Good game, just one slight irritation to be aware of

This is definitely a good game (and actually worth it at full price IMO). The only slight thing to be aware of is that you only see one player's principality at once on screen -- you can swizzle between them but it's not quite the same as with the real card game where you instantly have the other player's layout in front of you. Still a nice implementation, though.

I know Settlers of Catan, but Rivals? Is it also a boardgame? How similar is it to Settlers?

Rivals is the updated version of the Catan card game. If you've played the original Catan card game, then you'll be able to play rivals, you just have to get adjusted to various new cards and tweaks to the rules.

Usmgames is doing a sale a day from now to Christmas. For example today you can pick up 'Yoga with Patrick Broom' https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/yoga-with-patrick-broome/id699401017?mt=8.

I highly recommend it if you like yoga games.
