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 not providing any kind of evidence but I can't look for it right now) I think Digidiced has said they are working on Gaia Project, though it is a ways off.

FFG are owned by Asmodee now anyway, so most of what they'd do digitally would come under the Asmodee Digital label. There is Fantasy Flight Interactive now though, which is making the digital LOTR LCG adaptation. That might be coming to mobile.

When you get a chance, care to try and dig up a source for Gaia Project?

Le Havre: The Inland Port is not the same game as Le Havre. It's based on different board game, a two player version with altered rules from the original., which was never in the BGG top ten

Ah, so exactly like the Agricola situation then? I will amend! Thanks for the heads-up.

Really enjoying the app - have got a huge amount of enjoyment already for what amounts to the price of an Aussie Big Mac meal and expect to continue to enjoy for a long time.

Appreciate the support provided by Digidiced in the few few days of release and active involvement by James in this forum. Digidiced IMHO have shown huge improvements in the development of their apps from their earliest releases (Agriculture ACGaS) to date (Terra Mystica, Indian Summer and now CoB).

To me it???s a no brainer to support the developer that brings high quality digital ports of quality board games. James if you read this - Gaia Project can???t come soon enough for me.


Thank you! I'm not sure when it will come because there is also one other game in front of it that is also VERY popular. whistle App development can take awhile and can be expensive. For those complaining about the price ought to realize that the app stores take quite a big bite of the revenue from that cost. I think Google and Apple can now afford to lower their cut from developers.

What is the name of the game that goes to the splash screen picture? And can you guys subtitle your pics with the associated game from now on?

It's Scythe: Digital Edition - the site doesn't have any functionality to subtitle header images specifically, although we can do body images if we want to.

The Terraforming Mars mobile version has apparently had a decent beta going for a while. I had no idea either.

Feature releases (like the recent Steam update with drafting) are coming just behind the PC/Mac version, and it sounds like it???s almost ready.

Personally, i???m saving that one for the table and looking forward to the mobile Scythe, which is still radio silent AFAICT.
