The app doesn't adjudicate player hits or monster defense.

You handle that stuff. Now there have been a couple times I thought my wizard had LOS on a monster but the system said no LOS was available. But again one can decide the LOS is there and just resolve the situation and update if a monster is killed.

Pretty much it is set on an honor system.

When you cast a spell, it doesn't delete them from your options. I have to keep track of that myself.

LOL So now my barbarian has it. Why mess with tradition.

Another great thing would be that you don't need the Remake to use it, as it should be fully compatible with the classic edition. Sure, the new heroes aren't part of the classic set, but their stats and everything have been available since the public playtest back during the pledge drive, so you can use pencil and paper for those and substitute any miniature to represent them.

I think it should indicate the square then not light it up and leave it up to the player to remember. But it is what it is.

Is the multiplayer "hotseat" (hand the phone over to the other person when it's their turn) or is there some connectivity online? (guessing its the former)...

Have you gotten it to crash yet by doing anything crazy?

You can only run 4 heroes.
The order of play is up to the person with the phone. The intent is for you to use it as a virtual Zargon with your board.

No crashes. But it did seem to do an update while I had my game resting. (nice part is you can walk away and pick it up later) I can no longer go as many spaces as I want. Limited to max 12. I was able to just move as much as I wanted at first.

I haven't used the spell yet, as it is of little use most the time other than to catch up a slow poke, and I tend to only move no more than 6 or 7 even if I roll high move. Easier to optimize tactics if everyone stays close.. I am sure it will be ok...I will check soon.
