Obviously the stylus won't work on the TV screen. I was wondering how often you find yourself using the device you are mirroring FROM. Just to build armies?

I am going back and forth between an iPad Air2 or picking up a cheap flatscreen 20" or so and a Chromecast. The larger screen would be optimal for viewing, of course, but to build armies I would still have to use the stylus to peck at the screen on the Samsung S6. It's such a pain to use my glasses AND a magnifying glass that the last two armies I created I was just picking anything to get it doneshake

Can anyone else with bad eyes give me some feedback?

There's lots of cheap tablets on the market now...probably no more than the TV would cost. Have you considered getting something like that?

For army building and such I just use my iPad.

I have recently gotten a TV for use during demos and it is fun to play but I find that I don't look at the screen all that much anymore other than to check die rolls. It is really fun though to see it on a bigger screen.

Just finished demo'ing at BGG.con with the device and mirrored TV and paid attention to how much I used the device.

I used the device to set up a scenario but never touched it beyond that.

The players to whom I was demo'ing played their scenarios without ever touching the device.

I only mirror to the big screen as playing just by device is not much fun for us. Screen is too small.
