Hi,
I saw there is a randomizer card for Cupertino...but in the list of new Wonders, I'm not seeing a board for Cupertino. Is there a board that just isn't listed? Or was the card created by itself?
Thanks.

Cupertino is the special wonder included in the 7 Wonders companion app for iOS
Its function varies based on Apple's stock price.

I'm aware of what it is and does. I'm just not sure why there is a card for it, if there's not a physical board for it.

I'd guess because the creator wanted a 100% complete set of randomizer cards for every Wonder that exists.

Personally I use the ios app for randomization (and reference) but not for scoring; maybe some people don't like to use the ios app for wonder-randomization either.

I was actually hoping that they had made a physical version of the Wonder. I don't actually understand how a digital-only wonder works if you're playing with other people.

It would be difficult because I think the app actually queries the stock price.
I have played with my ipad on the table, it takes up a tiny bit more space, but everything lines up and it works just fine.

We figured that for the people who do own that board, they would want a way to include it in their randomization. As such, it would be silly NOT to include a randomizer card. That would be like not including the cards for Catan or Manneken Pis, which are the 2 other promotional boards.

I'm curious if they wan't to release Cupertino in carboard form in the future or it will stay exclusive to ipad. It bothers me even more bacause there are PnP versions of other promo wonders (Catan and Manneken Pis) on Repos site, but not Cupertino...

If I remember correctly Cupertino has only 2 versions: High (+3gold, opponents lose 3gold), Low (+1gold, opponents lose 5 gold). It would be easy to implement - just check the apple stock and choose right board! Or just choose random one.

Cupertino is actually a 3-sided board.
High, Low, and B (or A, I can't remember which)

There are actually 4 "sides" to Cupertino:

Side A, when stock is high:


Side A, when stock is low:


Side B, when stock is high:


Side B, when stock is low:

When I posted my last comment, I had yet to see the 2 B sides. I have seen it since then, but thanks for giving all 4 screen shots in one place!
