Re:

If you think playing Nethack can't be an excellent experience on modern mobile devices, then you clearly haven't tried Pathos. And you really should. It's Nethack for mobile, it's free, it's on iOS and Android, and its near-perfect interface refutes your entire article. Reading this thread I was ab...

Re: Twilight Troubles

Thanks for bringing Twilight Strategy to my attention. Looks useful. But the link in the article is a bit mangled, should be https://twilightstrategy.com . Agreed. At the moment as rank beginner I find Twilight Strategy a real help in learning the game. Happily however, Twilight Strategy's theory s...

Re: Twilight Struggle

But Twilight Struggle is the better game, without question. It is indeed! TS has been near the centre of my radar for years and years... first as boardgame and then kickstarter... but I've never played it until now and had NO IDEA how truly magnificent the game is. Wow. I'll probably buy the cardbo...

Leap of Faith

@OBollocks & @riotgirl

just wanted to say it was this thread and your conversation that finally pushed me over the edge to plonk down €10 for the iOS version.

Re: Twilight Struggle

Thanks for another fine review Kelsey! Seven years ago, my friend Mike and I set aside a month to learn two two-player games, and for seven years I have wished we had enough time for a third, because Twilight Struggle was both of our second choices. Even though curiosity killed the cat I can't help ...

Re: (Eon) Altar of Discovery

@ iBaLkiD Ach... I don't want to argue with you (though I do wonder if you actually went back and refreshed your memory concerning Dave's end of the year announcement concerning "Owen's" outright misrepresentation of the facts).

Re: (Eon) Altar of Discovery

(...) This all took forever to go down (i think just over a year) and was done so with the utmost transparency. Not sure why people are getting all up in arms. You just missed the boat.
