• Use the Dreamscape to access the powerful new Vision Cards, as well as Heroes and Constructs!

Feature request - Higher point cap please

This has been a favorite game of mine for years, though as the decks become more advanced, you need a bit more time to build your deck. it always feels like just as i'm about to have my deck set up, the points run out. Can you please set the maximum selectable points (for offline play at least) to allow a higher cap? It could be double than what it is now. I wouldn't mind paying a buck or two for it as DLC, if you want.

Thanks for a continuously enjoyable deck building game! five stars for all your efforts

I support you on steam, also. I've bought the ascension version there, and the VR version too!

Best Board Game App out there!

I think the AI component is what really makes this app shine. It uses so little battery, and while the occasional bug or lag comes up, the developers have been very good about doing their best to release fixes in a timely fashion. It's just a fun, casual game, and a great way to spend 15 minutes on a quick, easy activity!

List of encountered bugs

Dreamscape Expansion:
1. Playing the same "vision" dream card twice in the same turn, by paying the cost for it, drawing it from the dream deck again and paying the cost again, results in a graphical bug on both the action area and the dreamscape.

2. Defeating "Nilus, The Despair" with less than three cards remaining in the Dream Deck will freeze the game.

Please add an option in the menu to enable/disable the counter that appears when you have multiple resources to pay for the same cost. I feel it slows down the game more than it adds value.

Ik u guys are prob just working on adding night/day to the app, but thanks for all the support so far.
