Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone has come across some half descent board games on the iPhone. So far, I have Ticket to Ride, Elder Sign and Carcassonne, but am wondering if any companies have produced any more?

Settlers is pretty good, as are Monopoly and Risk. And Civilization Revolution is better than any of them.

If you'd like another recommendation, try HUNTERS. It's like Space Hulk mixed with XCom, a turn based game where your futuristic mercenaries fight with Missile Launchers and Thunder Hammers.

+1 Settlers.

I find Elder Signs a bit annoying, but good fun.

Neuroshima Hex! It takes awhile to get the hang of it, but once you do it's awesome. There's even a puzzle version, which is good for learning various tactics.

I am loving playing the Catan app now, it's such a great game (never played the board game). If only the board game were 2 player, the mechanics are easy enough to get my partner off games like monopoly and into games like this!

Neuroshima Hex is good, thanks for the tip. I find it is most interesting to play on hardest difficulty vs 3 opponents (4 player), but harder to win against just 1 opponent. Tha game is good enough that I've even bought both of the expansions.

Fans of Hex based wargames might like UNIWAR. Humans vs Mecha vs Zerg.

I'm really enjoying carcassonne on the ipad, the AI is pretty good and it has a superb tutorial and music score.

So I can now finally stop hitting refresh on the App Store as the gaming hotness that is Summoner Wars has now been released on the iOS. The game is free too, and you only have to pay if you want to purchase a new faction. Get it people!!!!
