Horrors From Beyond - Elder Sign: Omens Review

02 Jul 2013 09:00 #214291 by san il defanso

The most significant development in the world of hobby gaming over the last five years has been the arrival of iOS and mobile platforms as a vehicle for hobby titles. It didn’t take long for classics like The Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne to get a port to a mobile An iPad makes it simple to play against other people from around the world. Those of us who don’t use an iPad have fewer options, however. When I got a Kindle Fire for my birthday this year, I found that my mobile board game options were sadly limited. They’re getting better though, and Elder Sign: Omens makes a good case for putting more games on tablets. It’s slick, engaging, and expertly executed, and perfectly suited to the mobile environment.

Wow! Late to the party but I am really digging this game. It's currently on sale for $1.31 Canadian ($1 US)

It is a great iOS version. There are three big advantages that the physical version has:
- you actually get to roll dice
- you can see all of the potential tasks at once
- you can more easily play with other people

I have not tried the expansions for the app but would like to get them some day.

This is still the best board game app I've played, and the expansions are really great. I do think they are difficult enough that you can only win if you get lucky, but the game is pretty open about the difficulty.

It's an excellent app, and was the best I had on my phone until I installed Galaxy Trucker. I also don't find the physical game onerous to set up or play, but I have set it up many, many times and have it down pat.

I've played it way more than 100 times. It's brilliant.

It's totally boring with no thematic content.

Play Yahtzee!! instead or have a really good wank.

Change your avatar, Thirsty. I always look at it and think it's Lee.

Lee gave it to me after someone 'had a word with him' about how offensive his avatar was.

I told him to give it to me as that shit doesn't phase me.

It's not really offensive at all. It's kind of funny, really.

It's just that it's not "you".
