Reviews about the game

Paperback: The Game27.12.2018

The worst implementation of a digital game I have ever attempted to play. You get shown the 'board' so you can make your word and once you've done that you get taken out of the game, back into the menu page/lobby while the other player takes their turn. Dreadful implementation and it's such a shame because the physical version of the game is so good. Heavily disappointed. Will never play this again.

I came across this hidden gem purely by chance while randomly searching the store for card based games. A thoroughly delightful game. Aesthetically pleasing, simple to learn, great fun to play. The whole theme gels together well. This has jumped to 1st place in my top ten quick play games! 10 out od 10

[h1]One of the few games that I'm not only disappointed in, but feel ripped off by.[/h1] This game is deeply flawed. The dictionary is arbitrary, leaving out common English words, while allowing the AI to use deeply iffy ones. The worst part is that it isn't immediately apparent, which means you don't realize it until it's too late to return it.

if this game were only single player, I would recommend it. However, the online multiplayer is so frustrating and so broken I would rather the game not include it at all. Not only did I experience error messages when trying to create rooms, but the format of the multiplayer (players cannot view the table simultaneously) seems antithetical to the fast paced nature of the gameplay. If the developers fixed this, I would wholly recommended this game, as it is, I cannot.

The user interface for this game is not conducive to playing the game. You cannot see the gamestate until it's your turn, and afterwards you are kicked out into some lobby. I hope whoever made the actual game got their money's worth, because they should not trust whoever developed the digital version.

Paperback: The Game28.06.2018

If you are Scrabble fan, or a fan of vocabulary games in general, you'll like Paperback. The artwork is perfect for the game, and the rules are simple and straightforward to understand. It is quick to play and a nice well executed casual game. The one exception I will make is that it is not clear how and when to activate some of the abilities that some cards have. For example one of the C cards has an ability that you can trash a card to gain a card of higher value. It is not clear when and how this ability can be availed. It would be nice if the developers could address this and make it clearer. The game is still playable and winnable without making use of the abilities that are not automatic, but if it's part of the game it should be clear how to use this function. It would be nice also to be able to make the window fit the screen, so the artwork can be better appreciated, especially those clever bookcovers of the 'best sellers' that make up some of the victory cards.
