I really like this game. However it seems that my latest games have id's between 100k and 200k. Now... Of all those games, a lot probably were played with trial accounts, against Emily or Kate, leaving something like 100k games total for us.

If I play against others, most have 100 or 200 victories. So are we talking less then 1000 people who bought the game? That's something like $30k in total revenue, just enough to have one developer work on it for half a year.

However, the game looks like there is more work then that put into it, and also there is this website. Then the server must be up 24/7... My goodness how does this development team manage??? Or am I missing something? I hope I am...

I think its more like 30,000 licenses.... you only get a ranking if you are fully paid up - and the rankings go to over 41,000.....

they only show the ranking list of people who have logged in in the last 7 days - so I imagine there are people who paid but no longer play.

41,000 * 40 = 1,640,000

I am sure its more complicated than that but that my maths.

The main part of players in the list are trial players.

:evil: Maybe you guys should charge 5$ for trial account after a 3 month free trial. IMHO, those who like the game would most likely purchase the full account. The others who don't want to spend 5 dollars on a truely rewarding game should then not be able to play. Very simple, free for 3 month or more, then pay 5 dollars for life trial membership, then pay 39 for life membership.

Oh, well. Trying to help u guys get more money.
