App description: Aloha Mate! "Kahuna" takes you to the paradise islands of the South Pacific!

Two priests the wielders of Kahuna magic compete to determine which of them has greater powers. With a select group of 12 uninhabited islands, they use their magical powers to build bridges linking those islands to each other.

In Kahuna, rivals use cards strategically to place bridges between these islands or remove opponent's bridges. As soon as the majority of bridges are conquered around an island, Kahuna marker stones can be placed on that island. The player who holds the most Kahuna stones after a round will score points. Its all about clever placement of limited cards for maximum impact. Kahuna is easy to learn and a challenge to truly master!

- Easy rules based on the successful board game classic published in 1998
- Campaign mode for single players
- Turn-based multiplayer mode for two players
- Numerous Game Center achievements
- 12 AI opponents with different personalities and tactics provide varied challenges
- Artistically crafted cartoon design
- Available localizations: English, German, Dutch

I am able to beat them.

I have three iOS devices: iPad Air, iPad Mini Retina and iPhone ... and it is boring to play on all devices against every player again ... at least a sync to all my devices would be nice ...

Ok, so that's a feature which most apps do not have: iCloud sync. Why don't you write to USM as a feature request?

Did some research and saw that this was listed as one to eh Top Ten Essential board games. Good price point and the dev is working on a save fix. Bought!

Thumbs up, of course, provided that you like light abstract games in general- it's well done, it is not expensive, solo play is fun, MP works, easy to learn, good UI and sometime in the future they will fix the save game issue. But, the games aren't that long, and the app remembers, which Ais you have already beaten in solo mode, and of course when you're playing online, your last turn.
