Nice big update. Can't wait to try it out over the holidays.
Have you played the game or are you just listening to RH rants? The only thing complicated are the multipliers and that's not really complicated either. It just adds another layer of things that you are trying to accomplish during play. I think it helps keep the game fresh while other deep games like lotr get stale for me quickly. If you just want to mindlessly flip around then this game is probably not for you. If you like games with deep scoring strategies that have multiple layers to the code then you will like it.
It's different which in my opinion gives it a ton of staying power.
