Rummikub - $4.99

An official port of Rummikub has been released - $4.99

I have been waiting forever for a polished version of Rummikub on the iPhone, this is one of my favorite board games.

I'll post some more detailed impressions after I've played it awhile

Couldn't resist this so bought it. Not played for very long yet but my initial impressions:

- Excellent UI implementation
- Looks very polished
- AI seems decent so far

- Quite a few spelling/grammatical errors
- Game crashes now and then for me (OS 3.0)

Overall I'm impressed - but wary about those crashes; time will tell, I guess.

Jamie.
