Great! For feedback...
I’m enjoying this companion app very much! Might I make some suggestions as someone who also played the living card game and thought the same for that game: it would be great to have an update that overhauled some of the visuals and audio in the app. Perhaps when an enemy appears, besides just the description have some cool art (even if still art) and some neat audio effects. Maybe when searching a cairn or bush have a nice image/art pop up too. When attacking after entering values perhaps have a nice quick animation of a hero or enemy swinging a weapon....basically some nice visuals/audio to go along with each descriptive element.
Finally, I think it would be good when the players decide who’s turn is next, to have a portrait button on the app to press so the app knows who is going next. This way it can know if someone can’t attack ranged because gimli is selected, etc. or to know when someone has exhausted their 2 actions for that round, etc.
All in all very good but I think can be improved greatly with some really nice artwork and audio as descriptions pop up.
Great app, needs more campaigns
I love this game, and the app is amazing. It really is genius and makes this game unlike anything I’ve played before. Here are a few things I’d like to see:
-More campaign options. This was actually a huge disappointment. The game is expensive, so to play 13 adventures and then be finished with the campaign, with no other campaigns available, is kind of a bummer. Yes we will go replay Bones of Arnor with new characters again and it will be different and fun, but still, there should be more options for a game that’s nearly $100. I know another will be coming out to purchase, but it seems like it should have started with 3-4 available.
- I love the narrator at the beginning and end of the campaign. I would love it if there was an option to have the narrator read the flavor in each adventure
- There is no way that I can find to “undo” or go back to reread something that just happened. There were a few times we skipped over something too quickly, or hit a wrong button, then couldn’t go back.
- An option to keep the screen awake would be nice.
-The “chronicle” button on our app doesn’t work in some adventures, but does in other. It just sort of crashes and closes the app when we try to go to it.
Again, the app is amazing and as far as I know, really unique. Since it’s so new I hope a couple of these things get taken care of!
The road goes ever on and on...
Going to try to keep this short and try to add useful suggestions as I play the game.
Sooo... the game is awesome. FFG has come up with an amazing game, very impressive. The app helps to reinforce the Middle-earth theme with great graphics and immersive but unobtrusive audio track (including both music and ambient sounds of nature).
Normal when I open a new FFG game I expect it to be very rules-heavy and complex. Not the case here! With just a little bit of patience I was able to get my 10 y.o. Playing this very easily.
Suggestions- On the player cards each Stat Icon has a specific shape and a unique color. The app, when instructing you to make a skill test, only displays the Stat’s *shape* displayed in white. It would make it much easier to quickly identify which stat to use if the app displayed it in the corresponding color. Easy fix that could really make things less confusing for new players.
Thanks for a great game!
