Wooooohoooo!


The iOS app of this game is FANTASTIC - the user interface is excellent and the game is much fun to play on a tablet.

I have not play through the ages for ages (pun intended) as it is hard to get on the table in my group. The excellent tutorial really eased me into the complex game again and that with a good amount of humour!


Thanks a LOT, ancient Vlaada!

Yeah the tutorial is the best I remember playing in a long time - kudos to whomever did it! The humor reminded me of Sam and Max and some other point and click games from my childhood.

He's a designer, publisher, and programmer! A triple threat!

"You can speed up the process of building your wonder by using 5 purple jewels. You can buy jewels in the store. Nah just kidding"

Me too! I think I stared at the screen in horror for a full 5 seconds before I realized it must be a joke and I shakily tapped the screen again to see the "Nah just kidding" pop up.

Oh that Vlaada, such a kidder! zombie

I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

I spotted one minor typo in the tutorial: "shoud" instead of "should":



I was also waiting to be told that you can't draw more than 3 military cards at end of turn but either I missed it, or it wasn't there. The rule is certainly in place (at least in the game I played). But since it's a frequently forgotten rule in my experience, I thought it would be stated in the tutorial.

It's a fun way to learn the game, for sure.
