And it was amazing! I soloed 4 heroes I’ve never gotten the chance to play. The setup is quicker and the rules are polished. I can’t wait to start the campaign. What are your guys’ thoughts? Did you like the tutorial?

I played through the tutorial this evening and it was actually my first ever game as well. Easy to follow and can't wait to get started on the campaign. My poor wallet is going to take a beating over this game.

Does the tutorial teach the game rules? Been playing a lot of Road to Legend so I can use the help!...

Is the app always reliant upon an internet connection?

Can it work from start to finish after installation without needing to connect to the net?

It asks you if you’ve ever played IA before. I chose yes, so I don’t know if it’ll explain it if you choose no.

I don’t know why it wouldn’t work w/o a connection. You should be good.

I played through the tutorial and 1 mission of the campaign... pretty cool surprises and chances to act beyond combat that makes it feel almost RPGish. Really enjoyed it. Im soloing 4 heroes and it might be to much to administrate. I wonder how would it scale with 2 heroes.

Yeah, one of my favorite things is the new attribute testing. I just love it.

I guess I'll have to try it with 4 heroes. It was a bit less overwhelming with 2, but 4 is my next attempt...

I'm wondering how it would work with 2 heroes as well. I want to play it with my son and I think it would be easiest for him to grasp if we just controlled one hero each.

Can someone give me an estimate about the lengte of the tutorial? I have 2 friends coming over tonight that never played and they are willing to try if it is not a complete evening.

Yes it does. Well, maybe not every little detail, but it does explain movement, line of sight, combat, special abilities etc.
I never played Imperial Assault before (but tons of Descent with the App) and it was enough.

I'm absolutely loving the app! I did a solo (4 hero) run through the first campaign mission earlier on and enjoyed every last second. My lips will remain tightly sealed to avoid spoilers.
You're going to love it.

I just bought SW:IA at B&N on sale last weekend, and I have been reading through the tutorial booklet. Is it recommended to play the tutorial from the booklet before doing a solo tutorial via the new app? Or, will the app’s tutorial also help me to understand the basics of the game?

I would read the learn to play guide but the app tutorial does walk you through most aspects of the game.

I am excited to hear all these positive reviews. My family mostly played skirmish because the campaign just didn't fit with us at the time and we were running Descent game. This sounds like it would be great for us. I am coming home on leave from Korea and if it works I might take my IA stuff back to Korea so I can keep playing Solo.

It's amazing I just finished the campaign. Also, skirmish is even better now that they got "fixes" for Han, Chewie, Vader, and IG88 so far so they are amazing
