Whatever the price, it's likely to be much more than the Small World 2 'app' and if you have that, I think you only need the physical version if you have more space than you know what to do with...

Would you say this is true for most games that have decent app forms or just Small World?

i got the smallworld 2 app in a humble bundle and, unlike the Catan and Carcassonne apps, i just can't seem to get into it. Not sure when it's supposed to start getting fun. Would be interested to hear from someone on how representative it is of the physical game.

It depends on the game, how often you're going to play it and who with.

So the Ticket To Ride removes any need I have for the physical games because a) cost, especially for extra maps, b) I wouldn't play it enough for the cost to be worth it, and c) there are online games starting at any point.

Small World isn't quite as popular online, but the first two apply.

Suburbia does all the brain ache scoring for you - there's no way I would get a physical copy - but I still have one of Kingdom Builder, because that one does get played.

Very. I like the app more than the Carc one because the AI is better and there's online play.

If you don't like it, getting a physical copy would be a waste of money.

So it's the boardgame for £20, and as of 8:52 it's "100% claimed" with an option to join a waiting list.

How do you find your position on the waiting list on an iPad?

It said something like "You are #1 on the waiting list. Chances are - good".
If you do not see a number then assume there are too many already on the list.

Yeah! Was there at the right second too!

Ordered alongside the Cursed expansion...

The Star Wars Tantive IV at £30 was an incredible price. No surprise it was gone as it appeared! Luckily for my wallet, I didn't have time to click on both...

Big tip. If you are on the waiting list - do not navigate away from the page. D'oh!

I'm feeling rather lucky now

Same for me. It may be a browser thing. Hopefully it won't prevent us getting the offer if our time comes up.
