Brilliant!! I love the fact there are no special permissions. The description is right 'easy to learn hard to master' so keep trying and eventually you will master it, I've just defeated the CPU at level 3 (default difficulty) took me roughly 60 games though which says more about my lack of skill! I recommend lowering the difficulty after a few attempts at the default setting just to get the hang of it. 5*
