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)

Friday Makes Its Way to iOS/Android
Yesterday saw the somewhat surprise release of Friday by Friedemann Friese for both iOS and Android. Brad beat me to the punch and has already posted a First Look video, but I thought I'd mention it for those of you who might not have seen it.

If you're not familiar with Friday, it's a solitaire card game that puts you in the bare feet of shipwreck survivor, Robinson Crusoe. The game uses deck building and a dash of push-your-luck to simulate life on a deserted isle.

Blurb time:

Brettspielwelt wrote:
You are helping Robinson, who came ashore on your island, fight against many hazards. At the beginning, Robinson is not very skillful. With each fight he wins you will improve his abilities, but defeats are also helping to get rid off of his worse habits. However, life on the island is energy-sapping, so that Robinson not only gains experiences during his time there, but also starts aging and tends to get clumsy.

In this game, Robinson is represented as a card stack of different behaviors. You are forced to improve this card stack, so you can collect the cards at the end of the game to give Robinson the best chance to win against the tough pirates!

The App allows you to play the game on all 4 levels and also includes a new fifth level as special challenge .

Gain achievements by excellent performance!

Try to beat the community in the weekly highscore list!


You can find it for both iOS Universal and Android, and it will run you $4 on each.

- Friday for iOS Universal, $4
- Friday for Android, $4



Acram Looking to Start Testing Eight-Minute Empire
It's been such a crazy year for digital board games, I had nearly forgotten that Acram Digital had promised us a digital version of Ryan Laukat's mini-Civ game, Eight-Minute Empire.

Then this happened:



So, they're looking for beta testers. If you want to jump on that ship, follow the link in the tweet. We'll see if we can find more info about the digital version in the meantime. Good luck!



Lotus Coming to Mobile
At last year's Gen Con, I saw several people playing Lotus from Renegade Game Studios, but didn't have the opportunity to play it myself. It looked very cool, however, with the central goal of the game being to build flowers.

Yesterday, Dire Wolf Digital announced that they were bringing the game to iOS and Android.

If Dire Wolf Digital sounds familiar, there's a good reason. Not only have they published their own cardboard game, Clank!: A Deck-Building Adventure, but they're also responsible for the beautiful digital adaptation of Lanterns: The Harvest Festival and The Elder Scrolls: Legends. That's good news, because it means they don't mess around and we can expect Lotus to be a polished and snazzy app.



The app should be released for iOS and Android later this summer, and screenshots show that the game will offer online play either vs. friends or in ranked play, as well as pass-and-play capabilities. We're assuming that it will also have AI for solo gardeners.

We'll let you know if we can dig up any more information on Lotus in the coming weeks.

Asmodee Continues Relentless Release Schedule with Spot It! Duel
Another week, another release from Asmodee Digital. This time it's the family matching game, Spot it!, which has been released as a freemium title.

You can challenge players from around the world to see who can match symbols quicker, or you can play the solo challenges which offer variants to keep things interesting for the friendless among us.

Asmodee wrote:
In Arena Mode, each player chooses one Dobble character from their collection to battle head-to-head against an opponent. Tougher arenas filled with more ferocious adversaries await as players climb the leaderboard and claim greater rewards. Spot It! Duel also features new ways to play against friends and other players worldwide, including Special Events with unique rules for added variety. The classic Spot It! experience comes to life in Challenge Mode, where players can sharpen their reflexes, earning special rewards as they master new rules, and build a collection of Dobbles - each with unique skills to train and customize. Solo challenges include Classic, Speed and Combo Master rule variations.


This actually sounds like it might fit the freemium model pretty well, although the IAP lists gems and a bunch of other stuff, so I'm not entirely sure how high the paywall for this one gets. Hopefully, it's all the "Dobble" stuff back there, and the game can be played without worrying about earning in-game gems.

