If you're looking for a pc version of a classic boardgame, you could be dissapointed. Some rules are different and it's buggy. Two biggest bugs turned hours of play into dust.
I've played two games with my friends and after couple of hours both games couldn't be finished because of bugs. In the first game after 3 hours of play one player didn't see any movement (other players could see and play normally), but he could write and read on chat. In the second game I queued a spell before a fight and during the fight (before the spell activated) I checked the same spell card and this card continuusly checked and un-checked itself and nothing could be done except quiting the game. Two games, no end, no experience (gained only after completing a game). It's too buggy for me.
Resuming online games has flaws. First, you can't just resume a game by re-joining it after losing your connection. All players need to quit the game in correct order, because when a player quits, AI plays instead of him (so the last player leaving should be the one, which turn is at the moment). Second, you can only resume last online game. You can't play two different games with two different parties (like playing with friends from work on tuesdays and with friends from neighborhood on sundays) and resume each of them at wish. You can resume only last played game.
Sometimes you get a spell which you can see on the card-you-can-use window, but when you click this spell to read what it does, you see only back of the card.
You can't read cards on the board (monster, shop, fountain etc.) unless your character can move (in your turn) to that place. It's very frustrating when you can remove a card with a spell, but you can't see what cards are there.
When other player browses his spells, you see backs of these spell cards, which are so big, that you can't see the board.
Some cards can't be used at all! Lucky Charm - when you're about to make a roll, discard the charm and choose the result of a die roll. Really? Doesn't work at all! Can't be used during a fight, when you roll for a travel or when you encounter a multiple options card. Potion of Strength - adds 2 strength to all your fights until turn ends. Or not! This card couldn't be used at all! Of course AI character stole it and could use it.
It has many more bugs (most of them with spellcasting or items using), but one of the biggest issue is AI. AI characters aren't great strategists, but they're big cheaters. We played 3 human players against one AI monk and we lost. Why? Because AI character had over 80% of dice rolls in his favour (without re-rolling!). We sent the Reaper to him many times and almost every time he rolled a six, which gave him a +1 bonus to chosen stat. He drew few monsters and almost every draw from adventure deck was a follower, magic object or gold. When AI went finally to the inner region, every roll was in his favour. Playing dice with death, fighting the wolf - first roll and a win. Every (and I mean EVERY) command spell was a success (6, 6, 6, 5, 6, 6).
