For a game this complex I am actually quite impressed with how well the AI does and how they made them actually play differently. Sure human competition is always better but the AI is pretty solid!

In fact i imagine updating the AI was one of the harder parts of programming the expansions as the new tiles add a lot more possibilities.

Finally broke down and got this, and I love it. Either I'm a terribly rubbish player, or the AI is pretty darn tough. I don't think I've felt this actively challenged by an AI in any similar games.

Actually makes me afraid to play other humans though I am a bit of a Carc noob, but I don't lack for enthusiasm for the game. If you're on the fence, it's a wonderful app as well (I own the tabletop also). Very impressed with the polish and presentation.
