If you play boardgames and own Android powered devices you may be well aware that there are not as many implementations of actual boardgames for Android as there is for IOS powered devices. There is a list on BoardGameGeek of all the ones that exist, but that’s not the point of this post. For the holiday season there are a whole bunch of games and application that are on promotional sale and this includes some implementations of boardgames, so if you’ve fancied trying out a digital edition of a game on your Android phone, phablet, or tablet then maybe its time to take a try.
There is Reiner Knizia Tigris&Euphrates – down to $0.99 from $2.84, and Ticket to Ride – down to $1.99 from $6.99 which I’ve seen so far and purchased. I’ve just got a new tablet, Tegra Note 7, the new tablet from NVidia (well NVidia was working with several partners to produce the tablet after it lost being the chip choice for new Google Nexus (2013)), that was on a 2-day sale at £99.99 from £179.99 (so about $163 to any American readers), though its now on sale for £129, which is more a reasonable “normal” price than the original RRP. So I shall have a play and let you know how I get on.
