    "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!!"

      "I love that this solution includes a note about using headphones. I normally don't play games with my sound on, but for this specific scenario I am now excited to hear the beautiful and interesting soundtrack that seems to be a large selling point. I am hesitant to pay for a game, as I usually stick to the free to play games on iOS."

      "Relaxing describing a game infers boredom to me. Again, best implies that something will come along better. The main point is redundant and can be explained in a more simplified manner. I like the Steam page it utilizes the space very well. I didn't like the buttons in the cart area, seemed to throw off the symmetry."

My kids enjoy it too (and can spot the rare gems faster than I can), and we can make it a family activity by competing with each other. Rules are easy to understand and you can succeed whether you buy Coins or not."
