Strategic micro board game 'Province' (iPad) $4.99 => Free

Published two weeks ago. Free for the first time. It's a Kickstarter Project with 6.000 subscribers. Since Apple doesn't give out so many codes the game is now generally free for a few hours only.

From what I have read, this is a clumsy attempt to fulfill kickstarter rewards to backers given apple's limited code policy. The one day free price today was in a backers only update on kickstarter that today was the day to claim their reward.

They requested to backers not to advertise this sale but I am sure it still shows up on appshopper and other sites anyway. It probably shouldn't be advertised on a thread here since it isn't really intended to be a free give away to the general public even though it could easily be construed as that.

Favorite iOS games: King of Dragon Pass, RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion, Junk Jack X & Silversword.

Looks interesting, but those people are straight out of Carcassonne.

I don't think I'll ever play it, as it actually looks pretty boring to me, but I downloaded it just because it was free.
