You can play Obsidian's Pathfinder Adventures on a PC


Pathfinder Adventure Card Game General Discussion


It's the epitome of an unsupported configuration, but you can use an Android emulator to run Pathfinder Adventures on a PC.

I downloaded bluestacks for free from www.bluestacks.com, installed it, installed Pathfinder Adventures, and played the tutorial and the first three scenarios. The app crashed twice -- not sure if this is due to the application or the emulator.

Another emulator I heard mentioned is Andy.

That it only crashed twice under that chewing-gum-and-baling-wire configuration is a blessed miracle.

As if Angela Merkel ever did anything in a single sentence...


I've been doing this, too, and it's only crashed once in 3-4 hours of play :)

I own the physical game, but an automated gameplay option is fantastic.

I wish I could play it on my Iphone 5...

Only twice? That's considerably better than it's doing on my tablet.

Yeah unfortunately I had to delete it and get a refund on my bundle purchase. My iPad couldn't handle it.

OK, important caveat: bluestacks is not free.

It is free to try. To continue using it you either have to pay $24/year or else try out various apps (I didn't pursue that option).

No idea about Andy.

Same here.


Updating on using bluestacks: When Lini was trying to move from a closed Habe's Sanitorium, the app froze. I killed it, and on restart it was completely confused and showed a screen full of nonsense. No matter how often I restarted, this remained the same.

I reinstalled the app, and lost all my progress.

So, use at your own risk.

I do think that's their plan, but I've no idea when.

If you get into this totally jammed state, someone on the Obsidian forum said you can delete the characters from your party, then rebuild your party from your experienced characters.

I am also curious about this. After Tuesday's blog, I really want to buy the game. But I just decided to buy a house. I can't justify spending $200+ on a tablet for one game.

My game froze when I lost to an Ogre. And it said I had to bury an item or weapon from my discard, but would not let me select anything.

When I restarted, it won't let me select anything, including my discard.

It also doe snot show I bought the season pass for the entire game.


I have two friends who bought the game, one bought the season ($30+?) and another the starter ($6?). Both say it's buggy. I will wait, sounds frustrating.


I've been playing all weekend and have only had the initial gold problem that was due to the game being released before Obsidian expected. Since Friday, I have had no bugs, no crashes, and had tons of fun!


The game runs, but I've run into a bunch of bugs from login issues to cards that don't work properly to a game I had to abandon due to a stuck card. No crashes on my devices, but folks have posted a bunch.

You can try it without spending any money, so you can see how it works on your device(s) if you're interested. I'd wait for an update or two before getting into it seriously, though.

Hopefully the PC version will come out sooner rather than later. :)

For those having problems: make sure you let Obsidian know, either on their forums or via email to support@obsidian.net. (Definitely email them if you bought something and it's not showing up on your account.)


I'm running the game on my phone (LG G3) and the only issue I've run into is the quest mode hanging on the load screen. Otherwise I haven't seen any major issues.

I just bought an Android 9" tablet for $80 just for the game and it works great. I have also seen similar for as little as $55. Some might consider even that too much, though if you already have the game.


Reveal a weapon, x cancel action, and suddenly you revealed weapon is not more in your hand. It is gone.....

Yes. Avoid cancel...

I managed to get that to fix itself most times it happens by going into the vault and then leaving the vault.


playing it on amidious, played for about 12 hours straight accidently. no crashes. a couple graphical bugs from time to time, usually selecting a card from the graveyeard to recharge, it would disappear, but would reappear if you clicked where it was supposed to be.

That's amiduos, for those interested. Cheaper than bluestacks.

Are you running 2.0, or 1.1? I installed 2.0, and it crashed just searching for apps in the playstore.

Those graphics glitches with the card disappearing aren't the emulator. That happens on my tablet, too.


I tried MeMU emulator the day the game came out. It worked well but the sound was terribly static riddled. (I have an i7 and 870M so I'm not underpowered).

Bluestacks plays the game beautifully, but it does crash once in a while, not terribly often, but just enough to be a tad annoying.

The game hasn't given me a single problem on my Nexus 7 2012, so I play it there most of the time.

No problems at all on Nexus 6P, but the panel is a little too small to play it comfortably on that device.

Downloaded Amiduos v2.1.1
Runs bueatifully on my Toshiba satilite pro win7pro 64 bit.
No crashes at all. Makes me look long and hard at upgrading my ipad mini 1st gen which repeatedly drops to the desktop forcing a reload of the app :(

Yep. Happens to spells too on cancel.

Never ever cancel your actions.

The bugs will bite you.

I think it was 2.1. yea mine crashed a few times when searching. I don't remember how I got past it. I think after my wifi got connected it searched fine without crashing.


Anyone know if Quests are working yet?

The first patch hasn't yet been released, so definitely not.

Though some people are having a BLAST playing with only 5 - 10 Blessings in the deck, if they can get past the hanging loading screen.

For the record, I got the game running today on Andy Android Emulator, and it runs perfectly. I'm quite impressed, but then again it is Obsidian we're talking about here. :D

Nothing but love for my friends at Obsidian, but no one would judge you for being impressed that an Obsidian game runs perfectly.

Got tired of the crashing in Bluestacks so I also donwloaded AMIDuOS 2.1.1. Wow.

I've played it all weekend without one hiccup or crash. It looks phenomenal at 3200x1800, and it was super fast after I realized it was using my iGPU instead of the 870M. I forced it over to the 870M and it's been fast and beautiful without one hiccup. Truly amazing.
