War on Terror voted 3rd best board game app of 2011!
This week we found out the fantastic news that War on Terror, the application placed 3rd in the Best Board Game Apps of 2011! This is no small achievement considering the site logged over 1 million votes and especially when you look at the high calibre of competition we had to fend off in order to place - Scrabble, Catan, Ticket to Ride, Puerto Rico.
We wouldn't be there of course if it weren't for your support and votes - we are so thankful. It means a huge amount to us to be able to call our first ever app an "award-winning app". Yay!
As you can imagine, this is very encouraging and we're hard at work on the next two updates - the first is to make the app universal for ipad too (we've shelved for now the idea of a separate app just for ipads) and the second will be multiplayer. Unfortunately "proper work" (the sort that actually brings in money) has got in the way lately and slowed things down for all of us, but we'll have more concrete news very soon.
For those of you who haven't tried the app yet, you can download it here.
Also, we'd really like to hear your ideas of what you'd like us to tackle next. Crunch is an obvious choice, but is the demand there? We get the feeling people would prefer to see something new, but that's only a vague impression. So if you have any subject/game ideas, throw them our way.
Let's finish on some random links. Here are two wonderful accounts of two different people experiencing War on Terror, the boardgame for the first time: One; Two. We're so familiar with the game these days, that it's hard to imagine what it's like for someone first interacting with it. But both Low Wen Zhen Yi and "Minstrel and Winnipeg" had the kind of first games that we hope everyone gets to have.

- I have to apologize for not visiting your website more often. I fear my access to such informations is limited indeed. I just wish to say that this 'paying work more important' is a poor excuse not to focus solely on making your 'War on Terror' app universal multi-player. There is only so many times I can buy games from you for my friends before men with dark glasses come to ask more difficult questions of me. Keep up the good work and the actual working business model, eh?John from Calgary - 5 December 2012
