Ipad only board games....
I gotta admit, it's getting a bit more tempting to get an Ipad for iOS boardgaming. While I have anRecommend
Ipod Touch 4Ipod Touch 5, there are many games that are Ipad only However, when one also has semi-regular gaming sessions, a perfectly fine Nintendo Wii, TV online, many unplayed PC games, and still many unplayed IpT games, the age old question of "where does one find the time?" is a very serious one indeed. If that isn't enough, the Ipad's $600+$330 to $360+ price tag **, on average double price tag for Ipad version of games*, and the fact that it's a bigger hassle to have with me all the time due to the thing not fitting in my pocket are sufficient enough reasons for me to wave the hand and scoff in the end.
Still, I can't help but notice that the library of Ipad only games growing. For this geeklist, name such titles. I'll try to sort them manually by release date for 'kicks and giggles', but I'd reckon that'll be forever an ongoing process. Ipad only games that are scheduled or have word of coming out are OK. Just try to post a link to where you heard the news. However, if an Ipad only game gets released to Iph/IpT, it'll get deleted.
* a bit of a head scratcher, as this GL talks about apps that have NO Iphone OS counterpart, so it would be a moot issue. However, I believe there's still the practice of charging more for Ipad apps than its theoretical Iphone OS version, so in this regard, the point still stands.
** A new Ipad 2 can be had for $360 (lowest spec-ed model of course), while the new Ipad Mini is out for $330. However, some of us really do need to consider if the cost is really worth the benefits.
#2 - Ticket To Ride 1910 is removed... Ticket To Ride Pocket v1.20 allows you to purchase 1910 via IAP.
#2 - Ticket To Ride Europe is removed... Ticket To Ride Europe Pocket has been released
#3 - Ticket To Ride Switzerland is removed... Upon Ticket To Ride Europe Pocket's initial release, you can purchase Ticket To Ride Swizterland as an IAP
UPDATE as of 12/10/2015... IIRC TtR Europe Pocket is no longer around. It's not consolidated into some universal TtR app. It also replaces TtR Pocket IIRC? Maybe this'll shed some light on that...
#4 (after Cyclades) - Scotland Yard is removed. Scotland Yard is another implementation, and also supports Iphone. On my IpT4 (with Retina) it's still quite playable, although I reckon it'd much better on and Ipad, and much worse without Retina display (Iph3gs or before, IpT3 or before)
FWIW, Detective's Chase is probably still around at the free to $1 range for Ipad.
#5 Kingdom Builder is now for Iphone/Ipod Touch. Also supports the 4" screens.
#6 Pandemic is now universal. Used to be between Eclipse and Space Hulk (3rd Edition) and
#7 Qin is now universal (well I'll be dipped... they did it!). Used to be between Thunderstone and Dominant Species
