    I think that says enough. I just realized how great it is for decklists and such. everyone that doesn't have it should get it and try it out, at least once.


    just some frendly advice.:{ )

    dammit. you can't change the title of the post. oh well.

    It's pretty small and it's free, but I just don't like it. As soon as I get my Cable Modem connection back I'm going to try lots of people to play w/ Encyclopedia - I like the purdy pictures! [IMG]


    "...tapping just looks nicer that way..."
  4. Spidermage New Member

    I agree with Ferret. The pics are nice. Besides, the few times I've tried apprentice I found that I needed an issue of Inquest on hand to look up cards, which got my opponents upset because it was taking me too long to play. Now if I can just find people at the WotC matching server that play decks on the same level as my Pestilence Multiplier or Kobold decks... :)

    Since I won't be posting all that often, just think of me as the Hidden Spider :)

    Hidden, you don't need an inquest to figure out what the cards do. In apprentice you can just move the mouse over a card and leave it for a moment and a description will pop up. That being said I agree that apprentice isn't great for playing against people although I do like it for test draws.

    spart, you little fart,
    what do you expect?
    the program is free,
    you won't get all wet.

    If price isn't a concern,
    I'd have all the cards,
    not missing one,
    but since I don't
    free's great to have fun.

    I don't care what anyone says apprentice is a great program. It being free just makes it better.

    sorcerer, do you have icq? I'm trying to get a list of people to play on app. with using icq.
    what's your number?

    Appropriatly brave,
    Displayed his lack of wisdom
    and charged into my cave.

    He challanged me to battle,
    In moments it was through.
    He made a tasty morsel-
    His horse was tasty, too.

    Hey Orgg! I have Apprentice finally. We have to play sometime.
  10. TomB Administrative Assistant

    I got it too, and Orgg, you're right! Apprentice DOES rock! I don't have ICQ, though I'm planning on going there next, but maybe I'll see you on the chat page. I probably won't be on till after midnight though...

    Damn, did that file take a while to download!

    Hi, i'm a new CPA member(see the new members area), and I already have Apprentice. But. Is there any way to play against a computer? My ICQ is 6268181.

    arhar, Welcome aboard! :D

    Near as I can tell, there is no AI to play against in Apprentice, though you can use it to do the goldfish method by choosing the solitaire mode. Personally I've always thought it was better to practice against real opponents though, if you're serious about getting better, and I've only once been unable to find a game by going to http://www.planeswalker.com/

    Just click on IRC and Web Chat, then choose the Web Chat option. You'll find an opponent there in no time. Hook up after midnight and you might even find yourself playing me! ;)

    apprintice is a simple program designed to allow people to play over the internet.
    adding an artificial intellegence to the program would cause it to be mutch larger.

    If you have to play only yourself, open the program twice(open it, downsize it, then open it with the shortcut again).
    this method will somtimes turn the two decks you open into the same(a nasty glitch), but the actual decks saved are unaltered.

    another great place to play games is by having a few people to play with on icq.
