Got it almost right. I believe the proper term for their horrible currency is 'Gokoins.' I'd rather buy Itchy & Scratchy Bucks.

Making Fun (who seem to be handling the technical side of things) have a number of other games in existence, though I'm not sure if they've done an iOS game before. They aren't the same people that launched it. I wonder if they'll still try to sell all the expansions for $45 dollars.

Tourney update:

Kestrel3d 206

Blahness 166

Good game! I wasn't seeing any of the appropriate good plot quests early so I shifted gears to buying some of the better resource buildings with the adventurers I would need later. It seems to have paid off!

Overall, that's good because:

1. Playdek's app is generally rock solid
2. We'll still get Android and PC versions
3. Tournament support seems to be still in

The only bad thing is that Playdek's online support (outside async with friends) is just awful. So will they actually be able to implement good tournament support as well as some sort of matchmaking system? Those were the two reasons I backed the kickstarter in the first place and I would hate to see that go.

Really?

This seems like a much better solution and I backed the kickstarter despite owning the iOS app.

Blood Bowl coming to tablets in early July

The digital version is being produced by Cyanide Studio, which made the original PC version back in 2009 and is releasing an updated version “soon” called Blood Bowl 2. It appears that the tablet version will be based off of this new, updated version.

Blood Bowl will have single player matches vs. AI as well as a solo campaign, but the meat of the game is in its multiplayer options. You can play hotseat matches on one iPad, or go cross-platform and play in a permanent online league.

What's your name on Yucata?
I'm playing a few learning games of Russian Railroads at the moment. It's a bit daunting but once you get to know the iconography and the scoring its ok. Lots of points.

Same name; karkador

It's not a very thematically coherent game, but it's pretty basic worker placement with a lot of different options for generating points. And yeah, lots of points!

A tip: you need high attack ships/bases to take down his bases ASAP before it snowballs. You also need outposts to defend against his attacks.

I've never played it on BGO. I looked into it now to see how it looked.

Maybe it comes down to a matter of taste, but the BGA implementation looks more like the physical game and less like a Windows program? I like it just fine on BGA, and have played it several times, though BGO looks functional, too.

BGA games all have a common interface, though, so once you've adjusted to it, you can play lots of different (and great) games there.

It's out of print, so don't buy the overpriced copies on Amazon (it's originally $15 while the Amazon price is $40). I think the second print will be out late July/early August.

Also, the iOS version was submitted to the App Store a couple of days ago.

You're not going to see a lot of boardgame ports to those platforms I'm guessing given the majority of development is on mobile recently, though it looks like Twilight Struggle's KS raised enough to develop versions for those platforms at least.

If anyone is starting any games any time soon, feel free to add me. I'll buy expansions if I need to. Bigwinnerx. Gracias. :)

They wrote me they will release it as soon as it gets approved (so it won't be held for some particular day and should be out worldwide, not the usual timeline nonsense).

I applied for the beta but nothing so far....looking forward the game a lot (I fear they will publish just before Witcher 3...so it will be a while).

How is the game so far?

I can run it if you want.

I think prizes are a great idea too. I can add in another prize too, we can figure something out I'm sure.
