Nerd Appropriate: Nightfall on iOS is a great way to play cards with friends when you cant get a gaming crew together.

New In-App Purchase Expansion: Nightfall: Martial Law

Nightfall: Martial Law introduces many new characters, actions and new color combinations for creating chains and achieving kickers. Martial Law will also introduce the new "Feed" mechanic which will allow players to get even more uses out of their orders. The game also brings to the table a new Wound effect that is sure to surprise opponents.

In Nightfall, players must master hordes of ghouls, vampires and werewolves as they struggle to gain control of a post-apocalyptic world.

Begin with a set of starter Minions then draft cards into your private Archives, play cards into the Chain in order to maximize the effectiveness of your cards and Claim new Minions and Actions to pit against your foes. Attack your opponents every round in an effort to weaken your rivals. Time is limited and only mastering all Phases of the game will leave you standing as the victor at the end of the game.

Nightfall for iOS brings AEG's modern horror game to select iPods, iPhones and iPads.

I downloaded the update, and the In-App purchases menu says Martial Law is available for $2.99 (though BoardGameGeek reported it'd be $1.99 a week or so ago). Not one to quibble over $1, I instantly tried to buy anyway, but the transaction won't go through (says the item is being modified). I'll wait a bit and try again a little later - maybe they're trying to update the price in the system.

Looking forward to finally playing this one!

We've had a hitch in the in-app pricing - please give Apple's system a chance to update it to the correct price: $1.99

We had a playtest price listed, and updated it this morning, and we think the price change is still going through the apple system - my apologies!

After Apple's system updates the price will be $1.99

Heh this is just the final bit of teasing, standard operating procedure for a Playdek release I love that we're getting 3 new promo cards with Martial Law. If I get good enough I'll send out a few invites to the pros here, right now I only play tecwrtr.

Wow... one game with the new cards and I am absolutely loving the new set! I can't seem to find how to unlock the new promos though. I see no new achievements... or maybe they haven't updated yet for some reason.

Haha I already unlocked Ahmad Hassan for some reason after the first game! I beat the AI 21 to 0 btw, Chan Jiang is brutal, combined with Roland LeFontaine I was able to bully the AI throughout the game! (lv 3 AI)

Yeah, it's been so long since I unlocked the promo cards for the base set I can't remember exactly what the conditions were, but I seem to remember them being tied to achievements in some way. I unfortunately don't see any new achievements for some reason, so no idea how to unlock these promo cards.

Like you, I unlocked Ahmad Hassan after the first game - not sure what the trigger was. Didn't know it was unlocked until I checked the "Card Sets" section. I hope we get some indication of how to unlock the other two to give us some sort of goal.

Really glad to finally have some new cards - after well over a hundred games just playing the base set, it was starting to get stale. Now we've a bigger pool to play with. Really looking forward to getting the digital version of Coldest War - the option to play with new starters will help mix up the often slow first few rounds ("ok, everyone has finally got their Yury's played and out of the way").
