Puerto Rico HD, for iPad only (San Juan is universal), is also on sale for 99 cents.

$0.99/£0.99/€0.99.

It's a shame because I would have picked this up if they hadn't deliberately chosen this unfair exchange rate.

I hear you, but 30 pence is hardly worthy crying over if you really want the game.

Us Brits get screwed over by iTunes at nearly every price point so the £.99 thing is just another poke in the eye.

This is a quality developer though, not someone trying to scam you, and it is Apple who agreed this, so we can't really have a go at devs here.

I use FMA to earn dollar iTunes cards and have got loads of games this way, so maybe you should create a US account and start earning points.

Apple offer a $0.99/£0.99 tier and a $0.99/£0.69 tier and the dev chose the unfair one.

I'm not fussed about the 30p, but I won't reward the Dev for deliberately choosing an unfair tier.

I will agree to disagree with you. Apple is at fault IMHO not the dev.

Business is business and if you can charge a higher price in a 'sale' situation, I don't really have a problem with it.....but I kinda see your point and guess you don't really want the game as the AppStore has no place for principles 😜

My favorite card game on the AppStore. Get it at the bargain price while you can

Even thought it does not have any async MP, I would say it is a very good card game on it own right.
