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?

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.

While Terraforming Mars is still in my Top 10 games played, the digital version had a bumpy ride after its… Continue Reading “App Review – Terraforming Mars – Prelude Expansion”

Concordia Coming to Apps via Acram Digital

Amazing what kind of news gets me to actually post again! Yes, I am working on other posts (including the next installment of the Top 200) and I know it’s been a while, but I couldn’t let this one pass without commenting on it.… Continue Reading “Concordia Coming to Apps via Acram Digital”

Evolution App Goes Asynchronous!

Evolution is a really vicious card game where players are adapting their animal species with card play. Food is scarce and it’s very possible, if you don’t play your cards right, that some of species will go extinct. Players may take all of the… Continue Reading “Evolution App Goes Asynchronous!”

App Review – Roll for the Galaxy

Until news of the app version for Roll for the Galaxy came out, I hadn’t actually played it in quite a while. I do remember really liking the game, though. As I said in my Top 100 BGG games post, it’s a game that… Continue Reading “App Review – Roll for the Galaxy”
