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)

GenCon Grassroots News: Day 1 (Thursday)

Consequential Demos at Asmadi Games Booth 1033
Chris Cieslik posted on Twitter that he is demoing the new digital/physical role playing game Consequential at his booth all weekend. In the game players play through a story and each week digitally receive updates to the story. This sort of delivery of content seems really interesting. Stop by and check it out if you have a chance.

Zombicide Companion App coming for iOS and Android
@MajMalfunction letsus know about this upcoming companion app for Zombicide. This game was a wild kickstarter success and this will certainly be welcome by supporters of the game. We will contact the makers of Zombicide to get more details about the features of this companion app.

Ascension: Immortal Heroes to arrive on iOS in 3 to 5 months
@Gretyl reports that Gary Games is expecting their latest expansion, Immortal Heroes available on iOS in the next few months. They are reported as saying it will be done in the “normal turn-around time.” Ascension fans can look forward to even more cards in the near future.

SolForge Playable Demo at Gary Games Booth
@Gretyl also reports that SolForge is available to demo at the Gary Games booth. SolForge is the latest project from Gary Games and is currently on Kickstarter. They have a lofty goal of $250k but it appears donation are coming in steadily. If you do try this out, please send impressions. I will be trying out the demo later this month at PAX Prime. Head over to the Kickstarter page for more details.

Can’t Stop Demo
Gary Weis of Playdek emailed to say that Eric Martin caught them doing a demo of Can’t Stop at the Gryphon games booth. Sadly BGG does yet have their camera equipment on site and so we don’t have any top secret video. It is great to hear that the game is already at a playable point.

CutThroat Caverns demo
Gary Weis of Playdek also pointed out that the developers of the Cutthroat Caverns app are not yet on site but will be later on. If anyone swings by today and sees the demo, let us know!