Spot It! Duel is available right now for iOS and Android and you can pick it up for nothing at the links below:

- Spot It! Duel for iOS Universal, free
- Spot It! Duel for Android, free





GMT Games and HexWar Open Up About Commands & Colors: Ancients
One of the most anticipated games for tablets has been Commands & Colors: Ancients from GMT Games. The reason it's so darn anticipated is partly because it's a great game, but also because we've been told about it for at least five years now and have never heard more than whispers about its development. Last week, GMT released their June update and actually talked about C&C: Ancients a bit, as well as dishing out 3 alpha screenshots.

C&C: Ancients is being published by HexWar, but is being developed by The Lordz Games Studio, creators of gems like Panzer Corps Wehrmacht and Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon. Here's what HexWar had to say about development in the GMT update:

HexWar wrote:
Early challenges for Commands & Colors: Ancients included creating the right "feel" for close combat, laying out the units clearly, and communicating the various game actions correctly.
This Commands & Colors game features a simple card set, but more in depth set of rules for close combat. Rules like "leader escape" and "battle back" are now implemented. The game has really started to develop the feel of playing the board game.

We took on player feedback and made information like unit stats and behaviours easily accessible in mouseover tooltips that update based on the situation. Communicating such vital information in a clear way makes gameplay smooth and easy to pick up - you will spend less time reading the manual, and more time playing the game! It also makes development easier, as we can see at a glance that combat is getting resolved according to the board game rules.

Just recently we implemented elephants and the special "elephant rampage" rules. Once the artwork is slotted into place this unit should really bring the Punic Wars to life.

There is plenty more to work on: the AI opponent, adding terrain, and multiplayer features are still to come, so stay tuned!


They also dished out three fairly low-res alpha screens. Take these with a grain of salt, as I doubt the finished game will look like this when it releases...sometime?

Hat tip: Jonas Kissling





Fighting Fantasy Legends Gets a Trailer
We associate Nomad Games Ltd (II) with their epic recreation of the classic boardgame, Talisman: Digital Edition. After seeing this trailer for their next project, I'm not sure that will be the case for long. Fighting Fantasy Legends is an upcoming interactive fiction/RPG that they're working on that is based on those classic gamebooks of the 80's. We've seen that on our tablets before, but not like this.

Instead of a gamebook, or even a cool interactive map, Fighting Fantasy Legends looks more like Warhammer Quest, but with an actual, you know, story. This first entry covers three of the original Fighting Fantasy gamebooks, City of Thieves, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, and Citadel of Chaos.

This is really the first info we've gotten about their new title, and I believe we're the first to be showing off this new trailer. In other words, "Yay, Us!" Check it out and then join me in waiting for Fighting Fantasy Legends which should be releasing for Steam, iOS, and Android on July 27.

Age of Rivals Adds Offline Mode
Since its arrival on the App Store last week, I've been a bit obsessed with Age of Rivals from Roboto Games. It's a deep and fun card game that uses card drafting and civ-building to be one of the best games on my iPad.

When it launched, the only real complaint I heard about the game was its always-online component. Roboto Games was listening and they've already updated the game to correct this. That's right, Age of Rivals no longer needs an online connection to play against the AI.

The PC/Mac version on Steam and Android version have already been updated with the new functionality, while the iOS version has had its update submitted and will go live whenever Apple gives it the green light. The game is still only $1 right now, but that sale will be ending tomorrow, so pick up Age of Rivals now. For $1, it's a no-brainer.

- Age of Rivals for iOS Universal, $1
- Age of Rivals for Android, $1
- Age of Rivals for PC/Mac via Steam, $5

Legendary Deckbuilding Game Early Access Signups Go Live
We learned that the Legendary system was going digital at Gen Con last year, but we didn't have a lot of details. Today, we still don't have many details but at least we know that it's coming soon.

Legendary DXP (as the digital version is known...anyone know what DXP stands for? What am I missing?) is coming to iOS, Android, and Steam soon, but you can sign up for Early Access now on their website. The digital version will not be using any of the IP associated with the cardboard title, and instead will be using a new fantasy-thememd world, presumably because paying for that IP cost too much money. It seems to be the Reiner Knizia's The Confrontation scenario again, but who knows?

