Since 2011, I've been keeping a GeekList of iOS adaptations of board games. Sometime in 2012, I added polls to each entry to let BGG users rate the apps. The list now has more than 200 games and 6000 total ratings!

Last year, I compiled the ratings from that list to present the 25 best board game apps as chosen by the Geek HiveMind. Since then, there have been great new apps and many more votes on the list. With that in mind, I now present the 2015 version.


The details:

mintcamel Ratings were captured on 17 December, 2015.

limecamel Each app is rated on a 1-4 scale, with the mean rating presented here.

grapecamel Only apps with at least 25 votes are included.

lemoncamel Where appropriate, I'll lump different versions of a game together.

orangecamel The list is presented in reverse order

goldencamel If you want to find direct links to the apps, cast your vote, or find the appshopper account that will alert you to sales, head over to the original geeklist: iOS versions of Board Games

Thanks for reading.

The ladder-climbing game drops in rating and in rank, but manages to sneak into the top 25 even with relatively few voters.

This app got a big boost with its 2.0 release in September of 2013. Does that explain its still-rising rank?

This was one of the early board game apps that really grabbed me. Beautifully done with intuitive and responsive UI and an active online play community. Sadly, the app was recently pulled from the app store. Perhaps that has something to do with FFG acquiring the license...?

I've played this thing hundreds of times. It's so easy to knock out a satisfying gaming experience in 5 minutes. I never want to play the physical version again.

TtR has been an interesting case. It has existed in this iPad version, Ticket to Ride Pocket, and Ticket to Ride Pocket Europe. The last of those was recently pulled from the app store. For a while the iPad version lacked the asynchronous online play offered by the pockets, but that was rectified this year. New expansions can likely keep this fresh for a while.

As a side note, TtR Pocket has a rating of 3.74 with 100 votes and would have made this list on its own at #9. Impressive.

Another new game rockets to the top. Playdek kills it nearly every time.

2014 Rank: New to List

Out of 74 total votes, this has 66 4-stars and 8 3-stars. That's it. CGE pulled out what seemed like an impossible move to translate this real-time ship building game into an amazing iPad experience with fun multiplayer and an engrossing solo campaign. In Vlaada we trust.
