Epic free games are literally avaiable to download at 11am EST every Thursday. I've gotten used to it and just go there some time after 11am every week.

Nice, i have this for android and it is super fun. Glad i got it for android instead of PC where it is twice the price.

I will definitely add this to my PC library as well.
The AI is awful on Android.

Hoping it's better on PC but I think it's the same core code.

In the old fashioned way, yes, you can just leave the room while the other player plays. Also, I don't think it matters all that much. There's some "attack" cards, but not a lot you can do to dodge them.
Being able to see your opponent's hand matters a ton. If you play against others who know how to play, you will lose, alot.

To 'terraform Mars' one needs to move it to the Earth orbit first. That's a little bit of too much even for Elon Mask, NASA and "Apollo" PR stunt masters.

EST is correct...It's always the same regardless if you live some where that observes daylight saving or not. So if someone uses this site and wants to know when the Epic downloads go live from say Arizona, Iceland, Argentina, India, Costa Rica or any of the many other areas of this world that do not observe daylight savings, 11am EST will always be 11am on the East Coast. For people who live in areas that do not observe daylight savings, EDT means nothing to them.

If however we are talking solely about areas which do observe daylight savings, then yes, EDT would be correct.

Cheers,

Yes. There is. Though it's pretty slow compared to just adding bots. Of course the bots suck.

That is interesting, i lost my first two games against AI on andriod. Then i have won everything since. Whereas playing Dominion against easy AI on android i lose 95% of the time after 30 games using the base game. I finally started doing expansions when they are free, it is still hard but i can win 30% of the time now.

Yeah, I doubt they wrote multiple AIs, and in my experience it is pretty easy on hard on PC. Of course there's still rng, so it's fun.

Honestly being good at tm makes it boring.

I lived abroad in 2019 and still redeemed free games on EGS, called my mom, interviewed for jobs on Zoom, etc. So yes, Daylight Savings Time potentially does mean something even if one doesn't live in an area that observes it. Unless of course, punctuality or accuracy mean nothing.

I think it is the same. I play on PC and ipad and have a win percentage upwards of 95%. I still enjoy it and treat it as a more complex version of the solo game where I try to see how much I can outscore the AI (vs simply reaching a certain score in the solo game).

I did notice the the AI also does a bit of king-making though. They seem to always lower the human players plant production even when it would be more advantageous to reduce the plant production of another AI.
