Never heard of it. I bought it, played it, and it's great! Lots of fun. Very simple mechanic but with a good mix of luck/strategy.

I bought this and I love it. Really nice atmosphere to the game with excellent gameplay and art to go along with it.

You can play against computer players just to be clear, I lost the first match I played. This is a card game where you are trying to get your body parts collected before the other players. Each turn you draw a card and then can keep, sell or auction off the card. There is a good amount of strategy especially when it comes to auctioning. with auctioning you can set the price low but you risk losing the card but if you think no one needs it you can get a good deal.

There are also angry villagers that pop up in the deck and they have to be paid a certain amout of coins to appease them.

If you like card games, .99 no brainer.

Agreed. I lost the first THREE games before I finally won! I'm gonna blame it on the villagers though

Dang! Another can of soda spent...

Any sort of stat or highscore tracking of best games?

I didn't see any. A high score table would work since you receive a score at the end of the game but honestly this would really only be useful as a local high score table.
