Train Game anyone?

Having just procured an iPhone, how shall I board game enable it?

I have already bookmarked BGG, Boardgameprices.com/iphone, and Ryan C's BGG iPhone logging app. What else is essential or potentially wonderful?

Score-it was written by a BGGer and has modules for several popular games including Agricola. It also is the only scorekeeper app that I've seen that allows for more than two players/teams.

Pandora-internet radio.

CheckWord(free) or WordMaster($)-they will tell you if a word is scrabble legal. They can also do anagrams and help with crossword puzzles. I'd been wanting a Franklin Scrabble Companion for years, but couldn't bring myself to pay $40 for it. Now I don't have to.

Easy Wi-Fi-logs you onto AT&T wi fi spots easily

AroundMe-Tell it what type of business you need and it will show you what is available.

Amazon.com-take a picture of a book and it will find it for you and sell it to you.

Wikipanion-never wonder about anything ever again.

Edit: Just thought of this
My wife really likes Frozen Lexicon. It is an anagram game.

Thanks for the list - capital job. While I'm sure I'll get a game or two (or ten), what I'm really looking for advice on is iPhone based tools to make my boardgaming experience better. Apps like BGG for recording plays, picking a game and the like. Boardgameprices for comparison shopping.

I will take a good look for a decent bridge app.

Thanks again

-Ron

I can't think of anything that would add to gaming, except maybe Motion-X Dice if you're traveling.

The games I play often are Cribbage Lite and Go (I think I found it by searching for gnugo. Both are free, and full featured despite the Lite tag.

I recommend:

Score - programmed by the same fellow that did the BGG app
MachDice - The best of the iPhone dice rollers, in my opinion.

You guys are totally missing UniWar, which is the most awesome (multiplayer capable!) strategy game on the iPhone!
