I love board/card games but I'm not quite sure about this one, I'll have to do some research before I think about buying it.

I just saw this one while browsing in AppShopper. Looks really good but hoping for some impressions first. I'm not entirely sure what they mean by a sophisticated card game. From the pictures and description it doesn't look like a tcg, but maybe more like the lotr LCG?

Ok, long time lurker, figured I'd TOFTT for my first post. I'll put up a description of gameplay in about an hour or so.

I'd TOFTT but damn, I've nowhere near enough room ATM on my iPad. Looks nice though. Beats the usual dragons/classic fantasy artwork found in other CCGs and the one payment ethic is my cup of tea.

This looks like a real good game. Games on ios are just getting so good if I was Sony I'd be terribly worried. I used to spend all my time on my pc/ps 3 gaming now its the other way around.

I've been playing Talisman a lot today and am still learning Eclipse but this has my gaming mouth watering.

If theres music and some voice overs I'll find it very hard to resist. Atmosphere is everything in a game like this. Looks really good.

In essence it's a match cards in your hand to one of the three threats on the table to nullify the threats until all are gone in order to get a point. Three points and you win.

In practice it is quite a bit more. Multiple decks are involved, each of which affect gameplay in a unique manner. The mood set in the game is pervasive. There is no standard iconography such as forward, back, exit, etc buttons. These are instead replaced with pictures that fit the voodoo like theme of the game. The cards all rely on unique icons instead of words to indicate what they are and what affect they have on gameplay. If you do not play the tutorial you will be lost.

Most importantly, I'm finding it enjoyable, and am looking forward to playing it some more. I'd buy it again if I had to make the choice all over again.
