So in what I am sure will be a surprise to no one, I have played a decent amount of board game ports as apps on my phone. As my phone got older and Hearthstone took up more space, I eventually had to take them off due to space limitations. However since I have finally upgraded I put a few of them back on. So I figured I would post some of my favorites out here in the off chance anyone has interest in board game apps. A lot of these will likely go on sale over the holidays, so if you are interested in any let me know and I can let you know if the price drops (though some are free, I just don’t remember which ones).
Lords of Waterdeep - this is probably my favorite BG port. It is a light-medium worker placement game set in the D&D universe. While I generally prefer my Worker placement games a little heavier, this is great for an app as it doesn’t require a ton of premeditation but has enough strategy to keep your grey matter engaged.
Ascension Chronicles of the Godslayer - This game has a strange theme so I will skip that part but it is a fun little deck builder that invented the random row deck building style that is seen in the DC deck building game that we played once with C. It had a lot of randomness to it but is fun one to play.
Agricola - Most everyone has played this one but just wanted to say that the app is a perfect port of the game. I actually haven’t re-downloaded this one but I am sure I will at some point when I am in the mood for something heavier.
Potion Explosion - I am told this is the board game version of candy crush or other games of that ilk. I never played any of those but just recently downloaded this one. It’s fun, quick playing, and just thinky enough.
Suburbia - another one that I need to redownload at some point. This is basically sim city the board game. Basically people build competing cities and you score points by laying down tiles to build population and income while balancing against pollution and other stuff.
Those are my favorites but there are some other good ones if people are interested in some other recommendations.
