App Review – Pavlov’s House

One genre of games I haven’t really gotten into, mainly because I haven’t had the opportunity, is solo gaming. There are many great-sounding solo wargames out there, but the idea of spending 2-3 hours playing a game on the table by myself just doesn’t… Continue Reading “App Review – Pavlov’s House”

Sagrada App – Early Access on Steam – First Look

(Edit 3/31/20) – Sagrada is now out on full release, iOS & Android! It’s $9.99 CDN for me, so maybe $7.99 US? Not sure. It requires you to be in Portrait mode, which I guess makes sense.  Here’s hoping that notifications work on the mobile… Continue Reading “Sagrada App – Early Access on Steam – First Look”

Boardgame Apps – Asynchronous Play Revisited

I’m a big fan of boardgame apps, either on mobile or on Steam. I love being able to play Ascension with buddies from all over the country and the world. For the most part, to do that requires asynchronous online multiplayer because it is… Continue Reading “Boardgame Apps – Asynchronous Play Revisited”

App Review – Morels

I don’t like mushrooms. Just imagining the texture and tasting them makes my skin crawl a little bit. I used to pick them off of my Supreme pizza, though now if I happen to get a piece of Supreme, I’ll grin and bear it… Continue Reading “App Review – Morels”

Mystic Vale Grows onto Steam – Early Access

We heard back in June that Nomad Games would be doing a number of Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) titles. These titles included Cat Lady (recently released this month during my blog hiatus), Space Base (an awesome game), and the card-crafting game Mystic Vale. Imagine my surprise when I heard… Continue Reading “Mystic Vale Grows onto Steam – Early Access”

Ascension – Valley of the Ancients drops on Digital

Hi, my name is Dave. And I’m an Ascension addict. I had a sponsor who was helping me with it, but when I showed him my online profile and the number of games I’ve played, he ran away screaming. I’m not sure how to… Continue Reading “Ascension – Valley of the Ancients drops on Digital”

App Review – Terraforming Mars – Steam

(Edit – 5/29/19) – Terraforming Mars is now in beta on iOS and Android devices, and it’s pretty good! Still some issues, though. (Edit – 12/1/19) – Terraforming Mars iOS & Android is coming out on December 4! I would assume it will have… Continue Reading “App Review – Terraforming Mars – Steam”

App Review – Istanbul

Rubies make the world go around. Isn’t that what Marilyn Monroe always said? (Editor – Dating yourself *and* being wrong all in one sentence. That’s quite the accomplishment!) If you’re a merchant in Istanbul in some vague time period of the past, rubies are… Continue Reading “App Review – Istanbul”

App Review – MeteorFall

One of the most highly-acclaimed (except for the artwork, which unfortunately drives some people away) rogue-like deck-building apps is Dream Quest. For many users, Dream Quest is the epitome of what a deck-building rogue-like game is, and every future game in the genre will… Continue Reading “App Review – MeteorFall”

Digidiced Going to the Beautiful Country

Digidiced has a long history (in output, not necessarily in time) of producing quality board game apps for Steam and your mobile devices. I love everything that they’ve done so far (except Cottage Garden, which I haven’t played because the game itself doesn’t do… Continue Reading “Digidiced Going to the Beautiful Country”
