  Bug: iPad Local Game Mon, 09 July 2012 07:52
My husband and I have a problem when we play a Local game on our iPads. The game crashes in the middle when he tries to take more tickets. It usually happens when he already has 5 tickets and he tries to take more. I host the game and he joins my game using Bluetooth. We found that when we used WiFi, that the connections would drop just as he finished his turn, so his iPad thought it was my turn and my iPad thought it was still his turn. When he tries to re-join the game, the game doesn't know the correct person's turn and it is just stuck...so we have to start over. That led us to only using Bluetooth.

We just finished trying to play but gave up. It happened 4 times in a row. I always send the report when I restart the game, so hopefully you have seen the reports come in. This is a very frustrating bug. I hope you will be able to fix it.

Hi LM_Sally,

We have received similar report and fixed part of the issue (to be released in a future update).

In the meantime, we recommend you to:
1. Choose the fastest device for creating the game (for example if you one iPad 2 and one iPad 1, choose the iPad 2 to create it).
2. If it seems your bluetooth connection is more reliable than your wifi, completely turn off Wifi on both devices (otherwise you are not 100% sure the used network is bluetooth).
3. Always keep the devices close to each other (less than 5 m). If you need to move away for a while, leave the app on both devices (click on the home button). Hence, when you come back, the 2 apps will be in the proper state "Waiting for other players to reconnect" before successfully re-connecting.
4. If a disconnection happens and one of the devices does not show the reconnection dialog (it means it did not realize the connection fell down), force it to pop up by leaving the app (home button) and coming back immediately.
