I may be way behind here but is this no longer on the App Store? I was reloading stuff on my iPad and this one says it's no longer available. That is a real bummer!

Maybe it depends on your device. Somewhere along the way they updated the app and made it basically unplayable on my iPad2.

I saw this post and I have an iPad Mini with Retnia display. I went and checked on it annnnnd nothing. My I was talking with my girlfriend who has the first Ipad Air and she also checked on the Store...its not displaying there for us either.

Kind of scary since this is one of our favorite games and we're both still hoping for multiplayer considering how far apart we both live.

Hrmmm, let me write to Game Salute and see what Dan says. It's all under their account on the App Store.

Thanks. Game Salute is still interested in this -- this is primarily an issue of my own scheduling -- not theirs.

In the past I have not been able to download certain apps or books from US store and found a fix.
Go into iTunes settings and change your country address, works as a fix to download and simply revert back afterwards

Thanks for checking into this Clint. I have an iPad air 2 so it seems like it should be able to handle the app. It's been awhile since I played (obviously) but it has always been a favorite.

This seems like an awful big hassle. I went to iTunes settings to try and it wouldn't accept the change unless I provided a valid address in (I picked the UK) the country I picked. I'm sure I could fire up google earth or some such app and come up with an address that it may accept but it would just be easier to download the app from the App Store that I purchased it from.

For Hive try checking the iPhone apps instead of iPad apps.

Hey everyone - we have some progress! Seems there was an issue with iOS that we needed to get fixed which has now been done. You should find the game back on the App Store, good as new, in the next few days.

Thanks for the update. That good to know.

Will it be still compatible with iOS 5.1 on my old iPad?

I believe that it should, yes. One personal goal of the project has always been to always maintain backwards compatibility with the iPad 1.

Huh, and here's me thinking it must have been replaced by this.

Nope, that's something that we've not authorised!

I just checked and though the game's not yet back on the App Store, we expect it to return shortly.

Online multiplayer for this one would be the best! Clint you have done an amazing job with the app so far. It is what got me interested in the physical board game. Great stuff!

Are there plans for an online multiplayer at any point?

Development on online multiplayer has started, but it stalled due to unrelated real-life circumstances. Game Salute is actively interested in me finishing the online multiplayer, but I have not yet scheduled the work onto my calendar.
