iOS Game Reviews

iPad Board Gaming, Late 2013 edition

by Ken Newquist / December 9, 2013

One of the things I love most about the iPad is how many board games have made it to the iOS platform. Classics like Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, and Settlers of Catan blazed the trail, but now we're seeing another wave of releases with games like Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy and Lords of Waterdeep. Here are some of the games I've come across recently, but I'm always looking for more. Add your own as a comment or email me at nuketown@gmail.com.
