Roll Through the Ages (lite civ dice board game)

http://rollthroughtheages.com/

Will be out next few days beginning of June 2010 for ipad and iphone.
I've only had chance to play this board game once. It's pretty decent and one of those games if you play it again would say yea definitely do this differently next time.

Here are screenshots from the actual board game..couldn't find any from ipad version yet. One is components and 2nd screenshot is scoresheet so you have an idea of what is involved.

If this one is successful perhaps we can hope for Pandemic for iPad too.

Where did you see mention or discussion of this? I can't find anything on Boardgamegeek other than someone saying it is supposedly coming out. Nothing at the official site you link to either.

I have to agree that it is a fun little game to play. Hopefully they will have computer opponents and implement the Late Bronze Age variant as well, since it is an official variant of the game.

I would die if they released Race For The Galaxy or Dominion. Bring on the board/card game love for iPad!

I am soooo looking forward to this! One of my favorites! One of my buddies gave me a set of laminated scoresheets and grease pencils. We have played RTTA at least 100 times at gamenights.

good question the twitter feed said iphone / iPad so maybe I'll wait one day or so to make sure the iPad release isn't coming.
