Where can the iOS one be found? It doesn't seem to be at the app shop (which makes sense if it isn't an official port), and while I can find the last unofficial Android port its page didn't seem to mention an iOS version. I googled last night but had to leave before getting far.

Whilst poking around a few weeks ago, I found several mentions of a game called Tanto Cuore (think I spelled that right), which was designed by a fan of Dominion who felt frustrated that he didn't have a mobile version of Dom so he ported the rules over to a new ip.

So yay, I bought it!

The gameplay is certainly... strategic enough. I guess. Production values are very high.

Did I mention the designer is Japanese?

Did I mention the designer was previously known for dating sims?

Have I mentioned yet the concept of the game is to become "The King of Maids", and to collect what amounts to a public and private harem?

I was told the skeevy theme wasn't outright obscene, and this is true. But still, we're talking about a game where you power up each turn by collecting and playing a particular set of cards where one of the underage-looking-maids is caught dry humping a heart shaped pillow. Or two. Or three. (Pillows I mean, not maids.)

So I just decided to wait until a proper port of Dominion (and/or until the current version is bugstomped into shape), and deleted it from the phone.

But if anyone is feeling very desperate this valentine's day...

Sounds like Fortunes of War

So yay, I bought it!
wait, you have to *pay* for apps?!  Who knew?

Always a good sign for a mobile game

Did I mention the designer is Japanese?
No.

Did I mention the designer was previously known for dating sims?
Oy.

Have I mentioned yet the concept of the game is to become "The King of Maids", and to collect what amounts to a public and private harem?
Wait, this is sounding promising

well now

Or two.
hey there

Or three.
w00t!

(Pillows I mean, not maids.)
oh.         




bummer.

Hey, if you're on a 'droid, Androminion is definitely worth it, now that the v3 UI has been unfuggled

But if anyone is feeling very desperate this valentine's day...

paging Gus!

Alas, I'm on iOS not on Android.

Fortunes of War sounds promising though; I'll check into that... CURSES! not on iOS either...

Meanwhile, here is a Starlit Citadel review of the physical card game. The mobile version is just like this but with more, um, sound effects. (Not entirely what you're thinking.)

I just finished an Androminion game where I ended up with all 12 colonies at the end of a 4-player game
