I just hope they don't do what they did with Lords of Waterdeep: wait two years before releasing the Android version.

it said "get it on google play" and the app store as well. So it should be for android. I'm not a big fan of phone games, but this might fill the times when I'm bored in a meeting.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

$10 for a mobile version of the board game?

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

That's not tremendously uncommon, sadly.

I was a big console and PC gamer back in the Golden Age of Computer Games in the 90s and early 2000s, we were accustomed to paying an average price of $40-$50 per game (for top AAA games).

A $10 mobile game, while not relatively "cheap" compared to other mobile games, is still reasonable, as long as it's well made and has good replay value. My opinion.

But is $10 really what you're going to spend on it? From the brief bit I read, it mentioned additional packs that can be purchased to augment your characters. The real question is, are those packs just for impatient players that want to skip ahead, or will they skew the gameplay to make it all but mandatory for anyone that isn't willing to grind 10 hours a day on the game?

That concerns me, as well. I've no issue with buying an expansion that adds to the game, but I'm not as enthusiastic about the bonuses only available via cash.

Ahh, didn't read that bit about potential add-on packs. Of course that would affect my decision as to the overall value of a (mobile) game.

Pay-for-play or Pay-for-premium-play has never been an attractive feature IMHO.
