Royal Bonus DIGITAL available as part of Android/PC Humble Bundle Tue, 23 September 2014 21:22
From https://www.humblebundle.com/

Quote:

Note: This bundle also includes the Royal Bonus DLC, previously only available to Kickstarter backers. DLC features three new Small World Races and three Special Powers. Royal Bonus races include Fauns, Igors and a new favorite – the impregnable forest dwellers known as Shrubmen! Special Powers are Aquatic, Behemoths (don't let them get settled in the swamps), and a magical Fireball.

DLC redemption requires a Days of Wonder account and activation through their website. In-app purchases will be directed to and purchased from the Days of Wonder website.


I'm happily surprised there's going to be some way to get the RB in digital form as I thought that ship had sailed because of various app store restrictions. Would be nice if I could get it for iOS as well.

Actually, since the activation of the Royal Bonus is tied to your Days of Wonder account, you absolutely can buy the Humble Bundle, get the Royal Bonus unlock key from there, and enter it in your DOW account (you will find instructions on your redemption page on the HB site).

After that, start your iPad version, go to the Online Arena to force a connection to your DOW account, and this will unlock the Royal Bonus. As long as you use the same DOW account everywhere, it will work.

And of course, you get the Steam versions (Mac+PC+Linux) and the Android version on top of that. And the many other games of the Bundle.

Ah, very interesting, Yann! I was still in the frame of mind of thinking how the regular expansions work. Forgot that the Royal Bonus was a bit anomalous in that regard. Thanks!

And how about the other DLC? I bought all three DLC on steam.
Could i play them on Humble Bundle Android version or DRM-free version?
Or i just must buy again on your site?

So is there, or will there in the future, be a way to just pay for the royal bonus key directly instead of as part of a larger deal? I don't really have an interest in the other games in the bundle, and already have the ios small world 2 so was hoping it would be possible to 'upgrade' that.

The other expansions are purely a per-OS purchase. Meaning if you buy it for iOS, you can use it on any iOS device linked to that iTunes account but not Steam or Android, etc.

I was told it had something to do with app store restrictions. I think if they did it that way, they wouldn't be allowed to sell it AT ALL inside the app. Every person who buys the expansions would then have to know to go to the website (the app also can't send them to the website to purchase things). I think they'd lose so much in sales that it wouldn't be worth it anymore.

At least, that's an outsider's understanding of it. I think they only did it with the Royal Bonus because it was a KS reward. It would be nice if there was some way to buy JUST the RB on the DoW site and have it activated for your account. Who knows, maybe they're working on it. But I can understand why they wouldn't do that for all of them.

Is there any way to play with RB offline on Android at all? It disappears unless I'm logged into my DoW account which isn't possible with my wifi only Nexus 7 while out and about.

EDIT: Forget what I just wrote. Using the Humble version of the app keeps the RB unlocked. I was still using the Google Play version.

I know the DLC from "google play" or "iOS" version can't cross platform. But i mean the "Humble Bundle" or "DRM-free" version. The DLC of the "Humble Bundle" or "DRM-free" version is linked to DoW site to unlock. So they can let them cross-platform. Just like Ticket to Ride "Humble Bundle" version.

It's unclear what you're asking/saying.

But let me just repeat: you can't buy the Royal Bonus in-app. This is because they went cross-platform with it (at least my understanding). If they were to sell the others cross-platform, they would not be able to sell them in the app itself. This would probably vastly cut down on sales and make the expansions not economically viable for them to produce.

Again, all my reading of the situation. DoW please feel free to correct.

Yes, they can't sell "google play", "iOS" or "steam" DLC on their site. But they can let the "steam" DLC or more unlock on their site. If you had "Humble Bundle: PC and Android 7" and bought all Ticket to Ride DLC on steam, you will know what i said.

I bought Royal Bonus at Humble Bundle.
But I saw it early (before HB sale) some times in games that was created by other players. It interesting - where do they get this addon?

They backed the project on Kick-starter. People who did that got the expansion.
