Looks interesting..

First time I think this might have happened that both a "parent" and the "smaller" spin off board game have been made available in App form. I wonder if this is causing an app pricing headache, in that, is there an user expectation that the the Puerto Rico and San Juan apps will be relatively priced in a similar way to their hard copy versions. devil

Well, recall that when San Juan debuted, it was at a $25 price point (at least here in the US) and was roundly criticized for that fact, given that Puerto Rico's MSRP at the time was probably under $30. I remember the threads here on BGG: '$25 for just a deck of cards? No way!'

Of course, now (8 or so years later) that price doesn't look so bad....

I used to play the free java version of San Juan quite a bit a few years ago. Definitely will pick this up especially since it'll have ipad 3 retina from the get go...shame on hacienda for not having it although they'll add it later.

The 2-4 players appears to be just the number that can be involved in the game - any of which could be AI, from what I can tell.

I have a curiosity about creating board games for pc or mobile.
Did you have to ask permission to the owners of the board game to create the iPhone version?
Did you pay any rights?

Sorry for the confusion. You can of course play ALONE against either one, tow or three AI-Opponents. Or together with a (human)friend against one or two AI-Opponents.

@Miguel: In the case of San Juan we did not have to ask for permission or pay the rights of the board game, as ALEA (manufacturer of the boardgame) is a 100 % sister-company of Ravensburger. Normally you have to get the rights for a digital port of a boardgame.

Thank you for the clarification... But I did misread the original post so it was really my goof.

But the app sounds great! Any word on how close it is to release?

Thanks,

Will the two San Juan expansions from the Alea Treasure Chest be available in the iOS app?

Thanks for the enlightenment mate
I think in my case i would have to ask for permission to make a mobile version of a board game.

thank you as i'm really looking forward to this but a little clarification: you're saying the app was submitted a little while ago, has been approved by apple, and will be sitting there all shiny and new in the app store waiting for me to download on thursday? the updates we usually get around here is that an app will be submitted on aug. 2 and then we wait another 10 days before it hits the store. is the former or latter the real deal? thanks!

Wasn't this made by the Carcassonne devs?

Edit: NVM, they're making Lost Cities.
