Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis

Fort Sumter: The Secession Crisis

A very faithful implementation of the original board game, which is a Eurogame by design with a historical ACW theme tagged on it. The game does have a decent AI and can be played solitaire as a result. Statistics on your own profile is available and so you can track your own performance vs. the AI. The only downside is the program still has a bug, freezing the solitaire game play from time to time and it seems Playdek was not aware of the issue. The multiplayer is easy to set up and game with score, measuring how you fare against others. However, there is no world ranking in the game, and different level of AI there is not. You can get notification in email when it is your turn in a game with another. A chat room is available but most of the time it is dormant. There is an alternate mapboard to give the game a variant, non-location look but I doubt people to use such a boring map. The gameplay is abstract and there is no manual inside the game or here on the Steam. You have to download it from the boardgame publisher GMT, as long as you are aware of it. This is absolutely a minor for the newcomer as the game itself is abstract and you are quite probably knowing what you are doing in the first few games. Once you get a hang out of the system, the game is smooth and quick to finish in 10 to 15 minutes. Overall, Fort Sumter is a game of tile-placement competing for control of the areas on the map. Score: 6.5/10.

I’ve been on the road a ton in the past couple of weeks and played the hell out of this. In about 60 offline games and a half-dozen online games I haven’t noted any gameplay bugs or rules/cards implementation problems as noted in another review. The recent AI bugfix improved the AI, and it’s competent enough in a mechanistic sense, but it' still a bit weak against experienced players, especially as it relates to setting things up in terms of the long game and Final Crisis. To be fair, that’s something the many human players don’t grok until they’ve played a while (which I have as an owner of the board game).

The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game - Definitive Edition

Ever since the online emergence of Magic: The Gathering (sadly not available on Steam anymore), many developers tried to copy the formula and release their own version of a turn-based card game either for mobile phones or PC. A flux of these came in 2015, when even major companies put heavy emphasis on releasing entries of this genre expecting huge income. Many actually became more successful than the original, mainly more and more people began playing games on their smartphones and due to the simpler rules used compared to MTG.

How much you’ll enjoy this game partially depends on your expectations beforehand. If, like many others, you’re a huge fan of the physical card game you might walk away disappointed, as it changes quite a few mechanics.

That being said, looking at the product objectively as a whole, it’s pretty solid. Personally, I think they improved on the game quite a bit. Granted, I find the physical card game it’s based on to be pretty mediocre. It’s probably one of my least favorite card games from fantasy flight. Whereas the physical version felt a little stale and slow, the digital version feels a lot snappier, interactive, and overall more intriguing than the physical version.

I had fun playing this game. Very relaxing the puzzles was. Plus the music made me feel sleepy as well.

I enjoyed unlocking the achievements. I had trouble finding out what to do to unlock the hidden achievement. But thankfully I found a website guide about the achievement.

So where do I even start? This community is wonderful, compassionate, and caring for everyone in the tavern. If you find any trolls or general annoyances, a simple report and a minute or two will sort the problem with in-game moderators to the case in a very short amount of time. The devs can also be found often playing games and in taverns, welcoming new players, answering questions, and even sometimes subtly hinting at new plans for the game. There is no Pay-To-Win at all in the game, not even if you wanted to. If you did want to support them however, you can buy gems which use real world money and go straight to the devs and back into the game if you use their website. These gems can be used to buy cosmetics and a premium pass.

Constant executable not found or disk write error when trying to launch. Previously had to keep reinstalling to get it to work right. Work around being to launch the game is through steams current downloading folder and engaging the exe from there. This occurs no matter what drive I point it to for the install be it my SSD or my HD and is the ONLY game this happens with out of all over 1000 of my other games this has never happened before. It makes it a pain to have to launch all the time.

With that said, despite what a pain it might be to launch the game it’s worth it. The only thumbs down I’m giving is for technical issues which aren’t addressed and not to do with my side of hardware. The community is helpful and nice, the game is a great idea and well implemented. It’s an all around fun game that I think might develop into something even better. It’s not pay to win in any way, anything purchased for currency is cosmetic only which is really nice. Everyone has equal chances at getting to the same place just some look fancier than others.
