    "I've loved this game since it came out. It's full on strategy and naval clashes. Maybe it's because i'm really into battleships and stuff but definitely one of my favorite games!!"

It's free so why not just download and give it a go. Great way to pass some time while you're sitting around with your in-laws or family."

      "Out of the multitude of card games available for iOS devices, I came across Reiner Knizia's High Society game after reading about it from some recommendation in the reviews of another game. I checked it out and I very much liked what I experienced. It is a card-based auction game based on the tabletop eurogame by Reiner Knizia. If you may be looking to try a new card game you might not be familiar with, then you might want to check it out!"

      "There's so many ads! The game, user-interface, the ability to kill time while waiting or having a scrabble battle with friends is great, but it seems bombarded with so many ads that takes away the fun. What's worse is that after an ad plays, the app sometimes doesn't return back to the game so you've just lost your hard earned points. There is not an option to purchase an ad-free version even when I spend money and purchase coins. The ad experience has deferred me from using and enjoying the pure fun of a good scrabble battle."

This is good when you want to play a board game alone. I'm not good at strategy but have a help tutorial so I could start playing right away. My only real issue is that there is no multiplayer availability. Luckily I have set up my iPad so i can run an android program but others might not be so lucky"
