We definitely received that feedback early on. Since then we've gone on to add 4 difficulty settings to help address this. One of them being an easier one, the normal one toned down a bit, and 2 even more difficult settings.

If you wish to see how the game plays with a group, in a more spontaneous setting by all means check out some of the youtuber/twitch streams of the game:

The game is pretty laggy on iPad 3. The opening menu is fine as while as about 90% of the time playing cards. It mostly lags when the screen changes views and when your in the map. Great game so far but the laggyness is really annoying. Hopefully they can smooth it out in updates. I really need to get a new iPad.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

Edit: that said, I'm not sure I can sit through that video with that, like 4 frame avatar one of the players was using. That is crazy distracting. It's like having a twitch.

Nooooo!!! iOS 9.1 minimum!!!! Gutted, jailbroken on 8.3 on my iPad! And even if it were to go universal, my iPhone is only 9.0.2. 😢

@OneManLeft - Please, any chance you can optimise to run on iOS 8? I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd hammer the buy button if they could?! Pretty please?

For the devs: Can you play vs AI? Because I liked Outwitters but I eventually stopped playing because it was too long waiting for another person to move.

The "1-4 players" tells me yes, but I can see where you're coming from, as it's not exclusively mentioned of playing against the AI. Even with the mention of the difficulty levels, those apply in multiplayer as well as you're always playing against the AI; which actually, by that logic, I'm going to say, yes 99% percent certain you can play solo against AI.

But I'll wait for confirmation with you.

The game is fundamentally PvE (player vs environment). So you can play as a solo player where you control the entire crew and try to complete the mission, or partner up with friends via async (or locally) and assign a particular crew to join. But regardless of how many people are playing, you are always playing against the game.

So yes, if you play solo you can play as fast (or slow) as you like.
