We had the chance to check out this exciting new, technology/board game hybrid while at Gen Con, and it does not disappoint. It has so many bells and whistles that it’s almost impossible to not give it a try. For starters, it’s ready to play right out of the box with prepainted minis. You simply need to install the app on one of the approved devices (that literally may be the only drawback I can think of, as my dinosaur iPad is not current enough to handle the app), and you are ready to go. The app teaches you how to play the game as you go, so there is no sitting and reading through a lengthy rule book before you give your new game a try.
But the best perk about having this game is since it has a digital component to it, it will continue to grow and evolve and you will enjoy the benefits in this through updates for the app- the first of which has just come out! The update will take effect automatically the next time you connect to the app and give your knight’s abilities a stronger impact on the game, a fresh look at activation costs, and rebalance the Ancient Ones’ Army Point Values to reflect their true worth in your army. Not to shabby!
Are you enjoying the crossover into technology in board gaming?
