App description: Kingdoms is a clever tile-laying game by top eurogame designer, Reiner Knizia. In a medieval kingdom, you must scout out resources and hazards to decide where to build your mightiest castles. Commit too soon and you might discover a tribe of ogres right next door, but commit too late, and your opponents will grab up all the real estate!

Six different opponents, each with their own personality, challenge you at a variety of difficulty levels to make the game very replayable.

Kingdoms is built on the same successful MobileEuroCard platform that was used to create Reiner Knizia's High Society and Reiner Knizia's Money. Simple gestures allow you to grab and move tiles. Everything is animated, for a colorful play experience.

This newest version uses Game Center for leaderboards and achievements. We plan multiplayer play for a future release.

sweet all over this. It does get a tad nasty and has some randomness for sure but it's a nice little math game.

The funny thing is I have no proclivity for math at all. However, I LOVE Knizia games, and actually do pretty well at them (except for Samurai dammit). This looks like another winner.

Knizia strikes again! Another great board game.

As far as Multiplayer, I have not seen any option for anything besides single-player. So there seems to be no multiplayer at the moment, strictly a single player game as it stands now.

Well it doesn't have hotseat (suck an egg). Oh well. You can play only AI opponents so either 2, 3 or 4 player game. I wish you could tap the score screen and then view the board so you could see the calculations at the end. Helps if I'm trying to explain the scoring to my kids for instance.

Oh well looking forward to Modern Art (oh please have hotseat for that one) even if it requires tapping on hiding our money and cards from the other players.

Also two from Michael Schacht...I'm hoping China (aka Web of Power) is one of them.

This is great news. It does kind of suck that there is no hotseat or online but maybe they will add them in the future, if not online then hopefully at least hotseat for all the iPad owners.

We should be seeing Reiner Knizia's Ra hitting the App Store soon too. I think the devs (who also did Medici) said they were hoping to have it available by Halloween.
