I'm thinking about getting an ipad. Does an iPad work well with online boardgaming sites like BSW or Board Game Arena? Do certain sites work but others don't?

BSW does not work on iPad. Have to remember that games using Java Applets (JavaScript is ok) or any plug-ins (Flash, Silverlight, etc) won't work.

http://www.happymeeple.com/ does work. It was headlined on BGG's front page news this week... http://www.boardgamegeek.com/blogpost/10304/the-week-in-revi....

Looking for more that are compatible.

Lots of apps do have online play.

I have used boardgamearena and yucata.de from my iPad. (not extensively, but a few times) Yucata is kinda clunky, but they have both been usable.

www.littlegolem.net, www.yourturnmyturn.com, www.itsyourturn.com, www.goldtoken.com all work well enough on an iPad. www.littlegolem.net also has a version which is optimized for iPhone. These sites mainly cater for abstract games, though they do have a few other kinds of games too.

Most games on www.yucata.de are playable on an iPad.
