Default Micheal Schacht's Web of Power Card Game: The Duel

The name just rolls off the tongue, no?




No clue how this game work's but as I like the other conversions of Skotos Tech, I'm sure this one will be spot on as well.

I loved Schact's Gold. It's one of my all-time favorite card games. I have every one of Skoto Tech's Knizia titles. Under the hood this game is powered by the same engine. No brainer. I'm buyin'...

Looks good, but I'd live to know if this has sound, etc. I don't think most of the Skotos apps do, do they?

I'm pretty sure most do now. Basic stuff but there is some sound in most of them now.

Skotos' apps are bare bones and don't have any form of online play, nor even local bluetooth play. I would love them if they did and if they hired somebody a lot more capable to help with the artwork. They are useful for finding out if I like the games. I'd really like to get a real copy of Gold, but I don't think it's ever been released in the US.

Another fine Euro card game release. There's a fair bit of strategy involved. I lost my first two games on easy mode, but they served as learning experiences. I won the third game, but it certainly wasn't a cake walk, and it was still on the easy setting. I will say again that I think async on a game like this, while nice, isn't necessary, because unless you are playing your opponent continually, the game would take forever to complete.

Here's a link to the physical version of the game. It may help out a bit:

Asynch allows you to play with friends online and save your progress to continue late. For play with strangers you need live play or timers like Ascension or per turn. Aside from that, though, these games don't even have any form of local multiplayer.
