Cephalofair & Lucky Duck Partner on Companion Apps

May 12th, 2022, 11:00am PST

For Immediate Release

Cephalofair Games is incredibly pleased to announce a new partnership with Lucky Duck Games to develop companion apps for our games Frosthaven and Gloomhaven.

Bringing a wealth of experience from the video game industry, the leadership team at Lucky Duck Games have spent the last five years truly innovating how apps can be integrated into and improve the board game experience and have produced a line of digital-hybrid games such as Chronicles of CrimeDestinies, and most recently their successfully funded project The Dark Quarter in collaboration with Van Ryder Games.

While companion apps are not required for the Gloomhaven & Frosthaven game systems, the goal will be to streamline the combat process as much as possible so that players can spend as little time in game upkeep and as much time as possible engaged in the world of Frosthaven. After the Frosthaven app is released, the partners will also take on the tasks of reimagining a Gloomhaven companion app, to bring everything under one roof as well as to improve the gaming experience for Gloomhaven players. 

"One of their core tenants is that app-assisted games should bring people together, not isolate them on their phones, and so we are very excited to see what innovation they will bring to the Frosthaven app in terms of UI and functionality!" - Isaac Childres, CEO, Cephalofair Games

"Lucky Duck Games has a proven track record of quality, success, and innovation in the tabletop industry and we're honored to have their assistance building tools that our ever-growing community can enjoy and rely on for years to come." - Price Johnson, COO, Cephalofair Games

The offering of the official app so far is not worth the $12 I had to pay for it. Much much less functionality compared to other fan made free offerings currently available. For the money I had to pay I expect the levels of functionality of free offerings out there as well as campaign tracking, Forteller integration and even a mood music playlist. Definitely disappointed in my purchase.

Will the app be able to track your party as they campaign? By far the best app I have used is Gloomhaven Campaign Tracker by Grzegorz Dziembowski. I am able to track items, equipment, donations, unlocked scenarios, etc. This greatly enhanced my experience playing Gloomhaven and I’m hoping for something similar for Frosthaven.
