Digital Games

After much deliberation I decided to purchase the Digital Version of Raiders of the North Sea.  Now don't get me wrong, I'd much rather play a solo game with the actual game to get the tactile experience.  However, I was going back and forth, because the solo deck was going to run about $20, and the digital game was $10.  Plus I figured I could play when I didn't have the time to set up a game (like tonight while I'm holding my 4 month old).

First, it was easy to play and actually really fun.  I was able to play against 3 AI opponents to really create a full game experience.  Plus, it has the added benefit of a Pass and Play, Campaign Mode, and an Online Mode.  So if anyone here has it or was thinking about getting it I though it'd be a great way for us to become friends in the app and game together across the country.  Let me know if you have it in a DM and we can share user names.

I tagged Scythe because I also own that game digitally (got it during a sale for 6.99).  If anyone has that I'd love to play that with you online too.

Cheers.

I’ve wanted to get some of the app games before for a couple reasons. First, to try out games before I buy them, but also because there is no setup! Haha haven’t bought any yet but this is making me think about doing that again.

Lack of setup is nice. Physical components are even nicer.

Yeah definitely. I think it would be nice to play a game that isn’t solo but has AIs. Just for those days you can’t find anyone... haha

I've been considering Raiders of the North Sea on iOS for a while now. I have a gift card to use up, so that seems like a good option. I may have to now since it looks like a few of you play it.

That would be a way for me you and @Skurvy5 could get a game in together across the country.  (more pressure) 😂

Oh the power of peer pressure.

I think I will. Got a gift card to spend, so why not!

I have Scythe on steam.  My username is cwb95k.  Send me an invite and I'd love to play sometime.  I have Raiders saved to my favorites.  It's $9.99 so I need to save up a little credit before I get that but I am very interested.

Hmm, that didn't seem to work either. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Well, that sucks.  I wrote your ID down and will play with it once I get a chance.  I'm heading out of town tomorrow so it might take awhile.

I'll be on the lookout.  Have a good trip.

sdirrane Supporter8 days ago | 1 point[-]

Awesome I'll add you and we can figure out a time to get in a game sometime.

Glad to hear you like it. 

I hear you about some of the advantages of digital ports. One advantage you didn't mention is the "try before you buy" advantage. Sometimes you can try a range digitally if you are trying to decide whether or not to buy it physically.

Do you have it on iOS or Steam? I picked it up on iOS. So if it works on there we could play. 

sdirrane Supporter8 days ago | 1 point[-]

I have it on iOS 👍🏼

Cool! We are in business then. I’ll be your friend!
