I have been keeping track of my plays of actual physical board games. My cousin was asking me why I don't count the games I play on iOS and PC.

My question is do you count games on iOS and PC on your games played lists and if so do you count them towards your 10x10 challenge and such?

I don't count anything played on the computer as being played. I only track the plays done with the actual game.

Basically, I want to see how much use I'm getting out of my games, and whether or not they're getting played. If I'm not playing it physically, I don't really need the board game.

I don't count IOS or computer games either but I know some that do. I think it's entirely up to you. People who only get to solo game, well, it's their only choice.

I don't count PC/phone games against AI, because it feels like I'm just playing hearts or solitaire on the computer. But I will count PC/phone games against real people or solo games played with a physical game.

Although I vastly prefer to play Face to Face, I DO count my iOS and online games. For me it still counts as I gain experience (I get better at the game), I spent time learning/playing the game, I enjoy it and there are some games I prefer to play it on the iPad or online (Neuroshima Hex, Agricola even though I also have the boardgame, Through the Ages ).

I play many games Face to Face (Pass and Play) on the iPad with my girlfriend.
