The game play is very limited over time, because you end up choosing from the same small number of options each turn. After 4 or 5 games, there's not much more to try out in terms of strategy, and each game just feels the same as the last. For $5, I expected more replayability. And the expansion costs another $3? Too much for too little. There are better value board game apps out there!
It's a nice implementation, but I just don't find the game interesting. Unlike, say, San Juan, there's little sense of building an economy as opposed to just making ad hoc decisions based on the availability of resources.
Ran across a local play bug once so far. This is a great adaptation of the board game. It would be nice if you could place your animals in the farm space you want; the game auto selects for you and that has been rough. Great two player local pass and play, but ran into a bug where playing special building open stall on the last turn took the next turn, mine as first player as well, so didn't get to take my first player turn, taking first player is expensive, so you can imagine the frustration with that bug. Only 1 bug found so far though. It would be nice to have the ability to pick your name and Avatar as well. Thanks.
Great game! But why won't you do automated change of sets every second week? We are stuck with same set for about a month already :( Besides, I know it's hard to work on a game that almost doesn't bring money... But there are extremely few players :( You might consider making paid subscription or donations, or anything else. And you could spend it on more advertising, so we would have more players here :) And have to mention, that lots of players leave the game (they told me that), because of the rare rotation of sets. It's boring to play same set, when you've learned the best strategy. Or even worse - when it is extremely biased to benefit first player. More frequent rotation will reduce the players leaving game...
Strange to have a digital port end up looking more 2D than the actual Boardgame. Everything is so flat compared to the 3D animals and fences in the actual game. Spaces on the board are hard to read, or where you're placing things in your farm. Clouds pass over your farm when you're viewing it and completely obstruct your view for 5 seconds. No undo button is odd when there is no hidden information. Animations are too slow for swapping animals around. Can't view the town when placing things in your farm which could limit your planning. I've accidentally thrown away animals because it wasn't clear the interface for picking which animal I wanted. AI is borderline absurd. Sometimes it goes on a strange kick any only gets one type of animal all game and only gets a dozen points. It will make strange moves like get 3 side boards the first 3 rounds of the game, ignoring huge resource piles. Quite often it will make over aggressive blocking moves at no benefit to itself. I find the animal placement animation confusing and slow, I don't know what the point of watching an animal icon slide to a number and then down to my available pool each time is. There are some bugs, after re arranging animals, the score tally no longer showed me owning those animals. Still a solid game, but could use some refining.
Awesome game, just did update and fixed the move animal crash bug
fixed a reload game bug
