It's only Tuesday, and this has become a very expensive week already!

It's officially RK Day!

And, I don't know, despite what the description claims I'm sure I could still manage to lose some of the game pieces.

Is there any sort of stat tracking for solo play against the AI opponents? Do the various AI opponents have unique personalities?

There is a "Stats" screen that shows your wins vs games played, total points from all games, and an ELO ranking. It includes tracking for the AI opponents so you can see how they do in your games too.

Because of the nature of this game (there are only 4 symbols to choose from), there aren't exactly unique AI personalities, but you can set the difficulty level of each AI player and those levels do have some variation in terms of style of play.

We want to make sure people know how to start online games, because sometimes the Game Center UI isn't completely intuitive:

1. Tap "Play" and then "Online" in the app to open the Game Center game viewer.

2. If you see any games or invites here, you are good to go!

3. Otherwise, to create or join a new game, tap the "+" button.

4. To create a 3 or 4 player game, tap "Add Player" to add a third or fourth player.

5. You can leave the other players as "Auto-Match" for a random match-up, or you can invite one or more friends from your Game Center friend list by tapping the "Invite Friend" button in the appropriate slot.

We'll be hooking up the normal setup screen to online game creation for version 1.1, so that should make it clearer what kind of game you are creating and give you more options like "Public Scores", etc.

Hopefully these instructions will help in the meantime.

Happy gaming!

Okay, that's something at least.

Would I stand to gain a bigger ELO boost, all things being equal final score wise, if I had just beat 3 high level AI opponents than 3 lowest level AI opponents? Maybe better put, will the AI difficulty levels of my opponents have any sort of effect on my solo ELO ranking?

Wasn't expecting this so soon, I missed the betas because I had to switch devices but I can't wait to hear impressions
