Game rating: I like the base game, and it will always get 5/5 from me. App rating: App contains various bugs, such as locking up after placing tiles, tiles getting duplicatedand preventing "end turn", not being able to place or rotate tiles. Not all could be fixed by going back to the menu and reentering the game, ending games prematurely. In the menu/lobby, a login popup can get stuck. Overall the app feels similar to and as unpolished as many other Asmodee apps I've been unhappy with.

I was wrong in my previous review: you can skip the suggestion about the Google Play account and only enter the Asmodee one. Use the profile tab to search for and add your friends' accounts so they'll show up in the casual game tab. App still has some annoyances. Though the game state must be so comparatively small, it still upwards of 10 seconds to sync on the network. If the sync ever completely fails, it forgets your login entirely and you have to enter name/pass again. Often it'll stick at just a modal "Login" popup and I have to restart. Otherwise the graphics and sound and implementation of the game's mechanics are gorgeous.

It's a good enough representation of the game and enjoyable to play. Mostly, I miss playing with friends, but this is a good time killer without a lot of commitment. It's a little cramped on a phone, but the UI keeps the important information visible. Definitely worth the $0.99. Edit: 4 stars. There are a few bugs that take away from fun. First, the "shuffle" option on always has me play first. It does nothing. Second, sometimes after laying tiles, the game will not go to next phase.
