Colt Express Released for iOS, Android, and PC
It's officially the holiday season. How can we tell other than looking at the obnoxious inflatable Santa Claus my neighbor has in his front yard? Games are starting to be released! The first of the lot comes today and it's 2015's SdJ winner, Colt Express!

This version of Colt Express has everything the tabletop version has, including a 3D train. Well, it's not really 3D, but it looks like it! It also has online multiplayer including digital-only variants, and a single-player story mode that covers 30 missions. Before I get much farther, let's get you the blurb you've all been waiting for:

Asmodee Digital wrote:
PUT YOURSELF IN THE BOOTS OF A FAR WEST LEGEND IN SOLO MODE:
Live the adventures of 6 outlaws in Story mode through 30 captivating chapters, each with its own plot, set of rules and achievements.
Complete a bandit's story to unlock new multiplayer modes and comic books about the intricacies of the desperados' life in the Wild West!

FRIENDLY FIRE IN MULTIPLAYER MODE:
Play online with players from all around the world, climb the leaderboard and become the most wanted player feared by every outlaw of the land!

A TREASURE HUNT IN THE FAR WEST!
Collect skins for your heroes and environments for your adventures by completing special objectives!

To sum up, the game features:
• A wild west themed universe inspired from the original board game, digitally modernized
• A tactical and action-packed gameplay, for intense and unpredictable games
• An extensive Story mode following 6 characters, each with his own objectives and quirks. Available offline and saved the next time you log in.

• An online Multiplayer Mode
• A worldwide Leaderboard, updated and available in real-time
• A friendlist, with the possibility to play with your friends

Yee-haw, or some such stuff.

You can pick up Colt Express for iOS Universal, Android, and PC via Steam at the links below:

- Colt Express for iOS Universal, $7
- Colt Express for Android, $7
- Colt Express for PC via Steam, $10





Smash Up! Adds Wizards and Tricksters
Nomad Games Ltd (II) surprised us all earlier this year when they announced they were dipping their toes in tabletop gaming that didn't involve Talisman in any way. Instead, they were bringing AEG's smash hit, Smash Up to our tablets and laptops.

Smash Up has been available for PC via Steam's Early Access program for a while now, but last week while we were chomping down on turkey, Nomad was busy adding the final factions to the game, Wizards and Tricksters.

So, if you want to give Smash Up! a try right now, it's free to download for PC. The free content includes Dinosaurs, Ninjas, and Geeks. If you want to play with Aliens, Zombies, Pirates, Robots, Wizards, or Tricksters, you'll have to pony up for the Starter Pack which is currently $9 on Steam.

While Smash Up! is only available right now for PC, it will be coming soon to both iOS and Android. How soon? Only Nomad has that info, and they're not sharing.

- Smash Up! for PC via Steam Early Access, free





More Sales Come to the App Store
If you missed our list of Thanksgiving sales from last week, you can find it here. Some of those games have undoubtedly gone back to their original price, but you can still find a cheapie here and there. If you really want to find all the deals, make sure you scroll through that post's comments. You guys found a bunch of games on sale that I wasn't able [i.e., didn't try -ed.] to find.

We stumbled on a couple others [i.e., these guys contacted us. We did, literally, no work. -ed.] since and thought we'd post them here.

The first is our old friend Steam: Rails To Riches which is currently on sale for only $2. Not only that, but additional maps are also on sale now for only $2 instead of $3. Get on this one, because I have no idea how long it will last.

Oh, and they're still looking to bring Steam to our laptops via Steam, but need to be greenlit first. Head on over and let's get them greenlit. It costs you nothing and will make me happy to be able to play Steam on my laptop when I should be working. Go here and click "YES".

- Steam: Rails to Riches for iOS Universal, $2
- Steam: Rails to Riches for Android, $2

The other sale we became aware of due to our incredible diligence [not really -ed.] is Tsuro from Calliope Games and Thunderbox Entertainment. It's on sale for Cyber Monday which is apparently a real thing. I know because I read about it on Facebook. Whatever fake holiday it's on sale for, it's still 40% off. Yay!

That means you can pick up Tsuro right now for iOS Universal or Android for only $3 instead of $5 (yay, math!). From the press release that was sent to us without us having to do any work whatsoever, no end date is stated for the sale. It does, however, focus on this Cyber Monday thing so it might only be good for today. I wouldn't dillydally.

- Tsuro: The Game of the Path for iOS Universal, $3
- Tsuro: The Game of the Path for Android, $3

Sales, Sales, Sales!
Today is a national holiday here in the US, Thanksgiving, which brings with it each year a bevy of sales on the App Store. I usually dread writing this post which involves tracking down and pasting about a billion (rough estimate) links. This year's a little different. We still have sales, but publishers weren't climbing through their laptops to give them to us. As such, our number of sales is a bit lower than past years. That's not to say there aren't more out there...these are just the ones we've been informed of. If you know of other apps that are on sale, please share that info in the comments below so we can all hop on the cheap train.

