Boardgames that Work Better as Apps (repost from Game Informer blog) @NomadGames #boardgames

In some of my social media postings, I have mentioned that Potion Explosion worked better for me in app form because it was too fiddly on the table. This brings to mind something that I’ve thought about quite a bit. What other board games have apps…

I am a big fan of the deck-building game Ascension. It was the first real game I played when I returned to the board-gaming world, so it’s always held a soft spot in my heart. At the beginning of March, Ultra Pro and Stoneblade Entertainment announced an…

Always love posting a pic of that table hog known as Firefly

Did my first Periscope Q&A session for the MET program. Did not go well, but I'm heartened for the possibilities in the future.

Played a new game yesterday, called Trickerion.

Worker placement, role management, some resource gathering.

Looking at my 2015 stats and removing all of the ones that I have only played online (either on iOS or Boardgame Arena), I still played 81 different board games.

Not a bad year!

Anybody interested in a 4-player game of Castles of Burgundy on Me and +Robert Schlumpberger want to get one going.

It will be asynchronous, so hopefully at least a turn a day, maybe a couple of turns depending on how your day goes.

If you are, post your username from over there and I'll include you in the invite.

Incidentally, if there are any other games on there that you'd like to play async, I'm always up for learning something!

Not sure what category to put this under, so please feel free to move it if it's in the wrong place.
