Re: Bug or valid move?

I had a similar bug where 2 Pz was engaged in Trois Ponts, they ran through isolated Werbomont units to engage 30 Inf in Ouffet. Manay and Spa were also occupied by Allies. It was actually a crazy stupid AI move since now that unit is isolated, too. I tried to send a bug report, but the tap, tap and...

Re: Suggestions for BotB

Ok, here's a topical suggestion, but one off from the current discussion. Instead of an on-off switch for in-game sounds, can it be a volume slider? I love the sound effects, but my family hates winter and they say the wind noise makes them feel cold (how's that for an endorsement for how well you n...

Allow me to pile on.

Shenandoah did an outstanding job with this app.

I can't wait for the next one.

Re: Great game! One idea - quicker way to jump between game

I don't know if it's a bug, or what, but if I have the game running in the background, and I get a notification for the game that's up and running, when I open the app I don't see the move my opponent made that created the notification. I see the notification bubble, but I have to go to the main men...

Tournament?

I saw somewhere in the excellent article that was linked earlier that a tournament was forming.

Is there a link to it somewhere for us out-of-the-know people can join? Or, is that the point? :D

Thanks.

Re: Idea for a better Game Center experience

Thanks, I guess if my fingers were fast enough to "commit" they should be fast enough to "cancel". I would like to throw my vote toward a "continuing" option on a completed game. I just had a player resign because he was in a bad spot, but he had a ton of points and had a distinct opportunity to win...

Re: Idea for a better Game Center experience

There've been a few times where I've clicked "pass" inadvertently, or clicked "commit" before I had moved all the units in the activated sector. Since there is no way to undo this, can the "pass" button have some reddish color added? And, maybe the activated sector have a transparent highlight to it...

Re: Game Center Challenges

i didn't make myself clear in the first post

I'm referring to the challenges where you Race to the Meuse and get points. The 'general' game challenge works fine, but I'm not able to challenge someone for the 10 Game Center points.

Re: Losing Interest

With proper leapfrogging, covering flanks, a bit of luck and poor countermoves, you can go up the middle, too. When you feint top or bottom, and see Allied reaction you can move decisively the other way. We don't have to play in all one continuous sitting. You make a move I make a move. Sleep. Have ...

Re: Great game! One idea - quicker way to jump between game

Well, thank you!

I bet there are even more little bits we're missing.

Maybe someone should start a thread: "Buttons, Titles, and other overlooked features of the game"

Re: Losing Interest

I have to agree that your strategy seems lacking. My Game Center ID is "boone737" and iMessage is boone737@gmail.com. send me a friend request and add me to your iMessage and we'll see if we can work out some kinks. Yes, the dice can hate me, too, but with proper strategy, you can plan for such bad ...

Re: Great game! One idea - quicker way to jump between game

When yoiu click menu, did you notice the little icon that comes up in the corner that looks like a grayscale version of the Game Center icon? Click that and you'll go to the next game that is "your turn". One button-one click. It took me awhile to find it, too. But, while we're on the topic: I'd lik...

Re: Chat feature?

I was wondering if anyone has tried to use the iMessage feature in a game. It could be a work-around until a more permanent solution is found.

Maybe when you send a game request to a buddy, you could include your iMessage address and use that for a "chat"?

Chat feature?

I wonder if its possible to include some sort of messaging when you're playing through Game Center. It would be nice to let your opponent know you won't be able to make a move for a hour or so. Then you're not left hanging, wondering if you're still connected. Expecting a turn and none comes. Or lea...

Or you can spearhead across the middle. Play as allied and see how the computer does it.
