Relaxing Turn Based, Strategy Game! This one is a classic and I played the trial, will add to my buy list...The game definatally has a learning curve to it. I played the full trial. I read everything and don't rush (I like to enjoy my games at a relaxing pace), there is a bit to read in the tutorial, and you should also play a "practice" game to learn what your doing. I didn't finish a full "game" during the trial. Even if I didn't read everything, I can't see how anyone beat the game with 10 mins left in the trial, unless as another reviewer said "They must have rushed". I'm a long time RPG player, so wasn't a strech for me, but still much to learn, I did get the basic combat and turns right away. You get 5( or was it 6?) turns. Which means you can move so many places (the flags help you add your moves) to; take over a state, ask robinhood for help, rescue/kidnap a princess, attack a army, bulid a castle or keep, or do a tourneyment. You can also buy and build your army. This is one example where you needed to play to learn. Keep in mind that is a 2 step process. You buy them.. and if you are on land with a Castle or a Keep, you can transfer them and your army grows. If not.. you'll have to move to one or wait a turn!! If attacked, you won't have them, if you couldn't add them after buying! The cards help defence or offence. When offered 1 you can place it in your "hand" below, or if you don't want it, EXAMPLE: you have a 100% upgrade your knights, and you are offered a 50% one? Obviously you'd keep the 100% card. Instead of adding it to your hand, drag it to the deck to "reject it". I didn't get far enough into battles to learn how to change cards during one. I lost1 battle learning and won 1. Trial ended midway in my 3rd battle.I liked the game! It's a great way for beginers to learn this type of gameplay, or improve it to play harder ones. It has great replay value, as you have 4 "Kings"(?) to chose, each with different +/-'s, and the moves the AI (computer players, they are highlighted to the left) are different, based on your actions.You can also move the options to where ever you want on the screen, if you don't like how they are set up. Nice option. For me, its a buy. I read there is no save? If that is true, I'm not bothered by the "no save" feature. Just play the game when you have time to finish. Kind of like saying "OK, lets play a game of *insert board game here*, you know it's going to take time. For me it will be a go to game when I have a few hours to play, in between other genres I normally play. Like HOGS, Adventures M3s and Builders etc.It's what I call a "game pallette cleanser". No walk-through required, no sneekers (lol) just a relaxing turn based combat (I do not play action based games due to hand disabilities, So I love when I find any turn based games! If your a HOG M3 player.. it's like prefering Untimed/Relaxed game play. No stress to make your move. For me, it was a nice surprise and a hidden gem! It's a game you must try first, while it won't be everyones cup of tea, don't let the lack of reviews stop you from giving it a test drive yourself! Happy Gaming! July 2, 2013
