This is and always will be a firm favourite game of mine as far as the tabletop version goes. Unfortunately though, I was sorely disappointed to find that after paying almost £5 for an app, that I can't play my partner or friends on the game! This needs a pass and play mode or the ability to alter the AI to a human player, and most definitely a friend's list as my close friends all bought the game and we can't play one another!
Update: the Ap does indeed allow you to see the opposing game states, I now have more of a request. It needs to be more apparent, thr beauty of thr board game is the quick glance, the ap doesn't have that. The GUI is very small, and the need to swipe detracts from the game play. This ap next major update needs to include the ability to see non adjacent players game state! This is very important information and is an integral part of the game. Without this, this game will never be any where as good as the physical game.
The core gameplay is solid and I haven't encountered any bugs so far. However, the game is missing some crucial features, such as seeing the wonder stage requirements of the other players (or if they exist I haven't been able to find them). I'm also missing the promotional Catan board as a playable option, I have the board with my physical 7 Wonders game and it offers a very interesting playstyle. Hopefully Catan, Leaders, Cities, Babel and the Wonder pack will be added soon. Overall this is a great way to enjoy this marvelous board game when you can't schedule a gaming session with your friends in real life. A few updates and this will be a 5/5 mobile game adaptation of my favourite board game of all time.
Played tutorial and first local offline game and all looks good! Online games seem also to work well. However one glaring omission: online invitation/friend's list. Developers, can you please implement that in a future update?
Great implementation of the table top classic. Offline ai mode is really enjoyable and fast paced. Only improvement I would like to see is to look back at the boards of non-'neighbour' opponents at the end of the game. Frustrating only seeing that an opponent had won without being able to see what they did in the game and learn from it. Otherwise a great phone-based port of the boardgame.
The app and game implementation works well, but this app really needs a 2 things: 1) a "local mode" either Pass and Play or Bluetooth/WiFi network so you can play with friends. without going online to try and find each other. 2) Being able to set dummy AI hands for people who only have 2 players, or want to play with a greater player count, similar to what the Ticket To Ride app does :)
