I just downloaded the Hexwar pc version of the game and it is currently 20% off. I have not had a chance to dig into the game yet but there appears to be no tutorial. Will need to watch some vids and read the rules before I can really appreciate the game.

I'm playing the mac version, and there is a tutorial that pops up as you go through a game. The options have a "reset tutorial" option in case you ave to see them again.

I played the beta a number of times and I am really happy how well it keeps true to the board game. The AI is pretty good and makes some moves that makes me smile.

Sorry but those tutorial tips are just that, brief descriptions. A dedicated tutorial explaining the game flow is what I was referring to. Not a problem, one read through the manual and watch some youtube play throughs and I'll be set...

Sweet I think I would grab that too. Also hope they bring over 1812 as well.

During the Reinforcements Phase, have any of you received the message, "No valid locations to add reinforcements.", when there are?

My current example is playing as the Americans, during the Continentals turn, the Americans control Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Georgia. I should be able to place my four reinforcements into the city areas of any of those colonies. But instead, I get the above message while the game forces me to click on the "End Phase" button. The Continentals have only 27 cubes in play.

Has this happened to anyone else, or am I missing something?

Thx!

Also, here's another bug(?) that I discovered:

It's the Continental's turn, playing a 3 Armies x1 movement card. For some reason, the game won't let me move an Army from Western Massachusetts into Southern New Hampshire, even though they are adjacent to each other. (See the situation in the image below.. note how Southern New Hampshire isn't shaded green as a legal movement option)?

Then on a later turn, I played a "move two spaces" card, and it would let me make that move, then.

So it seems that the game thinks southern New Hampshire is two spaces away from Western Massachusetts!

Agree it seems like a bug. Be sure to submit a support ticket or post to the community forum on Steam. Hexwars is actively monitoring and have been very responsive to my posts. I have opened two support tickets and they said they will start working them on Monday.

Patch 1.03 is out and I think fixed this. They do seem to listen and respond which is always nice.

Yes! Though 1.03 only fixed the 2nd bug I posted above. It didn't fix the 1st ("No valid locations to add reinforcements") bug. I was able to narrow down the situation in which that bug occurs and have updated my post over in the Steam community forum with that info. Hopefully they can address it for the next patch.

But you're absolutely right that they seem very attentive to bug reports and try to fix them!

So glad to see that they are working on the game to make it better. 1.04 just came out today. They listen and respond.

Yeah, I posted a few bugs on the Steam forum and they responded immediately, and had them fixed in each of the following patches!