Despite the difference in IP, it sounds like we're getting the same game:

The bestselling Legendary® Deck Building Game is coming to mobile and desktop devices. Experience Legendary with your friends like never before; same great game, a brand new fantasy.


The fantasy world that they're using seems to be a newly-created one:

Upper Deck wrote:
Welcome to the fantastical world of Alamyth where you can recruit all new legendary heroes and fight the terrifying forces of evil. Visit all new landscapes of Alamyth such as the Firelands and fight the likes of The Leprechaun Henchmen and the evil villain, Ernak The Lethal. Just beware, if the Mastermind, Terriskai: Terror Of The Skies completes his evil scheme, everyone loses.


We also learned that the digital game will have both online matches vs. random opponents or against friends, and will also have solo play vs. AI. There will also be something called The Gauntlet, which allows 5 players to battle it out for the most VP.

I've never played any of the Legendary games, mainly because I don't like pure deckbuilders and none of the IP made me squee, but I'm interested in being able to give it a go on my phone or tablet. They don't mention if Early Access is only for Steam users or will also apply to iOS/Android users, but you can head over and sign up for yourselves and see what happens.



Villains of the Multiverse Goes Live
Sentinels of the Multiverse has been installed on our devices since 2014 when it was just the basic set and expansions were merely wishes to be granted if the game sold well enough. Nearly three years later we're getting what might be the biggest expansion yet, and it also signals the end of the digital version's race to catch up. Today, the Sentinels of the Multiverse: Villains of the Multiverse expansion has gone live and that means just about everything you can do with the cardboard version is now possible in the digital realm.

Handelabra Games released the expansion this morning for all platforms, bringing in 10 new villains and 4 new environments. All 10 of the new villains can be used in Team Mode, letting you battle a group of baddies rather than the usual gang-up on one. This means that the only deck not available in the digital version is Sentinels of the Multiverse: The Celestial Tribunal Environment, which will be included in the upcoming mini-pack 4.

While this all sounds like great news, and it is, there is some bad news for iOS users. Handelabra has asked that you not update, and make sure you turn off auto-update, until they can release another update. This one, apparently, screws up something with restoring purchases on iDevices, so if you update you'll have some issues. All other platforms are fine, and can update ASAP.

The Villains expansion can be purchased via IAP, or will be downloaded for free as part of the Season 2 pass if you went that route. The base game is on sale right now, so, if you're new to all this, now's the time to buy.

- Sentinels of the Multiverse for iOS Universal, $2 (on sale)
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for Android, $2 (on sale)
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for Kindle, $2 (on sale)
- Sentinels of the Multiverse for PC/Mac via Steam, $10





Race for the Galaxy Update Drops on Mobile
The digital version of Race for the Galaxy from Temple Gates Games LLC is my frontrunner for Game of the Year in 2017, and I don't see that changing any time soon. In fact, Temple Gates just released a major update to the game that pushes it past Fantastic to Nearly Flawless.

The update was supposed to coincide with the PC release of RftG which is coming next week, but instead it came about a week early. You want a blurb? You look like you want a blurb. Here goes:

Temple Gates wrote:
Stats
Device linking for multiplayer games/friends
Multiplayer timers
Increased multiplayer game and friend maximums (36/60)
Translation Beta
Minor fixes


Ho-hum, I can hear you saying. That's not such a big deal, you're muttering. HA! While not numerous, these changes make a huge difference. Being able to link devices means that you can now continue ongoing games on any of your devices. Previously, games on your iPad couldn't be seen on your phone and vice versa. They've added timers for slow players (like me!) so that the quick players don't have to wait for our sorry butts anymore. You can add way more friends to your friends list now, and they've also included stats. Not just a simple win/loss percentage:

Temple Gates wrote:
There are so many stats. Maybe too many! For example, you can filter for number of players, difficulty etc, and see for example all the top scores you've ever gotten with each of the 6cost devs, or the top scores with every starting world. And if you click one of the top scores, it re-opens the game state so you can see everything that was in play when you got that high score.

There's also a histogram so you can see your overall score distribution, and you can filter by game setup to see where you're more and less successful.


