V 1.7 now live. So you don’t have to use Facebook and can connect for games by email.
Plus lots of other improvements.
We are really trying to polish the whole turn based game using a server thing because the mechanics for these elements in Gobang Social will be carried forward into our other turn based games now under development. For this reason Gobang Social 1.8 is under development and brings a whole pile of further improvements. Many based on your feedback.
