  2. Hi Andrew101, I don't know exactly because I have never played 1989. However, one reason I like TS is that Steam has a digital version that allows me to play TS around the world with people. I don't have to have a face-to-face game. If you have access to a group or a friend who likes board games and will play face-to-fave games, then you might want to get 1989, especially if you think the price is better. But if you don't, you may want to think about a digital game of TS on Steam. You may also want to check out the reviews on Dice Tower by Tom Vassal because he has reviewed both of them. Also, I would think that you can find other reviews on youtube. 1989 is also by GMT, and I think most of their games are quality. Personally, I like the global aspect of TS and the sudden death of a possible nuclear war. 1989 was also a special moment in history, but I know that I am more likely to play TS. I hope this helps.
  3. I know that TS have been number one for a long time and 1989 is right now ~600 on bgg. Is Twilight Struggle really superior mechanically or it's just the theme that is more popular because more people know about the cold war? I'm from Poland so the theme of 1989 is much closer to me, and also the game is 3-5 times cheaper. Would I miss out much by buying 1989 instead of TS?
  4. Recently read a book Angel Valley Labyrinth stating their is a connection to some labyrinths having a fingerprint pointing toward the gods. Does anyone think the movie has any deep roots as well?

  6. The DLC expansions that I bought for the steam version of ascension a few months ago can't be used in the game. The DLC sets have the lock symbol as if I didn't own them already, and trying to add one to the game sends me to the screen where you can view or buy cards. How can I regain access to the expansions I own?
  7. Played last night. The "Iran" card seems broken.
  8. Hi, a couple days ago I bought Lords of waterdeep on steam and android, I still haven't received the email with the activation instructions for the online account, so I can't play online multiplayer. I've written twice to support@playdekgames.com but I haven't received any answers, can anybody help me?
  9. The computer player doesn't seem to understand the concept of winning by Europe control. Even when I control all the battleground countries in Europe AND AI player has the Europe scoring card, it doesn't attempt to fight the imminent loss, instead doing minor plays around the world. This is a major bug in singleplayer and needs to be fixed, IMO.
  10. The app won't let me disable email and android notifications. In my profile page I select the Notifications button. I deselect both 'Email Notifications' and 'Android Notifications' and then click the 'Close' button. However, when I re-click the Notifications button both notification options have been re-enabled. I am still receiving notifications and cannot turn them off.
  11. I have a problem in one of my games. I am USA, the opponent had played North Sea Oil on me. I had played Quagmire on myself on AR7. I have one card which I am able to discard to Quagmire but I don't want to do this on my AR8. I want to skip the optional AR8, save the card for the next Turn, and then start discarding cards from AR1 of the next Turn. I can't see any pass button when I receive a prompt to drag and drop a card to discard. How can I skip my AR8 in such a case? It's an async game and I have about 2 weeks on my clock left.
  12. After an early turn in the game, my option for Space Race just disappeared. Realignment, Event, Place Influence, and Coup were all available, but never Space Race throughout multiple turns. I played as USSR and before the space race option disappeared for me, I had played "Defectors" as a headline card. I didn't think it would allow me to do this, but it worked. I wonder if this triggered a bug? The game number I was playing was #1277878. I tried to access Space Race on multiple turns, at various times during the turn, but it was never even given as an option. Please fix!? Thanks so much, RBGriffin
  13. What a load of crap. AI used Wargames to make the score ZERO, and then it decides that I've lost??? This is SIGNIFICANTLY more frustrating than a draw. Gweiss @Playdeck I find you extremely arrogant and condescending when you say "If you're trying to convince me that what most board gamers want is to end in a tie after investing 2 hours to a game (or several weeks if played async), I'd say you're wrong. But that irrelevant here. " I've spent MONTHS keeping a perfect score on my profile, only to be defeated by your crappy programming and extremely poor reasoning. I think most board gamers want the rules correctly implemented and if the game is meant to have the strategic consideration of forcing a tie, then you should put it in there. All a tie means after hours of play is you were equally matched/equally well played. Not a problem. Have you ever heard of a little game called Chess?
  14. It looks like the game does enforce the rule (unless my opponent didn't try it because he knew it wasn't legal). Situation: Entering turn 10, US is at 19 VP. The US hand is a bunch of horrible USSR events and Reagan Bombs Libya. Libya influence is 0:4. USSR headlines ABM Treaty which gives 4 Ops. Had realigning himself out of Libya been a legal move, it would've been his only hope. Good thing he kicked me out of there earlier in the game!
  15. According to the player aid and official FAQ, but not the rulebook (unless I missed it), you can't target a country for realignment unless it contains your opponent's influence. Can anyone verify that the digital version of the game enforces this rule? It may seem like an odd question, but the answer could very well decide the outcome of my current game! (I'll explain after it's done.)

    Game Log

    I would LOVE the option of saving the game log. Or at least not having it instantly disappear when the game ends!
  17. I have completed the in game "Oracle achievement" twice but it has not unlocked.. Happy to provide images proving this if that helps
  18. It seems that I am occasionally still getting emails, but they are very late, and not every time. When I do get one, they are usually for the round prior to the one we're playing currently. Does the time it waits to email have anything to do with the time limit we set for the game (since we're on a 45-day game)? Like it doesn't bother until it's been your turn for a certain amount of time?
  19. Whenever I try to open the game, it crashes and generates a report (attached). I even tried reinstalling the game and nothing changed. crash.dmp error.log
  20. Now it seems to be emailing me. This is after I created an account here with the same info - but they don't seem to be linked, so I don't know if that's a coincidence. I'll see if it continues to email me now. So I got an email for turn 1, and I was online for turn 2. But I went offline after that, and turn three happened 2 hours later while I was still offline, but I waited overnight and it didn't email me for my turn. I guess it's random, which basically means it's useless. Is this usual?
  21. Just bought and installed Waterdeep. Game seems to function fine, but playing an online turn-based game, it's not emailing me when it's my turn. It is emailing the other two players. Suggestions?
