    Heh - it's got me stumped. I can figure out how to attack Tundle, I just can't figure out how to kill him.

    More to the point, the puzzle really drew me in. I'm a regular iOS player, but an...

    That was an awesome ending to that game, Airstone! Reminded me of Ender's Game - the enemy's gate is down! Well played, you totally deserved that win.

    The Best Way To Win (and other ruminations)

    I've had some thoughts along these lines in Heroscape and I'm having them here again about the balance between "fun" and "competitiveness". It seems to me that as a player, it is important to me not...

    Heh - and if you're up against PE? Sometimes there's exactly zero chance of pulling off a win several turns before you actually play to the end result.

    The only time I forfeited was when I knew it would take three-ish more turns to finish losing and I was eager to get on to the next game. I don't really have anything against a forfeit, personally,...

    gg Water Witch. I had all the right cards at all the right times. If you'd had a wall anywhere near the top of your deck I think you'd have had me.

    That was a well deserved win for you, WW. A very patient and controlled game. If forfeits don't add to your wins then I sincerely apologize. Just wanted to get on to our next game and not slog...

    What's scary is that I have a decent record with the CG, even after all that. Mebbe it's just because no one expects... the Spanish Inquisition!

    Speaking of mercs, Malevolence is practically designed to complement a Vanguard deck. At a cost of 1 magic to heal two wounds, Malevolence keeps what she kills.

    Heh - and just when I thought I'd slowed you down enough to pull things off, too :-)

    CG just flat out aren't my playstyle. The only way I get decent performance out of them is by loading up the deck with Berserkers and Spear Grounders or Vermin and treating them like a modified...

    Heh - no worries, and good game! Always a tough choice whether to spend that mana on unfreezing or on a hero. I have to say I appreciate the way you keep helping me to learn when my Summoner is...

    Nah - you had me beat, well done! I thought I might get lucky against Oldin, but I didn't have any way to get rid of that ranged 3 attack, even with Etul Bal. I sweated the placement of that wall...

    Heh - sometimes things just fall in your lap. Good game, Akden. I recently got beat by a guy with the JE on turn 1 with the right combination of Event cards to move everything around.

    FYI, in a lot of cases you CAN double tap a card and choose an action from the enlarged card. Mostly my experience with this has been accidental, but you may want to give it a try.

    iOS Hirelings: Spear Grounders

    The Spear Grounders are important because they are a melee 2Atk/2Life/2Cost bread and butter figure which everyone can use. At first it seems that their ability to diagonally put on the hurt is...

    I have a deck built around Phantoms and they're a ton of fun. You don't strictly need them to win the game for you, but when they work it is often game changing.

    Intriguing unused cards

    One thing that is so much more fun for me in the iOS game than in RL is deckbuilding. I have at least one custom deck for each faction and multiple for most, but there are cards that just never seem...

    I'd have to say that a well-timed freeze is currently the best exploit in the iOS game so I'm eager to see a fix like this.
