A team of talented developers was lead on this project by Bradley Cummings, editor of iOS Board Games on BoardGameGeek < http://www.iosboardgames.com/> .

Tysen Streib a talented AI designer  made challenging AI opponents  of many difficulties and play styles. There will be hours of puzzling with these computer opponents. Martin Grider (Oppo Citrus, Chesstris) tied it all together with his excellent development. This team has strived to create a deep experience while opening the game up to new and casual players. For the Win is a fun strategy game with a quirky theme and bright art.

For the Win features the following:

- A quick tutorial to teach you how to play
