App description: A turn-based strategy game pitting two players of Light and Shadow against each other with asymmetric forces and hidden units.

For Light to be victorious, the player must sneak the Prince to the Shadow Stronghold. Shadow, on the other hand, is tasked with finding and defeating the Prince (Or moving 3 characters into the Light Capital).

Like many of Reiners designs, The Confrontation can be played casually between beginners or as deeply as master level chess: its up to you and your opponents!


- Solo play versus multiple AI opponents.
- Realtime online multiplayer.


Requires a retina display and iOS 7 or higher, so we recommend a minimum of iPad 3 or iPad Mini 2 or newer.

It is with great pleasure that I report to the TA community that this fine game runs and looks great on iPhone 6+, under the proviso of a JB or other such enhancement.
Just thought I'd inform those that are interested.

Wow! That's great to hear Talbs. We didn't originally envision it being played on an iPhone but after reading this we'll be sure to investigate adding official support for it

Check out our recently funded Kickstarter for Reiner Knizia's The Confrontation!

No prob! The text in places is on the smaller side sometimes. Such as the quick description text when first click is done on a unit. But even that is passable. Stuff like that is something us ipad>iPhone conversionists mind little about. Really for the most part it looks exactly how it should on my 6+. Obviously can't speak for the smaller screens.

I've had a short go through and it's looking promising. Can't wait to sink my teeth in to some knizia strategy.

Pretty interested. Waiting on some imps on solo. I'll play 90% of the time in solo mode.
Looks like it could be fantastic!

Too bad it didn't get to keep the Lord of the Rings theme but I'm still glad to have this in digital form at my beckon call.

There is an unlock for "variant mode". Can I ask what is that? And how is it unlocked? Because it's greyed out for me currently.
