The rules seem pretty simple, so I'm assuming this a bug, but any clarification would be welcome.

1 human player, 2 medium AI, 1 hard AI.

About 20 buildings left, I placed my 3 onto desert, then activated Tower to place one in the corner of the board, on flowers, in the last available spot for my tower action. The hex was the only hex highlighted, but repeated tapping of the hex did not place a building, although the hex did "react" to the tapping, turning orange. After several taps, the description of the oasis action appeared. The oasis was in the game, but was not an action I had.

I had already exhausted one edge area, and was about to finish up another, so the tower placement next turn was to be my best shot at the final board for the Farmer and Hermit scoring.

Is there any possible reason I could have been unable to place a tile in the corner?

Apologies for the lack of screenshot!

Sounds buggy. Is it android or iOS?

Looks like this might have been the issue:

Quote:
One bug that certainly does exist is that it is very difficult to play a piece in the upper left corner hex - you can't do so when zoomed in on the board (no matter how hard you try). You have to turn the zoom off and then use your touch screen extremely precisely...


Good to know there is a way around the bug, and precision is no problem when using a mouse.

Ah yes! In find this is a general problem. Not just with the top corners, I usually play zoomed out. There must be some sort of rounding error on some devices.
I hope they consider making some improvements and expansions for this!
