I played Square's last freemium game on Facebook, and while it looked a lot nicer than many other games, the game mechanics were still pretty shallow. I feel like they should have the capability to make a much better FTP game, so I'm hoping this one will be more than just a graphically impressive freemium game.

Waiting anxiously for this one. Really hope it has something new to offer, new to what already exists on iOS for card games.
Can't wait. Coming in spring gives this a release any time in the next two months. Hope it comes soon!!
