I am highly interested... but what variation of the game is this? Cause almost every app on the store gets bones wrong somehow.

Here is a great way to make a million dollars, make a dominoe game with turn based gameplay, but instead of having a stupid proprietary "buddy network" make it easier to play by allowing play against Facebook and android People and call it dominoes with friends.


Seriously why do people make a game like this and shoot themselves in the foot by not including play against Facebook friends. Are developers that dumb or do they not want to make money? Don't agree with me? Then go take a look at draw something and charadium. Then youll see my point.

I agree and I don't. Personally, I'm happy they didn't link it to Facebook. I don't have it for my own reasons. I'm glad they didn't tie the multiplayer to it. But, I was kind of annoyed to have to sign up for yet another social gaming network. I can't even count the number of different networks I've had to sign up for to play games. It's getting out of control.

However, I do think it's dumb that they didn't take advantage of Game Center. The only reason that I can think they would use their own servers is so they can do cross platform gameplay.
