2013 Good Gift Games Guide
Via a tweet by @jasonsantamaria comes an interesting list of board game suggestions,1 most of which I'd never heard of.
The two that jumped out at me are Forbidden Desert, sequel to Forbidden Island, and Hanabi.
Board Games on Your iPhone or iPad permalink
A lot of board games make for great iOS games. The reviews on some of these look great - and for a fraction of the price of the full board game you can play and practice strategies on your iPad:
- Forbidden Island is $4.99
- Pandemic is $6.99
- Puerto Rico HD is $4.99
- Lost Cities is $3.99
- Ticket to Ride for iPad is $6.99, Ticket to Ride Pocket for iPhone is $1.99, and Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket is also $1.99. It's a bit too small for my eyes on the iPhone but it'd be great on the iPad.
- Worth mentioning: Carcassonne for iPhone and iPad is on sale right now for $6.99. This is probably the game I've played the most on iOS.
What board games (iOS or regular) are you looking forward to playing over the holidays?
