Dice rolling in a game can be used for many things, randomness being the most obvious. Dice can also be used as counters. The dice themselves can be unique and different sizes, shapes and colors to represent different things.
Play occurs upon a modular board that is composed of multiple pieces, often tiles or cards. In many games, board placement is randomized, leading to different possibilities for strategy and exploration.Some games in this category have multiple boards which are not used simultaneously, preserving table space. Unused boards remain out of play until they are required.
Some board games incorporate elements of role playing. It can be that players control a character that improves over time. It can also be a game that encourages or inspires storytelling.
Variable Player Powers is a mechanic that grants different abilities and/or paths to victory to the players.

Honestly, people review bombing this are doing one hell of a disservice to this game. It’s an INCREDIBLE game. The writing is clever, and when played with the right people, it’s an ABSOLUTE blast! Thus far, I’ve done 2 missions (the tutorial and one more). Both have given me 3 hours and 11 minutes played (each). And I’ve had a BLAST on both! Both have taken drastically different turns, choices you make with your character, dialogue options, and inspecting things all change the flow of the game based on which character does / says / inspects anything, the item management is NOT NEARLY as bad as people say. Just accept that everyone gets a share and do just that….share and it’ll literally all work well. Think teamwork. The app works great. I play on an iPad, and mirror it to my tv and it looks and sounds awesome. 10/10 Looking forward to continuing to play.
No, sorry. I really-really enjoyed and loved Imperial Assault with the app, I like MoM the same way and thought LotR was okay-ish, but Legends of the Dark ist just plain bad. Waaaay too much ongoing within the app, the “board” game here feels completely irrelevant and 150 bucks is laughable. The comments saying the price tag is fine due to the “awesome” app is crap. Either a board game with plenty of physical content for 150 oooor three video games, not this hybrid thing that is an expensive video game with barely any board game in it.
Have had a lot of fun playing the scenarios. The miniatures are amazing, the terrain looks great on the table, the App works great and seems very polished. Love how it does the slow reveal, the bookkeeping, and the combat math. A great assist to the solo player; running four characters with no issues.
