Nice a day early always a nice surprise.

Edit.

I'm not liking that line of description too much. Does that mean an internet connections is required at all times.

Don't be worried about always online, people. Netflix is always online, and it works great :-D

Awesome, finally! Hopefully the always-online features doesn't use too much bandwith!

Looks... AWESOME.

It's Rubicon, so that equals "I will own this."

Buuut...

Free... Alright, it's still Rubicon, so that's not horrible...

Aaand...

Persistent internet connection required? OooKkk...

Sure, if it was Netflix I wouldn't be concerned, but it's an iOS game, sooo...

I guess I'll know soon enough.

Interesting, been waiting for this. Not really worried about the free and required connection, but we'll see.

As far as the IAP, let me set you straight. (I beta tested).

You need to spend $2.99 for the trippler if you want to build your deck up before you grow old.

I spent $2.99 on the trippler during the beta, while some betas spent $49.99 or more. They crushed me for a while. Eventually, I was able to hold my own -- none win more than 50% against me now, and several cant beat me at all. It did take a while and a lot of games to get there, but how could one expect anything else? The game is as fair as this model can be, a great example of how to do this right.

If you arent willing to go the trippler route and do buy coins, use my code -- you'll get more coins, and I'll get a referral bonus. JFLF5HT. If you cant tolerate any period where a probably quite small segment of the gamers have any edge over you, dont play or buy coins.

Will answer any questions: I'm a big believer in the game.

I like that they have a one-time purchase option for a benefit in the game aside from the regular IAP purchases. So many freemium games have offered me some entertainment, yet when I go to give them money there are no options for someone who doesn’t want to pay $5 for a random one-time chance of getting something. For any creators of freemium games out there, get the best of both worlds and offer IAP for those than continuously buy AND those that want a one-time purchase.

Sooo, would it be fair to say that the actual cost of a relatively satisfying experience of the game would be 3 bucks?
