Recommended board game apps for iPhone/iPad/iPod
Here is our selection of iOS apps to play great modern board games.
All these apps are a digital version of existing board games and most of them are best-sellers.
We recommend all of them heartwarmingly but we awarded 3 "black meeples" to the very best ones.
If you enjoyed Lost Cities on Happy Meeple, then you will probably like the Lost Cities app. It is pretty good.
Carcassonne is one of the greatest games. The rules are relatively simple and the game offers an excellent mix of tactics, strategy and luck. And the app is simply amazing!
Ticket to ride (Ipad)
This game is a best-seller and rightly so. It has simple rules and is generally liked by all members of the family. The digital version is excellent. So if you have not played this game yet, you should definitely get it now.
Ticket to ride Pocket
Same as above for smaller screens.
A 2014 hit. The app is very good and offers a good number of solo challenges.
Mr Jack Pocket
A quick-playing 2-player game of deduction. Will you catch Mr Jack before he escapes?
Great implementation of a great game. The rules have a certain complexity but the app comes with a good tutorial.
This game has complex rules. However if you go over this little issue, you will have tons of fun. The solo missions are really well done.
Catan shook the board game world when it was released in 1995. It is without any doubt the best-selling modern board game (15+ million copies). The app is not perfect but it should not prevent you from playing this great game.
A reference in the 'Push your luck' category. Quick-playing games. Simple rules.
