Yup - but if you were purchasing it to play for the first time and enjoy like I was... don't look for a tutorial.

Looks like I'll be downloading and reading the manual... Very disappointed in that most basic of features being absent.

Yep the Manual in the game is better than the actual one though so don't bother downloading it

Also if you ever have any questions the magnifying glass icon lets you click anything and get a full explanation.

I would recommend watching the Grudunza video for a walkthrough.

you didn't understand. We prefer the rulebook to the instructions on the ipad.

In any case, I bought the ipad version and will forget about buying this one irl.

I just bought and tried it, and I'm a bit disappointed.

While the implementation is beautiful and functional, there are some things that bug me:

- Only 1 or 2 players. You have to play with neutral boards.
- There's a FPS counter in the lower left, which is slightly irritating.
- The game is considered a loss as soon as 3 tiles are haunted, even on Initiation level (this is a bug). Edit: The official rules were changed for the boardgame, which I was not aware of.

Not sure that this is a bug. The in-app rules state game is lost when 3 tiles are haunted without mentioning difficulty levels and elsewhere this has been discussed (by the developer) as a design change.

I just double checked the rules here http://www.rprod.com/files/GS_RULES_US.pdf

and they say:
"The Normal mode differs from Initiation on two points:
- The Taoists start the game with 3 Qi tokens, not 4.
- Taoists begin the game with their colored Tao token but without the black Tao token."

So it is still only 3 tiles haunted in initiation.

I stand corrected and edited by earlier post.

Nonetheless, Repos should not only update the French and English rules - the German rules on the website still state that you start with no black tokens and you lose when 4 tiles are haunted on Initiation.

I can't believe they're not planning an iPhone version. Grand shame.

I can imagine your pain but personally I'd hate to play this on my iPhone. As a matter of fact I find it a bit cramped on my iPad!

No tutorial, the the hourglass icon is really helpful. Also, watch the video mentioned earlier. Those two things have helped me learn the game in a day, but wow am I getting crushed!! Definitely have a lot to learn strategy-wise.

There is a built-in rules manual and the spy-glass icon can be used at any time during the game to get an explanation of any icon, power, or ghost.

Many of these things have been discussed in detail in the earlier thread iPad Version?, which is still actively going.
