Saw this on Appshopper. Don't know much about it, but it seems to have some boardgame elements to it.

Normally 1.99, but now it's Free.

Just cause it's free doesn't mean it's any good

Thanks for the tip though.

But in this case, I will say it IS good. It's a solid game, especially for solitaire enjoyment.

Free is a great price for it - I got it for free a few months ago, and I'd gladly pay the $1.99 now for it.

I didn't know the price went back up. Last I heard, the developer decided he was going to just make it free and try to get by with the revenue from the IAP (map editor).

I guess that didn't work out so well... (or maybe he's trying it again. I dunno).

It is a good game though.

It's free for "Because we may" www.becausewemay.com a big cross platform gaming sale for tons of developers and games. I wouldn't wait if you want it free, because it' ll probably go back to being paid when the sale is over.

This is a very solid- boardgamey game. It is also very well supported and see's regular updates every couple of months. I bought it and don't regret it.

Developer here. Thanks for posting this! Yes, this is on sale as part of the 'Because We May' promotion and will go back up to $1.99 when the sale is over on June 1st.

The in-app purchase map editor wasn't meant to entirely replace the revenue from up-front purchases, was just a way to support further development of the game. I'll probably add another in-app purchase for some additional game modes, larger maps, and maybe some customizable flags for your bases in online multiplayer matches.

Had a ton of fun playing this past weekend. Put in a 3-player game with 1 AI and 2 people (pass the iPad). I haven't figured out how to beat the medium mode AI yet; but I'm still learning the game too.
