I know I'm not this bad of a player. The solo campaign is downright frustrating and not in a good way. I seem to be unable to progress at all past the townsfolk stage. Being forced to go first can be a disadvantage. The AI is always one step ahead since you can't really recruit before them unless you are lucky enough to get a cheap guy in your draw. Then, in the late stages it makes it impossible for you to get to the pawns to make the moves you need to make to win. It's just needlessly complex.

A very strong digital adaption of a great boardgame. It's my favorite worker placement game on digital. The animations help bring the game to life. I've played about 20 games without a noticable bug. The game loses a star for its multiplayer experience. The asynchronous times are not adjustable and just too long. This coupled with players who have abandoned their games makes for very slow game progression. I also don't see a way to friend other players if I don't know their email or friend code.

Great tutorial got me started quickly , and it's a wonderful game with a decently challenging AI. However... I dropped my rating from 5 stars to 3 once I started trying to play online. The online experience is excruciating, with repeated crashes and necessary force-quits. Sometimes it takes 4 or 5 attempts just to play my turn. The friend I play with has an iphone, and has had similar experiences. So: fantastic game for solo play. But VERY buggy and frustrating to try to play online.
