We are continuing to work on further expansions. Please don't hesitate to tell us which one you'd like to see next!

Yes. In "Play with Friends" you can leave the app and will be notified when it's your turn again. No pressure though, unlike "Quick Play" there are no time limits.

Yes, of course. Up to five players can play on the same device.

To play online multiplayer, you need to buy the expansion to play with it.

• Can I play with expansions in quick play?

Yes. However currently we limit the combinations of the expansions in quick play to avoid fragmentation of the player base and longer waiting times for games. We try to give three or four useful combinations for quick play. There is also the "Automatic" category that tries to match you up with anyone who wants to play right now.
