Of course we all know you CAN play with standard d6's (count 6 as black shield, 4-5 as white shield, 1-3 as skulls, for example) although it isn't as pretty.. . .

I guess I could try running the app off the (super slow) bluestacks emulator on my desktop.. . .

Gatch wrote:My brother plans on deliberately putting the app into a situation where you literally run out of closed doors and other pieces to put down, just to see what happens. He's wondering how the Zargon app would even react to such a scenario. He wants to see if he can break this app, or if the app will even acknowledge that he literally ran out of doors to use.

"Darkfire Crag" replaces Blackfire Crag, as expected...

Hasbro needs to get on this, methinks.
