Golem Arcana offers a whole new way to play tabletop games by harnessing the power of your smartphone or tablet. As you play, the app serves as a sort of referee and rulebook, freeing up the players to concentrate on devising strategies to crush their enemies and give grief to their friends on the other side of the table. Thus, Golem Arcana combines the tactile fun of a tabletop game with the accessibility of an online game. It’s the best of both worlds, offering up a unique experience that neither could deliver on its own.
The key to the game’s seamless connection between the tabletop and your mobile device is the Bluetooth-powered Tabletop Digital Interface (TDI) Stylus. You can tap any of the game pieces with the stylus to send information to the Golem Arcana app running on your smartphone or tablet. The app adjudicates the game, helps the players understand the rules, manages record keeping, and provides the kind of dynamically evolving gameplay previously found only in Internet games.
