Taking a 7-8 hour road trip this weekend with four dudes. Planning out games to have on hand on my iPad to make the distance shorter and more fun!

This game is the crack cocaine of online play. I'm sad that there's no chat for online, but games do go quickly. On a road trip, it will be easy to teach and to pass and play. Too bad Dominion or Thunderstone aren't out yet

Quick to learn, difficult to master. A lot more cerebral than Ascension.

The interface is super slick on this game. I haven't played it much, but after a few basic games, I think at least one other passenger will be ready for the advanced game.

Ok so the list is a little Knizia heavy (but so is the app store!), but these games are great for short intense strategic sessions. The interface is a little weird but the game is simple enough to learn, difficult to master.

Too bad almost all of the other Knizia games have no multiplayer (I'm looking at you High Society, Kingdoms, Money, Modern Art)

To be honest, I have not learned Tikal, and I'm not sure learning or teaching it will be the best via this app. But we have 8 hours each way, and it will be something different.

Great interface, simple to teach. If you've played card games, you can learn this one. Pass and Play is great! (Bonus for being easily readable for color blind folks like me)

A classic bridge game for non gamers. Simple enough to learn, but the farm deployment give this one some advanced strategy.

Bang implementation on iPad is sort of wonky (difficult to keep cards secret in a small space) but face to face pass and play is a lot better than the online (read: no social interaction) gameplay.

This is the rare case of the app being much more playable and less fiddly than the actual game. Easy to keep track of turn order countdowns. Where is the online component for this one?

The only co-op game on my list. I love the theme (I've played lots of Arkham Horror but never the physical version of Elder Sign). The app is super-refined. I'm not sure about exactly how the midnight penalties get selected (maybe its in the physical version) but this is for sure fun for a group.

Great interface for Pass and Play, given that each player has no information about how far the others have advanced towards making their bodies. I like this game, and its very light, which is good for non gamers.

The app is free, its hard to roll dice in a car. The app is a little weird in that it seems as if there are unlimited numbers of each type of dice? But it's light enough and everyone likes the theme.

Just added this one. Never played, but I'm hopeful it will survive past the drive home due to online asynchronous.

So the iOS version is only two player, so what. The interface is very helpful with sorting out the races and modifiers. A game plays very quickly.
