While you have every right to be unhappy that the game requires an Internet connection (and I agree it's silly, since I have no interest in mp) it is a great game, perhaps one of the best strategy games on iOS. Leaving a one-star review is a disservice.

Would love an option to speed up the gameplay a little.

I bought this game because of your post.

Congrats to the developer!

In fact, I might just buy anything they put out now because you are just so damn negative.

To be fair it should have mentioned internet connection is required for the game.

But I am fine with that.

Or better, ask the developer if this can be changed.

Very true. It should say that it requires making an account with a third party and that it requires an Internet connection.

I'd love to see them add in an offline mode, with the ability to copy the online profile to that mode but not the other way.

I'm confused on gameplay, seems a little complicated.

Damn good way to spend $.99.

Best card game I've played on iOS.

It is at first. I suggest watching a video tutorial online. There's a lot going on, but the individual pieces aren't actually that complicated once you get it figured out.

One other complaint. Two out of my three mission slots are already clogged with "anyone" missions. I don't want to play multiplayer and would like the option to be rid of these.
