Thanks to PhoneGap for much of it, Alex! This enabled me to use technologies I already know, namely JavaScript, which they basically fire up in an invisible Safari browser window running as the app. I also received help on StackOverflow with questions. Now one thing in particular that required many people for creating this game was doing the actual game testing... not so much to find bugs, but to find out how the game play flows and how the game can be balanced. It's incredible how much one can learn from an hour or two of playing with others or seeing others play... testing a two-player game alone simply doesn't really work at all.

If you have an iPad, I hope you can get this and play it with your friends, I'm looking to gather more feedback, in particular on game play tactics and balance...
