Skull & Shackles etc. on Android?


Pathfinder Adventure Card Game General Discussion


I'm an avid fan of the PACG and have complete sets of RotR, S&S and WotR (have not bought Mummy's Mask yet).

I get great enjoyment out of playing these games and since getting a new smartphone in September, have also enjoyed playing RotR on that as well.

Not sure if this has been raised before, but does anybody have any idea if S&S and subsequent adventure paths will also get the digital treatment?

If it is economically viable, yes. If not, no...

The programming has proken to be much more harder than the developers ever imagined, and that makes the RotR very expensive game. That Also means that S&S will Also be very expensive game to make in digital format and that is bad, because it makes it more unlikely.

But if RotR will eventually pring profit, who knows.


I'm not sure if S&S will ever introduced to the android app, but if yes, then still you have to wat for it for quite a bit.

The current plan seems to be :
- RotR 6 (mentioned to be this year)
- resolving/reworking quest mode
- multiplayer
- Steam release

And we also get goblins somewhere added too as characters.

After the above it's anybody's guess which AP they will choose, and how long it will take them to implement.


Honestly I'm bot even holding my breath. I love the game but it's seeming to be way more work than anyone expected. And honestly it looks like the money just isn't really there. But hey I'd love to see it happen either way.


Based on a recent post from a Dev, PC release + multi-platform support comes before multiplayer.

They have no futher plans already estabilished, so for me that means there is no work started on a 2nd set or anything else new.


You have to consider that many cards in PACG "break" the rules (eg - this card or ability allows you to do something you normally couldn't do); and each core set tries to do something different - Ships, Cohorts, and Curses are just the biggest changes - all of which means coding up exceptions to the standard use cases. Hopefully there's room in the core engine to accommodate the changes easily once all the bugs are squashed.

I truly hope so. After all, at the pace they're putting things out, it seems likely that they structured things after S&S came out. They had some idea what they were getting into.

Liberty's Edge

I recently discovered the Android app and love it. I hope they expand on it. I have been having a lot of fun.

For whatever reason, I have been soloing only with one character whenever I play.

In just a couple of days, I already have Lini in the 4-*** zone. She is definitely an awesome soloer. Being able to add 1d4+4 to any check at all AND being able to heal makes her pretty invulnerable. She never dies, only sometimes fails to fulfill the mission.

Next I have a solo Merisiel. She is really good in all combats. As far as skill checks go, sometimes she suffers.

Finally, I have a solo Seoni. She is definitely the weakest of the three characters as far as soloing goes, as she seems to go through cards too quickly. Still, I am having fun.

Keep up the good work Paizo/Obsidian and I hope to see more.

I remember at the 2014 Gen Con card game seminar, when Skull&Shackles was the new hotness, Vic offhandedly mentioned the issues the Obsidian team might have with a mechanic from Season of the Shackles(villain in the blessings deck). So things like S&S and the Seasons are certainly something the developers were aware of well before the app came out.
