Hey! Thanks for the reviews! I'm glad you're enjoying it so far!
To address your cons:
1. Yep, that's been addressed in recent beta builds I believe. Thanks for the report!
2. Any repetition is just in the interest of making sure nobody gets left behind or confused by the story! Especially since sometimes people put the game down then come back to it-- I'd hate for them to be lost!
3. It's a little tricky! Generally speaking, you win by playing as many right-side-up cards as possible as quickly as possible, and all the tips you need are in the tutorials, which should be read carefully (and conveniently can be re-accessed via the pause menu!) Alternatively, there is also the 'Rebalanced' difficulty that makes combat a little easier! I am thinking about putting in some animated examples in the future to be a little more clear, though the updated demo that I brought to conventions has been pretty effective at being less confusing haha
Thanks for the playthrough too! Will have to check it out sometime
