Is there a digital version of this game or one being developed, does anybody know? Be good to have an easy to use platform with full rules enforcement for new players to play Async games / learn vs an AI opponent.

In life you have to do a lot of things you don't f*cking want to do. Many times, that's what the f*ck life is... one vile f*cking task after another.

Yep, Czech Games Edition is developing their own app for TtA. It should be released in 2016 for iOS and Android. Not sure about a PC/Mac version, but I think it was a possibility.

We're hoping to hook up with CGE at Gen Con next week and will, hopefully, get more info at that point. Watch here for more news.

I think I'm quite sure that TTA App will be release next year in 2017. They are working now on the GT APP expansion.

Well, it's perfect for async, fully rule-enforced, and very easy to use... assuming you know how to play. There are only two methods of input - click on cards to take them, and select all your other options from a drop-down menu.

I learnt to play on it, with a friend in contact via Skype, and I've played 95% of my games on there.

I have noticed, however, that some people I've played with who have an imperfect understanding of the rules can really bumble along for ages "playing" the game, without really understanding why certain things are happening. I don't recommend doing that.

BGO is pretty good, but Paul Grogan's Gaming Rules videos will help if you don't want to read through the rules.

That means NOTHING. They had a working demo last year at Gencon and the year before that at Gencon and STILL the app isn't out. Oh and the designers who had the license before they picked it up had two working demos at Gencon.

No. Would you be so kind as to point us to where that was said?

You need to learn your history a bit better. Yes, there was a working demo app in prior years, and then they decided to revise the whole game for the New Story, and so the app had to be redone. There is a reason things are on the timeline they are currently on.

It was posted on their website and in videos from last years Gencon where they said it would be out in Spring 2016. I know my history of this App quite well considering i bought a device to play it on 5 years ago when it was first announced.

The revised edition was the previous year when they decided to scrap that one and put out the new version of the physical game TTA's. They then said the new app for that version would not be out last fall because of a new design. they further promised that that update IOS version would now absolutely come out in the spring of 2016.

Edited it to find the old Czech games link. Here is the one they posted after writing in a blog that it was 150% coming out Spring of 2016. I can no longer find that designer blog.

http://czechgames.com/en/home/news-15-10-05-galaxy-trucker-d...

I know Vlaada has stated they hope to get it out by the end of 2016 but their last update info says they re-coded it again and are a long way off yet to a polished and marketable version at this point.

So let me get this straight. You understand very well why the old version was scrapped. So you know that anything pertaining to the old version is a moot point. And yet you keep harping on it, like it's somehow indicative of CGE's incompetence when it comes to releasing apps for games (totally ignoring that they've done this successfully for other games in the past, apparently).

If the app is out by then end of the year, that's what, six months late? That is NOTHING on the scale of video game release delays. Things happen in development, and that kind of delay is completely understandable.

Now I'm not saying everything will be perfect and it won't be delayed longer. I'm just saying your blatant pessimism and contempt are a bit premature and misplaced at this point.

Maybe CGE meant southern hemisphere Spring 2016. That's still a couple of weeks away from starting...

Take my money now!

I'll be curious to see which generations of iPads will be supported. I have a woefully old iPad 2. This might force me to finally upgrade.
