    Also, is this a virtual board game or is it a RPG that just looks like one?

    Was fun but I had to uninstall already. Waaaay too buggy. Game will ask you to do something yet it is impossible to execute, example: choose in which region to place "blah". Clicked every inch of the map and still cannot place what they are asking me to.

    Earlier, games said I had 2 actions I could still complete, however, regardless of the action I selected, I was unable to do anything.

    Very disappointed in this game. Fix the bugs and it will be golden

    Game Impressions


    Despite the Bugs & Glitches in the Game I did upgrade my first rating of 1/5 to 3/5 since a 4/5 or even an 5/5 does require at least in my eyes more then adding some Videos to teach you a Game while being most of the time still bugfree and therefore 3/5 seem to repesent the current qualty of the Game and it`s Content & Features more accurate then my old Rating of 1/5.

    I would like to point out that I hate, and I mean I "really hate with such a passion" that it`s almost not normal anymore when Developer/Publisher are just too lazy to add InGame Tutorials to their Games and instead use over different plattforms the same Videos to teach you their Gameplay Core Mechanics.

    It just put me so out of the hole Game that I usually ask Apple for a refund if I see something like that in a Game because there is absolute no reason besides being an lazy ass if a Game is working on any Device but the Developer is still at the same time just too lazy to create an InGame Tutorial that does take me through a Game Step by Step instead of demanding from me to watch a 30. Minutes Video that does try to explain to me what the Game is about.

    I'm actually quite impressed! I've never played any witcher games and despite a sound bug that causes the game to lag really badly and a recently noticed quest glitch it's pretty awesome! It wasn't too hard to understand either,only took 2-3 games before I was winning with 30-60 vp's :D

    You give me good reasons to hold off untill the game is patched. Pity, was ready to buy, but thanks anyway.

    Yeah but look at card board games like Talisman or even the card battler called Yomi or better yet The Banner Saga. Also, I read that a Mac release is possible, but nothing on the App Store so far.

    It`s always very hard for me to judge a Game fair when the Bugs in it are so clear that someone would have to be blind or have so much luck to don`t encounter them in their first gaming Hour that some Publisher are pretty pissed at me for pointing at those while others are completely ignoring them while they are even viewable in their Online Previews/Reviews which makes the hole thing sometimes even more odd.

    A Rating should reflect the Game in it`s current form and not some Fanboy Geekiness or some promises from a Developer/Publisher what the Game might become in a couple of months.

    If I put a Rating for a Game out I should be able to look back at it in a couple of months and still don`t feel that I was too harsh with it or just did rate it worse/better because I didn`t/did like the Developer/Publisher back then.

    Waiting with buying a Game till the first week has passed never was a bad idea since by then most Developer/Publisher have gone from Everything is fine with the Game Marketing Bullshit to We are now acknowledging that something not right here and will update the Game as soon as we can.

    Overall while it might sound harsh I would go as far to say that if you are still working hard to earn your money or if it`s limited since you are only getting a smaller among each week to spent I would generally stay away from buying any Game on Launch Day doesn`t matter if it`s iOS, Android,...

    I know it`s hard when everyone around you is playing a Game already on Launch Day but trust me that I would often wish that I could turn back the time and don`t play a Game on Launch Day and instead save my Money and play it like a Week/Month/Year or whenever a Game has gone from being just a Mess to actual Playable.

    I bought it today and can't complain. It looks beautiful and has been running great for me so far. It's very in depth, but I'm sure after a few more games, I'll have it down. The only gripe I have, I share with others. Why isn't there a tutorial? I've watched the videos, and while they're a nice addition, a hands on tutorial would work better for an old fart like me. Otherwise, I don't regret buying this at all. It'll make a nice distraction while I wait for The Witcher III.

    It misses a tutorial. For knowing the mechanics, I watched the tutorial video on youtube for the boardgame itself. Helped a lot.
    The game itself is not bad, but the app from Lords of Waterdeep is more user-friendly, more clearly and sticks better together.

    There's a tutorial accessed in game but it is essentially that YouTube video. Slightly different though.

    Games like Lords of Waterdeep work great on the phone though. Ended up picking this up for my iPad and I definitely could see it working on the iPhone 6.

    Tried to play two solo games verses other AI controlled characters on iPad2, and both of them bombed out. When I reload the app again, those game's progress is lost and it brings me back to the start new game screen.

    So I'm done trying it until it is patched.

    Have this installed on my ip6+. (I have my ways of doing things). Definitely text is too small. Those character cards or whatever have so much text on them. I can just get by though by using the new zoom function from accessibility settings. That has been a godsend for these such applications. Though very finicky.

    My only problem is that there is no mid game save, this is not good if you don't have a good bit of time to devote to the game.

    Never played the BG, never much into witcher, but ff's reputation precedes it, so purchased without hesitation. Played a few times, and so far, I've found the games focus managing wounds and negative effects makes it difficult to enjoy the "adventure". Not to mention the casino-like odds of any die rolling events that restult in failure far more often than success. Obviously I'm not getting it, and while the implementation is gorgeous, the game itself is just a bummer.
