What's going on down there?
WORK IN PROGRESS
This is a GeekList of Android versions of actual board games, that is board games that have an entry in BGG / are in the BGG database.
If in doubt it probably belongs on the Games for Android devices list.
Coming Android Board games releases should be added here: Board Games Coming to Android
To find the apps listed below a smart place to start is Google Play
You'll sometimes see QR codes likes this one:
You can use a barcode scanner to read this image and it will translate into a link and take you directly to the app in question. Try it out on the QR code listed here, should take you to the BGG main page.
Most handsets include a barcode reader from start, otherwise get one here.
RULES FOR THIS LIST
1) Only add released official versions of board games or games that are extremely similar to an actual board game.
2) Do not list helpers and similar programs. Those along with other cool Android games should be added here: Games for Android devices
3) Coming Android board games releases should be added here: Board Games Coming to Android
Hope it's ok to post this, since it's not official...
Anyway I think we've all bumped into HeroQuest clones and wannabes sometime/somewhere, so I thought we could share some links.
Today I found two:

This one is quite interesting, and very faithful to the original, even if some liberties have been taken. It even links itself to a couple of HeroQuest fan website. Didn't play much yet, but it seems to be based on custom quests and features a couple of custom items and spells as well.

More of a re-imagining of the game. It draws inspiration from it, but makes it more like the single player mobile game it is. Nice graphics.
There is also another one, which I don't remember, but I have it in my tablet back home. It features graphics from RPGMaker, but otherwise it is almost a digital verbatim copy of the boardgame.
This one is currently $.99.
Works pretty well, there is even a solo version and a tournament version as well as multiplayer. You have to pass the phone back and forth on multi player.
Board Game: Iowa
[Average Rating:7.00 Unranked]
In Iowa, players must plant, grow, harvest, trade and cook corn in order to create a successful farm. But nature will not nurture, and you will have to contend with weather conditions that get harsher and harsher as you approach winter.
While still working with a Brazilian publisher for the release of this boardgame, we have released the Android version of it in two flavours, free and paid:
Free, which contains a single-player edition of the game, so that you can get a feel for and evaluate the gameplay: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kansaigame...
Paid ($2.99), which contains AI opponents, Pass n' Play for up to 4 Players, Asynchronous Online Multiplayer, Achievements, Leaderboards and more: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kansaigame...
Give it a go and let us know what you think!
Constrain is an abstract game very heavily based on Kamisado, with a couple important differences: upgraded pieces gain more axes of motion, and the color layout on the board is a bit different. And winner plays first on the next round.
The AI is a bit weak, but it does beat me sometimes on hard. It should be adequate unless you're a fairly strong Kamisado player to begin with.
