    "My boyfriend and I are a competitive duo. We own just about every board game imaginable. Recently we decided to move to all app based games as we kept loosing all the pieces to the physical games. The one we reach to the most is Scrabble! Especially when we're both stuck it work it always passes the time."

    "Agricola is a super fun game but the game play can be very slow even though the goal of the game is clear. It's very playable IF you have time to burn. It was expensive and I don't see myself playing this a lot because of the time investment. It's cool that you can play alone. Like I said it was expensive but it's also very high quality, so YMMV. "

    "The premise of this game suggests a fun and involving scale of continually various themes and experiences for which to take on. This game seems appealing to a large scale of people both young and mature. The problem with this game is its poor user ratings for not the game content itself, but the poor performance which seems to plague the ability to actually enjoy this game. Until these problems are corrected, this game seems destined to fail. If the player usability improves by very measurable means, then this game stands a good chance at success. As of now, poor performance dictates that this game is not ready for consumer use."
