I have a long commute. I have an iphone. I like boardgames.

Looking for feedback from users who have in fact played a cool boardgame on an iOS and would recommend it's purchase.

I played the free download, liked it and bought the full version. I have not played the board game but I feel like I could hold my own. Great interface, works well for the iphone becasue it blows up the pieces so you can see them when selecting and the grid doesn't seem too cluttered when you place them. The AI is pretty good too.

Pretty good implementation. I don't own the game, but wanted to learn, so for $5 I took the plunge. I'm pretty pleased with it.

Another game that I am please with. I didn't enjoy Agricola, the few times that I had played it, but bought the app anyway. Now I have learned to enjoy the game.

Just updated today (which means the price went up) to support 5 players via asynch, solo or pass-n-play.

My most played iOS game by time (and play count, since a round takes ~5mins). Just something really fun and it's got that 'one more play' thing going on. A VERY well done app.

I don't know how this wasn't one of the first on the list. It's an excellent implementation of a great game. It has wonderful pass-and-play and is so easy to play a quick game.

I forgot to mention this one. This is a great filler, waiting for the bus. I can't help imagining I'm in the scene with Roger Moore in the James bond film Octopussy. AI pretty good, sometimes I think the computer pulls out the cheat dice on me too.

This is probably my favorite. I just kinda burned out on it but I'll be back after I heal up. The AI is good enough that I haven't tried real players yet. I have a feeling that there are some real skillful people out there.

Very good implementation. As an IOS game there are of course no bits to organize. The interface is easy to understand and it displays all the information that is needed in a clear manner. The AI has progressively harder levels of difficulty.
iPad only. I have both iPhone and iPad so I tend to lump them together for IOS.

Out of all the iOS board games I own, this is one of the top three I keep coming back to.

A pretty good implementation of the physical game.

The IOS version of DS is pretty solid. The AI could use some work, but overall I have been satisied with the game. Plus, it's nice to play a game of DS in less than an hour.

This is a really well-done implementation of an already good tabletop game. I just downloaded this a few days ago, and have not yet taken it for a spin with multiplayer yet, so I can't vouch for that functionality, but vs. computer is pretty entertaining!

I ended up alternating between this and Ascension a great deal whilst away from civilisation for three weeks. It's a clean interface but you might need to be a bit of a fan to get the most enjoyment out of it.

Elder Sign is also first rate.

Warhammer Quest shines. It's a faithful adaption of the game and it's probably the best iOS dungeon crawler around. It has an RPG feel: you travel to towns to trade, train, etc., your characters level up and acquire better items and equipment, and their is additional content if you want. Hacking & slashing has never been more fun. (iPad)

I recently bought the 2014 MtG game for my iPad mini and I can't get enough of it. It's pricey though at $9.95 but I'm getting many hours of enjoyment out of it.

This was a Kick Starter I believe and it's a GREAT wargame that even non-wargamers would enjoy. It's a turn-based area control style game. Worth the $9.95 price. Plays well solo or against an opponent. Worth checking out. (iPad)

I really enjoy the board game, and the iOS app is pretty decent. I don't play this nearly as much as others (Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, Bang!, etc.) but it's still a fun game that translates pretty well to the digital platform.
