There are quite a number of iPad GeekLists already. This one is a list of BGG games that are available for the iPad right now and can support multiple human players either locally or online, in real time or asynchronously. I invite others to add to this list by posting the iTunes URL:

Unless otherwise noted, all apps are officially licensed versions.


------------------------------------------------------------------
Information Key
------------------------------------------------------------------
Game Picture: Will be iPad or iPhone/iPod Touch* version if available.

Clones: Games in the public domain (like Go, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon etc.) not under any particular copyright license usually have many clone versions available. This list shows only one entry for such games with a link to a separate Geeklist for those games.

Human Players: The number of human players the app can support. Including "1" indicates AI or solitaire is available.

Connection: The type of connection(s) supported between players.

Face to Face = players gather around iPad
Console Mode = I.e. main game runs on iPad and iPhones used for hidden info or controllers, effectively making the iPad a console unit
Pass n' Play = players take turns and pass device. Also known as "hot seat".
WiFi = players use multiple devices lan-style over local WiFi network
BlueTooth = players use multiple devices lan-style over BlueTooth network
Online Realtime = players play against online opponents
Online Asynchronous = players play against online opponents, taking their turn on their own time often after message notification (like play-by-email)

Seller/Developer Site: Seller or Developer Web site with more info

iTunes: The iTunes App Store URL

iPhone/iPod Touch: Indicates whether the game is also playable on the iPhone/iPod Touch, there is an iPhone/iPod Touch version, or whether app is a single Universal app which works on both devices.

No = iPad only
Yes = separate iPhone/iPod Touch app available
Universal = single app, works on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch

Release, update, price tracking info on Appshopper.com: A link to the game on Appshopper.com, a great site for tracking app updates and prices.

VGG: A link to the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad app version on VGG, if available.

*Note: All iPhone/iPod Touch apps run on the iPad.



------------------------------------------------------------------
Adding an Entry
------------------------------------------------------------------
Feel free to add an entry that meets the following conditions:

Post only the iTunes URL.
Only add an iPad board game if it is available NOW.
Only add an iPad board game if one of its multi-player modes can support 2 or more players in the same place on the same device.
Once you add a valid entry I will probably tip you 1 for your troubles and then delete and repost your entry with more complete information.
