Got a question though - when you started the next game, did you use the Rematch button or create a new game? Because when I was trying to look through the results, after the first tap on the screen, it cleared away as if I had tapped on the done button. And then when I went to accept the new game, there was no Accept button. I've seen this happen before too. I'm wondering if the Rematch feature has some bugs...

Thanks for the kind words. I still have too many games going at a time, but it's hard for me to say no.

I have been trying to pay more attention to both my own strategy and that of my opponents. And you're right about our matches. You beat me nearly every time early on, but I have been holding my own more often lately. You are definitely one of my tougher opponents.

And to answer your question, I used Rematch.

I bought this game yesterday and can't put it down!

But one thing really bugs me... Push notifications. They don't work for me.
Sometimes I recieve badge on app icon but never get notification for my turn. And all is set right in notification options.

If i have a game going on with anyone, I will not be able to finish the game as I am out of town this week, and my daughter has taken over my ipad2 to sate her addiction to order & chaos.

Aaaaaaaa!!!
Developers if you are reading this forum, PLEASE, PLEASE fix this push notifications, please!!! I already payed you 5+3 dollars and I would pay you 8$ more if you get this done!

This game is so much fun and is well made but it would be even better if you fix that bug or whatever it is.

That's been around since it launched, it is no where near as bad as the notifications in disc drivin though. I just check mine every day to see if I need to make a turn.

Yes, the notification here is half-broken and no where near as great as Carcassonne, but if you take this game seriously, it will become a habit to check-in once a while to see any return. I have adequate people to play with to keep me motivated...

What this game seriously need is a chat system and other things...

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)

Well it's back to work for me after the holiday season of Dec - so I'll be a lot slower in getting my turns in, with most of the play time during the evening.

Happy new year to all!

I check for moves every hour or so. Thats not problem.. Problem is if notifications would work like it should there should be big chances to continue playing "live" with opponent. If you know what I mean. Like in Kard Combat. When someone makes move I get gc notification and play my move right away and in most times we continue playing till we finish game.

And yes... Chat is a must here. If nothing, you could set playtime with opponent to play few games in a row.

What about an update of the Ascension's review (considering the release of RotF) ?
