The world of board gaming has witnessed lots of good games emerged and praised by many. Some of these games have reach a new level when they have been digitalized and made as iPad games apps, making it possible for iPad users to enjoy it on the go.

While I still enjoy playing physical copy of my games, there are some games that I think would be great if implemented as Ipad apps. Games with open information to all players would be the best, while those where the information should be keep secret from others are always possible for pass and play session.

I am writing this Geeklist to share with you guys games that I want badly on my iPad during such times like waiting for food to arrive at the diner, waiting for the next flight, or waiting to feel sleepy after drinking two cups of coffee at night. The games that I want to suggest here are high on my wife 'games that I will play and enjoy' list, making me craved more for an iPad version of them.

For all iPad board gamers, I know you have your own 'this should be on iPad' list too. So, what games do you think should be turned into iPad apps, and why?

Why oh why, such a great game like Finca has not receive the love from iOS apps developers? I could imagine the island with swaying trees, sounds of seagulls, donkeys and carts being pulled!

My wife will surely be happy to play this to escape boredom as this is one of her favorite games of all time!

This is a new game in my house, yet it has been received well by my wife. It is a great couple game, but the cards shuffling were tedious and guarding the cards in the forest, the sticks and the pans from the loathing of our baby was tiresome. Morels as an app in my iPad will be baby-proof and awesome because then we will be able to take a hike looking for those mushrooms while lying down in our comfortable bed. What an exercise!

We have Lost Cities as an app, so why not Jaipur? This game is beautiful and will look awesome on iPad. I contacted Asmodee and they said they are not planning to reprint the game anytime soon, and I failed to get this game in my country, Singapore and China - showing that this game has becomes scarce in the market. So Asmodee, why not turn it into an app?

(Thankfully, my FLGS able to get some remaining copies from US and shipped them to my country a week ago. I was able to get one of them before all gone, in less than a week! But still, an app will make this game smoothier.)

As I said, games with open information are the best to be played on iPad, and this is one of the said games. We already have an online version, what we need now is an iPad version of it. Yes, I can still play the physical copy of this game at home, but at home there is only my wife worthy to be called as gaming partner, still and all this game shines with more than two. It will be better if we are able to play it with some decent AI players on my iPad....

Isn't that it will be easier to play this on iPad? I can't sleeve this, so to prevent damage to the round cards, iPad-ed it! Moreover, the games is very suitable as a screen touch game, because some of the images on the round cards... even I have doubt what to call them.

What do you called that green hand as?

This game would be totally awesome for iOS (iPad mainly, it'd probably be too small - much like Summoner Wars - on iPhone).

I'd pay any reasonable price for this.
