@quid_pro_bono: I won the regular version, and won it on my first try, but the whole time I felt like I Was doing something wrong or missing some...thing I couldn't put my finger on. I got what they tell you about getting multiple attacks out of minions via positioning, but balancing the unfamiliar cards and the opponent's hero power was unsettling.
In a little over a month, I'm having a significant surgery and I've been told I'll be in the hospital recovering for 5 days and to expect to be laid up for a few more days at home afterwards. For any time I'm not doped up, I'm looking for recommendations for 3DS, Vita, and iPad/iPhone games to check out. I've listed some of what I have on tap below, but would love recommendations for other things to branch out into, i.e. I have a ton of JRPGs for my Vita already, what else would you recommend on that system that's different or what solid JRPGs am I overlooking on 3DS/mobile? Same with card games for my iPad, etc. I'm looking at this as a chance to branch out and try new stuff.
Vita: Persona 4 Golden, FF VI-IX, MLB The Show 15, Guacamele
iPad: Hearthstone, Pathfinder Adventures (would love something more like this!), SolForge, Ascension, Magic Duels
iPhone: Marvel Puzzle Quest (damn you Whitta!)
3DS: Fire Emblem (Awakening/Fates/Conquest/Birthright), Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask
Would also love book and comic recommendations. My current reading list is 10% Happier, and Designing Games by RimWorld's creator Tynan Sylvester, with plans to reread American Gods, Good Omens, and The Kingkiller Chronicles, but I can replace those with other recommendations. Comics to get caught up on are Sex Criminals, WicDiv, and Black Panther. Also thinking about checking out some of the DC Rebirth stuff.
Thanks to Mike for the awesome Tavern Brawl and help unlocking the 80 gold quest. In case you were wondering, BOTH players get 80 gold, but the person with the quest must send the challenge for it to count as completed in his/her log. If anyone else wants help with this, I'm usually up for a game.
I'm Asmo917#1312 and I have the "Challenge a Friend" quest for 80 gold. If anyone else wants in on this, hit me up on B.Net, but be warned - the quest appears to be bugged in some cases. I challenged a friend earlier today, we completed our match, and didn't get the gold. Seems to be a known issue on the forums. But I"m always open to friend requests.
