I got the beta invite and signed up, but maybe it because I was the only one there, but I couldn't figure out how to start a game and then allow others to join. It seems like you have to specifically invite people to a game rather than waiting with an open table for people to join...

I also couldn't figure out how to start a game. Looks like you have to have the name of other players. I'm ccasin... let's play!

I tried inviting you to a game, guessing that your bgg username is your Mirthworks name. It let me start a game and make the first move. It now appears to be waiting for your input.

It doesn't seem to have waited for you to accept the request to play, and I didn't have to wait for you to make my move. So, it seems to be totally asynchronous.

Hmm... the game appears to be broken. I see you were able to play your ships on my colonist hub track, and I can mine on yours.

Are you kidding me?

Requires Adobe Flash... thumbsdown

So I can only play this at my pc, not on my iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, PS3...

Excitement just dropped from a 10 to a 1 for me.

Another minor bug. Here's the output when I dock at the raiders outpost and steal a card:

Game: Ccasin docks a 1, 2 and 3 at the Raiders Outpost.
Game: Ccasin raids %resource from [object Player].

(Edited to be less mean)

Strange, I only see one colony on the hub track.

i already got an email back from the designers. said they did that in purpose becuase there are not 5 tracks for the 5 player expansion. it still should only allow a max of 3 docked though. so aesthetic issue currently.

There should be a button that says End Turn on the right.

Try reading this thread, or the rules before you call it broken. It's essentially because of the possibility of a 5th player.

Also, when I visit a game where it's my turn, it keeps telling me that it's a "new game" (even if several turns have happened). It doesn't seem to have any way to show me what happened since my last turn or to communicate with my opponents.

...

Right. I am getting game information from a feed on the right, but only actions I've taken. And, it doesn't seem like there's anyway to kick a player if they don't want to be kicked.

More minor things:

- Can't find a way to exit back to the main menu

- Can't find a way to resign a game I don't want to be in

- For unstarted games, the front page doesn't tell you whose turn it is

I dunno if we're going to hear back from Filadin, this game might be dead in the water.

Is the site intended to be real-time or asyncronous?

Alright, I think I'm going to call it for the night. I guess it'll just have to be a "pbem" instance of AF. The interface is a little weird but I think I makes a fair bit of sense, but they need a public lobby, better game feed, and an in-game live chat.

Edit:
Also it doesn't seem to be able to let me "Cancel" a game.
