If I'm not mistaken this is actually a universal app, not just for the ipad!

It says coming soon "iPad version" but that sounds like another app, not sure if they mean universal (but I hope so).

Did anyone notice they misspelled the title - and therefore the link? The title says "Kinsburg" but everywhere else it is "Kingsburg" which I know is correct. Very unfortunate mistake.

Yeah, I noticed that when trying to search for it. It's an easy mistake to fix but it doesn't instill confidence in me. I checked the devs website (e-nigma.it) which has plenty of screenshots but I don't know enough about the game to know if I'd like it yet

Looking at the actual board-game and it sounds interesting. This came out of nowhere for me though. Someone TOFTT

How many AI players can you compete against and do the AI personalities differ a la Carcassonne? Also will there be Game Center support down the road.

Yeah, I was just looking at the requirements. At least it looks like you could play this on an ipad, it just wouldn't look as good as a universal or native ipad game.


P.S. This thread was originally in the ipad section.

Here is a video of a guy demonstrating the actual board game:

http://www.mevio.com/episode/96947/e...g/?mode=detail

Looking briefly at the video I'm seeing a game similar in many ways to Roll Through the Ages. Each turn you roll dice vying for resources with your opponents to build structures that give you victory points. The winner being the one who has completed all of the structures or at least come the closest to doing so, victory point wise, in 40 turns (I think that's right as the game goes for 5 years ans each year has 8 phase/turns to it).
