Hello everyone!

My girlfriend and I are busy with school and are finding it hard to find the time to set up a board game. However, school is almost over, and we just need something to scratch our itch until the semester ends, so we don't want a game that we already own. What's the iOS we can put on her iPhone to get at this? Here's the stipulations:

None of the games I already own (though most of them aren't on iOS anyway [I'm looking at you, Arkham Horror])
We tend to not like Euros a lot (Cataan we hate, Seasons is great, but only kind of a Euro)
We really like Co-ops.
We usually play with only the two of us.


We have Ticket to Ride on my iPod, so that's probably a lesser option, if someone wanted to recommend it. What do you guys think? It's annoying not having a "real" board game search in the app store, but I guess that's the burden we carry for having a less popular hobby.

Forbidden Island

Carcassonne is also worth getting for head to head play

Are you searching on your phone? It is an ipad only app so you need to search on a pc or ipad, it won't show up on your phone.

SW is ok but elder sign is awful... Not sure what it is about the game but I found it unintuitive, repetitive and really didn't get on eith the theme. I would recommend ascension and neuroshima hex for iOS... I have both on my 3GS and they are much more pleasurable
