I have played the board top version of this game since high school. I still have the game from the 1980's and I also have the most recent version (played a game with friends just this past weekend). I have had copies of the electronic version on my iPhone and on my Kindle for the past few years. The electronic version is amazing. It runs flawlessly. I don't think the iPhone version has ever crashed and the Kindle version has done well too. The game mechanics are handled beautifully. Fortunately I haven't experienced any of the negative issues I've read about in some of the other reviews and I see that overall the app is getting great reviews - I offer assurance that this is well deserved!

Really Great


I’ve never heard nor played this before in any of its incarnations. It’s too bad I never had because this game is intensely fun and very much scratches my adventurer nerves! The game is presented beautifully on my iPhone and plays flawlessly. The artwork is gorgeous and the musical score is great and improves on the adventure immersion.

I’ve only played a few full rounds against AI with varying number of players, but I’ve just gone ahead and purchased all of the in-app items because I’ll be playing this game for quite a very long time! There are so many scenarios with all of the various cards, I’d have paid double on this. Great work!!

Garbage. Just like the tabletop.


I've tried to like this game. Frankly it's as unbalanced as the tabletop version and there is no true random number generation. Like the new XCOM games, once you've moved to a spot the outcomes are pre-determined in combats. I've quit/reloaded the game on a bad roll and re attempted to get the exact same number on the same roll over a dozen times, statistically impossible that I'd not roll anything but the initial roll that many times. The "RNG" in this is garbage, characters aren't balanced even within the expansions. I'm just done. Deleted never to return.

Developer Response

The next few dice rolls are determined randomly and kept to prevent players from quitting and reloading to get different results, thus preventing cheating. Especially important in online games. The numbers are absolutely determined randomly though, but I'm sorry you don't like our RNG method.
