Give it a little time. Apparently there was a minor issue with the way Apple released it.

Edit: Apparently it is a server thing... it has propagated on some servers, but not all.

So is only working for a % of people at the moment.

My first reaction is unfavorable. The cards are tiny and unless you have them memorized, you have to constantly click on them to see what is what.

I couldnt get the tutorial to work, it kept telling me to place the wall on the highlighted square and there was no highlighted square.

I think I'll leave this to you hardcore fans.
