Exactly..... But maybe it is a partersip because this is an exact looking copy.

Still have my eye on this hoping to get some reviews on the gameplay.

Hm, the "dev web site" link on the page takes us to RichDad's website, but there's no mention of it there yet.

Also, the description states "Based on the original board game", so I'm not quite sure what to make of it.

I played this back in the day, it was an interesting experience if you were looking to learn a bit more about financial literacy. It won't rock your world, but if that's something you'd be interested in trying out, I remember it being quite competent.

Has anyone tried this iOS version? Any mentions in the credits/About if this is in any way official?

Hi,
well ... I tried it ... and ... well ...

1. No tutorial at all!

2. No different AI Level, just 'Bots' ... and you can't give a name to the AI player.

3. AI player moves very fast ... one turn in less a second ... so ... well ... you know what I mean.

4. No save option at all! You can only play ... and play ... if you leave, the game is lost ... and: One game takes more than an hour ...

After spending the money and one hour ... well ... I would not buy this again ... not at this stage. In the App it says it is Version 0.15 ... and well ... it feels like 0.15 ...

So be warned,
Regards,

Mythbuster

Oh :|

Sad to hear that. Thanks for the heads up. That's not promising, though...

Is it the same as this?

Is this an accidental release? i.e. will be pulled by developer as it is unready? Ver 0.1.5 sounds like it will be pulled just like D Day Dice...

Yet another iPad only release for no apparent reason. Just like Pandemic, Alchemists, Frozen Synapse... So many other great board games work perfectly with the iPhone. I'm sick of buying iPad only games, so while this looks intriguing, I'll pass for that reason.

I also accidentally rated it and now I can't remove the rating.
