Is there any way to tell your opponents' total score while the game is going on?

Count yourself. The game is already easier than the board game because you can dig through your own discard pile.

You can count your own score, but you can only count your opp's score if you remember or write down every card he purchased/defeated, since the log doesn't show every turn.

And damn Camzy, I spent the entire game trying to get Samael, and you get it the last turn (and you didn't even seem to be trying to get it)! Actually, I should have known better - any time I've tried to get one of the high cost (7/8) cards from the beginning, I've nearly always failed and ended up losing the game.
how interesting .I usually manage to get those 7/8 cards. Huge factor is luck of course. I usually aim for the mystics since those are the most useful IMO. It lets you get bigger cards to get more power for middle/late game and also gives you a solid construct pool.


Anywho, just wanted to say "sorry" to everyone. I just recently got a Vita and it has really taken away from iOS gaming. I already dropped a bunch of games. but i'll try harder to be more consistent with this one since i love it and the community so much.

Yeah it's a lot of fun playing you. You have some really smart plays and I think I'm about even against you, you may even have the upper hand.

Edit: Also set a new personal multiplayer record. 166 points. I had 12 constructs :P

Just won three 4 player games in a row with kitkeat, celeric and emos.

I find playing 4 player games not all too different from playing 2 player. Same concept, build a solid deck that works well together. There are a few key things though which differ.

1. Don't lead in honor. The Sordid Asp is painful and you have three more opponents to take advantage of killing it.

2. Banishing is slightly less important because you typically get fewer turns. Maximize gains from constructs and +1, draw type cards.

3. Don't buy more infantry than you would otherwise because the honor pool is bigger. celeric did this a lot and it didn't help him very much.

In 4 player games, find draw cards to be the best. I still go for quite a few constructs, but there are 3 other people that may make me discard them. Completely agree about the honor pool, given I generally try not to focus on honor as I feel I do better at focusing on getting better cards. Only time that really fails me are shorter games when the other person focuses on getting honor and ending the game in fewer turns

Just my experience, feel I do better in 4 player games, sadly they always seem to take a week or more to finish as 1 or 2 players always seem to drop out waiting for the 3 day time limit set. (what I always make my time limit for them)

Also, play Camzy quite a bit, feel free to invite me to games as well! Playing Camzy over and over made me learn quite a bit and feel I do decently well.

Any word on a Retina update for iPad? This game needs it badly.

You guys are getting better and better -- now most of you can cast 6 or even 8 runs before round 8 now, some time even at turn 5 or so. Need to catch up.

Any word on the update (bug fixes and feature requests, not RD)

Statement: Star Wars has 2 characters with strange use of grammar: Yoda and HK-47. I pick HK-47 for it is meaner.

Honestly, I was never terribly good at games. - Finch (PoI S2E16)
