Today we're releasing Conclave's first desktop client as a public beta! You can download it from the new Downloads page:https://www.playconclave.com/downloads
Playing through the client should be almost identical to playing through your browser. If anything, it should be a smidgen faster.
We've tested the client on Windows 7 and 8. In theory it should work just fine on Vista as well, though we haven't been able to test there yet. If you're using Vista, please give it a shot and let us know how it goes.
If you encounter any glitches or have suggestions, post a comment here or in the Issues forum
. We've tested the core of the client extensively, but since this is our first desktop release, no doubt there will be things we've overlooked. Assuming all goes well, we should have Mac and Linux versions ready for beta in the next few weeks as well.
