Question 1 is too specific. I suspect most groups are more chaotic. Sometimes a player reads for a bit and passes it on, sometimes people read silently, sometimes whoever fancies reading it will read it. What about players who pass it around and read to themselves? The fixing of styles to stationary/passing seems limiting.

Also, it is irrelevant for solo players - they'll always answer 4, but you're not differentiating them from groups.

Sorry, don't mean to be mean. A 'None of the above' at least would be useful.

Question 1 was meant more as a "which is the most common occurrence" sort of thing. I also assumed solo players wouldn't answer that question.

It's not just that either. So far we've played with two. In a larger group I'd have people pass the app around and read it out loud, but with two players we can both see the screen and reading out loud to each other just feels a bit weird...

I played it with one group of friends on a tablet, then played it with one of them on my Blackberry Passport, then played it a third time by myself with the Dell XPS 12, which is sort of a in-between of large tablet and laptop...

1. One person holds the ipad mini/2nd gen etc and does all the stuff, except for puzzles, we then hand it around.

2. I've used my ipad mini, my kindle fire, an ipad 2nd gen and my laptop.

One player reading and immediately TRANSLATING to others :-) Not everyone understands English...

If you add to #1: Passed a device around, a non-active player read the text aloud - I could then answer your poll.
We find it much more immersive this way.

We run it on a PC with a large monitor and a wireless mouse that we pass around.

We are using steam on a PC and Steamlink at the TV with a Steam controller. To my experience it works much better (more stable and better quality of sound and picture) than using an android phone and cast it to GoogleCast.

I have been umming and erring over the best way to do this. I agree that some groups can be a mish mash for question 1, but on the whole, I like the one designated reader, except for puzzles.
