The extraordinary designs and original ideas of the iOS board games will never stop amazing us. Our digital age is rich with the new adaptation of the timeless board games’ classic charm. The simple rolling of the dice and moving the pawns is now in the graveyard. You can forget about storing whole walls full of board games that are collecting dust. Now is the time of the outstanding iOS board games with enjoyable strategic manoeuvring. We have collected the 5 most essential, must-play games for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and here is our list:
Pandemic is a delightful popular board game in which you need to have 1 to 4 people to work together and save the Earth from a 4 deadly diseases that are spreading across the whole world. At the beginning of the game you can take one of a 7 roles (scientist, specialist, etc.) Each role have special powers for beating the disease and you have 4 attempts to cure it and to save the world. The game is relatively tense and you need to share your iPad with your team, so if one of you loses – you all lose, and nobody can gloat.
Suburbia is the most productive and selfless board game for iOS users. This game can accurately be described as the next Sim City. In this game you can take control of an unnamed city and build it with attractive and profitable buildings. You can play with your friends in the multiplayer mode and together build the city of the future.
The essential thing in this iOS game which you need to indulge in, is assembling a vessel that is completely worthy and competitive in the game. Also you can use various component tiles like laser guns, engines, crew pods etc. Galaxy Trucker has distinct appeal because there are components with complicated array of connectors that need to be matched perfectly, and your rivals are always going after the tiles you need to make your spaceship work. After you build your ships you can go into space and see how you can survive in the wild galaxy where any number of unexpected things will happen. It is a very challenging game and we are definitely recommending it.
A word of precaution here: Lords of Waterdeep is not another classic “Dungeons & Dragons” game, it is an abstract game with modern RPG elements combined into one classic board game layout. In this game you have a definite number of workers (“agents”) which you can place them in various action spaces on the board to recruit heroes. Here you do not collect elixir and wood, but warriors and wizards. Every player is a hero who gather victory point bonuses as the result of achieved quests. You win when you got the most victory points by the end of 8 turns. The game requires a little imagination, and whether you get addicted or not, it’s still a very sufficient game.
This game is one of the few games for the iOS users where you get unlimited access for free. Summoner Wars is an exciting card game of eccentric battlefield combat where you can use deck of cards to make tactics and control the army. You need to create walls of stone for protection and to fight against the enemies using different strategies.
That was our choice, but we’re eager to hear about yours. What board games are you digging on currently in your iPhone? Leave us a passing by comment…