They've also added the one thing that kept RftG from being considered for all time greatness: icon badges. Yes, now you'll be able to see at a glance if you have any turns waiting for you inside the game.

Race for the Galaxy is available now for iOS and Android, and will be on PC on the 27th.

- Race for the Galaxy for iOS Universal, $7
- Race for the Galaxy for Android, $7



Age of Rivals Now Available for $1
Age of Rivals is a pretty great card game from Roboto Games, and it launched for iOS and Android last night. Wanted to make sure everyone knew about it because the launch price is only $1, which is a steal.

Age of Rivals is a civ-building game whose main mechanism is card drafting. While it might sound like a certain game that will remain unnamed, they actually aren't that similar. This feels much more like a CCG, and even has packs that you unlock as you play.

Don't be scared off, it's NOT a CCG. In fact, there are no IAP at all and you get the full game and all the cards for $1. You just need to unlock all the cards as you play. On the plus side, you'll never unlock cards you already have, so you'll always be picking up new goodies.

The regular price of Age of Rivals will be $4, and it will go into effect next week, so jump on the $1 price while you can.

- Age of Rivals for iOS Univeral, $1 (on sale)
- Age of Rivals for Android, $1 (on sale)
- Age of Rivals for PC/Mac via Steam, $10





Asmodee Digital Having a Sale
Have you guys heard of Asmodee Digital? Well, they've been releasing and taking control of apps so quickly that their stable of online offerings is already quite enormous. That's a good thing because today they've put everything on sale through July 5th!



Everything, I think? It's possible some of the sale prices haven't filtered through all the different stores, so I'll just leave the links with the prices I'm currently seeing below.

Solitairica Getting Update June 29
One of our favorite time wasters of 2016 was Solitairica from mobile newcomer, Righteous Hammer Games. A perfect blend of cardplay and roguelike, mixed with unlockable content that always made you want to go for another run, Solitairica was a mainstay on our devices...until we finished it, that is. Sure, the game is fun, but the real fun is unlocking new stuff or taking your new cards and taking down Emperor Stuck. After everything is unlocked, the incentive to return is diminished.

Fear not, intrepid explorers! Righteous Hammer has our backs and is introducing a ton of new content next week, on June 29th. That's when a new update will land bringing both free content as well as new characters available via IAP.

Righteous Hammer wrote:
Primal Champions (DLC - 0.99 USD)
4 new decks, each consisting of a single color

-Barbarian (Attack)
Bonus card destruction when heart is low, but be careful...overflowing attack energy damages you. An aggressive deck that encourages risky play.

-Vanguard (Defense)
Powerful armor spells, and the ability to spend your armor as a resource and destroy cards. High defense with an explosive counter strike.

-Acrobat (Agility)
The combination of an exclusive wild card spell, and a trait that always reveals the second card in a column, makes this the ultimate sequencing deck.

-Sorcerer (Willpower)
Exclusive destruction and healing spells that add disruptive cards to the enemies deck. Very strategic, with lots of fun decision making.

Epic Journey (Free)
After defeating the Emperor, epic difficulty unlocks for that deck. Epic difficulty is tuned carefully to be an exciting new challenge, from the very first battle, for experienced players.

-28 battles (10 more than normal)
-More dangerous versions of all monsters and traits, as well as many new possible combinations
-Much more intense Emperor battle.
-Tighter coin economy makes careful, smart purchasing a must.


Everything in that update sounds perfect. More characters is exactly what I need to liven up the game, and the Epic Journey will give even my old characters a new life.

Solitairica is available now for iOS Universal, Android, and PC/Mac.

- Solitairica for iOS Universal, $4
- Solitairica for Android, free
- Solitairica for PC/Mac via Steam, $10



Warlock of Firetop Mountain Getting New Content
One of the best pieces of interactive fiction to be released in the last year comes from our friends at Tin Man Games, the revamping of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain (2016). While we're not yet close to being bored with all the content that comes with the initial download, Tin Man looks to be releasing more content for Warlock soon.



