that PlayDek generally puts out good translations of tabletop games on iOS, but that I didn't think I'd want to play it on the train. After watching -- or rather skipping through -- the gameplay video earlier in this thread, her reaction was that there's too much reading, and she almost fell asleep. She also said if I played with the sound off on the train, it would be fine. No mention of sexualisation, or underage girls.

I always love a new Playdek game. Downloaded this with enthusiasm.

-The visual theme isn't ideal, but it's not as bad as I was expecting. Having watched my share of anime and read some manga, I know that Japanese maid-themed media can be, ahem, a bit racy. The artwork seems pretty tame in my eyes. Doesn't mean it shouldn't be a point of concern for some players, though.

-I find the actual concept of buying up maids with love to be a bit more "ick" than the images. But I figure if I can listen to black metal without being all "Hail Satan!", I can play this without any adjustment of how I view women.

-Can't tell yet if the assertion from the first few pages of the thread that this game is more complex than Dominion are accurate. It might be? Having put a lot of time into Dominion and Ascension, this is definitely more on the Dominion side of deck building. It feels more complicated right now, but that might just be the typical "new game" learning curve.

-I feel like the game is missing something. And this would be a complaint about the game, not Playdek's interpretation of the game. Like, in the deck building games I love the most--be it Ascension or Penny Arcade or even Dominion--the cards feel like more than just tools to acquire/distribute cards. Each card has its own personality aside from the core mechanics listed. Here, however, the cards are limited to image and numerical accruement for relevant parts of your turn: currency, # of maids that can be played, # of maids that can be acquired, and one other I can't remember off hand. Some of the cards have some additional directions, but I'm failing to really connect with them.

Maybe another way to put it would be that there are a number of cards in Ascension or Penny Arcade or Dominion that I simply like to acquire because they're fun, likable cards. Here it feels completely like function. I acquire a card because it is functional for my game plan.

-That said, I am enjoying learning the core mechanics and strategy. Time will tell if it becomes a fixture of my deck building collection ala Ascension & Penny Arcade, or if it will gather dust on my iPod like Nightwish.

I do play this game. But I only started a few days ago, so I need some time to be comfortable with the rules.

There is a tutorial at the beginning of the game. And the rules are included, so you can get back easily.