No rhyme or reason, just going to toss them out there. Also, I've tried to include both iOS and Android links where possible. The Android version might not be on sale, but I included the link anyway. Get over it.

Onwards!

App News: The Great War Entering Beta, HABA Makes a Splash on App Store, Tokaido Beta Beginning Friday and more...

HexWar Beginning Closed Beta for The Great War
A couple weeks ago we let you know that GMT Games LLC was going forward with digital versions of both Commands & Colors: Ancients and Commands & Colors: Napoleonics. We already have a digital version of Battlelore: Command on our tablets via Fantasy Flight Games. Now, HexWar is joining in on the C&C fun with a digital version of last year's The Great War.

We've known they were working on it for a bit now, but yesterday they announced that the game is entering closed beta. Not only that, but you can sign up to help test the game out! The beta is for PC and Mac only (although the finished product should end up on our tablets), and you can sign up right here.

The beta begins next Monday and we should be in it. If they'll let us pass along any beta info, we'll get it posted in the next few weeks.



HABA All Over the App Store
Yesterday, Brad shocked me by sending a link to a digital version of one of my 6 year-old's favorite titles, Rhino Hero. The shocking part wasn't that HABA had gone digital, but that they chose to digitize Rhino Hero, a dexterity game with no real way to translate gameplay into a digital medium. What's next, digital Dancing Eggs? Turns out the digital Rhino Hero bears little resemblance to its cardboard counterpart but it makes little difference. Like every other HABA title, my kid loves it.

The digital Rhino Hero is a physics stacking game in which you're trying to simply build as high a tower as you can. Occasionally, a bad guy will show up and do something to make your tower wobble unless you hit a button and call in the titular rhino to save the day. He can only be called in after a certain amount of time, however, so if you get multiple baddies you can be out of luck. He'll come back faster the quicker you drop blocks on the tower, causing a bit of chaos as your tower heads into the stratosphere. My kid's favorite part is the end, after your tower falls, Rhino Hero shows up at the bottom floor and gets in an elevator which takes him to the top, indicating how many floors you were able to build. You can see his anticipation building each time Rhino Hero hits the "up" button.

That's not the only HABA game we stumbled upon. There are also digital versions of Orchard and a digital original, Unicorn Glitterluck. Orchard looks like a straight up port of the board game whereas Unicorn Glitterluck looks to be for the very little ones learning their numbers while playing a running game. On a unicorn. Sounds perfect.

You can pick up the games for both iOS at the links below:

- Rhino Hero for iOS Universal, $3

- The Orchard for iOS Universal, $3

- Unicorn Glitterluck for iOS Universal, $3



Tokaido Enters Open Beta This Friday
We saw a working build of Tokaido from Funforge at Gen Con this year, so it's not too surprising to learn that they're ready for beta. Today they tweeted this:



So, the open beta begins this Friday! You can sign up to join right here.

Once again, if we can share anything from the beta, you'll be the first to know.



Pathfinder Adventures Updated with Deck 5, Sins of the Savior
This news is a bit older--I found out about it right after I posted on Friday--so I put it at the end because you're probably already aware. Normally, anything regarding Pathfinder Adventures would be front and center, as it's currently in the running for my GOTY.

Anyway, last Friday, Obsidian Entertainment released a major update for Pathfinder that not only squashed a bunch of bugs but also released the next deck in the Rise of the Runelords campaign, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Sins of the Saviors Adventure Deck 5. One one deck to go until we can start hoping for Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Skull & Shackles – Base Set!

Here's the complete patch notes in all it's cut and pasted glory. You can find links to both the iOS Universal and Android versions below as well.

- Pathfinder Adventures for iOS Universal, free
- Pathfinder Adventures for Android, free

Obsidian wrote:
Deck 5: Sins of the Saviors

The evil beneath the town of Sandpoint refuses to sleep quietly and a killer from the ancient past awakes. Clues found in his lair lead to the den of a legendary dragon and into a vast arcane dungeon ruled by ancient wizards, where the seven deadly sins reign supreme.
5 New Scenarios
3 New Locations
New Maps
New loot such as the Staff of Hungry Shadows, Summon Monster, and Ordikon’s Staff!
New Legendary Rewards
Complete each scenario on Legendary to unlock the Blessing of Thassilonian Virtues!
For owners of the Rise of the Runelords Bundle - New Promo card!
Goblin Plate +1. Use this armor to mitigate combat or Fire damage by 3. Be wary of reducing all damage with it, however, or you'll deal 1 damage to a character at your location!
News Queue
The main menu now has a panel that will inform users about new challenges, bundles, features, and rewards.
New Wildcards
Several new wildcards have been added, some specifically for Deck 5, but others are available for all decks.
Some new wildcards that can be encountered:
Close Quarters: Your hand size is decreased by 1/2/3.
Alert Guards: An additional monster is shuffled into each location.
(Deck 3+) Mother Father Snakes: A Nightbelly Boa henchman is shuffled into each location
(Deck 5 only) Revenge of the Wrathful: When you encounter a non-villain non-henchman monster, a random character at an open location summons and encounters a Warrior of Wrath henchman.
Blessing Matching Toggle
To deal with issues with certain blessings copying the top blessing of the discard pile we've implemented a toggle that will let you choose to copy the blessing or not. This fixes issues with Favor of the Gods.
To Toggle Blessing Copy:
Tap on the top card of the blessings deck. On the left side there will be a button that says "Blessings". This defaults to on.
Tap on "Blessings" to turn off blessing matching.
Quest Mode Reward Revision
Revised card rewards when leveling up in Quest Mode. Gone are the days of being rewarded a Rusty Short Sword!
Top Community Issues