The new content will include new heroes to play, new parts of the mountain to explore, and will also let you play as the monsters. Hmmm. You'll notice that the tweet only mentions Steam, and that's no accident. The update is coming to Steam in July and they're hoping to push it out on iOS later this year. There's currently no Android version, so no update there (duh!), but they haven't ruled out an Android version of Warlock somewhere down the road.

- Warlock of Firetop Mountain for iOS Universal, $5
- Warlock of Firetop Mountain for PC/Mac via Steam, $20



News You Already Know: Pathfinder Adventures Is Out for PC/Mac
I was going to report this last week, but it was the first week of summer and having my kids at home disrupted any and all attempts to get work done. We're settling into a schedule now, so hopefully I won't be absent for a week at a time anytime soon.

Anyway, the news that everyone already knows is that Pathfinder Adventures, everyone's favorite bug-filled gem, has made it's way to the big screen. That is, you can now play Pathfinder Adventures on your PC or Mac.

Considering this is Obsidian Entertainment we're talking about, the rollout wasn't without some issues. As you might remember, Obsidian has teamed up with Asmodee Digital to publish Pathfinder, which means there is now an Asmodee login. This is good because all the content you have on your devices can now be linked together and shared across your devices. Of course, it didn't work when it launched. They quickly patched it, however, and it seems to be fine now with the caveat that it doesn't want to automatically log you into your Asmodee account on iPad when you launch, meaning you'll have to log in each new game.

Also, and this is a big bigger issue, all my characters and games were wiped with the update. Gone were all my games, including the 2 parties I had in the final mission. Guess it's back to the grind, eh? Luckily, I quite enjoy the journey in this one, so I don't mind quite so much.

The PC version is $25 normally, but is on sale now for 25% off. This gets you the Rise of the Runelords campaign on your laptop. Alternatively, you can spend $30 and get the "Obsidian Edition" which gives you the following:

Obsidian wrote:
-Base Deck & 6 Additional Adventure Decks
-11 Iconic Characters
-1000 original cards
-Treasure Cards 1: 88 Uncommon and Rare Treasure cards
-Epic and Legendary Cards 1: 106 Epic and Legendary Treasure Cards
-Gold, Runes, and Charms: 5000 Gold, 8 Runes, and 21 Charms
-Pillars of Eternity Promotion Cards: 3 promotional ally cards: Eder, Pallegina, Goblin Golem of Obsidian
-All Alts: 11 Alternate Equipment sets for the Iconic characters
-Legendary Items: 3 Legendary rarity cards
-Future Goblin campaign Deck 1 with 2 new Goblin Characters.


No word on how long the sale lasts on the standard PC/Mac edition, and while they announced that it would be coming on GoG and the Mac App Store, it still doesn't seem to be on those sites. Right now, it's Steam or nothing.

- Pathfinder Adventures for iOS Universal, free
- Pathfinder Adventures for Android, free
- Pathfinder Adventures for PC/Mac, $18.74 (on sale)





Age of Rivals Coming to iOS and Android This Week
If you're one of those still waiting for 7 Wonders to, someday, come to our devices, maybe I can offer you a substitute? It's called Age of Rivals and has been on Steam since March. It features card drafting and civilization building, but in a way that's much, much different than anything with "Wonders" in the title. It's also making the move to mobile later this week.

Age of Rivals is a CCG that eschews deck-building and instead uses drafting as the mechanism with which you'll build your kingdom. Each player is dealt four cards, select one and pass the remaining cards to your opponent. Repeat until you've selected four cards and then play cards to your tableau, mixing and matching for wealth, power, and more. This is a deep game with more icons than Race and Roll for the Galaxy mixed together. Plan to climb a little bit of a learning curve when you download this one.

Besides dumping the deck-building, it also gets rid of another CCG annoyance: random boosters. There is no IAP in Age of Rivals, instead you'll earn new cards as you play with no repeats or duplicates clogging up the works.

Age of Rivals is coming to iOS and Android on June 22 and will have a special sale price of $1 for the first week. $1 for Age of Rivals is a steal, and you should definitely pick it up as soon as you can.

- Age of Rivals for PC/Mac via Steam, $10
