    If you want something deep, different and definitely fun to dip into for a bit, this is one I’ll recommend all the way to the bank, where I will then play a card to steal all your money and ascend to gremlin godhood atop my never-ending pile of cash.

    Gremlins Inc is a smart, stylish online board game with tactics both fun and deceptively clever.

    A digital board game that puts you in a role of one of greedy, corrupted gremlins that fight each other over power and money. With intelligent design, amazing artwork and easy to grasp rules, this is a game worth buying. If only it wasn't lacking local multiplayer.

    Gremlins Inc. is a digital board game in which winning demands the use of cunning methods. It is a very special game which all fans of the genre should buy.

    Gremlins, Inc. is a game about deceiving friends and earning money. Good in multiplayer, boring in single player.

    Like all board games, Gremlins Inc is designed to be played with friends. If you're going to play this on your own, it's hard to recommend, but if you want to destroy your friendships by cheating over everyone on your path to victory, this might be a digital board game that's worth your while.

    It feels like they conceived this game on a remote island or in a fallout shelter; it is absolutely devoid of any modern ideas, but offers many wild mutations of outdated ones.

I've not seen one like it for years. It's complicated yet easy to get into just hard to master. The AI on normal will give you a challenge but the real fun is in multiplayer online. There's some ruthless players there. You should give it a try if you're wanting something different and believe you me this is something different. Never see anything like it before. Also, you CAN play OFFLINE now and don't even have to be connected to the internet to play. So that last guy that gave this game a ZERO is lying to you.

    They are updating it everyday and giving most of this stuff away. There's a little DLC to be had but it's cosmetic and not something you have to have to play the core game. They are even making new maps for it. For owners of the core game this stuff is gonna be free. Jump on board before they change their minds. Collapse

    While the game might be fun to play (if I could read the font) the font is so small, smaller than this and if you have bad eyesight I suggestWhile the game might be fun to play (if I could read the font) the font is so small, smaller than this and if you have bad eyesight I suggest staying away. The devs have no solution for those that can't see 1 cm or less font. I think they should have though about that as they made it. It will definitely hurt sales and those that buy it and can't see the font will soon be returning it. I really wanted to like the game and probably would have if I could have seen it. Expand

    Don't be confused by a single-player tag on this game: it actually requires constant Internet connection (yes even for single-player). ThereDon't be confused by a single-player tag on this game: it actually requires constant Internet connection (yes even for single-player). There are no features in this game that can be used without direct connection to the game server (and that's while many dedicated multi-player games provide some offline options at least for practice).
    The game has the most severe form of DRM while its dodgy developer continues to present it as DRM-free.
    Gameplay-wise it's somewhat decent, but 160-something cards are not nearly enough to make it enjoyable for more than several evenings.