These are issues you have all helped to bring to our attention. We can't thank you enough for your feedback on the game! These issues have been the most discussed here on the forum and these, along with many more, will be fixed when 1.1.5 goes live!
Natural skill bonuses being removed when playing items that add to the main check
Items like Belt of Giant Strength, Belt of Incredible Dexterity, and Headband of Alluring Charisma, when played, would sometimes remove the natural bonus the character had for their checks. This has been fixed, and the bonuses now add properly.
Crashing when Selecting Dice
Attempted a fix for an issue where some players can crash when selecting dice. We are unable to reproduce this internally - for those affected, please let us know if this issue is resolved.
Playing cards from your deck
There was an issue where you could play relevant cards from your deck when not in your hand. This has been fixed.
Seelah's Crusade & Mountain Peak
Fixed an issue where Seelah's Crusade ability was not usable at the Mountain Peak if the location's start of turn power was failed.

Other Fixes
Here's the list of other fixes we've addressed in this patch, broken down by type!

Cards
Blessing of Abadar: No longer incorrectly grants 2 dice vs barriers on non-defeat checks
Booster: Magic Spyglass: Now correctly adds 1 die instead of incorrectly adding +1 to perception checks.
Booster: Favor of the Gods: Can now properly be played with other blessings on a check. Note that in order to do so, you need to toggle blessing matching - you'll have to zoom on the top card of the blessings deck and tap on "blessing". This will tell Favor of the Gods and other blessings to copy the top card of the blessing's discard - or not. It defaults to on.
Booster: Silent Enforcer: No longer incorrectly counts as a weapon when used at the Waterfront
Clockwork Librarian: Now properly allows you to cancel when played to aid a recharge, and no longer incorrectly allows auto succeeding at spell recharges.
Luckstone: Can no longer be incorrectly used to aid other's checks.
Lokansir: Card text now updated to match the current behavior.
Major Cure: Now properly granting extra card for the caster
Restoration: Can no longer be unintentionally used on an active character when played by an off turn character at a different location.
Restoration: The helper text when used at a location with another character was incorrect. This has been fixed.
Simulacrum of Vraxeris: If you fail the BYA check, the henchman will incorrectly recharge any displayed cards. The bonuses and dice will remain in effect properly for the rest of the turn, however.
Xanesha: Her card restriction now properly continues through the turn duration instead of incorrectly only during the encounter.
Character
Ezren: Spell Collector text updated to better communicate what the power does.
Lini: Beast Form - Fire trait is now optional and can be toggled via UI that pops up above the first power slot. This required moving the position of her powers to make visual sense, however the position of buttons for existing characters could not be changed.
New versions of Lini made in 1.1.5 and later will have Animal Trick on the right, with Beast Form on the left.
Existing versions of Lini made before 1.1.5 will retain the original Animal Trick on the left and Beast Form on the right. The UI for Fire trait will appear above Animal Trick on this version of the character.
Kyra: Dawnflower's Favorite: Fixed an issue where Dawnflower's Favorite was not properly functioning.
Sajan: Bring Me Another - Fixed an issue where Lem aiding the recharge check with Bardic Performance could banish the card being recharged.
Sajan: Bring Me Another - Fixed an issue where you couldn't recharge a Potion of Fortitude if used on a recharge check for another item with the liquid trait.
Quest Mode
Nightbelly Boa as henchmen: A final possible place where Nightbelly Boas could be used as Henchmen in Quest Mode has been removed
Scenario
The Black Tower: Mountain Peak is no longer orphaned when playing with 2 characters on Legendary.
UI
Character Selection: Replaced the character sub-menu button with a new animated icon
Booster Card Rarity: Border colors indicating card rarity no longer disappear between scenarios.
Move Button: When starting your turn at a closed location, an animation now plays on the Move button to make it more obvious what you need to do next.

