• Coding Monkeys Post Carcassonne Info Update to Blog - May 13
It only took 5 months since their last info update, but the Coding Monkeys, makers of pretty much the finest example of an iOS board game in their app Carcassonne, have updated their blog with information about Game Center integration and then it's on to a couple of expansions.

They even acknowledge their own glacial pace in the last paragraph of the post. Strangely, they also use the word "sloppy" in making a veiled reference to "others of our favorite board games." Eh, what's that about?

• Puerto Rico Nearing Release - May 13
Codito has posted that they have submitted Puerto Rico to Ravensburger for final approval and posted a screenshot. I think things are looking good.

• Big Daddy's Creations Update on Neuroshima Hex and Army of Frogs
Łukasz reports that Big Daddy's Creations is trying to finish and send to Apple another Neuroshima Hex update with two new armies as in-app-purchases (New York and Neojungle), so Army of Frogs is a bit late. He also thinks that May is no longer possible, but they're targeting it for mid June. A short promotional video of Army of Frogs could also be released soon.
