Yes pls, I'm very curious to know how the single player experience is since this is a coop game if I'm not mistaken.

Picked this up out of curiosity.

There's a tutorial but it's too short, I have lots of game mechanics questions.

You can pick 4 characters but it's not clear if that's desirable or more for pass & play with people. I tried 4 characters and found it very difficult, seems it may be better to use just 1 or 2. Anyone know if not picking 4 character puts you at a disadvantage?

Unless you have great eyes or an iPhone Plus this is hard to play on a phone, looks fine on an iPad.

Count be an interesting game, at the moment I'm finding it very difficult once guards get 4 movement points. Lots to learn before I can provide a useful review. If anyone knows the rules a short tutorial/tips beyond the in-game one would be appreciated.

Its a great board game! Played it a few times so far and I think having four characters is challenging. Using two characters is a little easier, less chances of getting caught.

Playing by yourself works just as well. You can choose how many characters you want to play with, from one to four.

Edit: this video is the kickstarted version but the mechanic hasn't changed. It's pretty good at getting you started.

That's one thing that keeps me from buying the game - the font in Holy Potatoes A Weapon Shop is really difficult to read on my iPhone 7.

How are other users feeling about the font size on an iPhone 7?
