It's interesting that it keeps an open tally of each player's victory points and number of each god.

I've seen that done for various games on other sites too, such as Stone Age on Yucata (all end game scores are tallied and open).

When it's a matter of info that all players have access to as the game progresses, and they could keep track of with a pen and paper, it makes sense to me. Over the course of an asynch game, I see no reason to make memory an even larger component, even though it changes the strategy. It seems like a fair trade.

Arbitrarily making truly secret info open (info that other players NEVER would have seen) would be a different story, but I'm not aware of any games that have made that change.

What bugs me to no end about the implementation is that they don't have the city build cost cheat sheet... I know it's not really that difficult to remember, but for some reason it always eludes me.

That bothered me too. You can hover over any city to see the actual build cost, though.

I noticed that too, and agree.

Oh you're right. And it even takes into account if you're the second person etc... That's better.

That's good to know for when I'm on my computer, but I'll have to see how that works on my ipad.

Yeah, that complicates a couple of games I play on my iPad. I don't have my iPad handy, but in this case I expect you could tap them before selecting your card to see the costs.

The worst is in games when you can't tap because the game is awaiting your input.

I wish there was a way that you could hover over the trading house symbol and have it highlight all your trading houses that are on the board. Quite often I will want to figure out what provinces or good types I'm already in and it's a little difficult to tell at a glance. Especially when I'm playing as black, which doesn't jump out quite as much visually.

it seems a good idea, I thought something like that was missing but I didn't know exactly what to highlight (houses for a given good type?). By the trading house symbol you mean the one which reminds your stock?

don't hesitate to post any suggestion in the forum of the game on boiteajeux, there is more chance that we read it.

we have already done the extension, by the way. We will released those maps later.

Yes, there's a little house that shows how many trading houses you have unbuilt. I was thinking that hovering on that and having the cities with your built trading houses highlighted would be a good solution. You could easily see what goods/provinces you're in.

Excellent! Just when I was once again reducing my online gaming, something awesome pops up...

Although in this case, I will hold back. I will be on vacation soon, don't want to annoy my opponents by not making any moves for a few weeks.

I thought they were going to be shutting down after a bit, or am I completely off base?