Text Modified from the Physical Game
We sometimes change cards from the ones found in the Physical version of the game - generally due to technical reasons, although sometimes per request from Paizo or Loneshark. Here's the list of cards modified in this patch!
Alu-Demon Sister: Card modified from a "Before you act", perform a die roll, to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait" perform a die roll.
Shimmering Veils of Pride: Location modified to state: "When you succeed at a check on your turn, recharge a card." The original text was for any succeeded check at that location would cause a recharge to occur.
Succubus: Card modified from a "Before you act", perform a die roll, to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait" perform a die roll.
Mistress Delvahine: Card modified from a "Before you act", perform a die roll, to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait" perform a die roll.
Rimeskull: Scenario power modified from "Characters may not move to or explore" to "may not move to or encounter cards"
Modified in previous patches:
Acid Arrow: Card modified from Arcane die + 2d4 to Arcane die + 1d10+1.
Bandit: Veteran trait added.
Black Magga: Card modified from a "Before you act," perform a die roll, to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait" perform a die roll.
Emerald Codex: Banish power of the card removed. The only power on this card is the Bury version. Current power: "Bury this card to display three new spells that have the Divine trait. You may play each of these cards as if it is in your hand; after you do, banish it. At the end of the scenario, banish any that remain."
Goblin Warchanter: Card modified from a "Before you act," perform a die roll, to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait or a weapon" perform a die roll.
Hag: Card modified from a "Before you act" perform a die roll to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait" perform a die roll.
Hook Mountain Hag: Card modified from a "Before you act" perform a die roll to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait" perform a die roll.
Holy Candle: Power changed to a Banish from Bury for added blessings to the blessings deck.
Levitate: Removed from the game and replaced with Stride. Stride's power: "During your turn, discard this card to move another character. At the end of your turn, discard this card to move. After playing this card, if you do not have the Arcane skill, banish it; otherwise, you may succeed at an Arcane 8 check to recharge this card instead of discarding it."
Lokansir: Card modified from a "Before you act" perform a die roll to "Before you play a spell that has the Attack trait" perform a die roll.
Snake: Discard power updated to add to Strength combat checks. Original only allowed Melee.
Reduction Field: Reworded If Undefeated power to "If undefeated, attach this card to its location deck. While attached, the difficulty of Strength and Melee checks at this location is increased by 4.". The original stated to "display this card faceup next to its location deck."

Vlaada Chvátil Talks About Through the Ages and Codenames
The dashing editor of the new strategy game super-site, Stately Play (disclosure: it's me), today posted an interview from earlier in the week with a designer you might have heard of: Vlaada Chvátil. In it they talk about the much-awaited port of Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization and Codenames and when we should be seeing them land on our devices. You should head over and read the whole thing because the interviewer is, obviously, a genius, but I'll give you a breakdown of the big news here.

Through the Ages:
- Currently in internal testing of multiplayer but, otherwise, the game plays well.
- Once multiplayer is ironed out, limited external beta test to really push the boundaries of the multiplayer system.
- Will release after beta test, probably very early 2017.

Codenames:
- Pretty much in same state as Through the Ages: working on multiplayer.
- Multiplayer has difficulties other games don't such as not being able to replace quitting players with bots.
- Working on single-player experience, or something resembling one. Working good, but needs a few tweaks.
- Also expected early 2017.

There are a few more details in the interview, so head over and check it out.



Treasure Hunter Finds Itself on the App Store
Apparently, Treasure Hunter from Queen Games arrived on shelves in 2015. I hadn't heard of it at all, which seems strange considering that Queen isn't some small indie-publisher, and that its designer is none other than Richard Garfield, the designer of King of Tokyo and some other game whose name escapes me. I became aware of Treasure Hunter only because it stealthily released last night on the App Store.

Not knowing much about the game, this seems like a good time for a blurb:

Queen Games wrote:
Description
The new drafting card game by R.Garfield.

Treasure Hunter is amazingly easy to learn and yet it is an addictive game.

Choose one of the 8 avatars and start playing right away.
The tutorial allows you an easy access if you do not know the game.

Compete against up to 7 different AIs with different skill levels.
If you beat them effortlessly try seeking another challenge in the online mode:
Invite your friends to play against you or use the Auto-Matching feature for a quick game in between.

Gain up to 13 Achievements!

Right now, the following extensions are available for even more fun: Goblin's Loot and Band of Goblins


- Treasure Hunter for iOS Universal, $5
- Treasure Hunter for Android, $5



Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game Coming to Digital
I read the first novel in the Dresden Files and absolutely loved it and then didn't read another one. Why? Because I'm stupid and easily distracted. The rest of the books--hey wait, a squirrel!

Anyway, it turns out there's a cooperative card game based on the world of Harry Dresden, The Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game and, unknown to me, there's a digital version in the works.

Earlier today, Hidden Achievement tweeted this:



Not a lot to go on, but it's something. We'll dig into it and see if we can come away with any more info.

Earlier this week Asmodee announced that December would see the release of the popular cooperative game, Mysterium. Today, Asmodee confirmed that they're rather busy as another digital board game port was announced for December, Potion Explosion.

I don't know much about Potion Explosion, even though I saw it being constantly played at Gen Con. I do know that it involves marbles, which must not be too big a factor if it's being ported to mobile which, last time I checked, was marble-free.



