I've already seen that. There can be some strategy but that doesn't mitigate the extreme randomness in the game. Actions like Trade Hands or Shuffle Keepers throw all strategy to the wind.

I prefer a game with clear chaos than one seemingly strategic but utterly random like summoner wars. I am not surprised these comes from NASA ... Looks like playing a game as chaotic as Apollo 13 mission!

has anyone experienced connection problems with this app? my wife's game won't go online, but other apps can, and she's tried restarting and a
so redownloading it.

also, several games show the other players as "remote player" instead of their name.

Game Center servers have been a bit slow this evening, at least for a couple of Playdek's apps. We wait for Game Center to authenticate you (the Welcome Back banner appears when that happens). Until then, we can't connect to our servers, so the Play Online button is greed out. If the Game Center server doesn't respond, you'll see a long pause, followed by the Welcome Back banner, but you are really authenticated, so the Play Online button will tell you need to connect to Game Center first.

Since Fluxx, I have been meaning to come out here and say that I can't seem to connect to their server via the Wifi at work anymore - GameCenter connects OK, and other online games will, but not PlayDek games (or Carcassonne ) so I have been a little slowmaking turns as of late.

That's been common for Playdek games - for some reason the players' names tend to load slower than the games themselves... They should eventually populate.

An aside - been playing this pass-n-play with our 3yo daughter, and despite not being able to read much, she's handling the game pretty well!

We retrieve your username from Game Center, so whenever you see "Remote Player" we're still waiting for a response from Apple's servers.
