“My recommendation is that if you like Risk style boardgames you should by this now; heck, if you generally like boardgames or similar just buy it anyway – you won’t regret it.” (The Wargamer)
“I really like the game and this will be one that I keep on the iPad. It takes a very different approach, which is very refreshing.” (appreviewcentral)
