App description: Kingdoms is a clever tile-laying game by top eurogame designer, Reiner Knizia. In a medieval kingdom, you must scout out resources and hazards to decide where to build your mightiest castles. Commit too soon and you might discover a tribe of ogres right next door, but commit too late, and your opponents will grab up all the real estate!

Six different opponents, each with their own personality, challenge you at a variety of difficulty levels to make the game very replayable.

Kingdoms is built on the same successful MobileEuroCard platform that was used to create Reiner Knizia's High Society and Reiner Knizia's Money. Simple gestures allow you to grab and move tiles. Everything is animated, for a colorful play experience.

This newest version uses Game Center for leaderboards and achievements. We plan multiplayer play for a future release.

Decided to give this a try at $1.99. Downloading now. I see an iPad in my future, so this being universal was a plus.

This is a good game and definitely worth 99 cents. I do hope they get the update out adding sound, though. I don't like that this game is completely silent. Also would very much like a pass-and-play multiplayer option.

This game has been updated with IAP tile and board expansions, and some Game Center achievements. Also, a lite version has just shown up.

That's good, I like the game and I may buy the IAP to try the new stuff, but like everybody what I most want is online. Hopefully the devs figure out how to do it at some point.

Is the new IAP worth it?

Hard to say. They're very straight forward in what they offer, but whether adding in a -8 and +8 tile or two new board configurations are each worth $1, is a call only you can make as a player.

I'm a fan of the game and gladly snap up all of its IAPs, but still suck so horribly at it I'm in no position to say how these two IAPs affect game balance or "fun".

I think Kingdoms is my kind of game. I found out that I had actually bought it a long time ago after I discovered Knizia, but never got around to playing it until this latest update.

Kingdoms is actually a short and simple game, despite the screenshots. The IAP expansions helped to spice things up even further, it is all I have been playing these two days. I am using the Zombies and Monument add-on on the 6x6 map.

Not too sure how the heroes work yet. In one game, the AI used the female heroine and placed all its tokens on her two rows, which became immune to attack. Lost very badly that time.

Yeah, those heroes have some very twisted little powers all covered in the game's documentation.
