Hey guys,

Just got invited to play this via a mate at Google.  Anyone playing from the forums?  I see there are a few NZ players in the chat.

I've literally just opened it this morning, but it seems like a cool concept.  Any opinions from anyone who has been playing for a while?

I've been semi-trying to get an invite to see what all the fuss is about, but haven't had any luck yet.

Is it any good?

Oh fudge... just checked the app... incompatible with all your devices. Getting really fed up with apps that wont run on a year old tablet or phone. :(

It's because of being in NZ, not because of your devices

Yeah - I had to sideload it.  Running well on my GS3, but it strips the battery....
