This is now available on BGA: http://en.boardgamearena.com/#!gamepanel?game=tashkalar

The implementation is pretty slick. I've only run into a few speed bumps-- when an effect lets you make "any number of moves in one direction", the site expects you to pick the destination space, rather than clicking each space you're moving onto in sequence. This makes sense in retrospect but surprised me (I think I missed out on some Storm Elemental-based destruction because of it).

I am worried I will lose many hours to the possibility of playing Tash-Kalar any time day or night. But I've been looking forward to this ever since CGE said they hoped to make an online implementation; this game really shines with the computer tracking flare eligibility.

Holy ****!

That's a fantastic addition to their line-up!

Here I'm waiting for the CZE upgraded release together with expansion (January I hope), so this would be great to assuage the wait.

And, as always with BGA, it's very well-implemented. They are tops as far as online board games go, in my opinion.

The implementation is nice. Though I still prefer boiteajeux for online implementations. It bugs me the way the cards keep rearranging themselves all the time on BGA.

I'm glad this is playable somewhere online, but I would have prefered a Different Site as BGA
Playing there works not that good in phone and if your Connection is Bad you have to wait ages while maligne your turn

Are there board game sites that do work well on phones? I haven't even tried because it seems like the amount of information onscreen would be too much for a tiny screen no matter what.

I play dozens of Different games in Yucata.de and Most of them Work Perfect. There are just a few where you can't zoom out, which is annoying.
Also the games I played on boiteajeux worked good

Yucata is rather good on mobile, but I haven't tried with BGA.



Anyway, I learned Tash-Kalar when the BGA implementation came out and I love it, so thanks, BGA!

Just in case anyone here missed it : Deathmatch Melee is now available as well on BGA (before last week it was just two players games).

I haven't been able to get very many 3p melee games together, which is too bad-- it's really interesting!

Is there any chance to see demons or etherweave on arena?
