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)

Lanterns and Other Renegade Game Studios Coming to Mobile
Today, Renegade Games has announced a partnership with Dire Wolf Digital to bring many of their games to mobile. Thanks to Dave’s alter ego at PT for this tip.

Looks like the team plans to bring many games out with the first being Lanterns: the Harvest Festival. If you’ve been hanging around the geek lately, you’ve heard about this game. It will be awesome to see these rising star on mobile. We’ll bring you more details when we have them




Wartile Kickstarter Canceled
So this article started out as a preview for Wartile. I actually spent the last few hours exploring an early build on steam, but looked up to see the cancelation notice.

On their blog they explain that success seemed impossible, so they opted to pull the campaign. The team is going back to the drawing board to figure out how to best form the game for the community.

For what it’s worth, the time I spent with the game was pretty great. It was a pretty game (if not amazing on my right) and an interesting mix of turn based and real time mechanics. You have a team of minis that you move one by one. When near an enemy, combat happens automatically. On top of this, there is a card mechanic you can use to buff or support your characters. It’s a pretty interesting experience.

All in all, it is sad to see the delay, but we will keep you posted as the game progresses.




Chronicle RuneScape Legends Entering Open Beta
A few months back, we posted on Chronicle RuneScape Legends, a digital card game set in the RuneScape universe. I don’t know about you, but this series has always held a special place in my heart.

As of today, you can sign up for the Open Beta on PC. While riding the Hearthstone train, this game seems to be pretty unique and new take on the digital card game.

On top this, we’ve got a brand new trailer. Check it out:

Preview: Pathfinder Adventure Card Game

We don’t often do previews here on BGG, but, I guess, we also don’t often see a game with the level of reach and anticipation that Pathfinder Adventure card game seems to have. And, you’ll be glad to hear, for good reason.

There is a term Dave and I throw around on occasion, “marriage killer.” This is a digital board game that we feel is the answer to all our digital gaming prayers. It is a game that offers hours and hours of gameplay, a game that is perfect solo or has an amazing online system, a game that we love and can see singing on mobile platforms. So far, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game seems to check most of these boxes.



In the preview, I’ve been able to play through the initial set of scenarios found in the box. This included chasing down a brigand, stopping a poisoner, and challenging a dragon. There was also a brief tutorial featuring prebuilt characters and a fairly simple mission. As I’ve not played much of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game in physical forum (blasphemy, I know) this tutorial was essential for me. I am happy to report that apart from one or two minor exceptions, I was able to pick up the game rather quickly.



While the game does seem to follow the physical rules pretty closely, it does limit you to two characters and defines them for you, a rogue and a cleric. I hope this will open up upon further play-throughs, but for now the characters they give you are good places to start. Each character plays differently and they teach about different approaches to solve encounters.



Each scenario has been book ended with narrative segments to really give you a complete RPG experience. Obsidian seems to have really leaned in to the video game nature when they can. This is also reflected in the UI which does a pretty admirable job of information managements considering all the little bits that need to be tracked. I think you’ll be impressed.



As mentioned, the game starts you out with the first formal set of scenarios. Adventure packs will be IAP, though the price is not 100% known (its says $0.99 each right now, but there is no way to know if that will stick). It took me somewhere around 3 to 5 hours to play the initial batch of content and I am itching to get my hands on more. There has been talk that there will be a season pass for Rise of the Runelords, but more details on that will be coming later. For now it seems like a pretty straightforward model and one that will provide you options.



I’ve really enjoyed my time with Pathfinder Adventure Card Game so far and would love to stop writing so I can go play some more. Honestly, I think we are all in for a great surprise next month. Stay tuned for this one!
