iOS Board Games

Among the best things in life is playing printed games in person with family and close friends. When those are not convenient we like iOS Board Games. News, reviews, previews, and opinions about board gaming on iPhones, iPads, iPods and even Android devices. (iPhone board games, iPad board games, iPod board games, Android board games)

E3 2017 - A Report

This past weekend I attended E3 2017 for the first time as part of my day job. This ever changing convention still holds a place as a focal point for video gaming news. This year marked the re-introduction of the public to the show and in a big way.

Games that fall in our wheelhouse are not as common there, but there were a few gems I found along the way. Overall it was impressive to see the spectacle and gathering of gamers.



It was hard to miss the giant display for Total War Warhammer II. This imposing lizard highlighted the major update here: introduction of new races included Lizard Men, High Elf, Dark Elf, and more. This game is PC only but if your machine can handle it, you should check it out. Honestly, Total War Warhammer captures the classic tabletop minis in a way I didn’t think possible. This new expansion/standalone seems like the perfect addition.



Along these lines, they were also showing off a new edition of Blood Bowl II. I actually don’t know much about this but it looked kinda cool. Moving along…

One surprise was at the new merchandise booth for Square Enix. I was happy to see copies of the Final Fantasy TCG and Chocobo Crystal Hunt at the shop. These are fun translations of the classic video games onto the tabletop. This may be a sign that we’ll see more of these in stores soon. I’ll have a video up on these soon.

While there wasn’t much in the major keynotes on things we follow, Bethesda did have one thing. Elder Scrolls: Legends is a game we haven’t covered too much, but perhaps we’ll dive in soon. It is a collectible game set in the Elder Scrolls universe. The good news that it is coming to iPhone and Android phones next month.



The last thing I was was a bit of a surprise. It looks like The Pillars of the Earth, the property, not the board game, is coming in video game form. If you are a fan of this book, this may be a good game to check out. We’ll provide more details as we have them. The game appears to be pretty story based with beautiful art. It looks slated for PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Mobile.

Here are a few other great photos from the show:

App News: Carcassonne Being Reborn with Asmodee Digital, Predynastic Egypt Released

New Version of Carcassonne Seeks Beta Testers
As a complete surprise to us and everyone else, Asmodee Digital announce on their Twitter that a new version of Carcassonne is in the works.



The beta test is open to Android and Steam only. It appears according to further tweets from Asmodee that The Coding Monkeys retain the iOS rights, so that version is not being touched.

We'll see if we can get a look at this new version and report back here!


Predynstic Egypt Released
This game is not a direct board game port but a strategy game in the same vein as tabletop games we love. Predynastic Egypt appears to be a labor of love. It's a simulation of early Egyptian history and looks fascinating.

If you are into empire builders, this seems like a unique one on iOS and Android.

The 7 Wonders Plot Thickens
As you know, Dave reported last week that a mysterious release date had shown up on the 7 Wonders Facebook page. We weren’t sure what the release date meant, but we hoped it was the digital version of 7 Wonders. As always, Dave tweeted out the news on the iOS Board Games Twitter.

Here’s the tweet:


Something curious: the Repos Productions Twitter account liked the tweet. Now I’m no detective, but that looks like a good sign…or it means nothing.

Cross your fingers!



Images of Scythe Digital
Are you excited for the digital version of Scythe? I know I am. The team seems to be pretty open in sharing each step of the development process. This week the shared a render of one of the mechs. Check it out:



You can see more images on their Twitter account.



Star Realms Gets a Big Update
A new version of the Star Realms app is coming on May 17th. As part of this all current multiplayer games will be wiped, so be sure to finish your games today.

The update is bringing a ton of great things including:
* A sleek new look & feel
* Even easier to play
* New real-time games!

Here is a screenshot of the new look:


This update also includes the Colony Wars expansion for $4.99 IAP. According to the press release this expansion includes:
* 53 All-New Colony Wars cards in the Trade Deck with fun, new mechanics
* Cards that can be purchased from the Trade Row and can immediately be put into play or into a player’s hand.
* Blob faction has a new ability to “acquire a ship of cost x or less for free”.
* The Stealth Tower card that comes with Colony Wars allows you to copy any base in play!
* Two new chapters in the ongoing campaign, each with six missions!
