    Exploring question in 'Learn to Play' book

    I think you are confusing "adventuring" and "exploring". Adventuring is when you are on a space containing a gem that is color side up and you draw a card from the deck with the matching symbol. To do that requires two actions, and you then do whatever the card tells you. Exploring is when you go to a specific location listed on an adventure card, and roll dice in hopes of matching the symbols on the card. That generally costs only one action. If you look at the top of the card used in the example, it has a "1" next to an arrow. That means it costs one action to explore the Greenwood. So if a player is doing an exploration, doesn't like the results from the dice roll, and has at least one action after the first exploration, they can try exploring again in the same turn.

    Road to Legend Bug Report

    I don't have the Trials of Frostgate, but I did lose access to The Delve. I am also running Android. The latest update seems to have affected both, as I no longer have the option to buy either Trials of Frostbite or the Delve. This has happened before when a major update has been added to Road to Legend. I am sure they will soon release a patch that fixes this problem.

    Difference Between Cities you Visit?

    Thanks! We keep forgetting about the city action, and focus on completing as many side quests as possible.

    Difference Between Cities you Visit?

    My group is currently playing through the Nerekhall: Seeds of Corruption campaign, and when traveling, you have the option to go to either Nerekhall or Grayhaven. Over the course of the campaign we have gone to either city. Is there really any difference which city you travel to? They both restore morale, and have items for sale, but I can't see why you would go to one city or the other. It seems the new campaign is adding Riverwatch as another possible city the heroes can visit.
  5. I don't see any reason why you couldn't use the boards, but I am not sure why you would want to if you are playing a competitive scenario with someone else. Assuming the person you are playing with knows what he/she is doing, it is always more interesting playing against another person than the boards could ever replicate. That isn't any sort of dig against the boards, which are great, just not as good as playing against a person. As for which board you use, it is the same as which combat tokens you use, which is based on the primary trait of the monster: warrior, trickster, mystic, or savage. You can tell which is which by looking just below the picture of the monster, it will tell you the type you are going against.

    Asset and Skill Decks in the gilded blade expansion

    If you look at each asset card it has both a letter and number printed on it. (As does the combat token that comes with certain equipment. Using the letter and number on the card and corresponding combat token makes the combat token easy to track down.) Asset cards are organized based on what letter group they are in. The core set asset cards are "A", "B". and "C". Regardless of the number of groups you have, you can only use three of those groups. For example, if you own asset card groups beginning with "A", "B", "C", "D", and "E", you can build an asset deck consisting groups of "A", "D", and "E". Each deck is a little different and has its own advantages and disadvantages. I don't know which groups, if any, are better than the other. With respect to the skill decks, they are organized by symbol. If you look at, I believe, the bottom righthand side of a skill card, you will see a symbol. Each group of cards has a specific symbol, and is tied to a specific attribute, e.g., agility. With the expansions you get additional groups of skill cards, and you can use any combination so long as it is limited to six groups, and there are two groups for each attribute. Hope that helps, and have fun! Runebound is a wonderful game.

    APP for Amazon appstore?!

    The rules for the app state it can be downloaded from Amazon, and I am pretty sure the article announcing the app also said it would be available through amazon. Considering both the Road to Legend and the Mansions of Madness apps are available through Amazon I would be surprised if this app isn't released on amazon eventually. It is a shame that the article announcing the app for the other platforms didn't say "coming soon for amazon" or something like that, but I don't think there is any reason to assume it isn't coming. With respect to google play and kindle, you cannot use google play to download anything on a kindle. Certainly annoying, but the kindle has its own advantages. Price obviously being one of them, and there are a lot of great apps that normally have in-app purchasing that you can play for free through Amazon Underground.

    Bounty Hunter / Corbin

    I think the only possible way any confusion about whether he could attack himself could exist is if you read only the first sentence and ignore the other two sentences from Corbin's Bounty Hunting ability. Julia already described the impossibility of a Corbin versus Corbin battle. Plus, the only way for Corbin to get his reward is to defeat the other hero. If Corbin finds a way to attack himself and ultimately win, then he is himself defeated. If Corbin is defeated he cannot collect the reward, and if you cannot collect the reward, why would you bother attacking yourself assuming it was otherwise possible? "Stop hitting yourself".

    Road to Legend Bug Report

    The exact same thing happened to me. Hopefully FFG will release a patch that fixes this, as we have been really enjoying the campaign. In the meantime, my gaming group switched to playing the Delve.

    Road to Legend Bug Report

    As an update, FFG released an update for Road to Legend for kindle, and it seems to resolve my inability to access the Delve. Whew! Thanks FFG!

    Road to Legend Bug Report

    Has anyone heard back from FFG about this? I e-mailed their customer service three times, the most recent having been sent February 4, and I have yet to hear a response.

    Road to Legend Bug Report

    That is exactly what my screen shows. Hopefully FFG releases an update that fixes this soon.

    Road to Legend Bug Report

    The new update made the Delve unavailable again for my kindle fire. Unfortunately, one of my saved games was a Delve game, so the game would show a black screen whenever I tried to load a saved game or play a new game. I ultimately had to power off the kindle for me to get the app working again. I deleted the app from my kindle, downloaded it again, and although my saved games are gone, the first scenario from the new campaign loaded up no problem. The Delve, however, remains unavailable.

    Holiday Sale -- what does this mean for BattleLore?

    Thanks for the feedback! I just placed my order.

    Holiday Sale -- what does this mean for BattleLore?

    Given that the core set is all that is left of the sale, is the game still worth getting? Looking through the instructions, it anticipates that players will use expansions or even additional core sets to amplify the experience, which has me wonder if the core set is a strong self-contained game. If I only have the core set, is it a game that has good variety and replayability? Thanks!
