For now it is in NZ cuz of the release date. As the clock turns it will soon be in your region I suspect.

I will get this as soon as it hits 11 PM. One of my favorite board games I can now have on the go and without the mess!!

Same here. Played the heck out of it in my youth, when we had NO iDevices and had to put the marbles manually on the board!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Not a board game I've ever heard of, sounds interesting but what I'm trying to grasp here is why this game is not online turn-based, same device not really tempting. If I could play my friends online I'd have a few interested in this I think...
