App description: *** Special price for all USM board game apps ***

An appetizingly addictive dice game for up to 4 gambling gobblers. Barbecued worms are in high demand, and only the coolest-headed chicken can win the tasty snack! But beware: Anyone who doesn't manage to grab a worm off the grill can help himself to those on his opponents' plates! In Reiner Knizias popular dice game, 16 barbecue worm portions with different values are waiting on the grill to be snatched up by the dice-throwing chickens. The rules are simple, but dont push your luck too far: To get your claws into one of the delicious worms, you roll all 8 dice at the same time. You then pick a value from your throw and remove all the dice showing the same value, before throwing the remaining dice again. If your score corresponds to an available barbecue worm portion on the grill you can take this portion - or maybe even grab a portion from the plate of your fellow players! Youll need both the luck of the dice and the right strategy: Stick with your score, or roll the dice just one more time to get a better portion. The player with the most worms in his claws at the end of the game wins!

Features:
Single-Player against 6 AI opponents with unique tactics
Hot seat multiplayer for up to 4 players on one device
Online multiplayer for 2-4 players via Game Center
Numerous achievements to unlock

Even without a description, picture, or video I can say I'm about 98% certain this will be an instabuy for me as soon as it is out here! I LOVE Reiner Knizia games--I have all but a couple and they live permanently on my iThings.

Nice surprise. I think it was announced years ago- I did not expect that it would ever happen. My download of the week. USM usually has good computer opponents, and there is both hotseat and online MP, so this is bound to have a permanent stay on my iPad.

Now playing: Unworded, Aurora Puzzle Adventure, Steamworld Heist, PinOut!, Sproggiwood, Colorcube, kubic, Mekorama, Open Bar!
Waiting for: Any Star Realms expansion, Nyheim, Onirim

Can you let us know if it is async or not as far as online MP? USM hasn't been big on async in the past to the best of my knowledge. Thanks!

It is simple to learn but if you Play it, you will see, that it has deep strategy.

Graphics and in game music are well done. The AI is really good. There are six different AI player with complete different strategis of play.

So if you ask me: Five stars!
