Is there any more info than in that link? Is it multi-player... if so, in what mode? Pass and move, or wifi, or bluetooth, IP (internet)?

Is there an AI...

It does have async play but I don't know specifically what mode it works on. There is an AI for single player play.

Edit: Here we go. Straight from the horses mouth.

I'm hoping it will have pass n play mode too...if you look at their earlier status update (http://www.bigdaddyscreations.com/666/status-update/), it looks like that may be a possibility. Really hoping so!

That's OK Bob. I bought an iPad because Through the Ages was about to be released, back in MayJuneAugustNovember.

Never happened so that game cost me £350 and no game!

So is this the actual board game or is it a digital player mat that we could use with the board game? Boy, would I love the latter, especially!

Bah! I hate that Android tablets always seem to get the short end of the stick release wise. I would even settle for an iphone edition....

I think that might change soon as iPads are down to about 50% market share now... but the reason is, there is a larger customer audience of iPads compared to Android Tabs. How do you think those poor Windows tablet owners feel.. with a 8% market share Windows RT apps always come out last... if at all.

It's not just market share, it's how much more money iOS users spend on apps as opposed to Android users.

In Q1 2013, iOS users accounted for 74% of all app revenue and Android users accounted for 20%. In general, iOS users spend way more money on apps. It's about where a developer has the potential to make the most money. http://techland.time.com/2013/04/16/ios-vs-android/

It is a shame because if more quality games were available on Android, I'm sure people would buy them and that number would start to shift.
