Board Game Apps - Is the change in times making you consider getting into them?
Ever since I watched @3MBG's video on the best games to play on steam for board gamers, I've been entertaining the idea of getting in on digital adaptations. One of my goals for 2020 was to become a more well-rounded gamer by trying out new or staple games that I'd probably never own myself, so this will be a great option. And while there are free games that are great, I'm also open to the idea of getting 5-10 games that will basically add up to the price of a typical board game.
So far, I've gotten into these:
- #On Tour - This was before J's video, but thought I'd mention it. Solid roll & write with a completely pasted on theme, but it's still fun.
- #Tokaido - Got it for free when there was a deal. Played once and while they did a great job with the app, it won't be getting repeat plays from me.
- #Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization - Wonderful adaptation and super challenging. Especially because I could never imagine myself playing this on the tabletop. Too much to manage.
Games I plan to get:
- #Paperback - Word-building deck-builder. That alone gets my interest ($4.99)
- #Onirim - I like look, simplicity, and quick pace (free)
- #Race for the Galaxy - It's been a big of a "milestone" I've wanted to check off ($6.99)
- #Raiders of the North Sea - This is the most likely purchase I would make for the actual board game. It's at the bottom of my wishlist though, so I doubt it'll be within the next 1.5-2 years ($5.99 on Tabletopia, $14.99 on Steam, $9.99 on Android and iOS)
Now it's your turn! Any games you've been interested in? Or do you prefer to stick with simulators like TTS and Tabletopia 100%?
