Re: <t>The Best Games for Two Players on iPhone, iPad and Android</t>

Tides of Time is only 2-player if you want to pass your phone back and forth. Does it fit the list? Sure. But I'm really grump about how obnoxiously barebones it is that I wish it weren't featured here. The underlying app is good; the multiplayer is abysmal.

<t>I???d probably give the app 5/5.<br/> <br/> I don???t really like Fluxx. It can be mildly amusing with my kids but there is really no strategy, there is a ton of randomness, and the game can sometimes drag on forever.<br/> <br/> That said, the app is a perfect recreation of the card game. It is b...

Re: <t>The Weekender: Barbarian's Unite! Edition</t>

For more good tips on gaming with kids, there is a good thread about it over at statelyplay.com

Regarding Fox Factory, I may give it a look. Pango has some good apps for young kids. I particularly like their sandbox building apps, which were great for my kids around age 4 or so.

Re: <t>I did not know LEGO Tower was a thing, but now you can sign up for the beta on iOS & Android</t>

I quite enjoy most of NimbleBit’s games. Most of their games are time-gated, meaning the further you progress in the game, the longer things take (and of course there is a premium currency to speed things up). For some reason, though, these games never rubbed me the wrong way like so many other game...

Re:

LOL. The reviewer seems to overlook the fact that this is a multiplayer game. Playing solo would not be interesting, a bit like playing a football match by yourself and wondering why there is no strategy :) Admittedly, the biggest failing here is the lack of an effective tutorial. Those unfamiliar ...

Re:

So is TheoTown or Pocket City the preferred city building app for android? I have not played TheoTown, but I have thoughts on Pocket City; it is very shallow. Pocket City is a pretty little sandbox game with little depth that you can play to completion in a couple hours. There is little forward pla...

Re:

I'm in the beta and can say this is one of the best board games I've played (after Twilight Struggle). I can't imagine playing the cardboard version though. I imagine it'd be a fiddly nightmare. Cardboard isn't bad. The economy tracks are easy to read and manage. The biggest issue is that you reall...

<t>I really like Necrodancer, though I am quite bad at it. I haven't played this newest version, but it is certainly on my wishlist for my next road trip.<br/> <br/> Also, there is a version of this game coming to the Nintendo Switch that mixes the game with Zelda, meaning playable Zelda characters,...

Thanks for dusting this topic off; it's a good one. Two quick notes: First, FFG has digitized one 2-player duel game - Battlelore: Command. I don't think this makes it any more likely to see Star Wars: Rebellion, though. FFG doesn't seem all that interested in mobile games. Second, (I'm sorry for no...

As far as I know, Asmodee has gone radio silent on both Scythe and Terraforming Mars, and I???m starting to worry that they???ve dropped the mobile versions.

Shards of Infinity is on the horizon.
