I hope they will bring the expansion, too!

From what I've read of the game so far it seems like it has almost zero player interaction outside of role selection, and even that is barely player interaction. Async shoul have been easy to implement for this. I'll pick this game up the minute it gets async.

Is this developed by Sage Games, or did Ravensburger do it themselves?

I don't think this was Sage games, no ELO system as all of their others have featured.

Ravensburger have a few developers under their belt so not sure who was behind it.

Ah, thanks. I may splurge for this. I wish it had local bluetooth multiplayer, but maybe that will come later?

I know I really like it. A streamlined take on Puerto Rico with a bit more randomness (you can't really stick to an optimized build path as you might in Puerto Rico since you never know which blueprints you'll have to choose from) but still buckets of depth.

I played one game and it's fun. I like it. However I really wish you could zoom in on the cards more on an iPhone or otherwise they made the text larger. Sooo tiny. I'll stick to playing this on the iPad at least until I know all the cards well.

For the most part this has a nice interface. The only thing I didn't like was how to get info on roles you have to double tap the small roll icons - you can't double tap the big ones, though perhaps that would be problematic anyway. Not sure.

Crunc is exactly right about this. This has to be near the top of their list (behind async) in terms of future updates. Unless you have the cards memorized (and even then they are hard to see), it makes the game very difficult to play on the Iphone.

Current Favorites: Lords of Waterdeep, Ascension, Cafe International, Lost Cities, and Agricola.