Blurb time:

Asmodee Digital wrote:
To each their own potion!

Ready for the final exam? Witches and Wizards, gather your ingredients and get ready to concoct complex and valuable potions to impress Professor Albedus Humblescore! Unicorn tears, dragon smoke, ogre mucus and fairy dandruff! Gather your resources in the dispenser, and compete with ingenuity to collect ingredient marbles of the same color to trigger explosions! The more identical marbles collide, the more ingredients are collected through chain reactions to cook up your magic beverages. Combine the correct ingredients to create stunning potions such as the Elixir of Blind Love, the Potion of Prismatic Joy or the Sands of Time. You can also drink potions and benefit from their magical effects to collect more ingredients to be placed in the player’s dispenser or directly into a rival’s inventory.

Top honors or walking disaster?

In Potion Explosion, students of the Horribilorum Sorcery Academy must prove themselves by designing as many potions as possible. Players must use their talent to win skill tokens by mastering a particular potion several times or by proving their skills at preparing a variety of potions. Garner the most skill tokens to win the game and become a Potion Master! You have stage fright? Choose to take the exam alone in solo mode or confront students from around the world in multiplayer mode and etch your name on the leaderboard. Follow the tutorial to learn the secrets of potions and revise your exam before you begin your careful blend of mixtures. Don’t panic, once in the class room, players can ask for a little help from Professor Humblescore to obtain the right ingredients. Become a professional potion-making wizard in this adaptation boasting graphics and animations straight out of a magical fantasy world!


Potion Explosion will release in early December for both iOS and Android and will retail for $7.



Steam: Rails To Riches Looking to Get Greenlit on Steam
One of the better board game ports from 2015 was Acram Digital's port of Martin Wallace's Steam: Rails To Riches. Today we learned that they're trying to expand by porting the digital version to PC/Mac/Linux via Steam. For that to happen, of course, they need to be Greenlit.

Head over here and click the "Yes" button. If Steam: R to R gets enough votes, it will eventually be available on Steam. This is a good thing even if you're not a Steam: Rails to Riches fan, as more digital board games are a good thing. Plus, it won't cost you anything.

So, once again, head over this way and vote to Greenlight Steam.

- Steam: Rails to Riches for iOS Universal, $5
- Steam: Rails to Riches for Android, $5





SteamWorld Heist Now Available on iOS
With my head usually stuck in the mobile game space, it's easy to miss popular titles for other platforms. One such title is SteamWorld Heist, which arrived for PC/Mac a while ago and has raked in the fantastic reviews. I learned about SteamWorld Heist yesterday when it suddenly popped up on the App Store.

SteamWorld Heist is a 2D tactical shooter that's turn-based. Think of XCOM: Enemy Unknown that looks like a platformer. Here's the blurb:

In SteamWorld Heist you command a steam-driven pirate crew in a series of epic tactical shootouts. It's turn-based strategy with an action twist: You manually aim the guns of your robots, allowing for insane skill shots and bullet-bouncing action!

As the captain you will board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships. Overcome the challenges of the vast frontier by upgrading your recruits with unique abilities, weapons - and even stylish hats!

Available languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian.

Key features:

- Strategy focused on skill rather than chance
- Procedurally generated levels
- 15-20 hours of playtime, followed by New Game+
- Kind to newcomers, deep and challenging for veterans
- Soundtrack by Steam Powered Giraffe

Recommended devices: iPhone 5, iPad 2 or any newer iPhone or iPad with iOS 8 or higher.


Of course, the game is also available for PC/Mac on Steam. Links below:

- SteamWorld Heist for iOS Universal, $7
- SteamWorld Heist for PC/Mac via Steam, $20





Rome: Total War Released for iPad
This one kind of boggles my mind, only because I have no idea how you're going to control real-time strategy battles this massive on a touchscreen. Rome: Total War is one of the best reviewed PC games of all time and, today, it makes its way to the iPad. It's everything you'd expect in a Total War game: huge battles intermixed with a strategic game of world domination.

Released by Feral Interactive, the iPad version of Rome: Total War has everything the PC version has:

Feral wrote:
ROME: Total War is a strategy game of epic scale, offering players a seamless integration of strategy and tactics to fight spectacular battles, while using diplomacy, subterfuge and assassination to smooth the path to ultimate victory.

ROME: Total War for iPad comes without compromise. Turn your tablet’s screen into an exhilarating 3D battlefield alive with thousands of units, from tight formations of swordsmen to sweeping lines of chariots.


All of this comes with a price: the download is nearly 4GB (no idea what its footprint is once on your tablet) and it requires an iPad Air or later. If you're a huge Total War fan, now might be the time to ditch that iPad 2.

- Rome: Total War for iPad, $10
- Rome: Total War for PC via Steam, $10

Mysterium Coming to Digital in December
Back at Gen Con we had word that Asmodee was publishing a digital version of seance-simulator, Mysterium. At the time we wondered just how such a social title would work in a digital medium and today we learned that it will probably work very, very well.



