App description: Lotus is a beautiful game that grows into a unique work of art every time you play.

Clear your head and take in the quiet strength of the Lotus garden. It takes skillful care and nurturing to grow these flowers to their full potential, but once picked, they provide their owner with wisdom. Beware, for there are others who will do anything they can to get their hands on these mystical flowers. You'll need to enlist the help of creatures native to this land to take control of the Lotus garden and achieve true enlightenment.

In Lotus, players take turns adding petals and utilizing guardians to control and nurture these mystical flowers to maturity. Collect special abilities as you grow to aid you on your quest, and gain wisdom points for each completed bloom. At the end of the game the player with the most wisdom points will emerge from the garden that much closer to enlightenment!

Vibrant visual effects, skilled AI, meditative environmental music and smooth touch play translate the serenity of Lotus to your phone or tablet.

Praise for the board game:
2016 Golden Geek Best Board Game Artwork & Presentation Nominee
2017 Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts & Design Origins Awards Nominee

Praise for the board game:
"Lotus is a game that is beautiful, serene, and even a bit meditative. As the garden grows and flowers near completion, youll find a kind of peacefulness at your game table, which you may have never experienced before." Dave Banks (GeekDad.com)

"A very simple light game but there are some good decisions to make." - Dan King, The Game Boy Geek.

"It's a very interesting, dynamic game." - Joel Eddy, Drive Thru Reviews.

"Lotus makes for a tense, competitive atmosphere, and it does it with a minimalist set of rules that make the game ideal for families as long as no one minds when things start getting a little cut-throat.." The Guardian

"Lotus is more than beautiful; its fun and contains unique gameplay mechanisms. Ryan Morgenegg, Deseret News

Lotus offers all of the beauty and depth of the tabletop game, PLUS:

Online asynchronous matchmaking against old friends and new
Strategic solo play to hone your skills against AI players
Progressive Challenge system to guide you through gameplay
Intuitive tap-and-drag petal placement for fast and easy play

Multiplayer?

Anybody able to get a multiplayer game started. Im not having any luck. Trying to play against a friend, and neither of us can figure out how to get it started. Really unintuitive to say the least.

I cannot even log in. "Lanterns" (same server?), the other Renegade board game, till connects. Pity. Otherwise, fine app. The computer player is not as strong as in "Lanterns", so I am looking forward to get Lotus online running.

Now playing: Tokaido, Jaipur, Race for the Galaxy, Potion Explosion, Lanterns, Lotus
Waiting for: Enough time to play through the back catalogue of my recent purchases

Yeah, I finally talk my wife into a mobile game we can play against each other, and neither of us can connect or create an async game. Frustrating

You know what I did, to get in? I switched back and forth between the game selection screen and the Log In screen only to find, that I finally was logged in despite the connection error message. If that works for you, too, add me (steve123) to your friends and invite me ;-)
