Accessibility Comments: 

This App is not accessible using VO.

I have contacted both Hasbro Consumer Affairs and Electronic Arts several times over the past years to point out the lack of access to this App, to ask that they consider adding accessibility, and to inform them of the resources available to help guide them in designing equal access into their line of simple board / grid-style games.

VoiceOver reads no page elements.

Button Labeling: 

No buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is totally inaccessible.

Other Comments: 

This is another Hasbro board / grid style game I grew up with. I was disappointed to find that Electronic Arts and Hasbro have chosen to make the IOS version of this game inaccessible.
