Ratings and Reviews
Just played first game of solo Marvel Legendary.
Have custom playmat as table background which makes things really simple.
Have also got lotr lcg scanned in and have played several games.
This app is pretty amazing if a little clunky to get used to.
Having said that, once you've worked it out it's pretty straightforward
Great app, but limited card pool size
I love this app for being able to play the Lord of the Rings LCG game that I own. The biggest downside to this app is the fact that each game box is only limited to 1000 cards. I know that sounds silly, but when you see how enormous the card pool is for LOTR, this size starts to look pretty small in comparison. If the size limit could be increased to say 5 or 10 thousand this would greatly help make this app a 5star rating in my book 🙂
I love playing board games on the iPad, but many of my favorite board/card games aren't available. This opens up a lot of opportunity. It is not a high frills tool, but with a small investment in time you can use it to carry your games with you and even more fun, play online.
The tool doesn't mange the rules,etc. but it allows you to play as if you are the table with someone. With the online features my brother and I can play some games across the country!
Mike, keep up the good work, there is room for improvement, but you have a great start, and the basics are covered well. If you are considering buying it, keep in mind, it takes a little work to gets started, but once you have played a few games, you will find it was well worth it!
