Yeah, happen to me alot. And like someone mentioned earlier, i dont get why the play online button is active when u are not logged in to gc yet. That makes the app crashes alot since it tries to connect to server.
This also makes me keep on staring whether the gc log in notification has popped up or not.

I hope the dev fix this

How do you guys like Nightfall... i grabbed it a few days ago but didn't take the time to figure it out yet. Is it worth putting the time into understanding it right now? Or shall it go on the "to-get-to-later" list?

if you do get this game.... you'll discover the secrets of time travel... sad part is that you'll only move into the future... once you start up this game, you might jump 3-6 hours into the future...

cprloe 2-1 Camzeee

cprloe's through! Congrats on two really well played games. I thought I had an advantage with Dreamer's Glass, but you pulled Everbloom turn 2 and I never saw daylight again.

Currently Playing: Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, Summoner Wars

Thanks, Camzy. On Turn 1, I was torn between Dreamer's Glass and Treasures of the Study. I picked Treasures and the center row worked out well for me so that I could basically bludgeon you every turn by discarding two cards and gaining three honor. With my leftover cards, I was able to buy Heavy Infantry which allowed me to take out a bunch of monsters as well. I don't win that game if the center row had been rune heavy.

When you pulled 5 runes on Turn 1 and picked Dreamer's Glass, I thought I was doomed. Given the way the board fell, there wasn't much you could do to combat my strategy as no monsters came up that would force me to discard Treasures. If there was something you could, I know for sure that you would have done it.
