You'd think so, but I think some games are just no fun on a computer. Settlers of Catan is the first board game that I love to play in real life but hate to play in the virtual world.

It also depends on the price. I like Carcassonne quite a lot, but I'm not willing to pay $9.99 for the iPhone version. I got Ticket to Ride, Tikal, Ra, and Stone Age for $2.99 each and they are all very well translated to the small screen (even though Ra still has a few bugs). Bring the price down to that range and I'd pick up Carcassonne too.

Thurn and Taxis would probably be an excellent iOS translation.

Huh... I'm the other way around.... I prefer computer games of Catan, and would rather use f2f time to play any other board game, especially if there's no digital counterpart

BTW, what bugs does Ra have?

The biggest most annoying thing with RA iOS is that it can just stop doing anything. I usually play a 3-player game and it isn't supposed to be my turn and the other 2 AI players aren't doing anything at all - and of course, neither can I because it's still not my turn.

You can pull up the menu screen, you can pull up players' tile screens, you can even look at the tile descriptions, but nothing gets the game moving again.

I have contacted Sage Games about it and they promise they are working on the fix.

Other bugs are minor, like animation lags, and no score showing up for me, but AI players scores are visible. Those are livable because I can see my score on my player tile screen.

Yes, I totally agree this should be on iOS. Preferably an app made by a company that knows what they're doing. If it gets the budget of a LoW or a TtR, this could be a great app!

With all the games being released on iOS I thought this thread should be revived. Who do we have to beat up to get this made?
