I've had this game for almost 1 week and have played many times and can't help but notice a few bugs. After playing the basic game for a while the icons that let you know how many items you need to trade in for development cards disappear. Also when playing Cities and Knights the development cards don't even show up at all. I've tried registering so I can play online and it won't let me pass the main sign up page. I'm sure there are many more bugs that I haven't noticed yet. Other than that this is a great game!
Development cards disappear as the games advance, so when you want to use them, you have no idea which one you select and end up wasting them. Also ridiculous how often the AI get Monopoly and Knight cards! Get real! Why bother with "easy, medium, hard" settings when it's clearly just designed to cheat? Why not write the player AI as strategically smarter, not just defy realistic odds? There is very little skill required, when the game cheats like this. Lazy production, imo.
Excellent game mechanics. Touch functionality is near perfect. It's great practice until you play the real board game. Bad news is that the AI and "random" dice rolls are annoying. Every time you have >8 resources a "7" is guaranteed to follow, it seems. Plus the AI has a way of racking up Victory Points and knights to play the Largest Army card. Again, good practice, but it can be really frustrating to lose when you're so close most times.
As others have posted, the computer A.I. is horrendously overpowered. Expect to be robbed non-stop once you take the lead. Also don't plan on trading for anything you need.
Enjoyed this game alot so far! Couple of suggestions: 1. Ability to modify settings when it is not your turn. 2. Vibrate or other alert functions that can be on or off to notify you when it is your turn or if there is a trade request. For those who space out such as myself. 3.Ability to check how many development cards, house or cities you have left when it is not your turn. Very fun to play!
Good version of the game board. AI is OK, but get used to the robber going on you if you pull ahead.
