I'm looking for new digital versions of board games to play that have bots. My favorites are:

PC:
- Tropic Euro (Puerto Rico)
- Samurai
- Kingsburg
- JCloisterZone (Carcassonne)

iTouch:
- Neuroshima Hex
- Catan
- Battle at Gundabad (Dominion)
- Wabash Cannonball (Chicago Express)
- Samurai
- Through the Desert (although damn this thing is SLOW)
- Army of Frogs

Android: (Just got my droid so this list is short)
- Androminion (Dominion, really nice and fast!)
- Condito (San Juan)


Anyone have any other recommendations? I prefer Euros to ameritrash and I really like FAST UIs without a lot of "sloooowwwwww movingggg the carrrrd" animations.

new world colony is pretty good but I'm no expert, not a real board game though but is like some out there. (ios)

ticket to ride (and expansions) is out there with bots and is fun (also online play) (ios)

I have both of the above.

On my "wish list" are (all ios) I don't know how many of them have bots though. nor how good they would be. Figured you could search away. Also no clue on how good some of them are. I'm just cheap and have them in my "watch list".

I don't know if it fits your criteria, but there is an online version of Memoir 44 that lets you play against the computer. There are actually two different bots to choose from, if I'm not mistaken.

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

Seriously.

Crimson: Steam Pirates is worth a look, too.

Kelsey, do you have a link? Is that a PC game, or?

BTW Dave, that geeklist is somewhat old... more than half the games I clicked on are now taken down.

Is there a thread/geeklist around somewhere to track new Android board games with AIs? 'Cause if there is, I can't find it.

Wabash Cannonball for iOS is some of the best portable gaming I have ever experienced.

Most of the games at http://boardspace.net/english/index.shtml have good bots to play against.

I'm playing Carcassone and Catan in my Samsung Galaxy S, both made by Exocet games, very good. 3€ each. In Catan you have the seafarers expansion, that includes a campaign, for another 3€. Winning, specially on Catan, it's not easy at all.

I'm also playing Condado (this one is free), a version of San Juan.

All of them for Android.
