This is a great game - you all can find out a ton of info from BoardGameGeek (BGG) including reviews of the physical boardgame here: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/71671/yggdrasil

This is a cooperative board game with a Norse theme. It can be very difficult, and has been compared to Ghost Stories (another great co-op boardgame that is available on iPad).

I can leave impressions later.

thanks transcend11

looking forwarding to hearing what you think of it ...
I'm still trying to figure out if it has online mp or not ?

The app description does not say, the BGG News plug mentioned online, there is Game Center apparently, but the dev website only mentions pass n play....

so I'm entirely unsure....but asking everyone I can

I'm interested to know if this is Retina-enabled for the new iPad...board games are always better with Retina graphics .

Any first impressions? Sanuku?

I saw a few videos of this a while back and it looked very clunky,but I'm always interested in good coop games.

No online multiplayer.

The dev responded on FB
Quote:
Sorry, there is no online multiplayer mode, but you can play with several friends on the same Ipad. ;-) Hoe you will enjoy thus!
And looks like there is some type of tutorial, going by the screenshots.

I posted a link back here on Ludonaute's FB page asking them to come join in.

Hi!

I am the publisher of Yggdrasil. I beg your pardon in advance for my poor English.

Here are some answers:
- there is no online mode for the application; we considered that it is not the best way to play such an application of a co-operative game.
- Of course we included a tutorial in the app
- Sorry, the app is not retina-enabled; we are thinking now about it (but we were so excited to release Yggdrasil for Ipad as soon as possible ). The issue is to combine retina with the size of the app...

I hope that you would enjoy the game.
Cheers!
Anne-Cécile

Thanks much for stopping in Anne-Cécile !

We very much appreciate the information.

I would bet that the group here can provide some very useful feedback in regards to the game and I hope we get to hear more from you in the future.
