The game is great. Highly polished and a ton of fun. I really really like it. But, the online MP is slow as molasses. Bluetooth MP would be great as well. I do not like the use of Game Center for multiplayer. It doesn't fit well within the context and design of the game. Also, moving between online matches is very awkward. I don't like having to back out to the main menu to switch games. Seems like this could be a streamlined process. I hope a future update addresses some of these issues.

There is no denying these guys could learn a bit about how to manage multiple games from Playdek.

That said I have to say I'm begrudgingly very impressed with this game. I was so sure I was walking into some Vegas themed Can't Stop or maybe even another Farkle clone, but this game is really original. I love so many of the clever mechanics like ties canceling each other out and the concept of a communal ghost player you all have some influence over (if you aren't careful you might screw yourself over from scoring without another player placing a die to block you).

While I have yet to see it in action, the idea of virtual side bets on matches is pretty clever as well (there is even a game within in the game based on WHEN you place the bet in an online game).

Do you commit dice early and boldly, or hold off as long as possible to get the final word on some unclaimed casino?

This game is so damn frickin' underrated, I could cry.

This is still a hidden gem. I can't believe it.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

You have just picked yourself a fight, Mr., that can only be settled in the streets of Las Vegas...with a bunch of dice and stuff.

I'll take it.
But only tomorrow, cause I accidentally deleted the game while sorting a few apps. I'll re-install soon and send you an invitation.

I confused it with one of my two dozen poker apps.

Hmmm...I used to live in LV, so maybe I should get this?

1. Does this sync across all iDevices?
2. Can the game muzak be muted?
