I enjoy it. it's turn baised and takes some time to play a game though waiting for others to make there moves I tend to get up and take my turns and then check after work to see if anyone took there turns so it's like a slow chess match.

Good learning curve, and quite a bit of depth to the combat and strategy. With 6 teams, (albeit you have to pay for each) you can't get bored for at least a couple hundred hours.

Start with the base game, get it on sale if you can, and then if you like it, consider getting another team to change it up, each are quite different so expect to get your butt kicked until you learn what to do and what not to do against each team .

My only gripe is it's entirely random on who you fight, and therefore, you might get a player that's interested in going back and forth immediately, and you might get people who make a move, and then go to work or whatever, and don't take their next move for hours, if not days.

Then you unfortunately get people who never get back into the game within the week allowed for the game to continue, so you either have to wait a week for the other player to resign automatically because its been a week, or quit yourself and start a fresh game with someone else, and hopefully they'll be checking the game for turns more.

My advice, start about 10 games at once, so you know a few will stick and go back and forth immediately. You'll have trouble keeping up at first, :demoticon:

Last bit, it's cross platform so you'll be playing against Iphone users as well as steam players, and soon, android when they release the android version. Your account works for all platforms, no need to rebuy anything.

thanks for your opinions, im going to get it

Very addicting for me too. Cross platform makes it very handy. Totally recomended if the time between turns is not a problem for you.
Easy to learn, hard to master ;)

They are autokicked after a week of waiting now Karl!?! I hope you are telling the truth. I was forced into surrendering due to people not taking their turn for 3 weeks when I played this at first! I gave up and havn't played this for over a year since that frustration. I liked the game other than that huge issue that at the time destroyed it and I vowed never to play again. Please verify to me, is it true it kicks the other play for not taking their turn for a week!?!
