I didn't like it at first but kept playing anyhow. And i am starting to enjoy several things about it. I am not quite ready to pay a subscription for it. I'd rather pay one-time purchase. But with SmartGo that was renamed and i lost my old purchase i can see how it might not change much in the end. Maybe something less than 50$/year? It's totally usable for free actually. And i find the tickets that takes an hour to recharge useful for my pace. Failing the problems after two tries is good too.

It's helping me learn some beginner strategies. My biggest compliant is that after doing about an hour of the tutorial puzzles, I still cannot beat the easy level ai opponent after about 10 matches...like not even close. I dunno if I am just not understanding the game but it's feeling like an unfair challenge that I'll never get past, and I have to wait another day to practice against ai again. I also wish the app could tell me where I'm messing up, because I have no idea.

Definitely great to get you started... I just think it's such a complicated game that there needs to be a beginner mode with AI walking you through a game, explaining it along the way. Overall I think they do a great job explaining moves and things... I just think it needs to be done during a game to truly understand them. I also only have the free version so maybe it's in the paid.

Thanks for the review! We're still working on more detailed walk-throughs for beginning players. In the meantime, check YouTube for some useful videos about how to play on small boards - in particular, we like the series by Jonathan Hop and Nick Sibicky. There’s also great content about 9x9 strategy on Twitch by Steven Hu.
