HI all,

We own the game - but it rarely makes it to the table, so I would say i/we are both still novices.

Mostly I am interested in the app to practice and keep the rule fresh in my head.

It is worth purchasing with those goals in mind?

Yes, very.

AI is not up to average players standards but will definately do for beginners.
If your goal is to learn the cards and keep in touch with the rules (or straighten up some you may have missed), this is a very good way to go.

Yes, indeed, it's worth the price. I simply want to echo Alex's comments. I, too, am a beginner with less than a dozen plays against human opponents, with a .500 average. Against the AI, I've won around 10% of my games.

If you want to play a game on-line let me know.

Cheers,
Joe

Worth the price? Nah, it's worth a bit less!

Definitely worth it. I own the Deluxe cardboard version and it rarely makes it to the table, but with the app I have multiple games ongoing. I'm not a strong player - still learning the intricacies of the cards - but I think I'm about 50/50 with the AI...

tl;dr - app is great, buy it.

Yes, the iOS version is worth the price. As already noted the AI not that strong.
