Holy assssss - this is incredible! Ghost Stories is easily my favorite board game (and arguably one of the hardest in existence on Hell difficulty). Just go on and release Runebound for iPad and my life will be over. Insta buy!

Does it have AI to play with you, or do you have to find other people?

Ghost Stories is a cooperative game where players work together to beat the game itself. There is no "AI" like a lot of games. Instead the game has a set of mechanics and rules that govern how the enemies are created and act, which the players have to defeat (which is a form of an "AI").

The more exact question is whether there is a "solo" mode where one player can play against the game. Even if there isn't a pure "solo" mode and 2 or more player characters are required, a single person can often play as multiple players without harming the game.

Thanks for the answer. One more quick question, if you please. How is the game designed and meant to be played? Online or pass and play?

Thanks!

Yes. Dunno about the exact time though. At best, it'll be out on midnight local time. At worst, it'll be out at 11 PM EST (ie once it's out in US). In either case, you'll be waiting for 12 hours max so not too much of a wait left.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 08:33 AM.
