App Review – Neuroshima Hex by Portal Games

The Neuroshima Hex app has been around for quite a while. Big Daddy Creations originally did it and it was actually not bad. But it became buggy as hell and the multiplayer (at least asynchronous) became virtually unusable. I enjoyed playing it but finally… Continue Reading “App Review – Neuroshima Hex by Portal Games”

Updated Neuroshima Hex App Coming in September

(Edit: 8/19/21) – Just confirmed with Portal Games on Twitter that the online play will have asynchronous options. Yay! One of the classic boardgame apps for iOS (and maybe Android? I’m not sure) was Neuroshima Hex, the 1-4 player duel game where each player… Continue Reading “Updated Neuroshima Hex App Coming in September”

Concordia Digital Edition in Beta Soon!

Just saw a tweet and received an email today from Acram Digital, the brilliant programmers behind Istanbul and many other great boardgame apps. Remember I mentioned that Concordia is the new game from them? They just released a trailer for it and the beta… Continue Reading “Concordia Digital Edition in Beta Soon!”

Dominion App From Temple Gates Games – Beta First Impressions

It’s really cool to be involved with something that not everybody else has access to. Hell, that’s why I started this blog! Not that this has really manifested too much, but I did manage to get into the beta version of the Dominion app… Continue Reading “Dominion App From Temple Gates Games – Beta First Impressions”

Classic Dominion Coming Digitally by Temple Gates Games

Boardgame Twitter was all abuzz this morning with the final announcement that the classic deck-building game Dominion, the game that started it all, will be coming out later this year as a digital app! The card game was designed by Donald X. Vaccarino and… Continue Reading “Classic Dominion Coming Digitally by Temple Gates Games”

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”
