The only Bitmaps game worth getting excited about, even if that's a minority opinion.

Highly anticipated. But: no multiplayer yet (as promised). Would be an instabuy with bluetooth or WiFi multiplayer. As it is, I'll pass on this one and see what the next updates have in stock.

Now playing: Tokaido, Jaipur, Race for the Galaxy, Potion Explosion, Lanterns, Lotus
Waiting for: Enough time to play through the back catalogue of my recent purchases
