Ugh, I so wish they would produce this and Small World for the iPhone... Interface concerns on such a small screen? Aboslutely... but I'm sure they could pull it off...

I've played TtTR this way a number of times I'll be on the big computer, my wife will have the laptop, and we'll be sitting in the same room. It's certainly an odd way to accomplish it, but the fun factor is exactly the same. The game itself doesn't change at all.
True but have you played Small World on the iPad? Local multiplayer would be optimal for TtR.

Crap I spent like $15 buying this java version to play on Mac maybe four months ago or so. Evidently I'll have to use it though to play one of my kids while theyre on the iPad.

Played about 5 games. So far I'd have to say I think this may be the best translation of a board game I have played on the iOS. Presentation is great, with nice sounds and animations. Online gameplay is very smooth. The only thing I'd say is it's a little difficult to pay attention to what cards the opponents grab.