Earlier today we received a press release letting us know that digital Mysterium would be arriving in December. Along with the release window, they also gave us some details and I have to say that I'm very much looking forward to getting this on my iPad. Let me blurb it for you:

Asmodee Digital wrote:
Ghost or psychic, make your choice!

Join the team of the brilliant clairvoyant Mr. MacDowell as a psychic for an exceptional séance! Lend a hand to the ghost haunting the walls of the Warwick Manor in his search for memories of his suspicious death. Read into the ghost’s visions to gather information on numerous leads in this atmospheric, cunning and immersive game. In Mysterium, gamers can also play as the ghost, whose communication with other psychics is limited to visions and dreams represented by beautifully illustrated cards.

An adventure to experience alone or with other players

Mysterium allows players from all over the world to investigate together in multiplayer mode and cooperate through an in-game chat that enables fellow players to point out visual clues on a card. Players can also share their visions with other psychics and approve or reject their choices with Clairvoyance Tokens. In Mysterium, up to 7 players can join together for fun, engaging games. And for those who wish to enter the manor alone, the Story Mode offers players the possibility to discover who killed the ghost, in which room and with what weapon through a several hours long investigation full of twists and turns.

Exclusive features and new adventures to come

Players well-versed in Mysterium’s secrets can rest assured that Asmodee Digital and Libellud have included exclusive features for the digital version of Mysterium! At launch, players will be able to discover the story of the first original psychic; the stories of the 5 other psychics will be released later as free updates. Still want more? With Hidden Signs, the experience will be enhanced with new mysteries and elements to discover. Available as an in-app purchase at the release of the game in December, this official expansion of Mysterium offers the player new enigmas to solve alone or with friends.


Mysterium is coming in December and will retail for $7 on iOS and Android and $10 on Steam.



Latest Humble Bundle Features Board Games
Not having an Android device, I'm a bit behind on the Humble Bundle scene. Basically, they bundle up a bunch of different games and you get them based on how much you spend. The cool thing is that the money you spend goes to charity, so everyone wins.

This time around, they've put up a bundle that should be of interest to readers of this blog: board games! That's right, for as little as $1 you can pick up Carcassonne and Scotland Yard. Add $5 more and you get Ticket to Ride, San Juan, and Galaxy Trucker. For $3 more you get Splendor, Catan, and The aMAZEing Labyrinth. That's right, for under $10 you can get $8 board games on your Android device.

Interested? Head here and check it out.

Cooperative Board Game, Space Food Truck, Lands on Tablets
Developer One Man Left Studios is known for the tactical multiplayer title Outwitters which is still getting play even though it landed on the App Store back in 2012. If you're not familiar with that one, how about the Tilt to Live series of games? It doesn't matter because this week they released their latest title, Space Food Truck, on both iPad and Android tablets.

Space Food Truck is an original digital board game that's cooperative for 1-4 players. Each player controls one of the roles on the titular vehicle as you roam the procedurally generated universe in search of exotic ingredients and deliver completed dishes to the planets that crave them. It's a deckbuilder, mainly, and...oh, here's the blurb:

One Man Left wrote:
Space Food Truck is a cooperative, culinary sci-fi adventure. 1-4 players take on unique roles aboard the Galaxy Gourmet, and they'll all need to work in concert to succeed! Just like on a real space food truck.

• The Captain charts your course.
• The Chef crafts delicious recipes.
• The Scientist researches powerful abilities.
• The Engineer repairs and upgrades the ship.

Each character begins the game with a small deck of 10 cards, which you'll play to move around the ship and do your job. You must add a card to your personal deck each turn, and you'll be reshuffling and drawing items and abilities from it all game long.

Your mission: complete three recipe objectives before a cruel fate claims your ship! You'll scour a procedurally generated galaxy in search of exotic ingredients, craft them into delicious dishes, and take them to the planets that crave them.

Features
• Supports 1-4 players.
• Pass the device locally, or take turns online with asynchronous play.
• Cross platform support: play with anyone on any supported device!
• 4 Difficulties: Mild, Medium, Thai Hot, and Dragon Sweat
• Our procedural galaxy holds new surprises every play through!
• Games last 1-2 hours, save and stop anytime.
• 27 Achievements to tackle


Space Food Truck has been out on Steam for PC/Mac for quite a while and it's garnered some rather sparkling reviews. You can pick it up at the links below:

- Space Food Truck for iPad, $10
- Space Food Truck for Android, $10
- Space Food Truck for PC/Mac on Steam, $20





Talisman: The Horus Heresy Goes Free All Weekend
We all know that Nomad Games' version of Talisman: Digital Edition is one of the best board game ports on the App Store. Fewer of us are aware of how good their latest, Talisman: The Horus Heresy, is. If you're in that camp and want to give it a try before you buy, now's your chance. This weekend, Talisman: The Horus Heresy is completely free to play for PC/Mac on Steam. If you decide you like the game, it's also on sale for 50% off all weekend as well.

