Impressions please! Never played the board game, and the UI looks a bit cluttered. How is it?

The screenshots don't look very promising. I'm going to wait for the TA board game community to weigh in on this one.

Default Game of the Year

These comments have been posted elsewhere as well:

I've been in the beta test group, playing the game for weeks and it is wonderful.

Full rules set with building descriptions etc., all easily accessible from within the game. UI functions flawlessly. Hugely helpful hint system for those still learning how to play. Undo ensures no swipe errors, a common problem with IOS games.

In all, I don't know how this product could possibly have been done any better. Even the background music works well. I found myself humming the tune during a round of golf two weeks ago and couldn't get it out of my head for the entire day.

Le Havre has my vote for IOS game of the year. A magnificent effort.

Great game, well done! The AI seems to be also very good! So far ... five stars from me!

Thanks for that gem!
