NOTE: This is not a complete game. Players need a copy of the Golem Arcana board game available at and hobby specialty stores everywhere.


10/10 "To Sum it up, Golem Arcana is a fascinating, incredibly fun Tabletop game with tons of depth...Not only that, but the potential on where this game can go is astounding" --

90/100 "Harebrained Schemes has managed to truly enhance the tabletop war-gaming experience and turn it into something that both newcomers to the genre and grizzled veterans can enjoy." --

"Golem Arcana lives up to the hype, it’s everything you’d hope it would be...The bottom line is this: If you look at these images and think it looks fun, believe me, it is. Give Golem Arcana a try. You won’t regret it." --


Golem Arcana offers a whole new way to play tabletop games by harnessing the power of your smartphone or tablet. As you play, the app serves as a sort of referee and rulebook, freeing up the players to concentrate on devising strategies to crush their enemies and give grief to their friends on the other side of the table. Thus, Golem Arcana combines the tactile fun of a tabletop game with the accessibility of an online game. It’s the best of both worlds, offering up a unique experience that neither could deliver on its own.

The key to the game’s seamless connection between the tabletop and your mobile device is the Bluetooth-powered Tabletop Digital Interface (TDI) Stylus. You can tap any of the game pieces with the stylus to send information to the Golem Arcana app running on your smartphone or tablet. The app adjudicates the game, helps the players understand the rules, manages record keeping, and provides the kind of dynamically evolving gameplay previously found only in Internet games.

Very disappointing

I bought this game a while ago and enjoyed it at the time. It’s been hard to find people to play so when I got some people together today I was quite frustrated that I couldn’t figure out how to set up a match. I tried everything, went back to the instructions, eventually started searching online for help to discover that I wasn’t doing anything wrong. For the last hour while my friends sat and watched me try to start a game, the game is just broken now. The least they could do is alert people to the problem in the apps news crawler If they aren’t going to continue supporting so they don’t waste their time. What they should do is fix the problem or roll it back to a working version before they abandon it so I can at least play it. I will never spend money on their games again.

Come on guys

This company has a few great titles under their belt, and it looks like another one on the horizon, but that all goes out the window with this lack of support. If they cut support on existing products just because a new one is in the queue, why would I purchase their next big thing? I would argue that this needs MORE continued support than a typical title as A) there is no de facto version to revert back to like there is on pc, and B) people put money into physical products for this game. Much more money than $10 for an app (or even $60 for a console game). And with the console game, you can at least play an unpatched version if all you have is the disc. Big fail, guys. Hire a contractor to find the issues/bugs, and keep at least one person dedicated to legacy product support. Or let the community pitch in. Something. Jeeze.

Not working

This app does not work on Apple devices currently. After looking online it seems to have been a problem for a while now the only way to fix it is to apparently not use Apple. Whoever is in charge of app support really needs to fix this. It worked before now it doesn't so stop worrying about other projects.