All of this is to celebrate the release of the game's latest expansion, Prospero. Regardless of the reason, we get the benefit. Log onto Steam this weekend and give it a try. If you're a Talisman (Revised 4th Edition) or Warhammer 40,000 fan, you'll probably find a lot to like.

- Talisman: The Horus Heresy for iOS Universal, $7
- Talisman: The Horus Heresy for Android, $5.50
- Talisman: The Horus Heresy for PC/Mac on Steam, free





Reiner Knizia's The Confrontation Expands With Variants
Yes, we know it doesn't have the Lord of the Rings license. No, that doesn't mean it's not worth a look. Lord of the Rings: The Confrontation is a great 2-player game and Offworld Games has done yeoman's work in changing the theme to match and preserve the gameplay.

Today the game was updated to include Variant Mode which basically turns Reiner Knizia's The Confrontation into the deluxe edition of The Confrontation. It includes 18 new characters and 4 new special action cards as well.

The Variant Mode is available via IAP in both the iPad and PC/Mac version.

- Reiner Knizia's The Confrontation for iPad, $6
- Reiner Knizia's The Confrontation for PC/Mac on Steam, $18.38

Lanterns: The Harvest Festival Released for iOS/Android
I don't know much about Lanterns: The Harvest Festival from Renegade Game Studios even though I spotted the digital version in the wild at Gen Con. What I do know about it from my glimpses is that it is incredibly beautiful and zen-like, and that I want it. Luckily, I don't have to wait as it's now available for both iOS and Android.

The game features both solo play versus an AI as well as online matchmaking, however I'm not certain if that's synchronous or asynchronous play. That's enough from me, to the blurb:

Dire Wolf Digital wrote:
Players take turns arranging colorful floating lanterns on a ceremonial lake. Completing sets of lanterns earns Honor, and at the end of the game the player with the most Honor wins.

Vibrant visual effects, skilled AI, meditative environmental music and smooth touch play translate the delightful zen of Lanterns: The Harvest Festival to your phone or tablet.

Lanterns: The Harvest Festival offers all of the fun and depth of the tabletop game, PLUS:

• Online matchmaking against old friends and new
• Strategic solo play to hone your skills against AI players
• Progressive Challenge system to guide you through gameplay
• Intuitive tap-and-drag tile placement for fast and easy play


The game is available for both iOS Universal and Android and runs $5 on both platforms. You can nab it at the links below:

- Lanterns: The Harvest Festival for iOS Universal, $5
- Lanterns: The Harvest Festival for Android, $5



1775: Rebellion Coming to iPad/Android Tablets Tonight
It's been available on Steam for a bit now, but tonight will mark the release of 1775: Rebellion for both iPad and Android tablets.

Our friends at HexWar are behind the port of the Academy Games title, and if you haven't played the cardboard version you're in for a treat. While 1775 looks and feels like a war game, it also has the feel of an area control euro and, best part, is playable in teams. The best way to play is 2 vs. 2, although having sides played by solo players works well, too.

The cardboard version is one of my favorites, so I'm hyped to get to play this on my tablet. The game will feature both AI and cross-platform online multiplayer, with the ability to mix them together if you wish. That is, have AI handle one or more factions while you and a pal handle the others.

No word on what the cost will be, but the PC/Mac version on Steam currently goes for $25. Look for the iPad/Android version to go live at midnight GMT.

- 1775: Rebellion for PC/Mac on Steam, $25





Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy Goes Free
I'm not sure how long this will last, so I'll keep it short. Big Daddy's Creations' rather wonderful port of Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy has just gone free. That's right, gratis. Well, if you're on iOS that is. The Android and Steam versions are still going to cost you.

I don't want you to wait too long to head over there, so I'll stop talking about it now. Follow the links below! GO!

- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for iPad, free
- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for Android, $5
- Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy for PC/Mac on Steam, $15



Carrier Battles for Guadalcanal updating to version 1.5
One of our favorite (and most complex) war games on the App Store is Carrier Battles for Guadalcanal. It's deep, heavy, and historically accurate, all the things you'd want in a beefy war game. It's also constantly being updated by its creator, Cyril Jarnot.

The latest update brings it to version 1.5 and it's a doozy with a new scenario and more. I'll let the blurb take it away:

Cyril Jarnot wrote:
What's New in Version 1.5
Scenarios:
- New scenario: The End of Rabaul (in-app purchase)
- Midway: if Yorktown is out of play, then her planes are allocated to Midway instead
- Eastern Solomons: TF18 starts even further south

Changes for TRS:
- the cargo unload rules have been reworked
- it takes longer to unload in an enemy-controlled hex
- transport destroyers (APD)\n\nAI:\n- Japanese airfield being heavily pounded may rebase its aircraft\n- new defensive tactics over airfields\n- better size of Japanese airstrikes
- The Japanese air strikes have more chances to target US transports

AirStrike:
- if the target vanishes during preparation, then the strike is cancelled and already airborne planes will land
- minor discrepancies between predictions before launch and on-map airstrike
- during air-to-sea battles, attacked ships are displayed on the left so that all attacks are visible

Miscellaneous:
- AA is limited to 100
- each air to sea or air to ground factor has always a minimum of 5% to hit its target
- slightly slower Japanese carrier cycle of operation
- there is more chance to destroy Japanese carrier decks with bombs
- the Japanese were not retreating enough when facing severe losses
- AA guns are more exposed to bomb or shell damage on a DD\n-US forces are no longer compelled to retire after naval bombardment
- avoid duplicated air losses in the events screen


War gamers should already own this one, but if you don't it's available at the link below.

