We played this for the first time last weekend, and we had lots of fun. The game is great, and every aspect (from the box to the card stock to the illustrations, etc.) seems to have been treated with care and a professional approach.

Some bittersweet laughs, unfortunately, were had due to the German text in the app. Some sentences read fine, but many are quite poor.

Luckily, with a digital product, this should be easy (or easier) to remedy.

Re: German translation of the app is atrocious!
I'm not sure "skimp" is the right word. This is the first report of this problem we've gotten. I'll take a look at it. (Or, more accurately, have someone who reads German take a look at it.) Can you give me an example of an error I can forward for reference?

Some might say this makes it even sadder.

The first report of a sub-par translation should come from your proofreader(s).

As I played a friend's copy (and my phone is too old), I can't send you examples right now. I'll take some notes next time I'm over at his house.
