At the beginning of the round, each player will successively plan an action from his action deck, ranging from moving around to luring the train marshal or looting the passengers.

But getting rich and not getting shot by your opponents are not always compatible objectives, and you might have to rethink your plan on the move

The boardgame has some very favorable reviews. Some reviewers have said that the real treat of the BG version is the 3D train that serves as the playing area. However, given the port to a 2D digital format, I'm looking for feedback from folks who have purchased this version commenting on how well it plays.

Bought and played, looks like a nicely produced game. Good tutorial, tried a bit of campaign also good... I'm new to the game so learning possibilities but seems nicely strategic with a dose of igougo haphazardness. It looks like another great conversion - recommended!

I'm very tempted but I have a hit and miss relationship with board games - both physical and virtual - but this has been on my games I'd like to play list for a while....

Excited to see this on iOS, and it does look like a nicely produced high quality game in the video. Do you have any thoughts on whether it'd be playable on iPhone (ie text too small or whatnot)? Nice find by the way.

Noooo! That sucks. 😧 😫 What happened to the days of iOS 6 and above? Apple's constant iOS updating and subsequently the Devs need to set a higher minimum OS to make sure it's 'future proofed' is really starting to do my noodle in!

I know.. This sucks a lot! No more the days where you had ios 6 or 7 for board games. These types of games are not too much graphic overload and could be played on past ios versions. You have to either constantly update your ios devices with everything this means: maybe lower performace OR buy new idevices periodically - regularly in order to have the latest ios version...
Next year we will have ios 11 and later on, 12 (ios 9 will be obsolete) and this goes forever...

Just played on my 6S - very playable. There isn't too much text in game (round start objectives mainly) and the cards have no text, but what is there is fine for me to read (I'm 'old' at just over 40... but don't have glasses).

Each round has 2 phases, schemin' (selecting cards for next few moves) and stealin' (carrying out those moves). Because each card action has a clear objective / action button (i.e. Big buttons come up to select which loot in a room you pick up,or which direction to punch) you don't need to click and hope on a smaller screen.

The admodee login for MP has saved my uname/pword and has synced my 1 player campaign progress across devices. Swapping to another app brings up pause screen (not tested quitting and overloading memory).

So all in It looks truly universal in that it's very playable on both. Looks stable, has no immediately obvious 'lack of developer love' niggles. Pandemic is a great digital board game conversion from Asmodee and this looks just as good.