GMT Announces C&C: Ancients and C&C: Napoleonics Coming Next Year
This one's been in the rumor mill for a long time, going all the way back to when Playdek was rumored to be in the Commands & Colors: Ancients hunt. In their October update, GMT Games LLC confirmed that work is being done on both C&C: Ancients and Commands & Colors: Napoleonics. Or, at least a contract has been signed. Here's the entire blurb:

GMT Games wrote:
Commands & Colors. We aren't quite ready to release details yet, but look for an announcement over the coming weeks about upcoming digital versions of Commands & Colors Ancients and Commands & Colors Napoleonics! We've found an experienced digital team to license and code those games and contracts are in place. They'll be in charge of release timing, but it's our hope that they'll have the first product to your digital devices during the summer of 2017. More in the upcoming Press Release....


Not a lot of info, but at least we know they're in the works and summer of 2017 isn't that far away.

As usual, we'll let you know when we learn more.

More Board Game Stickers for iMessage
Last week we highlighted a pack of stickers that you can attach to messages if you're on an iDevice and have upgraded to iOS 10. Little did we realize that there are other board gaming stickers out there on the App Store as well.

This pack is from reader Kenneth Spond and has more than just meeples. We have cubes, roads, discs, and more (with the "more" being mainly meeples).

It's called Euro Board Game Bits, and it available for download now for $1. You can nab it at the link below:

Pathfinder Adventures Gets Update

Obsidian wrote:
Kyra - Purge Undead progression break
-Fixed a progression break that would occur when using Kyra's Purge Undead power.
Approach to Thistletop Goblin + Garrison progression break
-Fixed a progression break that would occur when encountering Goblins in Approach to Thistletop at the Garrison.

Baseball Highlights 2045 Updated
Just to show how great 2016 has been for digital board games, both the aforementioned Pathfinder Adventures and Baseball Highlights 2045 arrived just this year (I haven't even mentioned Twilight Struggle or a slew of other great ports).

Baseball Highlights has seen major updates since its release, and this weekend saw another one land. Too much stuff to summarize, so here's the cut/paste job:

Peter Kossits wrote:
What's New in Version 1.9.3
Bug Fix: Saved game is erased when game ends.
Bug Fix: When skipping 3 game season, if player passed during pre-game buy rounds a new hand was dealt after the AI/other player purchased instead of keeping same hand.
Bug Fix: Game saved right after game ended but before On Deck cards were discarded would be slightly corrupted on Resume.
Bug Fix: Added pause after last AI free agent purchase
Feature: AI Enhancements
Feature: Introduced Expansion pack #2
Feature: Tracking new game stats


You can get Baseball Highlights 2045 for both iOS Universal and Android at the links below:

- Baseball Highlights 2045 for iOS Universal, $6
- Baseball Highlights 2045 for Android, $6



Mansions of Madness 2.0 App Updates
Nothing major with this update, unless you speak Polish or Italian, that is. New localizations added for those two languages just in time for Halloween.

Speaking of Halloween, I spent some of my spooky downtime this Halloween weekend to finally play Mansions of Madness: Second Edition and will have my thoughts about the experience later this week. I bet you can hardly wait. Well, at least act like you can hardly wait. Thanks.

You can pick up the app for MoM 2.0 at the links below:

Terra Mystica Coming to Mobile
The folks at DIGIDICED are at it again, only this time it's not a 2-player Uwe Rosenberg title. No, this time it's only one of the greatest board games ever developed, Terra Mystica.



That is literally all the information we currently have about the title, but we'll be sure to bug them until we get more info. As usual, we'll pass it along.



Meeple Stickers, Meepmoticons, Now Available for iMessage
If you've updated to iOS 10 on your iDevice, you may have noticed a bunch of new functionality in iMessage. For some reason you can now draw pictures or send a heartbeat to someone. You can also make fireworks appear, or something. I don't really understand it because I'm old and dislike change.

Apparently another trick you can pull off is to put "stickers" in your conversations. Top hatted reader, Christopher Taylor-Davies, has bundled a bunch of such stickers (drawn by Frank Wimmer) onto the App Store and these are board game related. Prepare thyselves for Meeple stickers. Or emoticons? Either way, they're meeples you can send to others via iMessage.

The package of Meepmoticons will run you a buck, and you can nab them at the link below:
