Couple of turns, quite high speed! Worth a look.

This way is easier:



EDIT: Had a hard time figuring out how to get the video to work.

While I think it's great that something like tabletopia exists... after watching that playthrough I know it's not for me. I got frustrated just watching him try to click on things and searching around with a mouse. LOL

I'll be more excited to play the physical copy.

Agreed. The best video at the moment is the one with the three crazy Italians or perhaps Portugeuse, or...

I feel the same way. I was pretty excited when I realized there were tabletop simulators but once I tried one I decided that if I was going to play on the computer I would rather play an actual computer game. But it might get better once you get used to it.

I had to find my bearings at first on TableTopia, and I would definitely rather play a real live physical game if I have the chance, but it works quite nicely once you get used to it.
It was a nice way of trying the game before I get the actual copy, I'll be playing a couple more games this way in the coming week to really try a bunch of hero combos.

But there is definitely insufficient info about the functions!

- it is never mentioned to hover a card quite exactly over a deck until the color changes to add it to the deck. My first play was like card throwing everywhere
- I had problems how to pick up a whole deck. It took some time I found out to shift-click on them to carry them to another spot.
- strangely the event deck can't be made to a new deck, once the cards are drawn.

I agree that it's a cool way to get a feel for the gameplay, but not more.

On the other hand I heard it's hell of work to get everything scanned in tabletopia. So that might discourage other board game startups...

This may or may not be true for S&S but I've managed to do it in other games on TT. It requires dropping the cards on top of each other so they line up perfectly though.

Yes I know. See my first point.

Every other kind of cards but the event cards are stackable. Could be just an configuration error... or it is done purposely that way, because they shouldn't be shuffeled and come in this order. It's just strange, that's all.

I always shuffle the event deck "by hand". I also shuffel the 2 events on the map that way.
