Quick and easy question for folks with the game - would a 1 or 2 player set up of this game fit on a tray table on a plane? Flying from the US to the UK soon so I am looking for options to pass the time and this seems a good one if the footprint isn't too large.

So what do folks with the game think, could this work on a cattle class tray tble?

I don't think so. There are multiple cards stacks and the enemy cards stretch out a ways. Also the game has die rolling; not something you could do on an airline tray.

With a custom, slotted, board, designed to hold the cards in place firmly, maybe. If you're experienced with woodworking, and have a jigsaw on hand, you might be able to rig something up. Otherwise? Probably not. The stacks of cards alone would make for a messy situation. There are travel dice rollers, which you could use... but it'd take some work.

Now, if you were up to making some trays, it might be an option. Still, there's a lot of parts, even in a normal game, and I'd be really worried about loosing pieces.

Unfortunately, I don't think so. Those things are really tiny!!

It might fit in the restroom. You could join the "mile high gaming club".

Defnintely not. I can't even fit it on one "normal" size 1-player LCG playing mat.

I will have to try at home to see, but there might be a way. Between the 2 trays and 2 knees, there might be a possibility to stack some of the cards and keep a certain visibility.

This is how much space it takes when I play solo, and it still gets cramped when the enemies start spawning en masse. So no, it won't fit on a tray table, sorry.

On this setup image, with only 2 players, what if:

- you remove the torch token (we know who is the 1st player each time)
- you make a stack of the 4 action card, tapped if used, untapped if available (that raises an issue with the success tokens though)
- you use a the round life counters from the bgg files section, instead of the hero card with damage tokens on it
- you make a stack of the engaged monsters
- you make a stack of the shadow zone monsters
- you put the discard monsters face up under the monsters deck
- you put the nemesis card over the scenario tile
- you stack the dungeon and equipment decks

I'm out of idea for now, but with some sacrifices on the readability of the board, I think something is possible.

Well, sure. But there are easier ways to entertain oneself on a plane.

I share your point of view, but that's not what Jim asked about

It may be a blasphemous suggestion, but if either of you have a tablet/smart phone (though, tablet is recommended) you could purchase some board game apps.

Small World, Elder Sign and Galaxy Trucker are all pretty good. My partner and I especially enjoyed Small World on a recent trip, very true to the board game.

I usually do, but travelling with family this time and looking for things to entertain more than just me. Already have some games that work, just curious about other options.

Then, I think you basically have an unplayable game. There is too much stacked or hidden information to make correct choices.

Of course you will have to fiddle with these stacks of cards each time you need to assess a situation... But for example, tapping or untapping certain cards in those stacks can help with that.

Amusingly, if we're going that far, I think there actually IS a mobile version of Warhammer Quest (not the ACG, but the original game).

I normally absolutely prefer the cardboard version of most games, but yeah, on a flight is one of the perfect situations for tablet versions. I flew internationally about a month ago and I could not even visualize using the tray for anything but my peanuts, my book, and my Kindle. Plus if you drop a piece....I played a game at the car shop yesterday, but playing anything more than a small card game (like, Pairs) on a flight sounds like a bad experience.
But I played Elder Sign and Sentinels of the Multiverse (and, yes, candy crush saga) a lot.

Board game rule books are not long enough.



I know this is tongue in check, but I have lots of long rulebooks.


Or bring two.


Some old wargames like Central America have rulebooks that are actually interesting to read and study all on their own. It even has three books....
