Yeah, I personally prefer this over Ra, the theme seems to fit better and the game is easy to understand.

Something I just noticed and swear it wasn't in Ra, is that the game is always showing you your current score in the round. While you won't get the score breakdown until the end of the round, if you've just gotten enough trinkets to score a set, no longer have the least body guards, or any other scorable situation (good or bad), you'll see it reflected in your score the MOMENT it happens. This is very cool, and since all information in this game is open to public view, it isn't really a cheat but just the computer always doing the scoring math for you while I swear this information was much more hidden in Ra.

I personally appreciate knowing exactly where I stand so I can better react in the midst of the round and not only figure out how I let myself fall far behind at the end of the round.

While I appreciate that the game does some career score tracking, I find the current system pretty meaningless. A far more meaningful score, I think, would be to divide those combined totals by number of game played.

I mean knowing my average score in each difficulty level means so much more than total scores. Say I have a combined total of 300 in both Easy and Hard. How did I get these scores? So if I got the 300 in Easy over 5 games but it took 10 to get that on Hard it would now be:

Easy Average = 60
Hard Average = 30

So now those raw numbers have some context and it isn't simply a matter of how many times you played.

I think win percentage would be nice as well. If I'm averaging 30 points in my 10 Hard games, odds are I'm not winning many.

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Does anybody still play this? And any success getting an online game? Just started playing solo. Have not been able to start an online game via Facebook or Anonymous.
