App description: Compete to become the most famous ruler of all time as you wield god-like powers over the course of three major Epochs in Egyptian history.


Reviews:

"Reiner Knizia's Ra app is beautifully done." - TUAW

"Ra is another brilliant 4.5 [out of 5] Dimple pleasure." - AppSmile.com

"[Ra] is very stunning and impressive! Keep up the good work!" - Reiner Knizia


Build an empire that will live forever. Collect tiles representing various aspects of Egyptian life and civilization while your rivals try to do the same. Wisely use the few tokens that Ra, the sun god, has given you to earn your place of honor in the Valley of the Kings.

Combining deep strategy with an intuitive and beautiful visual presentation, Ra captures the mysterious lure of Ancient Egypt and will bring you back for more time and time again. Choose your favorite of 8 different Egyptian gods as your avatar, and then discover the true power of the gods as you compete against them in solo play.

With no setup time required, no pieces to lose, and no arguments about the rules, the future of board games is here and Ra gives you exactly what you want -- to play!

How to play:

Tap the draw button to reveal a single tile. The player with the highest sun (token from Ra) begins. A player without tokens takes no action on their turn. When an epoch ends, players receive or lose fame points depending on the tiles they hold. The player with the most fame after three epochs is the winner.

I'm going to buy this regardless, but I just want some clarification. Is the $6.99 the introductory sale price or is this the full price? I only ask because the app description mentions a short term intro price.

What? What do you mean no AI? Or are you saying if no multiplayer you aren't interested, you lost me there.

Description is deceiving then

>>Fast, easy, fun game play for 2 to 5 players

Reads like I need two human players minimum.

Okay, VeganTnT, how is the AI? Codito got some flack for an initially weak AI in Medici, so how was that handled this time around?

One of the best Knizia games, buy it if you can.

Unfortunately, I'm going to wait for a sale. Low on cash lately!
