I remember playing Abalone as a kid and as it would be nice to download for a trip down memory lane, I have to agree with Fedorov that it's sort of a missed opportunity not having online pvp. This game takes a great deal of skill and can be played multiple ways, it would be nice to open up the playing field and match wits with others.

Just playing the single player is so much fun! I'm really loving this game. I hope they do add MP, but as it is now, I really like it!

The whole design of the game looks not very elegant. The fonts look blur to me on my iPhone 5.

Extensive Knowledge of CBT. Just send me a PM!

Ok, so the online PVP update seems to be out... _but_ the description is troubling:

"- Now multiplayer online : the actual Abalone Premium + 20 free multiplayer tokens + 2 token for free every week
- No Ads
- International ranking
- Network games are cross-plateform
- 10 additional challenges
- Improved GUI"

Can anyone check what these token things are all about? Can I play PVP whenever I want with my friends, or do I have to buy these tokens for that to happen?

Seriously, after having paid for an app already, getting into a "pay-to-play" scheme doesn't seem to be what I'd be looking for, but I'm awaiting confirmation.
