    I quite like the physical board game, and I was enjoying this, even with the rough edges, until... I realised that every game after a restart was the same (in terms of tiles provided). Fix your random number generator!

    Really intriguing and fun game. Only irritating thing is that rotating the pieces can be fiddly.

    Addicting and enjoyable, though it is too easy and I win every game now. There needs to be a more difficult level. Love the music too.
