The games dice a rigged. The game either makes the game too easy for you or screws you with every night placement and dice role. Certain characters (usually winning ai) role 7s constantly moving from themselves to you. Then it roles the number several times while its blocked. Its bunk, and doesnt seem to have any randomness.
I love the board game but I feel like it is not rational. There is no way some of the scenarios would happen in real life. I play on the hard setting and the players don't get any better, the game just helps them a lot more. Play online against real people or just be okay with playing 3 against 1.
Often get a black screen when first loading the app (home, end, restart to fix). Randomly shows options screen (online) in foreign language with no apparent option to correct. Online "time out" inconsistent, sometimes I see an "other players waiting" after just a few seconds but wait minutes for other players without any option to vote kick.
This is a great game with a couple of issues. If you mute the sound in the settings menu and then turn on the music and effects again, the audio lags and it sounds terrible. Also, a minor issue, all the lock icons in the game constantly reminding you what expansions and modes you don't own, make my purchase feel like my money was spent on a lite version of the game, which is just terrible. Just put everything I don't have access to in its own menu without "locks" sprinkles across the game.
Is there any update on the incompatibility issue for Pixel phones when they upgraded to Oreo? I still can't play the game... Edit: after the update today the issue is fixed. Thanks Dev team!
Edit: the updated version now supports Android O. Solid game play. 5 stars! Previous:: Justchased the game and it will not start at all. Just a black screen. I have a Pixel phone with plenty of storage space.
