Hey, I wanted to bump this thread for people looking to add players for the AWESOME multiplayer that this game offers .....it's by far the best turn-based experience online (other than Battle Academy of course)

There is a huge, dedicated community and cross-platform play between iOS, Android, Windows, etc..with ELO rankings and an in-game friends list through which you can send multiplayer invites.

The Dev, Paul, is very committed and involved with the community and with supporting this game with updates and gameplay balance/tweaks.

Anyway, for anyone looking to add people for this game then post a short message with your in-game user ID......

My GBWG user name is: TwentyOne

Please feel free to add me for this game........
or for any of the games in my sig vvvvvv GameCenter ID: (Twenty-One)

Xbox - Playstation - Nintendo - iOS - Android

I'm a 30 year old male and even I am extremely turned off by the sexist banter and the fact that the only female character is a ditzy bobble head with bobble-nipples whose sole existence is to be the recipient for as many sexist quips as possible. Starting with the insinuation that the only way she could possible have reached the rank of captain would be to suck ****. Seriously?

Are the developers 14? Or do they just assume gamers are?
Sorry, I missed this one myself. To answer your questions:

* Yes, the juvenile and woman-hostile "humour" prevails throughout. Unless we missed some opportunities.

* You imagined the **** sucking part.

* We average around 35 I think, but I'm 46.

Hope that helps. Bag 'em and tag 'em.

/long, slow, golf clap ensues from my desk....

One of the reasons I've bought just about everything you've put out there: you are not afraid to piss off someone who is being unreasonable just because they might have (or might be considering) giving you less than they'd tip a waitress for fetching them some coffee and feel that entitles them to be kowtowed to.

I'd personally be interested in some examples of the offensive "humor".

EV, now that is funny. It reminds me during the Beta testing one of the testers complained about the Devils Island level, they claimed it was promoting the devil or something like that. Then one of the other beta testers replied that he was a priest and there was nothing wrong with the devil island level.

Just goes to show how hard it is for Paul to develop a game. I think he handles adversity like this very well and with a touch of humor.

BTW I still love this game.

Thanks Hank.

It can be frustrating when you run across the odd, shall we say "challenging" customer, but that's more than made up for by the excellent feedback we get, which usually makes either the game better or us feel better.

If you're pleasing everybody, you're doing it wrong.

Rubicon were deceptive, here. The innuendo that she is only there from 'favours' is clear as day. The point from the ranter above was valid, though overly strident. There's no indication of how low they stoop until past lite.
