Well...shit.

I wasn't able to get any construct sexiness going on that game :/
 
I'm gonna to join you guys on Ascension when I'm back in the iPad game in a week or two. Afraid of getting addicted and having withdrawal symptoms, haha.

And I beat AstroLad, i can die happy now. :) that Avatar of the Fallen was awesome, probably the one turn that won me the game lol.
Well done my friend. But I am only a silver trophy. I think rocksolidaudio is the platinum in that game. :D

(Again, too bad Ascension doesn't have Elo like Carc so we could check for sure. Oh how I would love for all board games to have not only persistent rating, but also match history vs. other players so I could remember my record against certain people. As it is Carc has the best stat-tracking out there but even then it's pretty high-level.)

I think I learned Fealty -- went through the tutorial which I thought was quite good though not quite comprehensive (kinda like the Carc one actually). So feel free to invite away. Heel can you add that to the spreadsheet when you get a chance? I'm going to swap it in for Hero Academy in the OP as well when I get a sec. Seems like a solid game though maybe a bit brainburny (so basically perfect for async).
 
Honestly for games like Carc doesn't really matter at all. I'm going on a two-week vacation in a couple weeks myself. NBD really that's the nice thing about async.

Yeah, I have had games take months before, but if I really want more active games I start up a few 2-3 player games with people I know are fairly active like astrolad, mercviper, Roxanne, risotto, bigwinnerx, Etc.

ELO system really would be perfect for most of these games... All Ascension has is a very general win-lose stat tracking for all 2p, 3p and 4p games seperate... :/

I need more practice with a lot of these...my bread and butter game has been Shadow Era to date. The main game I play on iOS these days, but Hero Academy looks pretty awesome. Ra plays really nicely on the iPad, and Ascension worked out well there with the asynch gameplay.

Gonna turn me into a proper iOS board gamer!
 
I have the lite version of ascension and I just can't get into it. I will give it another try though and then maybe buy the full version and get into some gaf games.
 
Playing a few ascension games, I think I have the basic rules down just not the strategy.

Couldn't figure out why people just don't hit the play all button until the time I had a card that lets you discard one of your own, but since it was at the end, I couldn't use it :(

Like it so far, feel free to send invites.

I only ever use the play all button if I have no special cards in my hand, e.g. Only apprentices/mystiques/militia/thatotherknightguycard. Otherwise i like to plan out what I play when :p
 
So the only board game I own is Carcassonne... do I post in this thread or the Carc thread?

And for the record I don't own any Carc expansions yet, so if I've turned down any of your game invites, that's the only reason why. Mike Works wants more game invites, invite him to your vanilla Carcassonne games

This thread. We've merged the Carc & Ascension threads into here and added some additional flavor and resources. Add your name to Heel's spreadsheet as well so people can know you are open to invites. Carc is still the king of iOS board games of course. :D
 
Yeah AstroLad I'd ask a mod to lock down the Carc thread with the new link to avoid any confusion. I think things will be a lot more active if we're all centralized in a megathread.

I guess it would be up to kryptikjoker to do the same with the Ascension thread.

Add yourself to the spreadsheet man. You'll see a list of everyone who has vanilla Carc.

Nah you don't really need to go through the fuss when it's clear from the thread. I've been really impressed at how active this thread has been -- much more so than the Carc thread by itself. imo just need to make sure we keep discussing board game releases in the main thread and dropping links over here when necessary so it doesn't just stay limited to who's in here now.

Fealty has me stoked because Asmadi also publishes Innovation, probably my favorite release from the past three years of boardgaming, and I totally forgot that they've started work on an iOS version. Send me Fealty invites! :D
 
Added Fealty to the spreadsheet until we figure out what to do with Hero Academy and Army of Frogs.

Can anyone confirm that you can't play online with friends in Army of Frogs?
 
I do not like Operation Erradicate. The UI needs a lot of work and the online multiplayer is unintuitive. It's a game that requires communication and collaboration, and this version of the game makes it hard to accomplish that.
 

AstroLad

Hail to the KING baby
Broke the games in the OP down into categories: Light, Medium, Heavy board games, and CCGs. Also added a Most Recent Additions section, currently with Fealty there.
 

AstroLad

Hail to the KING baby
Thanks! I don't have a link for Bang either if you or someone can shoot me one :D

In a couple weeks or so I think we can revisit the list and see if anything needs to come off. Will of course be adding stuff in the meantime.

Here's stuff I am DYING to play right now:
1. Fealty
2. Tigris & Euphrates
3. Ascension
4. Carc!

OH GOD PLEASE DEAR GOD TELL ME YOU ARE NOT KIDDING ME.

If Innovation is coming out on iOS I will literally jizz my pants. Please tell me it's true. Pleasepleaseplease. Oh god. Absolutely one of my at least top3, if not top1 games IRL. Oh god I am so excited right now. If it comes to iOS I will drop everything and only play that.
 
In carc, is it worth buying the river expansion? I have it and inns&cathedrals in the physical game, but not sure it's necessary (have bought inns &cathedrals IAP)

The one thing that kills me about GC invites is afaict you can't see who accepted and who didn't (unlike game implementations of GC invites like Carc & Ascension).
 
On an iPad 3, there seems to be a small hiccup placing a follower on a tile in Carc. He goes on the piece, but about a second after i touch the tile. I guess I'll try completely restarting or something. Anyone seen something similar?
 
So I just found this thread and I added my name to the Spreadsheet.

I'm always up for more Carc games (+ expansions). I usually have a few going but not as many as in the past so I could use some more.

I see Neuroshima Hex in the spreadsheet. That game isn't asynch yet, is it? I own it and have played against AI but I really won't leap in against GAFers until it goes asynch.
 
Won my first attempt at quick play in Carc. I felt bad though, the guy was helping me build my cities...ahhem...hahaha.

Didn't know it wasn't online multiplayer until after I added it. Online update is coming soon though, so I left it on there.

Leave for work and leave Ipad behind. Come back home and have it be my turn in 10 games/ Too much thinking!
Felt the same after I took out my iphone after an exam I had today. Gone for 3h = 3 notifications in Carc, HA and Asc each. Feelsgoodman.jpg

Also, OMFG for Innovation



definitely day1 for me. Seems like it'll be a while until it comes out though :/

Haha just saw your post on BGG AstroLad, so... wait who's developing now? And do we know anything?

EDIT: Also, in an Asc game with Got The Shakes, just got Samael, this is gonna be fun.

Hail to the KING baby
Yeah, I am up for invites in pretty much ANY game. Eradicate, Tigris & Euphrates, Fealty, etc. I'd love if someone would start up a 3-4p game in those.

Our T&E and Eradicate games came to a halt pretty fast lol. I now have Food Fight too, so I'm down to try that out.


EDIT: Food Fight isn't in the list? -confused-
 
Is there 4 people around right now to play some eradicate? I'd be down.


Also, sorry I backed out on the ascension game, I just don't like 4 player ascension. Even 3 isn't really my favorite.

I'm up for some Eradicate this evening. Might not be able to do it totally live but I can definitely take several rounds of turns tonight.
