strivemind's comments:

This is apparently the official app of the card drafting game Fairy Tale as shown on BoardGameGeek.

Despite the Japanese shown, this game is indeed in English (except for what I think is some card flavor text), and decently translated too.

There are 3 IAP:
- Expert Rules 1 - adds 20 additional cards and some new rules
- Expert Rules 2 - adds 10 additonal cards and some new rules
- Pack that contains Expert Rules 1 & 2 for $5.99

I was going to share this, but I wasn't sure how many people would care, lol. I actually own and have played the physical version quite a few times, and this app really does the game justice. I've heard people are having issues finding and connecting to games online, though.

But for a single player against AI experience, this is really awesome. I will definitely be buying both iap sets of cards as soon as I can.

Oh, and this game has a pretty great tutorial, but if anyone has any questions about it, I'm very familiar with the base game. I never did get around to playing with the expert cards, though, lol.

Friends in Multiplayer does not work. Always crashes to home screen. Wrote company, they responded it was tested with ios 7.1.1 so I upgraded from 7.0.6 and same thing. Just going for random human matches is useless, no one is online. Also, seems you cannot play with less than four players.

Unless you are satisfied by AI only, avoid until updated with a fix.
