Games like xcom and mansions of madness require an app in order to be played.
Currently these games are marked as "Electronic" which seems fairly different and distinct from "App-assisted", esp because most "electronic" games are still self-contained: if you hand Catchphrase to anyone, they can play it. If you hand XCOM to someone, they have to first download an app to play it so they better have a phone or tablet handy.

Therefore could app-assisted games be labelled as such?
