    Love this game! The cross platform is awesome, I have been playing with my wife and son. Wife has an IPhone and my son has a Droid. I have a Windows Phone. I also really love that games are stored and you can go back and retrace every move!

    Great app! Play against a friend or find someone who is about your skill level to play against. Ability to chat is really nice feature. If you have a Windows 8 PC you can switch between phone & PC, seamlessly! This is a definite showcase of the power of Windows 8 & Windows Phone 8. I wish more apps for Windows 8 & Windows Phone 8 were so well done!
