Unplayable. Really.

Post by Zhuangzi »

So many cards, especially using the expansions, have complex info accessable only via 'hover' - the same is true for Goals.
But on my ipad I cannot see any of this. It essentially makes the game impossible to play. (Actually, it just makes it unwinnable: i'm still playing, but like a blind man in a small passageway with sharp-edged walls.)

Surely many of us often play on our pads/tablets? Is it realy so difficult to change things so we can use the info-accessing capabilities of hover? (Perhaps it is, but then i don't think this site should claim it can be used on tablets.)

I've been playing my android phone and I can 'hover' by pressing a card and holding. The info bubble shows up and I can release. Tap it again and it's gone.

On iPhone I find a double tap-hold brings up the card text. Might be same on iPad. If really in doubt, and you can be bothered, Google image search the card in question.

Thanks. iPad seems different. Will keep experimenting.

I'll chime in and agree it's a bit hard to play on my iPhone. The hover information sometimes appears (usually if it's the first card I tap on after the page loads) but it's not reliable, and the same tap might just as easily play the card, sometimes with no possible undo (eg. a placing a military world). At other times, a single tap won't trigger a card and I've found a two-finger tap is required to activate a card/phase.

In this day and age, I'm quite surprised mobile accessibility isn't a higher priority, to be honest!
