Wondering if I should save the money and just get the app instead of the actual game? Anyone play them both... how’s app compare to the board game?
They are two very different games.
The App is fairly fun as a lite digital RPG/ puzzle board game, but does not, in any way, replace the physical game in my opinion. It's pretty well designed for what it is, but it's going to railroad the story for you and often limit your options.
The physical game, is more fun with at least 2-3 players, but can bog down with 5-6, and, while technically soloable, gets a little samey without other players to riff off of.
I like getting a few other folks together to play the table top game(s) (I like both of the current settings and am looking forward to the third), and would not be willing to trade that social experience for the digital game. However, the App is pretty good solo when I want to waste 30 or so minutes.
But yeah, they are just different. The App is faster and easier to pick up and put down, but the flexibility of the table top game and the social elements make it superior in my opinion.
