iPhone Board Games
- Alexander ZhangUnited States
With the coming of the iPhone and iPad also came a surge of gaming opportunities. First with online web apps and now with an SDK to allow true app development, its internet interface allows a wide variety of gaming opportunities.
This list is also dedicated to encouraging new development of future games, hopefully of the multi-player networked variety. What will not be included are apps which require breaking ("jailbreaking") of iPhones.
What I would like to see: More board game implementations, especially Euros. Now that Germany, France and the UK are getting iDevices, I'm hoping we won't have to wait too much longer. Above all, less 1-player games and more multi-player network games. (I thinking of live and move-by-move gameplay with my friends in other parts of the world.)
Since there are hundreds of thousands of iPhone apps in the AppStore (and who knows how many webapps), this is by no means an attempt to document them all - just a mention or tip of the hat to the cream of the crop and the rare solo attempts.
If you didn't brick up your iPhone on the last firmware update... if your game table is an iPhone... sit back and enjoy a few board games. Please feel free to add the ones I've missed, comment on ones I've listed and, in general, push the field of mobile gaming forward in a positive manner.
