Universal version is not a sure bet, according to the devs. Just got another email.

Probably doesn't matter. I'm not very good at this thing...
You can. There are little lights above each of the opponents columns just below the scores. They light up where the last card played was. And if none are lit up, then they discarded a card.

I hadn't noticed those lights. That's helpful - thanks for pointing it out.

Default Great Game

I think the devs did a great job on this. My first time playing, and was able to learn the game quickly with their tutorial structure.

Great stat tracking and ranking systems. A ton of thought went into interface to keep things simple to play.

Have already put in a bunch of hours, and look forward to many more.

My only small gripe is the color blind issue. I do have a hard time between the green and yellow cards. It helps that they are auto sorted in hand, but a little more contrast would help me out.

the only thing that really bugs me is that you can't control the sound alert when a new online move is there. I don't want to be informed with a sound but just visually, this really has to be fixed...

Check your notification in the settings for Gamecenter and turn off the sound to see if this helps.

You can turn off sounds for Game Center and I believe that will stop Lost Cities from making sound alerts. However I have never actually tried this myself. It's worth a shot, at least if that fix is what you want. They should have a setting for LC only. Perhaps they could add that as a setting within the game, but I'm not sure if that's even possible with GC.

How do I know if my GC friend has this game so that I can send out invitation?

In the online games section it lists every single GC friend you have. You have to manually scroll that list and see if they they are ranked. If you see the ??? instead of a shield they may or may not have the game but they haven't played online yet. :/

The other option is to open Gamecenter, go to Games, Find Lost Cities, Tap, Switch to Players view, then it shows friends with the game.

In my case I have 3 Players (those are active games with friends)
and 21 friends (which includes those 3)
