Awesome game....but needs improvement about the time managment

This game is amazing!! I have the board game at my moms, and when I'm at my dads I play with my step dad. 😆 But, recently I was taking my turn and all of a sudden it said I had to forfeit due to time....also the first time we played I had to go to bed (school next day) and it also forfeited me again due to time. I wish you will read this and somehow fix it (even though long) you could make an option that gets rid of time with your friends. Other than that this is an amazing game!!! And would we amazing for new people to learn how to play. I should probably stop typing now since this is like really long. Hopefully you can improve that, this is an amazing game that can be even better. Have a nice day, and please take this into consideration. 😊

Combat fantasy strategy board game and cards

Worked best on iPad Air and iPad mini. Works good on iPhone 5 but due to limited screen space on the phones the UI can become very cluttered. If you like card battlers like Magic the gathering mixed with a grid board for strategically moving your units against opposing players this is it. It's theme is fantasy there are various decks such as thieves, mind control mages, ogre decks etc. There are spells and enchantments and add a welcoming layer of challenge. There's PVP online and offline. Solo players will love the PVE but 2 of the in app purchased add on decks do not have AI built for them (benders and thieves). When solo playing the enemies AI may take a minute to respond on his turn. Not game breaking but could become frustrating. Also to unlock all decks it will cost you about $8 is it worth it yes but it's not for everyone give it a shot if you like it unlock it.

Great game but...

I love the digital game as well as the board game. It reminds me of MTG but I like it more.

HOWEVER, the app implementation, while good, could use some crucial tweaks. There needs to be an undo button that will go back one move (as long as it's not redoing an attack or something where you are undoing after knowing the result). For example, occasionally I'll summon a wall or a unit to the wrong space and I can't undo it like I could in the physical board game. Similarly, I once ended the attack phase with an extra attack point still remaining and then realized I had another unit I forgot to attack with using their special ability and it I couldn't go back and do it. Very frustrating when it messes up your strategy on such a strategic game. :-/
