Any impressions on this? I ordered the game a couple of days ago. Looks like it could be fun if enough people play it.

Unfortunately, it appears to require iOS 10.2. And since I generally prefer to wait awhile to upgrade from one full version of iOS to the next, until things are generally a bit more stable compatibility-wise when it comes to games. I'm going to have to wait awhile. Which is a shame, as this looks great.
