hmmm actually the game isn't that fun as it was as I played it for the first time. You can be as good as you want you may just have bad luck and then you will lose. Imo the game relies too much on luck instead of skill (which isn't much needed to be honest)

I don't think the delay between moves is that bad, but I've never played with someone in the same room and there it would be annoying I'm sure. They need to add bluetooth multiplayer definitely. However I'm really enjoying this game. Yes there is a fair bit of luck, but strategy too - the better player will win more often. There's more to the game then first appears to be the case.

It's a freaking CARD GAME, of course it's a lot of it has to do with luck!

Lost Cities is like any other game that uses Game Center. Ascension, Summoner Wars, ect all take 5-15 seconds to log into GC every time you switch to the app before you can play online. If you stay in the app logged in (as I'd assume you'd do in a local game), turns between players go pretty quick.

But yeah, local multiplayer would be nice.

Wanna a game, btw?
I got a notification that it was my turn and that you had taken your turn, but it wouldn't let me go, so I rebooted. As expected, it didn't help. I made sure I was logged into GC. Gave up, quit game, and sent new invite.

Sorry for any confusion!

It's a game about probabilities, like Poker. Sure, you never know what card you will draw next, but you have to try to make choices that stack the odds in your favor, so to speak. So, starting a journey you end up losing a few points on, but that gives you the turns you need to score big elsewhere, that's a net win. There's a big random element, but the strategy is in rying to tame that.

There's a sale going on but without an iPad version I won't be picking this up. These types of games work great on iPad!

I just bought this game from the sale, but I have a question. Are there timers for the online multiplayer? I tried looking through the thread, but didnt manage to find an answer. I just started my first online match and was curious how long I would have to wait for a turn.

Other than that though, I am really enjoying the game. I have been havin a blast playing against the AI. It has a well made UI.
