Yeah not being able to choose the resource is the best way to do it IMO. I only asked because I thought I had read somewhere that you can edit them.

And we really need some competition here in Edmonton, because right now it looks like it's me, and some girl who is based out of Calgary.

Ha! You're taking territories from my buddy ... she's going to be pissed! My wife and I on the way home were discussing how awesome this cheerio character is. I tried for so long to take some of those but she'd always take them back. We're cheering for you ... just steer clear of Liam land (north and south) and we won't have problems.

If you are enjoying the game it would be awesome if you'd take a moment and rate it in iTunes if you haven't already.

Libraries, Starbucks and relatives: These are your key strategic points. My relatives now wonder why I am visiting so much and why I am so hyper and well read!
Hey Chuckles (or any of the developers...),
How did you make it work for your iTouch? I picked up the app in the app store but it won't go onto my Touch saying it's incompatible - I have the latest software version tho....I am so confused! LOL Either way, happy to have thrown in my $1 for fellow CPers.

Thank you very much for supporting us. I think the reason it may not work is because when we submitted it to Apple we put iPhone only because we did not want to disappoint people with iPods as you can only take over territories where you get wifi (my situation). I think when we submit an update we will see if we can flip it so iPod folks can play as well.

Ahh okay good to know - I grabbed the app cuz it sounded like you could use it with your iPod as long as it was connected to wifi (and while stuck in the Hat, thought "why not conquer all while here?" LOL). I'll wait for some updates and see if it works later on. Thanks Chuckles!

Haha always nice to have someone on your side! I think over the next few days that stretch of Glenmore between Sarcee and Crowchild will go from red to purple! Hopefully she doesn't get too too mad and starts trying to take of my little empire im building out here!

The patch north of glenmore on crowchild is of particular significance in terms of resources. Hammer and gold ... It's a valuable couple of km's!

I just got app this last night. I haven't played around too much but I now own my neighbourhood. Pretty cool app. I wish I had this when I was in SE Asia in September. Neat app idea.

I take it that this game uses 3G internet? So I would be extremely unwise to expand my empire when I visit the U.S. in a month?

Definitely expensive depending on your plan. Sometimes your phone company will give you a deal if you phone in advance.

I notice Rogers will let you buy a pack of data to use internationally. I would imagine Telus and Bell are the same.

Are there any plans to give us notice that we got attacked, other than by going into reports?

Should be fine if you can find some Wifi though? Lots of free Wifi in the US, depending on where you're going.

What a brutal day. Lost my home territory and the dome. If Yeller is on here please note I will destroy you. Also whoever owns somerset needs to know I'm going to nuke them in the morning. I'm going to let them accumulate troops all night too so it's extra demoralizing.

We'll look into it. It might get annoying for some people though so it could be an on/off function.

I know that when I got attacked over 20 times yesterday I would have found the alerts annoying...not as annoying as getting attacked though.

Haha! I was crushing you there until I suddenly went from 3000 troops to 3? Oh well. When I take it back I'll change the name as well!

Boy..sounds like you had a bad night Russic. It's really funny what lengths you will take to acquire territory after a couple of beers.

Loved what you named the saddledome territory by the way..... Game on!

Ya it would appear the nuke attack was introduced at the worst possible moment for you. We are now locked into a battle of stubborness that I don't intend to lose. I finally found a use for the old iPhone I upgraded from ... it's now my gate keeper.

YOU. My buddy and I were cursing you all night. I ran out of battery so I didn't see what happened until I got back to my car and plugged in.
